CLOSED NO MORE ORDERS
I Ordered screens the night before last should be here week on monday.
looks cool and would look GR8 in my curent met black bloooo lit mod.
what method of payment would you be using? & how many dose it take to make it a group order & worth while ?
so far i think we've got four (me included and one of my friends) To make it worthwhile we need about 10 people - 15 people. That makes it really worth while though .
will it firt in a 5 1/4" bay.
and will it get cheaper then £20 if we find more people to order it. altho £20 is a deal for a graphic display.
what other parts do i need for it after i got the unit. and will some 1 send what pin needs to goto what pin on the paralell connector
in short yes im in.
Though the visible part will fit a 5 1/4" bay, the whole thing including frame and PCB will not fit. It should fit in 2 x 3.5" bays nicely.
It is a beautiful display, my only gripe is that it is relatively small compared to other 128x64 LCD's.
/That's funny, i also got that display last year through a group order!
Count me in, I'll definately have one.
Just what I need for my next mod.
great feedback so far.!
Count me in
whis is the EL one cheaper then the LED one cause the EL one looks alot clearer
and if it is cleare id rather have one of them
would we need any other bits to connect it to the PC?
i presume it comes with the controller
also what software can we use with it?
i would be in but im guessing that this is only for uk people right not an aussie like me
Right i have an idea that might allow us to get these for even cheaper.. i will let you know whats happening when i'm home from college.
im in.. they look good at a good price.. *awaits arien's idea *
We got about 10 people intrested so far and yes it's uk only and maybe europe orders depends on shipping to those countries after we order.
We've only just started this so i am not sure about paying methods any suggestions are all helpful.
To get the lcd working you will need estimated list :-
Soldering iron (and some experience and patience)
A Db-25 connector or maybe serial connector
A Molex socket male.
A switch and a pot which i think are optional.
You'ldnt cost you anywhere over £25 for a finished working roduct or even less depends how many people we get!
I'm in! (if it's not too late!)
I can pay via Nochex or sending a cheque...or perhaps a bank transfer if you want.
E-mail me s a m AT s a m h a s t i n g s DOT c o m if you want to talk
Ok, I'll wait and see what Arien is thinking of, if that fails, what payment options are acceptable?
i'm still also waiting for Arien's input he should be back with info. We've both just recently done a deal together so we might also do this deal together if he wants .
When we've got an estimated amount we will be ordering the more the better! i can start to work out the figures for the lcd and postaging and then split it via how many people i'll make a quick guestimate in a second .
i did a guestimation for 11 of those screens i mentioned and including p+p it worked out at £15 per person which is a nice price for what you are getting.
