Customer Reviews

Functional but disappointing. This screen is totally functional, but it has two big down sides that you may or may not want to deal with. First is the viewing angle. It has an incredibly narrow viewing angle - maybe 10 to 15 degree vertically. The horizontal viewing angle is surprisingly broad. You can still see the screen when it is turned almost 90 degrees away from you. But that vertical viewing angle is a killer. If you have the screen sitting on a desk leaning back on the provided brass stand-offs, the screen is so badly washed out with brightness (whites) that you can't read text on the menus or dialogs. Viewing the screen from below isn't quite as bad, because rather than the whites overwhelming everything, the blacks come out. You can get about 20 degrees more usable tilt out of it that way. The colors are affected, but you can still read text in dialogs and menus. Photo viewing wouldn't work though. The colors change dramatically with any angle change of more than 10 degrees up or down.The second flaw with this screen is that there's no adjustability at all. The display image doesn't fill the entire screen, and it can't be adjusted. The brightness is fixed, and it can't be adjusted.Don't get me wrong, this is a $35 screen. I'm not expecting the image to be comparable to a $300 tablet or $200 desktop monitor. But it shouldn't be this poor either. When you compare it to similarly sized replacement LCDs for tablets and phones, you wonder why no one has made an interface for a common phone screen. 2Nice crisp low power screen. 5v powered! I bought this for a project to make a portable Recalbox (and or RetroPie) screen.Pros:Low power requirement, USB powered.Crisp Screen, very sharp and bright.Cons:Needs a good hdmi cable if your using the hdmi port, a couple cheap cables produced garbage on the screen/white/blank screens. (not really a con, just something I observed)Does not work with raspberry pi out of the box, have to change some settings. (see below)Getting it to work with Recalbox:After some searching, I found the right settings for my config.txtAll you have to add is the following to your config.txt#increase HDMI signal strength (just a black screen if not set!)config_hdmi_boost=4#remove black bordersdisable_overscan=1#set specific CVT modehdmi_cvt 800 480 60 6 0 0 0#set CVT as defaulthdmi_group=2hdmi_mode=87And you are up and running.Note, in recalbox you may have to edit some config files to force the emulators to use your default setting. Use your google fu to find which ones.I can't comment on the touchscreen as i'm currently not using it, but may revise this review later. 5Great secondary screen for a 3D printer!! This thing is nice! I purchased this to be a screen for my 3D printer and to act as a secondary interface for it through OctoPi. On a fresh install the screen came up right away, and with a quick "sudo apt update && sudo apt install install xinput-calibrator" I needed to update the config.txt in /boot/. So, another quick "Audi nano /boot/config.txt" and I had it open and ready for editing. From there I pasted in the following:hdmi_group=2hdmi_mode=1hdmi_mode=87hdmi_cvt 800 400 60 6 0 0 0dtparam=spi=ondtparam=i2c_arm=ondtoverlay=ads7846,cs=1,penirq=25,penirq_pull=2,speed=50000,keep_vref_on=0,swapxy=0,pmax=255,xohms=150,xmin=200,xmax=3900,ymin=200,ymax=3900Ctrl-x and y to close and save the update file. Then "sudo reboot" and lithe touch screen is ready for calibration.This is where I'm running into some problems. I have calibrated it several times and still can't quite get it working perfectly. I believe this is my fault, so I'm not going to knock a star off. 5An inexpensive way to add a video screen to your Raspberry Pi without tethering it to a full blown monitor When working with my Pi I found that I had a couple of choices -- plug a full blown monitor into it which didn't make it portable, or add code to it so I could remote into it from another computer. I wasn't ready for the latter, so I picked up this monitor. I found it easy to plug in, but relatively difficult to get to work with the Pi. Thankfully after combining instructions from multiple Amazon reviewers I was able to get it work. Here's what I did:In the file /boot/config.txt add the following text to the end of the file:#increase HDMI signal strengthconfig_hdmi_boost=4#remove black bordersdisable_overscan=1#set specific CVT modehdmi_cvt 800 480 60 6 0 0 0#set CVT as defaulthdmi_group=2hdmi_mode=87dtoverlay=ads7846,cs=1,penirq=25,penirq_pull=2,speed=50000,keep_vref_on=0,swapxy=0,pmax=255,xohms=150,xmin=200,xmax=3900,ymin=200,ymax=3900dtoverlay=w1-gpio-pullup,gpiopin=4,extpullup=1Save the config file and then do this:sudo apt -get install xinput-calibratorThis took me a lot of trial and error to get working. After starting from scratch a few times, i started backing up my SD card after every successful step so that rolling back something I screwed up wouldn't be so costly because I would have to undo everything.In the end, this works pretty good. The monitor works well as a monitor but the touch screen part of it is a little touch and go - I don't think it's quite as precise as I would like it. However, for the money it's a pretty solid value. 4Hassle free configuration on Raspbian Jessie with PIXEL After about 15 minutes had the screen and touch screen functionality working.Not a bad little display.Successfully configured with -Raspbian Jessie with PIXELImage with PIXEL desktop based on Debian JessieVersion: September 2016Release date: 2016-09-23Kernel version: 4.4My instructions: Open terminal and update the repositories:1. sudo apt-get updateAn upgrade to the whole system isn't needed but it is recommended:2. sudo apt-get upgradeNow for the configuration:3.

It is bright and crisp. The touchscreen works well. Installing it took me quite a few tries though, so I thought I would post my findings to help someone else.I have have only tested this on a Raspberry Pi 3 running Debian Jessie, but it may work on other versions and flavors.Strong recommendation: Do not bother downloading the so-called "driver" noted in various places. The version for Debian Jessie is really just a script that copies configuration files (that seem to have some errors) into your /etc/ directories that brick your device. Happily, there is no need to do this, you can easily modify the files yourself.Prior to connecting the new display, do the following:The only software you need is for the touchscreen. You can get this with "sudo apt-get install xinput-calibrator"Then edit /boot/config.txt to add the following lines:----------------------------------------------------------------------------------hdmi_group=2hdmi_mode=1hdmi_mode=87hdmi_cvt 800 400 60 6 0 0 0dtparam=spi=ondtparam=i2c_arm=ondtoverlay=ads7846,cs=1,penirq=25,penirq_pull=2,speed=50000,keep_vref_on=0,swapxy=0,pmax=255,xohms=150,xmin=200,xmax=3900,ymin=200,ymax=3900 <======Note this is all on 1 line!dtoverlay=w1-gpio-pullup,gpiopin=4,extpullup=1----------------------------------------------------------------------------------Shutdown the pi, and connect the display. When you power it back up, you should have a perfect display. You can now calibrate the touchscreen by running Menu-->Preferences-->Calibrate Touchscreen. Click each of the four targets when requested and then you will get a text window which explains what you should put into a calibration file. For the Pi, the filename should be /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/99-calibration.conf.And presto, you are done. I bricked my Pi 4 times getting this figured out...it is silly how easy it is once you know what needs to be done.Good luck! 5Fantastic touch HDMI display This monitor works excellent. It comes with a small stylus to make it easier and more accurate to use as a touch screen.Given the price, I'm not going to knock it by any stars. However, the viewing angle is not that great, but at the proper angle, it's very bright and clear.I've used it with a Raspberry Pi 3 and 2 B. There are settings you need to make to /boot/config.txt, which are documented well within all of these reviews. Strangely, the monitor comes with no documentation. Just to repeat what's already been documented, the correct settings are below. Simply append these to your existing config.txt. Use sudo nano /boot/config.txtedit /boot/config.txt to add the following lines:----------------------------------------------------------------------------------hdmi_group=2hdmi_mode=1hdmi_mode=87hdmi_cvt 800 480 60 6 0 0 0dtparam=spi=ondtparam=i2c_arm=ondtoverlay=ads7846,cs=1,penirq=25,penirq_pull=2,speed=50000,keep_vref_on=0,swapxy=0,pmax=255,xohms=150,xmin=200,xmax=3900,ymin=200,ymax=3900dtoverlay=w1-gpio-pullup,gpiopin=4,extpullup=1 5WORKS FOR PC INTERNAL STAT MONITOR This review is for all the people that are thinking about using this for a internal stat monitor on your PC. This works great for just that! You'll need to order a USB header to micro USB to run this, and a very thin and flexible HDMI cable. You will have to find a way to run it from the inside of your PC, and hook it up to the Gpu on the outside. It works if you do exactly what I told you. I wish someone did this review before me, because I would have spent Alot less time researching. 5Excellent Raspberry Pi Screen. Needs Better Support. PROS - Solid construction and decent screen quality for the price. Screen has on and off switch. No need for HDMI adaptors or cords. Can power on from screen or your micro computer.CONS - Downloading/finding correct drivers for your application. Lack or tech support from the manufacturer.CONCLUSION - I purchased this to use with a Raspberry Pi. I was able to follow the instructions from the seller along with some research and install the correct drivers. I did have to do some editing to my boot config file. Chances are if your thinking about purchasing one of these you have some programming knowledge already. Which you will need to take advantage of this thing. It's not plug and play but it does work and you'll have the same challenges with all third party screens. If your looking for a lower prices option but still quality then you should consider this 5 inch screen. I got two of them and so far so good. FYI Install the touch screen drivers appears more difficult then the regular ones and since I didn't need that for my application I didn't attempt to install or test that particular function.If you found this helpful please click the link below. Thank you. 4Nice screen. Find the right instructions. I followed the directions from this review for setting up my Raspberry Pi 3 with Raspian Jesse. I thought these were most helpful. (Don't forget so save your calibration settings. You have to do it by hand!):https://www.amazon.com/review/R3QVPHGJAQIYGW/ref=cm_cr_dp_title?ie=UTF8&ASIN=B013JECYF2&channel=detail-glance&nodeID=541966&store=pcA popular review has you use 800 400 in the CVT settings. That makes no sense. It should be 800 480. After following those instructions, the screen looks good and the touch works great. I will say that I made a backup of /boot/config.txt first:sudo cp /boot/config.txt /boot/config.txt.bakSome important points: it can get power from either the gpio pins if you slide those onto the Raspberry Pi OR from the USB OTG port. But you don't need to plug in the USB port if it's over the gpio pins. I'm using a 1500ma power supply and it powers the Pi, this screen, and my USB mouse and keyboard just fine. I can't do an accurate power measurement, though. If you use the GPIO pin header, not all of them are used but they will be difficult to access. That would be one case where the USB power and an HDMI cable would be useful.At least for me, if you boot without something connected to HDMI (either the screen or the TV) and then connect something to the HDMI (either the screen or a TV), nothing will show up. Rebooting will fix this. I can connect my Pi to a TV even after editing boot/config.txt for my Elecrow touchscreen. It doesn't look great on a TV but it works. This is good in case I need to edit /boot/config.txt again.The viewing angles are great left to right but very poor up and down.Just for kicks I tried plugging my Chromecast into it. Nothing appears. That's alright, though.Overall it's a pretty great little screen! I've ordered PCBs from Elecrow in the past and so I had no qualms or hesitations about ordering from them again, less so through Amazon. It's packed well and it shipped quickly. I wish there were a case or something for it. That would be cool!I received a discount on this product for giving this review.Edit: The viewing angles really are terrible. I've changed it from 5 to 4 stars. 4

Functional but disappointing. This screen is totally functional, but it has two big down sides that you may or may not want to deal with. First is the viewing angle. It has an incredibly narrow viewing angle - maybe 10 to 15 degree vertically. The horizontal viewing angle is surprisingly broad. You can still see the screen when it is turned almost 90 degrees away from you. But that vertical viewing angle is a killer. If you have the screen sitting on a desk leaning back on the provided brass stand-offs, the screen is so badly washed out with brightness (whites) that you can't read text on the menus or dialogs. Viewing the screen from below isn't quite as bad, because rather than the whites overwhelming everything, the blacks come out. You can get about 20 degrees more usable tilt out of it that way. The colors are affected, but you can still read text in dialogs and menus. Photo viewing wouldn't work though. The colors change dramatically with any angle change of more than 10 degrees up or down.The second flaw with this screen is that there's no adjustability at all. The display image doesn't fill the entire screen, and it can't be adjusted. The brightness is fixed, and it can't be adjusted.Don't get me wrong, this is a $35 screen. I'm not expecting the image to be comparable to a $300 tablet or $200 desktop monitor. But it shouldn't be this poor either. When you compare it to similarly sized replacement LCDs for tablets and phones, you wonder why no one has made an interface for a common phone screen. 2Nice crisp low power screen. 5v powered!

It is bright and crisp. The touchscreen works well. Installing it took me quite a few tries though, so I thought I would post my findings to help someone else.I have have only tested this on a Raspberry Pi 3 running Debian Jessie, but it may work on other versions and flavors.Strong recommendation: Do not bother downloading the so-called "driver" noted in various places. The version for Debian Jessie is really just a script that copies configuration files (that seem to have some errors) into your /etc/ directories that brick your device. Happily, there is no need to do this, you can easily modify the files yourself.Prior to connecting the new display, do the following:The only software you need is for the touchscreen. You can get this with "sudo apt-get install xinput-calibrator"Then edit /boot/config.txt to add the following lines:----------------------------------------------------------------------------------hdmi_group=2hdmi_mode=1hdmi_mode=87hdmi_cvt 800 400 60 6 0 0 0dtparam=spi=ondtparam=i2c_arm=ondtoverlay=ads7846,cs=1,penirq=25,penirq_pull=2,speed=50000,keep_vref_on=0,swapxy=0,pmax=255,xohms=150,xmin=200,xmax=3900,ymin=200,ymax=3900 <======Note this is all on 1 line!dtoverlay=w1-gpio-pullup,gpiopin=4,extpullup=1----------------------------------------------------------------------------------Shutdown the pi, and connect the display. When you power it back up, you should have a perfect display. You can now calibrate the touchscreen by running Menu-->Preferences-->Calibrate Touchscreen. Click each of the four targets when requested and then you will get a text window which explains what you should put into a calibration file. For the Pi, the filename should be /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/99-calibration.conf.And presto, you are done. I bricked my Pi 4 times getting this figured out...it is silly how easy it is once you know what needs to be done.Good luck! 5Fantastic touch HDMI display This monitor works excellent. It comes with a small stylus to make it easier and more accurate to use as a touch screen.Given the price, I'm not going to knock it by any stars. However, the viewing angle is not that great, but at the proper angle, it's very bright and clear.I've used it with a Raspberry Pi 3 and 2 B. There are settings you need to make to /boot/config.txt, which are documented well within all of these reviews. Strangely, the monitor comes with no documentation. Just to repeat what's already been documented, the correct settings are below. Simply append these to your existing config.txt. Use sudo nano /boot/config.txtedit /boot/config.txt to add the following lines:----------------------------------------------------------------------------------hdmi_group=2hdmi_mode=1hdmi_mode=87hdmi_cvt 800 480 60 6 0 0 0dtparam=spi=ondtparam=i2c_arm=ondtoverlay=ads7846,cs=1,penirq=25,penirq_pull=2,speed=50000,keep_vref_on=0,swapxy=0,pmax=255,xohms=150,xmin=200,xmax=3900,ymin=200,ymax=3900dtoverlay=w1-gpio-pullup,gpiopin=4,extpullup=1 5WORKS FOR PC INTERNAL STAT MONITOR This review is for all the people that are thinking about using this for a internal stat monitor on your PC. This works great for just that! You'll need to order a USB header to micro USB to run this, and a very thin and flexible HDMI cable. You will have to find a way to run it from the inside of your PC, and hook it up to the Gpu on the outside. It works if you do exactly what I told you. I wish someone did this review before me, because I would have spent Alot less time researching. 5Excellent Raspberry Pi Screen. Needs Better Support. PROS - Solid construction and decent screen quality for the price. Screen has on and off switch. No need for HDMI adaptors or cords. Can power on from screen or your micro computer.CONS - Downloading/finding correct drivers for your application. Lack or tech support from the manufacturer.CONCLUSION - I purchased this to use with a Raspberry Pi. I was able to follow the instructions from the seller along with some research and install the correct drivers. I did have to do some editing to my boot config file. Chances are if your thinking about purchasing one of these you have some programming knowledge already. Which you will need to take advantage of this thing. It's not plug and play but it does work and you'll have the same challenges with all third party screens. If your looking for a lower prices option but still quality then you should consider this 5 inch screen. I got two of them and so far so good. FYI Install the touch screen drivers appears more difficult then the regular ones and since I didn't need that for my application I didn't attempt to install or test that particular function.If you found this helpful please click the link below. Thank you. 4Nice screen. Find the right instructions. I followed the directions from this review for setting up my Raspberry Pi 3 with Raspian Jesse. I thought these were most helpful. (Don't forget so save your calibration settings. You have to do it by hand!):https://www.amazon.com/review/R3QVPHGJAQIYGW/ref=cm_cr_dp_title?ie=UTF8&ASIN=B013JECYF2&channel=detail-glance&nodeID=541966&store=pcA popular review has you use 800 400 in the CVT settings. That makes no sense. It should be 800 480. After following those instructions, the screen looks good and the touch works great. I will say that I made a backup of /boot/config.txt first:sudo cp /boot/config.txt /boot/config.txt.bakSome important points: it can get power from either the gpio pins if you slide those onto the Raspberry Pi OR from the USB OTG port. But you don't need to plug in the USB port if it's over the gpio pins. I'm using a 1500ma power supply and it powers the Pi, this screen, and my USB mouse and keyboard just fine. I can't do an accurate power measurement, though. If you use the GPIO pin header, not all of them are used but they will be difficult to access. That would be one case where the USB power and an HDMI cable would be useful.At least for me, if you boot without something connected to HDMI (either the screen or the TV) and then connect something to the HDMI (either the screen or a TV), nothing will show up. Rebooting will fix this. I can connect my Pi to a TV even after editing boot/config.txt for my Elecrow touchscreen. It doesn't look great on a TV but it works. This is good in case I need to edit /boot/config.txt again.The viewing angles are great left to right but very poor up and down.Just for kicks I tried plugging my Chromecast into it. Nothing appears. That's alright, though.Overall it's a pretty great little screen! I've ordered PCBs from Elecrow in the past and so I had no qualms or hesitations about ordering from them again, less so through Amazon. It's packed well and it shipped quickly. I wish there were a case or something for it. That would be cool!I received a discount on this product for giving this review.Edit: The viewing angles really are terrible. I've changed it from 5 to 4 stars. 4
