There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The display comes with a stylus, which is a nice "touch". :~) The touch screen works fairly well except for the cursor "bouncing over there" all too often when I tap somewhere. I don't know if that is common to other displays or not since I don't normally use touch screens. Basically I hate touch screens, but I am pleased with how well this one is working so far.
The screen is pretty much useless in broad daylight and only slightly visible under overcast sky. I have very little experience with mobile devices so I don't know how the expensive stuff fares in that regard. The useful viewing angle seems strange, being farther above (30-40 degrees) than below (10 degrees) perpendicular on the vertical axis, but equal at +/-45 degrees on the horizontal axis. There are many scratches on the screen protector that came on the screen, but I don't dare remove it until I have a replacement protector sheet.
I bought this so that I could take my Raspberry Pi mobile, so I bought some Plastruct sheet stock & made a case to hold the Pi with the screen & a set of Eneloop AA cells. I included a slot for the stylus also. :~)
The display functioned right off, but not full size, just 640x480. The problems started when the instructions said to "copy the file \software\5inch_HDMI_LCD.tar.gz", which does not exist on the included DVD. I found a version of that on the web & downloaded it but didn't want to use it due to apprehension about where I got it from & the fact that it appeared to contain stuff for an older kernel version. Then I found that another reviewer here had asked about that same thing & got a reply to look at a certain wiki, which said to run the LCD5-show script in the LCD-show directory extracted from the "LCD-show..." tar file in the IMAGE directory of the DVD. I looked at that script & manually did the copying it did & the next thing I knew I was getting kernel panic crashes. After several hours of trial & error I finally discovered that the stuff in the cmdline.txt file was the problem & that none of the changes made to that file by the vendor were necessary to make the display & touch features work. This is primarily why I am rating this at 4 stars instead of 5--that and the fact that their shell script deletes the original files without making a backup copy. It's nice that the vendor tried to make the process of updating an existing installation easy but when doing so they should not permanently delete existing files! If they leave the old files there at least a reasonably Linux-savvy person could recover if there were problems with the new files. Since I did the changes manually I still had the old stuff to revert to while troubleshooting the problem. There was another thing or 2 the shell script did that it didn't need to. With kernel version 4.1.13-v7+ on the Rpi2B the only things I needed to do were change config.txt in the boot partition per the "config-5.txt" file, add the xorg.conf.d files, and install the calibrator package. If you get kernel panic after running their shell script, put the microSD card in another machine & mount the boot partition (even Windows should mount it since it's VFAT). Open the cmdline.txt file and delete everything after "rootwait", save the file & see if that works in the Rpi.
Software problems not unique to this hardware:
I thought that if I were going to use this very much I would want an on-screen keyboard & was happy to find that Raspbian has one called matchbox-keyboard. It works reasonably well--with a stylus, but there is a problem with it and the pcmanfm in desktop manager mode. When pcmanfm is running in desktop manager mode & the keyboard is run pcmanfm consumes an entire core of cpu--and continues to do so after the keyboard is closed. I found that "spacefm" can also be used as desktop manager so I installed spacefm & use that instead as it does not have that problem.
It would also be nice to be able to use xrander panning but I have not gotten that to work.
First, I had some issue with touchscreen. I used to get kernel panic. But I resolved it by editing cmdline.txt file before reboot. For screen resolution, just follow the instruction to change /boot/config.txt
Once you install don't use sudo ./LCD-show command (otherwise you will get kernel panic), just go to /home/pi/Downloads/LCD-show or whatever your file location. Open that folder and edit "cmdline.txt" file... from "root=/dev/mmcblkop2" -to - "root=/dev/mmcblkop7" . Then you give commands like dpkg.... and last Sudo ./LCD-show. it will reboot without kernel panic and touchscreen will work with raspberry pi 3 (jessie installed via noobs).
It is great small screen.
You should be aware that some of the default X desktop applications on the Raspberry Pi want a larger area than this supplies, so they crash. Also development on a Raspberry Pi will require good eyesight, as the characters, while clear, are small.
I am using this a status display for a personal project, it is perfect.
Mounting holes are: 115x84mm
The Adafruit 5", which works well too, has 112x84mm mounting holes, 3mm less width.
Here are the 3 lines that I added to config.txt, along with some comments. It might be best to just start with that before attaching the display. If you have an issue, just comment out these lines and plug back into your larger HDMI monitor that you started with.

Resolution is very good - the txt is almost too small to read so I am looking for a way to increase font size.
