7" portable monitor for the price of a parking ticket [UPDATE]

June 16th, 2011

Some people said I’m reporting too much about expensive gear. And they might be right. We’re indie filmmakers and we want to get our no budget movies done before we win that lottery fortune.

So here’s something affordable: In fact this (“recertified”) monitor by not so well known company Haier costs less than a parking ticket, less than the articulating arm that could support it, and certainly much less than all we’ve spent on fighting malware this year.

It might be one of those products that has a lifespan of “out of the box and right into the trashcan”, but if we look at the user reviews (“Not the best, but not horrible.”) on the seller’s page, it could be more useful than we think.
Who has ideas for applications for this device?
It offers a “high resolution display” which I guess is something between 320×240 and 640×480 and has a built in battery. 90 days warranty.

Oh yes, it’s $25

[UPDATE]:
Sold out on Newegg, get it on Amazon for 50 bucks
