    cheap LCDs

    I just recently picked up a cheap $100 screen off of ebay, I didn't expect much of it but I just thought it would be fun to mess around with.
    My question is, what are the differences between cheaper screens and nice screens? Is there more of a difference than just picture quality? I'm fairly satisfied with the picture on my cheap screen but I'm just curious if it's going to burn out or stop working soon, anything like that.

    Also, I've heard a lot of people mention fahrenheit screens as a good budget LCD, does anyone have a link to somewhere besides ebay where I can find these for sale online?

    Thanks

    a friend of mine bought a lecacy 7.2 inch screen and it was by far one of the worst units I have ever seen...another one of my friends bought a pyramid 5.6 inch for his headrest and it was decent, but still not good enough to get my vote...

    the one I got is a 5.6" emerson or something like that, it was about $90. Not a great brand by any means but I figured that they'd at least be as trustworthy as pyramid or something like that.

    The picture quality is good, not amazing, but not awful by any means. It does have a pretty bad viewing angle though, does anyone know if the fahrenheit monitors have wide viewing angles?

    I dunno about viewing angles and such...

    but I DO know that cheap LCD's use recycled LCD panels... some choose to mention it, to make it appear like an environmental friendly company, whilst others simply do not mention it.
