rPI DPI Display, cheap.

Recently the internet noticed the Raspberry Pi could drive LCD panels using DPI. This allows very inexpensive displays to be used with basically no additional hardware.

This is not a full post, just capturing some details from someone elses blog post so I don't lose it (will my site become my next bookmark holder?).

Let’s add a dirt cheap screen to the Raspberry Pi B+


Total: $43.85

That being said, I see a Pi: 7" Display no Touchscreen 1024x600 w/ Mini Driver for $70 with no messing with HDMI.

I also recently purchased a 5" 800x480 screen with an hdmi driver off of a chinese vendor on ebay for $42.75. It just takes a month or so to arrive.
