5 inch 800x480 hdmi lcd touch screen free sample

I"ve been looking around for a small HDMI LCD screen to use as a seconday screen with Windows and it took a few months of research on and off before deciding on the Elecrow 5" HDMI monitor. For the most part, it took me a while because a lot of reviews here and on other sites were primarily about use and config with Raspberry Pi.

Thanks to reviewer Alan who gave a good review with plenty of photos that convinced me to go for it. Not sure if it"s just how Amazon stores user review videos but the video review was a bit pixelated so it was hard to appreciate the clarity of the screen but it seemed to be what I was looking for.

Having used it for a few months now I still can"t believe how clear and sharp the screen is! There are sadly no controls for brightness, colour, saturation or contrast but everything displayed looks very nice and accurate.

Usually when you see the resolution 800x480 you think how bad that looks when your PC doesn"t have the right drivers installed and it looks blocky. I know it"s all relative and about DPI but once I had it all connected and tested it was sharp and clear, almost HD. I wish I had bought one sooner as it is exactly what I was looking for having tried a Lilliput monitor.

As I"m using this with Windows, I"ve not needed to look through the included driver utility disc and not tried the resistive touchscreen so I can"t comment on those. Windows just detects it as a second display and lets me extend my desktop. No drivers needed. The box contains the LCD screen, a HDMI bridge connector that neatly connects the HDMI socket on the top of the screen to the HDMI socket on the Raspberry Pi when mounted together. Standoffs for mounting are also supplied plus a plastic stylus.

+ It shows the video feed straightaway without any fancy splash screens or slow initialisation pauses. This was one of the annoyances with Lilliput monitor was a slow bright blue screen on power on before it would think about showing the feed. I know it"s only a few seconds but I specifically wanted instant feed on power on for future uses.

+ Runs off a single micro USB (socket also at the top next to HDMI socket) connected to PC USB so no additional external power adapters or sockets needed. It powers down whenever my PC is scheduled to power down so no lingering standby. Some motherboard USB ports do still continue to supply power for charging devices so your experience may differ.

+ I was hoping for an on/off switch but no it only has a backlight switch which I wasn"t sure about to begin with but I"ve since found it very useful and better. I was thinking about buying a micro USB cable designed for Raspberry Pi with an inline power switch built in but for now the brightness switch is fine. As a blessing in disguise, it prevents Windows/DirectShow from blinking all screens when it realises a monitor has been disconnected, that blink would often cause the video on my TV app to freeze. Turning off backlight doesn"t cause DirectShow to have a fit.

- The only negative I can think of is the availability or lack of screen cases with cutouts to suit the position of the HDMI and USB sockets on this. The Elecrow has its HDMI and USB socket at the top edge of screen and nearly all cases I have looked at are designed for screens with HDMI and USB on the right edge. I"ve had to import one from China that had the cutouts for this screen. Took about 2 weeks to arrive. Wish I"d have ordered two cases at the same time to avoid the wait as I"m impressed with the clarity of Elecrow I hope to buy another one in near future.

! Just one more thing Columbo! I had originally wanted to buy Revision B of this screen with capacitive touch screen because it has OSD menu buttons. I can"t find any manuals but I"m hoping that OSD buttons allows settings for brightness as that was my other preferred criteria. Having said that, I think it would be even more impossible to find suitable case due to the positions of sockets and extra menu buttons on Revision B screen. Maybe Elecrow could provide some insight on available cases?

I recently found a discount code through SlickDeals for $10 off the Elecrow 5" HDMI Touchscreen display for the Raspberry Pi. Since the Raspberry Pi was introduced, I"ve wanted to try out one of these mini screens (touchscreen or no), but they"ve always been prohibitively expensive (usually $60+).

This screen hit the right price (even regular price is $40, which is near my "okay for experimentation" range), and I picked it up, not knowing what to expect. I"ve had mixed experiences with Pi accessories from Amazon, and had never tried a product from Elecrow.

This review will walk through my experience connecting the Pi, getting the screen working correctly, getting the _touch_screen working correctly, and then how the whole system works with a Raspberry Pi 3. (See my separate Raspberry Pi 3 model B review).

The display is pretty solid, and comes well packed in styrofoam with four standoffs for mounting, a cheap plastic stylus, and a male-to-male HDMI daughter-card. Getting the Pi onto the board is easy enough; I used one standoff through one of the Pi"s mounting holes (on the side with the HDMI plug), then seated the Pi directly on top of the GPIO slot on the display board, so so the HDMI ports would line up perfectly on the other side.

The Elecrow officially supports the Raspberry Pi 3 model B, but I tested it with a 2 model B as well. I didn"t try it with a B+, but the hardware layout should work, so at least the HDMI display would work correctly (not sure about the touchscreen controls). The way the hardware is laid out, you seat the Raspberry Pi directly onto a GPIO socket (it takes up the first 13 sets of GPIO pins—pins 1-26), and then there"s an included HDMI male-to-male daughtercard that slots in nicely to connect the HDMI output of the Pi to the HDMI input on the display.

There"s an extra OTG USB plug on the display if you want to give it a separate power source, but if you plug it straight into the Pi"s GPIO, it will leech off the 5V connection. As long as you have a good 2A power supply for your Pi, though, you shouldn"t have to worry about supplying independent power to the display. In my usage, I only saw the overvolt indicator every now and then (just like I do in normal usage of the Pi 3, since it uses a bit more power than a 2!).

When I first booted the Pi attached to the display, there was a large white area on the right, and only the left portion of the screen was being used by the Pi (it was only using 640x480 of the 800x480 display). To fix this, you have to set a few display options in the configuration file the Raspberry Pi reads during startup to switch certain hardware settings.

Note: If the Pi boots up to a funny-looking screen and you can"t see anything, you can either reformat the microSD card, or pull it, edit the /boot/config.txt file from another computer to fix it, and put it back in the Pi.

Besides being a 800x480 HDMI display, the Elecrow also has a touchscreen overlay that allows simple one-point resistive touch detection on the screen. Note that at best, resistive touch is not nearly as responsive and intuitive as capacitive touch detection, which you"re likely used to on any recent smartphone or tablet screen. But something is better than nothing, when it comes to building simple UIs for "Internet of Things" devices or other fun things.

I tried to find some kind of downloadable driver for the XPT2046 touch controller, but didn"t find a lot of helpful information. Elecrow"s Wiki has some helpful information, a link to a setup PDF, a link to some configuration examples... but some of this seemed to be formatted incorrectly (likely due to bad copy/pasting or PDF formatting), so ignore that info and use this process instead (all commands run from the Terminal app):

These commands first install the touchscreen calibration utility, then configure the Pi to use the correct GPIO settings so touches can be interpreted as mouse moves/clicks by the Pi.

After you make those changes, reboot the Pi via the UI or in the Terminal with sudo reboot. Once it reboots, you need to calibrate the touchscreen. To do that, go to Menu > Preferences > Calibrate Touchscreen (see image below):

Once calibrated, the accuracy is pretty good, using either the included stylus or your fingernail. Note that the default Raspberry Pi UI is totally unoptimized for small (or even large) touchscreen use. You should probably get to work building your own touchscreen UI now :)

For ~$30 ($40 without discount), I wasn"t expecting a mind-blowing retina display with excellent glare-reducing coatings and contrast. But I do expect no dead pixels, and at least a crisp, vibrant picture when looking straight on. This screen is "good enough" in that regard, though viewing angles aren"t too great; side to side is okay, but looking down from above or up from below results in a bit of a washed out picture. Also, there is no antireflective coating on the screen, so wherever you use it, you need to be aware of nearby light sources.

So, to summarize the review: this is everything I expected out of a sub-$50 display. It"s nothing like a high-end smartphone display with capacitive touch, so if that"s what you"re expecting, you"ll have to look elsewhere. But if you just want a small display that mounts to the Pi easily and is more affordable than the Raspberry Pi Foundation"s own 7" touchscreen, this is a great buy!
