Hey,

We are trying a funny number displaying project, and would like to use a big screen(30 cm) but from what I can see already the prices range from 400 euros to 1500 euros! Does anyone have in mind a cheapest solution?

cheers,

Giannis

If you are only displaying numbers, you can build a big 7-segment display with regular LEDs.

If you really want a VGA display, 14" or 15" are dead cheap nowadays. You can probably do a deal with a local household recycling site and get old monitors / TVs for free / little money.

David.

You can put lipstick on a pig, but it is still a pig.

I've never met a pig I didn't like, as long as you have some salt and pepper.

That florescent tube clock was way cool. Wonder if McHenry Illinois would like one of those

Did you try to divide 30cm by 2,54?
It is 11 inches.
Where did you get that prices? Does this screen come with four laptops attached?
