I created e-ink display from Kindle DX device. Steps can be found on the internet, but due to their length I'm not going to reproduce them here. The point was to jailbreak Kindle DX, put a VNC viewer there and start a session. advantage: used Kindle DX is relatively cheap to buy disadvantage: 9.7" Kindle screen often is too small for use as PC display;...

It should also be noted that along with GPU memory and clock speed (see Enigma's answer) that the GPU should also post what version of port the card uses. The two most popular are HDMI/DVI and Display Port. Most 4k screens only accept HDMI (no DVI) and Display port (example), research what is supported on the model you plan to buy. Most sub-4k monitors ...

If you are planning to use it mainly for FPS gaming, and you are competitive in it, you are going to want to have a monitor that is 60hz - 144hz with a low response time <5ms. The 60hz - 144hz is your refresh rate and it won't matter what graphics card you have if you have a monitor that is only running at 30hz. If you're not on the competitive side ...

I was assuming you're pretty much going to have to get a TV at that price, and you might be running at a lower refresh rate. I instead picked up a Crossover 289K, sight unseen. Its an interesting series of compromises that seem to add up to something I'd recommend). I've been running it for over a year now, and its been fine so far. I paid ~ USD 350 with ...

Buy a tablet. In fact the amazon fire looks like a great option here. In fact, its cheaper than a 7 inch tablet with similar specs from my favoured crapgadget vendor Its a cheap, bog standard tablet (running fireos) , has a 7 inch ips screen and considering a raspi is 35 usd and this is 50 usd... its probably a pretty sensible option for what you have in ...

The Asus MB168B+ looks like it would fit your needs. It: is designed as a second monitor with a USB 3.0 cable to power it, and transfer video and data (also works on USB 2.0, but you may experience worse results video quality-wise) has a 15.6" screen with 1920x1080 resolution is very portable, weighing less than 2 pounds, and being about as thin as a pencil ...

Who's still developing non-smart TV's? Almost all of them? I believe your basic assumption is flawed. I'm assuming you're defining a "smart TV" as one that has installable/hackable software or at least some type of Internet connection. A quick search shows that there are still many, many TVs being developed and produced that have none of this; just a nice ...

I would recommend the LG 34UM95C. It is a great 34" WQHD 21:9 monitor that would be great for both movies and game. It is good for movies since it is a 21:9 ratio so the top black bars in movies are gone. Combined with the excellent color reproduction of the IPS display, it makes movies very enjoyable. The 5ms response time is also great for gaming for ...

“Less than 2 inches” and “ready to use without building a circuit” are difficult requirements to meet, but: Something like the display on the Apple Watch would be perfect. Then why not use it? Pick whichever smartwatch platform looks easiest for you to program for, and write an app that'll display your test images. Or maybe find one that already exists ...

If you just want a display, adafruit has a very nice 7" display for about 70usd. DX has screens that are considerably cheaper, slightly dubious build quality compared to what the adafruit screens seem to have, and somewhat variable shipping time (tho its currently a MVP product and they promise fast shipping . The controller board's the same on both I ...

Apparently the solution is one of two possible options. There is a DisplayPort standard called Multi-Stream Transport (MST) that was introduced with DisplayPort 1.2 (Wikipedia, n.d.). The other option is a display with a VGA in/out configuration. LG makes a series of monitors that provides this function, the N225WU-BN Cloud monitor, which is designed for ...

First of all, it would not be easy to find a monitor with a similar DPI as MacBook between 21" and 23". You must choose between screen size and pixel density. However, it is not very convenient to have a very high resolution on a relatively small display. Take it into consideration. If you change your mind and want non-Apple product as an alternative to ...

You can't yet. There's high frequency monitors but they seem to top out at 1440p in most cases. Some of them may have gsync. All existing 4k monitors top out at 60hz as far as I know since the 'common' flavours of HDMI (2.0 for TV oriented gear and high end video cards) and DP 1.2) don't have the bandwidth for 4k/UHD and 120hz at the same time. You'd need ...

Note/Update: thanks to comments I now realize that I missed the 16:9 requirement - the below basically applies to a 16:10 monitor. If that is not an issue for you (I have used both and do not really notice a difference), then read on.... When time came to replace my venerable Iiyama E511S in 2013 (after ~9 years of service) I did a lot of research - I ...

I personally have the BenQ GL2440 since december 2010 and a GL2450 since august 2014. They are really good monitors, with a good price-performance ratio. I really like them, because they are not too expensive and show the collors pretty good. Now BenQ has a newer version, the GL2460 which costs only 160€ currently on amazon Germany. Thus I would recomend ...

If a GPU says it can do 4k, that is a minimum requirement for a desktop environment. If however you're going to be doing 4k video/photo editing, you'll want to look at recommended GPU specs for the software you'll be using. GPU memory and clock speed are the next main concerns. If you're software is mainly CPU intensive, most 4k GPU's will be good enough.

First of all, I would make sure that you aren't circumventing any policies by using hardware rather than software, but I'll assume that the powers that be simply don't want you installing things on those laptops. It sounds like you are looking for an IP KVM or KVM over IP. The cost of such hardware may be more than you are hoping, but I think these ...

Your size requirements are a very odd size for monitors, so I don't think you'll find one exactly fitting your needs (short of having one custom made). That said, I have found some that are very close. The ViewSonic VA2055SM: - 8.3 x 18.6 x 11.3 inches - full HD 1080p, 20" diagonal - Currently $84.99, $171 regular - DVI & VGA (only the one with built-in ...

I found something! After looking for a few months, I came across this press release for the Aten 2-Port USB DisplayPort KVM Switch that specifically mentions support for displayport resolutions up to 4096x2160 @60Hz. I found it for sale on newegg and Amazon, and it looks like it's been out for while, but both sites only listed support for UHD resolution (...

HDR has been around for a while now but the technology is still in its infancy. You will see HDR TV's, but monitors are much harder to come by. Also, there is relatively little HDR content. It's going to be a rough transition, as sRGB is the standard, and until the conversion is made simple, or a shift is made to start producing content in this format, you ...

You can use KVM over IP for that purpose. You just need to connect your PC and your desk with ethernet cable. It's not so cheap and has some limitations for screen resolution, but maybe it can solve your problem. You can find examples of this devices here. Here is another wireless option Wireless Extender for HDMI.

Your requirements don't appear to be very specific: What OS (Windows, OS X, Linux, or other); Which platform (PC, Pi, Mobile device, mini PC, MCU); Which processor (Intel, ARM, Atmel); Which size (0.94" up to 14"); What resolution; Which input connectors (VGA, HDMI, DVI, USB) Most importantly - cost So, I will assume that you are fishing for ...

You want a KVM over IP device. Something similar to TRIPP LITE B055-001, would work (assuming, in this case, the server has PS/2 ports for the keyboard and mouse). This model is about $120. There are USB enabled ones as well, such as the StarTech SV5USBM, which has only one USB connection. Adding on more connectors raises the price from about $100 to ...

Belford's answer is probably the way to go. But, if you search around, you may be able to find a used IBM T220 or T221 or one of the rebrands. These monitors were sold between 2001 and 2005, with a native resolution of 3840×2400 pixels (WQUXGA) on a screen with a diagonal of 22.2 inches Their pixel density works out to 204 ppi. Due to their age, they ...

There are a few more factors than the ones you listed that will really play a part in how much you'll have to pay. One being the panel type and two being the input type(s). IPS panels (the screens that feel like glass) cost more but have a better viewing angle, more vivid colors, and they're usually a little more sturdy. TN panels (the screens that make ...

I recommend the IPS ASUS VX239H, €179 at Amazon.de. It has an IPS panel, which has better colour accuracy and viewing angles. It's quite slim, and consumes less than 22 W, according to ASUS. The brightness is 250 nits, not stellar, but it should be sufficient indoors. It does have internal speakers though. The 5 ms response time is good for IPS monitors, and ...

Which monitors that fit these parameters can you recommend? Unfortunately I cannot answer this to your satisfaction, as I was going to recommend the Asus PA248Q which is a 24" 16:10 monitor. Personally, I like the additional vertical real estate but you have your own preference. Still, you might look for a 16:9 variant from Asus since this model has a lot ...

If you want a modern TV without all the perceived smart-TV risk, just buy any TV with the features you want and disable the Internet and wireless settings. Boom, instant non-smart TV. I had a cutting-edge (for the time) 60" Sharp Aquos four-color 240fps 3D full HDTV for over a year before I turned the Internet on. I just had no use for it (at the time). ...

One of the few places where you can't go wrong with dell is their monitors. I don't own this specific model, but I can attest to them having excellent build quality The Dell 2417H is probably what you should be looking at, no pun intended. Dell lists them at GBP 245 on their website (with a discount), but you probably can comparison shop. These are really ...

The Asus PA329Q is out now: 4k, 32" 10-bit IPS Color spaces: sRGB, Adobe RGB Rec.709 DIC-P3 Rec. 2020, the wide gamut color space specified for HDR
