Monitor recommendations

I have finaly got round to putting my RaPi into a case and got it up and
running. (B+ 512M)
I am now looking for a smallish monitor, idaelly around 10"-13" which can
do 1920x1024.
There seem to be quite a few on Ebay, all from China, which I am a bit
suspicious of and one on Amazon

Has anyone any experience of theses or other similar monitors.

Go to Currys / Dixons and avail yourself of a small digital TV; most have HDMI inputs these days.

BE CAREFUL.
I have moved from terrestrial Digital TV to satellite by stucking a card into my home server and using the TV as an HDMI connected monitor. There is a perceptible delay (~200ms) between e.g. moving the mouse and seeing the cursor move that did not happen with a purpose built monitor.

The Pi is small and compact, I want a small compact monitor to go with it.

I did order a 15" chinese monitor from amazon - it was a scam. Never came, I finally got a refund. My advice: stick with ~20" tv or, I found a 5" touchscreen monitor that wasn't too high - but that is small.

Rapid Electronics sell a 7" (800x480) touch screen with a case enclosing

lcd-75-0756
I've seen and handled one when a mate brought it to the pub.
It looks reasonably made and fairly strong. The screen is crisp and plenty bright enough for indoor use. I believe there's room for an expansion card but the case is not splashproof because it has cut-outs for access to the USB and RJ45 sockets. There is no room for a battery in the case: its just a slim fit plastic shell for the screen with a bulge on the back to fit round the RPi.

How's the resolution on that? Good enough for e-books?

I didn't look at that, mainly because I'd use it as a control box for the multifunction timer in an electrically powered free flight model aircraft. I was planning to do the graphics with GTK2 front-ending C, but I see that the recommended graphics is the Kivy framework, which only seems to have support Python bindings. However, bearing in mind that a bog standard VGA screen is/was 640x480 pixels, so this is effectively a somewhat wider VGA screen. A VGA display in normal text mode displays 24 lines of 80 characters, so the equivalent mode on this would be a 24x100 display, with characters drawn in something like an 7x16 matrix. Total line height, including the whitespace between lines, is 20 pixels.

would the official rpi 7" touch screen work for your needs?

Why the Pi 1B+ and not the Pi 3B ?

Try they have many sizes, even watertight. We use them on ships for Inland ECDIS with a Pi 2B/3B and OpenCPN. Good Luck in finding the right model, most have VGA or DVI-D, or HDMI. There are FayTech importers in Europe too.

Several monitors advertised on Amazon and Ebay (In Brit, at least)

Because it's what I've got, I've had it a long time.
The stimulus to get on and do something, came from the purchase of an Ident computer "micro-one", at the RISC OS South-West show last weekend, at a very good price.
Thanks, I'll check it out

^^^^^^^^^^^^ You need to add the follow-on - lcd-75-0756 - to complete the URL and then it works OK
Cheers.

I did!
Never mind, it worked this morning.
However, the resolution is much lower than I was looking for and as the Pi is nicely cased up, I need HDMI input,

I thought that looked rather neat until I realised they didn't take the opportunity to build a PSU into the keyboard. As it is I'd rather hang the Pi on the monitor and use a wireless keyboard with built-in touch- pad (and a trackball for mouse-intensive work).

In the end I bought the Wimaxit 10". The stand is a bit feeble but the monitor itself is fine. Yes it can run 1920x1080 and it's crisp and clear.
