Trying To Find Low Res Screen

Thu May 12, 2016 2:05 pm

I'm looking for a 3-5" screen with a resolution lower than 600x400. :/ I looked all over, but I couldn't find one. If someone could link me to one, that would be great.

I got this 3.5" 480x320 Tontec touch screen with case for my latest Pi: http://www.amazon.de/dp/B00OFLKPG4

Works well, display quality is decent.

I'm trying to get as cheap and as low resolution for the screen size as possible. :P
If anyone has seen one of those screens they use to make raspberry pi gameboys, that would work. :3

a lot of the pi Gameboy's usually use adafruit screens as they have full setup instuctions, but they are not cheap

Weird, I would think that such low res screens would be cheap. .-.

They're not cheap from Adafruit *because* they have full setup instructions and driver support. You could take a shot at the cheap screen from china via ebay or alibaba but good luck getting driver support or warranty from those companies.

That is a bit of a high resolution, but considering it's $15, I think it's good! ^_^
