Pustom 2.5" lcd

If you're making a portable you probably need something to watch it on. (Unless you want to guess what's happening in the game, but I wouldn't advise that) Anyway, this forum is your "Hacking a pocket TV/screen" one-stop solution. Share your experiences and knowledge here.

Well, I'm sure its bulkier than the PSone screen, but I doubt the whole case is filled with electronics. I opened up my Mad Catz 7" screen, and a lot of it is just empty space. Who knows, though.

It probably wont have great resolution, but will be fine for your purposes.

What does that translate to? A little under 400x300?

this seems to remind me of this screen here

it runs on 12V DC but there aren't any power cables included.

This screen is probably a better deal aswell considering price, and it loks a lot sleeker too, but the internals might be same...but probably not.
