most portable DVD players cost about the same and tend to have AV in. This monitor is fairly redundant as it has to be connected to a source.

i wanted a monitor to use in a project car, this gives me a couple of inputs (satnav + media system) so works for me i shall have a look for the DVD players tho...

Don't trust that 1440 resolution, they count the red green and blue as one pixel each, the resolution is actually 480*234.

1440x234 would be an aspec ratio of roughly 55:9. I am using a bit of estimation here, but the width of that screen doesn't look 6x longer that it's height...
If it were to be 16:9 widescreen, 416x234 would be the exact res for that height of pixels. I reckon dijital is spot on

see above

That is of course, assuming they are using sqaure pixels...

hard to see LCD in the car, sunlight is a pain

thats where the contrast Ratio comes in, i think this one is around 400:1, which isnt that good.

Customer service is terrible from here, I bought some earphones for my 9 year old daughter and the sent me a penknife by mistake, I contacted them and they said I should just keep the penknife and forget about it as it cost more. Only trouble is she keeps cutting herself when playing with it.

i suggest you find a 9 year old with more than 2 brain cells

Just modelled it in CAD lol!!!

Just used my brain and worked out that if it were the real res it would be Suuuuuper Widescreen!

Decent price tho. I bought similar before, think it was 10" and 800 x 600 or 1024 x 768. Either way, it's only just good enough res, this will be quite poor. Depends what you want to use it for though.
