PEAK Backup Camera 7 inch Screen

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.

I searched and found one at samsclub... not the closest one to me but reasonable distance...

good find, thanks... $50 makes my decision about what screen to buy easier. vga loses for this project.

An hour ago I saw this listed on the Sam's Club website for $49.81 (at my local store). This seems to be a lot cheaper than anything found on ebay.

My wife has a Sam's Club membership card... and we go quite often for groceries.

Would anyone be interested in setting up a group-buy?

I'm not sure of the weight of this item... so I cannot (yet) quote a shipping price... but I'd guess somewhere between $5 and $15 for the continental US (note: I'm not adverse to repackaging the items should weight prove a problem).

Let me know.

Would you be willing to ship to germany as well? If so, how much?

If the 7" screen is of such good quality, anyone wanna try that one?

I don't know... I don't know what the unit weighs in packaging, so I cannot give an accurate estimate.

Mr. BadWrench: when you buy the unit... could you weigh it (in it's packaging) before you open it?

Anyone else who bought the unit... do you know what it weighs (packaging included)?

Kyo: once I know the weight I'll get a price quote from USPS/UPS/Fedex/etc and get you the lowest price.

Kyo: I just checked amazon.com... and they have the weight listed like this:
# Item Weight: 3 pounds
# Shipping Weight: 8 pounds

The two cheapest options via USPS are:
Priority Mail Small Flat Rate Box* (up to 4 pounds) $13.45 <<-- this one only works if I strip out everything but the screen itself
and
Priority Mail Regular Flat Rate Box (FRB-1) (up to 20 pounds) $43.45 <<-- this one covers the entire unit... packaging and all

The others are even more rediculous. The above is the cheapest I can find.

You can ship 1st Class Mail International Package to International locations. Up to 4 pounds I think and it can be in a box up to 24" max total dimensions LxWxH. But you have to take it into the Post office and it takes 2-4 weeks usually.

A 3 pound package to Canada is around $12

They're the same brand, so I think it is appropriate.

Hi

With this screen does it have a 4:3 option for ps2 games?

Also what's the contrast like compared to say the Joytech 8" Screen for the ps2?

Is the viewing angle pretty good it says 110

Thanks

josh

Don't most PS2 games have the option to change to 16:9?

Some, but not all.

Also, can anyone guess the resolution on this screen? Sounds like a great screen.
