Yes, this is an adorable miniature television! The visible display measures only 2" diagonal, the TFT comes with a NTSC/PAL driver board.

The display is very easy to use - simply connect 4.5-15VDC to the red and black wires, then connect a composite video source to the yellow and black wire. Voila, a television display! There's a little button to adjust the LED backlight brightness (5 levels) - there is no other adjustment available but we found that the color and contrast look great right out of the box.

To demonstrate it, photos were taken with the display connected to a Raspberry Pi, but it will also work connected to any analog composite-video output such as a YBox or Propeller w/Video out. It will not work with a device that only outputs VGA, HDMI or any other digital video signal.

Please note, these miniature displays are very delicate and require care to avoid ripping the delicate flex connector. These are best used by electronics geeks who have experience and are comfortable working with delicate electronic components. WE CANNOT REPLACE DAMAGED DISPLAYS if you are not careful and rip the flex connector!

    great little display... but

    Overall: 3.5 out of 5

    Hooked this up to a raspberry pi. It being a composite input made it easy to setup. However, do not flex the ribbon cable too many times. While trying to figure out how I wanted to mount the driverboard behind the display, too many flexes caused the ribbon cable to tear, making the display useless. I almost want the ability to replace just the LCD since there's nothing wrong with the driverboard.
