First of all, in describing it, the screen size that you will get out of the box is about the size of a PalmPilot's (close to 3.5"), and it will come with a flexible arm and mini-stand attached to it that you can adjust however you like, with a sticker underneath in case you want to mount it to anything. In short, it is really a baby LCD flat panel.
On the back are three buttons: Menu, +, and -. There is no menu--simply press the buttons to alternate between Brightness, Contrast, and "Colorast" (or how much color you want--0 is grayscale), and finally OK or Reset. With that said, settings are very simple to configure on it.
Now, we get to the last (and fun) part. You can splice two cords together to get power if you wish, but I simply connected a 1.0 A (1000 mA), 12 V (and under 4 W) power adapter, which works efficiently well. I'm mentioning this to be helpful in case anyone else wants to connect this to their favorite little computer using an easier method. :) You can easily connect any spare yellow RCA video cable, and the picture is surprisingly clear! To get specific, with good enough eyes, you can read 12 pt text in Sans or Monospace (though anything lower becomes harder to read--although I can still read size 10) and this monitor drives a 656x416 resolution according to xrandr (a little bit under 640x480).Read more ›
Only down fall is it comes with a power chord that plugs in and then has to be hard
wired into something for power. What I did was took an extra Car charger, usb kind, and spliced
it, connected it to the moniters power wires, plugged in the usb car charger, connected it to
the moniter and then the yellow and white chords to my dVR thing, and Bingo Bango, we got video..
Here's the deal, thirty bucks and a little creativity with no issues later. The screen in nice too!
or spend big bucks and have the same outcome.. thats all folks!!
I do not actually intend to use this in my car though. I actually intend to use it with an arduino and RC FPV projects. (A back up monitor, I would not recommend this as a primary at all) For $20 with free shipping, I am thinking about buying a second one to use in my car though.
I have done a little experimenting with this LCD and it actually seems to have a large voltage spike on start up. So much so that it actually burnt out a 12v camera that was connected to the same power source. If you are going to use this, I recommend a diode and a suppressing cap on the battery line.
When I received the 2nd camera I wired it into the monitor and discovered that line 1 no longer worked, but line 2 was working. Because I needed both lines working I ordered another monitor and camera and am in the process of returning the first monitor and camera.
I've now received those items and have both cameras installed and feeding into the new monitor. So far everything is working great! (knock on wood). I don't know what went wrong with the first install, but now they are all working and I love the picture quality! I'm always amazed how low priced after-market items are often better than the standard OEM items. The picture quality that I get with these two $15 rear-view cameras and a $25 monitor far exceed that that came standard in our Lexus RX-350.
Three stars simply because of the first failure but if the replacements keep working then it's 5 stars!
