For the price its well worth it seeing as most other pcb makers for pi projects charge well over 50$ for just a bare pcb still have to buy everything else its kinda funny

I have a feeling their price is going to be pretty decent as well (based on their other products)
(i predict around the £50-60, give or take a tenner)

I'll most probably get one :D ....



the screen looks like its something like this (without the board, which they've integrated in to theirs).....

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2-8-TFT-LCD- ... SwRYNb2PtS

its definitely not an SPI display (but could be wrong)


what is interesting is how they are implementing the power and shutdown (this could be used in other build/projects)....
you'll know once someone gets a chance to have a better look at it



its definitely worth getting.....
(especially at that price point)

You pretty much nailed it.

In his previous video ETA said he thinks it's an IPS, but he said too it's not mentioned anywhere.

We have to see.

It might well be a IPS display....

But the displayed I linked is also pretty decent...


Here it is in action (posted by ABH)

It looks (this is with NOOB eyes) to be the same display, just minus the touch digitiser....
(But It could be another display)

They look great for people looking to get a simple build to just play some ROMs, I think the custom builds on here are triumphant still but china cant be beat in price, people looking to just play some games these look like a great option.

I've found out more info for anyone interested. The screen is an 320x240 IPS display, it's also DPI.
