Small screen

Postby Techfreak-SSM » Sat Apr 11, 2015 8:19 pm

I'm looking at getting a small screen, for chat and voice programs. As i currently have a small space under my monitor setup but not enough for a full sized monitor if that makes sense.
Thinking something about 7" in diagonal.

Hey Tech, lots of them about mate, but I've never found one that's a reasonable price :( http://linitx.com/category/7-and-8-inch-screens/185 Due to my love of monitors, it's probably a good thing, I should not have more than 6!

Couldn't you get a cheap netbook/tablet to fill that role, even if it's just a remote session to your pc?

£162 for an 8 inch monitor! Only composite input too :?

I've just picked up a Dell 1708FPF 17" 5:4 monitor with height adjustable tilt/swivel stand for £30...and it has DVI and VGA.

Thanks for the link James, agreed bit on the pricey side.

Jani - I have a 15" monitor as a backup screen, the only issues is lack of room/desk space.

Sony make a 0.7 inch screen with 720p resolution if pixels per inch means everything to you :)

If online bullying has taught us anything. It's that people would sooner hang themselves than lose a bit of weight.
