dsc 2618 1 $33 Board Turns Your Bare LCD Into Working Monitor

This is a question we hear a lot: “I have a spare LCD panel; what else do I need to make a monitor?”

This Chinese eBay seller has the cheapest out-of-the-box solution I’ve seen: If your LCD panel is in the list, send ‘em $33 and they’ll send you a controller board to drive it. If it’s not in the list, send them a message, first, and they may be able to help you out, anyway. Here’s one success story that caught our attention. [Thanks, Matt Mets!]
