mini monitors

Saw this today and thought it might make for a cool toy to be able to check if a video card was working or a monitor was on the fritz without cracking a case just by trying to plug th a little monitor like this

into a computer. Got picture…monitor is on the fritz, no picture, time to dig into the machine.

Unfortunately it looks like they all use composite video inputs :frowning:

are there any out there that use vga or DVI so they can be used on computers.

They exist. Search for “POS monitors”, as in “point of sale.” They are usually in the 9" range, mostly monochrome SVGA.
