Ps1 Screen: $13 At K-mart

Recommended Posts

I picked up a PS1 5" LCD screen at K Mart today for $13 ($14.01 after 7.5% tax). These things have mini AV Input jacks so I hooked up rca to my video card and it works quite well, paired up with the omega drivers, I can display video on BOTH the PS1 screen and my regular monitor at the same time.

 

I plan on taking all the excess fuzz off of it and modding it into my case. AV Input should help make it really easy, and there are a lot of tutorials that can be found specifically for the PS1 display through google :D

 

Now I can have a portable PC 1337er than fps_doug's!!

it's actually a 640x480 screen... with a little modding you can use the VGA input abilities of this screen:

The mod only works on Sony brand PSOne displays. To my knowledge it only works on Sony brand PSOne displays and Thrustmaster PSOne displays (thanks to mpro). Other PSOne displays do not have VGA input, most of them only pass the composite video signal up. You will not be able to get the mod working on these displays.

Watch ebay, there are a lot of opportunists out there and the market is gonna get flooded with these things.

 

I dont have the time or money to pick up a bunch of these and send them all over the place, plus the deal is insane and you'll have a hard time getting these if you dont hurry. But I do believe it is nationwide, if it's not on the floor, ask someone if they have any PS1 screens in stock. Good luck!

 

I got mine at the Kmart in Petaluma California.

here's the thread I learned about it in, there's people that cleared them out of quite a few stores and there are some that bought a few and are willing to sell.
