Did you get your hands on a Raspberry Pi and need a little monitor to complete your tiny desktop computer? Or maybe you just need a good field monitor. This TFT LCD from Lilliput is the answer to your problems! It runs on only 12VDC and takes several types of signal input, including HDMI. Also, the native resolution of the monitor is fairly high for an inexpensive 7" display at 800x480.
Simply power the screen with the included 12V wall wart adapter or car adapter and connect an HDMI or Composite video source and you're ready to go. The screen is lightweight and portable and has built-in brightness and contrast control, which is ideal for field use.
Note: This is not a touchscreen, the box is lying to you. The manual is also a dirty liar, saying it comes with a VGA/USB cable. Don't believe these lies.

I wanted to check out the RPi world and wanted the most straightforward, reliable way to get there. Figuring that the native video from the Pi is HDMI, and that I'd want portability later, I bought the 7" monitor. It is impressive, reliable, and portable. At 1080p on the 7" screen, the text output at the start of a boot is SMALL (duh) but readable. The GUI looks great on it. I intend to use it when visiting friends to get them interested in RPi.

Didn't use it on a Pi,but needed a small 12v monitor for an aprs (ham) system. With a very small W10 system and this monitor it all fit in a small box with backup battries
