    Question on this 7" lcd

    I was looking at one of these 7" Samsung monitors on Ebay.

    Seems it is powered soley by usb,, no power cord and no vga etc.
    Says it is 800X480 resolution and can be used as a second monitor for your pc.

    And a very good price.

    I can,t seem to find a fault at using it for a cockpit GPS or FMS etc.

    Maybe someone else who knows more about this kind of thing could give an opinion.

    Thanks.here is a link to one on Ebay

    Those are actually Samsung photo frames. There was a thread awhile back here about that. It went into detail about them. I guess search here for "samsung photo frame".

    The link provided is actually a monitor as Spitfire9 says.
    The Pietila brothers are going to make an avionics update using that monitor. They will use 2 pcs of Reality XP's Garmin 430 units shown on this unit rotated 90 degrees.

    Thats why I thought they were so interesting.
    They are not photo frames but can be used as a second monitor.

    With only one usb cord to run ,it sure seems like a great idea.

    I take it , that you would not have to hook it to your video card ,, so I wonder how it would work on a cpu that is already running 2 monitors off of a single video card ??

    Yep, the graphics processor in these panels are in the display. Same PC display functionality of the photo frame versions though. USB2 connection. Why I mentioned the Samsung photo frames is that they do the same thing at the same resolution and in some cases are cheaper.

    Re: Question on this 7" lcd

    Heres another thought if anyone is interested. Sabrent offers an adapter for the usb that will allow up to 6 additional monitors without using a video card. I went to the Sabrent website and looked at the unit for the PC. Not sure if it will do what we need, but looks like it is worth looking at.
