anyone use this screen before?

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.

Anyone have any experience with this screen? My main question is what voltage it might run off, etc. Also anything else you caan tell me about it will be helpful . Thanks.

I have one of those. It takes 12v in and has a 5v switching regulator to bring it down (so you could run it straight off 5v if you wanted)

The analog to digital conversion is horrible - washed out colors, line crawling, bad whites. My board died after running for 10mins.

The LCD itself didn't look bad, but the board driving it was crappy
