To whom it was that turned me on to LVDS last night, thanks. I don’t remember your name. (I should have said it one more time ) As I said, I have 3 laptop displays that I’d love to dedicate to the Raspberry Pi.

It turns out that there are a few links on it:


I went to order the $34.99 converter…and they wanted $55 shipping. WTF? Trying to find alternative shipping.

I believe that was me, and thanks for posting all this! Considering how often we have dead-laptops-with-probably-okay-LCDs around the Hive, combined with Raspberry Pis that could use screens, this could prove useful. Let us know how it goes.

I’m trying to locate decent cables too. I think this should work…http://www.alibaba.com/product-gs/536331982/LVDS_CABLE_OF_HIROSE_DUPONT2_0.html I’ll find out. though.

Were you looking at Chalkboard Electronics? Change your shipping method to standard air - it will be $17.20 instead of $55.

I was about to get rid of a handful of laptops that belong to the Hive on Craigslist. Do you guys want the screens off them? They’re older laptops.
