Screens You CAN and CANNOT Use

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.

You asked if it would be considered UNUSABLE.
And I said "Yes", as in "Yes, it is Unusable".

That's way too much to pay for a screen. You should be able to get a sony ps1 screen for $60 max.

Reread that until you realize your mistake. God, that are liek the stupidest mistake that are ever made. And, bumping a sticky is supar pointless, it's already at the top of the page.
