Used this screen to connect to my raspberry pi that runs the candle software to control my CNC machine. The screen displays at 1920x1080 via HDMI port, which is my default resolution that I set on my raspberry pi. This now makes my mini CNC completely stand alone and portable. The touch interface (once calibrated) is fantastic, no longer need my wireless mouse and keyboard to be connected! Its a nice crisp display, I highly recommend this screen.
I originally planned to use this with my Raspberry Pi as a Photobooth screen interface, but developing the API and code was harder than I thought, so I used a Meegopad Windows 8.1 compute stick and DSLRBooth software. It was a hit at the parties, and people like being able to control the photobooth via touch screen. I recently updated to Windows 10, so the drivers are compatible and works ok. Pros: Price, resolution, accuracy. Cons: Touch screen layer has some minor flaws, I can feel a bump or some object wedged inside the touch screen, thankfully it was not visible, but it can be annoying if you slide your hand on top of it. Not a native touch screen as Windows seems to treat it as a touchpad and doesn't automatically show the on-screen keyboard when in the login screen. It would also be nice if there was a surround or case available. I had to buy an old picture frame cut it to size and mount the LCD in front of the photobooth case. Driver board was also huge, hence it will be an issue if you want to build a tablet with this.
I originally bought this to make a portable Raspberry Pi Laptop, but when my daughter wanted to have a photobooth for her party, and I found out the outrageous prices they were charging, I opted to build a photo booth instead. I already have a Pipo X7 (small Windows 8.1) PC, so I cannibalized an old subwoofer case, put the touchscreen in front of it, punch a hole for the camera, installed everything inside the case (powerstrip, camera (external power for the camera), Pipo X7, controller for the LCD, punch a small hole for the wires for the LCD/touch screen and voila, a small photobooth... Install DSLRBooth, add a speaker tripod stand, wifi printer and you got a working photobooth. It became the hit of the party as making the photobooth touch screen allows people to basically do everything on screen and no need for external buttons, or keyboards.
I know, it's easy to plug your pi into any monitor, but making a 'stand alone' is way cool. I'll hook this up to my electric scooter, add a camera, and voila, scooting has never been such fun. Great product, great price and tons o' fun.
