    FIVE Star HVDS Display

    Posted by campbell-graves on 10th Oct 2017

    A great, low-cost, and easy to install LVDS display with low power consumption and higher resolution than is commonly found in similar seven-inch displays. Based on decades of development experience, I believe this is an ideal touch-screen LCD for development environments needing smaller-sized displays, AND it is perfect for DIY portable development and laptop projects. On a five-star scale, this product may even deserve a ten-star rating. In my view, this display is a definite YES to great value and another YES on pressing the Buy Now button, now. Oh yeah, I am not in anyway connected with any of the people designing, making, distributing, or otherwise paid for the sales or promotion of this product. I paid retail, getting a super product from a great company and nothing more,
