Cheap and good – PL8006 Portable 8" Color LCD Monitor TV w/ YPbPr + VGA Input (47~870MHz) Reviews
posted by RichieDuke on 05/15/2011
Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month
- Real 800x600 resolution. Accepts other pc resolutions with auto scaling down.
- Good enough to handle anagliph 3d viewing (with sku.41565)
- very good viewing angles and colors.
- it's the cheapest i've seen with highest (real) resolution.
- disassembly is very simple fot diy proyects. Inside components are few and small, it's mostly empty space inside.
- It's bright and the sound is not bad.
- When in VGA you can hear the sound from AV. (is either a pro or a con depending on how you see it).
- It remembers source/channel and settings after power loss.
- Unlike the pictures all my cables came in black!
- The description says PAL+SECAM-D/K I B/G, which led me to believe all PAL norms were accepted, but it's actually PAL D/K I B/G + SECAM. This is a problem for me since my country (Argentina) has PAL-N (air) or PAL-NC (cable). Odd enogh, when conecting thru AV pal-n is used correctly. I tried to chage the cable/air tunner but no replacemet was found (yet).
- It has only one speaker inside (despite the holes you see in the pictures), it's not stereo, and the board doesn't support adding another one.
- Only works plugged in. But since it's 12v 400ma making a "battery" for it shoudn't be hard.
-Great product, would definitely buy another one for surveillance, extra laptop monitor, bathroom tv, etc.
-It would be great if it had a PAL-N air/cable tunner.
-This paired with a small multimedia player such as sku.59559 and a "battery" of some sort would be awesome!
- Can't discuss about the air/cable tunner since it doesn't work in my country.
Dx screwed me with the description, but I should have researched more about tv norms BEFORE I bought it. Still no regreats, great product.
