WELCOME! The Adafruit HDMI Display Monitor ÜBERGUIDE @ Adafruit Learning System


At the Adafruit store, we’ve added, and keep adding, a ton of great HDMI-compatible displays for your Raspberry Pi or anything else with HDMI/VGA/Composite video output. But, it can be a little overwhelming trying to find the perfect display for your project.

Don’t fret! There’s now an ÜBERGUIDE to Adafruit’s HDMI Displays category.

There’s a lot and we’ll go through each PID with details about what you get with each screen, but here’s some basic guidelines:

  • There’s two essential elements to each display: resolution and size
  • If the size is the same between two displays, say 7″ diagonal – you’ll pay more for higher resolution
  • If the resolution is the same between two displays, say 1280×800 pixels – you’ll tend to pay more for smaller size (since the pixel density increases, which is harder to manufacture)
  • You’ll pay more for more inputs – a VGA/NTSC/PAL/HDMI driver costs more than just an HDMI driver.
  • Some displays can be paired with an HDMI+Audio driver. This lets you have both video and audio over one cable, but adds a little cost.
  • IPS (In-Plane-Switching) looks amazing, and gives the screens a great look and wide viewing angle, but adds some cost.

We’ve tried to find a match that fits every need and budget but will keep on adding more as the demand arises. There’s also an FAQ page for questions that have come up and some more info on how to set up your driver board.

To ze ÜBERGUIDE!
