| Composite/TV Screens
|| SPI Screens
|| DPI Screens
|| HDMI Screens
- Simple to install
- Usually only need 1 wire (plus power & ground).
- Low Resolution
- Analog nature makes them sensitive to interference and ghosting.
- Many different variations makes standardizing difficult.
- Often better resolution than Composite/TV screens
- Digital nature makes perfect picture clarity
- Typically needs 7-10 wires, more than Composite, but less than DPI.
- Often designed as "Hats" that sit on the pi taking up a lot of space and all the GPIO pins even if not needed.
- Can vary wildly on driver support. Even some well known sellers can unofficially EOL these by not updating drivers and install guides
- SPI has very low bandwidth, leading to stuttering and FPS issues.
- Are often 16:9 ratio rather than 4:3 like the Composite screens: Fitting into a GBZ may be difficult or impossible.
- Often very high (nearing cell phone ppi) resolution
- Amazing image quality
- Can reach 60fps
- The most expensive option
- Will use all or nearly all GPIO pins
- Often designed as "Hats", making them large & thick.
