thanks! the screen is only 2.2", it is a bog standard ili9341 http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/301884935685

they do them in 2.2, 2.4, and 2.8. I have seen some 3.2 inch ones now and then, just make sure its 240x320

I actually have a very good contact in China and they have 1.8 inch all the way to 3.2inch SPI 240x320 so there are ways to obtain these sizes if you look hard enough and that GBA project GamePie Advance uses such a screen in 3.2 inch size (2.8inch is almost a perfect fit from my testing) so it's a decent screen to use for on the cheap.
My Sale Threads:

Retro PSU, 3.5A output!


Chat with me and other members


Don't contact me about obtaining my board files (as you will not get them). Don't contact me about any of my boards if they are sold out, they will be restocked as soon as I can get them.


Don't support thieves like ckliang who copied my AIO to resell and is now cloning the mintyPi, support the original creators and not the thieves!

I've seen 2.2", 2.4", and 2.8" ili9341 screens on Aliexpress. Are these the spi screens to look for?

yeah, they all look good, but you don't necessarily "NEED" them to be PCB mounted, and the memory card reader will almost certainly be a waste of time on the Pi (though I think a few people have gotten them working?)

this one looks interesting from a mounting perspective... (could have it solder to the PCB below it (as you look at it) so it wouldn't need to take depth behind it)
