Recommendations for a 7" VGA monitor

Postby SteKos » Aug Mon 16, 2010 2:05 pm

Vince, (and others)

I see in the manual you are using a 7" monitor for your Altair Micro. Got any recommendations on a model? I've been looking up some of the cheapo models on Google, found a couple of good options, but they look like they only include over-seas AC adapters.

Mine came with the wrong adapter, I went and made my own. I got mine on ebay I think a few years ago for around $50.

I went with a Miracle 9". It slightly narrower than the 8800, plenty light enough to sit on top (7LBS) and I found new old stock on eBay a few weeks ago. It's an MT209. I got mine for around $50 but I just saw a guy who has 10 to sell new in box on eBay for only $25 shipped. (Of course do your eBay FB research...that isn't the guy I got mine from)

I found a good deal on a 7" LCD TV/monitor on e-bay. Only $67, 800x600 resolution, has a mini-USB to VGA cable and composite video.

Between the monitor and the mini-PS2 keyboard, I've got a pretty good setup now.
