TVIEW TRP 1177: First Impressions

My first impression of the TVIEW TRP 1177 is a pretty good one given the price range of this device.

There are no amps or speakers at all in this kit, but you do get stereo RCA-female type connectors on a nice long moulded cable for routing to your favorite sound system at line level.  

It has a well built, nice looking frame/chassis and nice bright 800X600 TFT/TTL display (SHARP BRAND).  I think it is dual back lit using cold cathode ray tubes (one at top and one at bottom).

There is no power supply, but it will accept a standard 12v supply.  Perfect for wiring into a car, boat, or RV, as the power cable has a built on fuse box and choice of bannana type plugs or screw type hooks.

An infrared remote control is included, and the sensor comes on a nice long cable so it can be placed where you want it.  This gives control of brightness, contrast, control board clocking, and a few other adjustments typical of LCD controller boards.  (Seems to be a SHARP brand controller in my particular unit).

Also included is a wired in key-panel with plenty of spare cable to mount it where you want.  The key panel is no frills, and comes stock in a little black snap close box.  There are easy to access solder points if you need to customize this key for custom mounting.

You get two composite video inputs, also on a nice long cable.  AFAIK these accept both NTSC or PAL signals.

 

There is a VGA in cable...quite long:

The VGA part only syncs to 60Mhz signals for me :(  This is my one major con to this unit, as it gets more difficult to find video cards that will easilty go any lower than 70Mhz refresh rates!  In short...you see the Windows boot logo fine...then everything disappears when windows is fully loaded...TVIEW blinks and says, 'not support...check vsync'!  Unless your video card can drop down to 640X480 or 800X600 with 60Mhz refresh rate...you might be out of luck using this as a computer screen!

All in all it seems to be a pretty good value if you're looking for a low cost 11" lcd open frame kit.  Just be aware that the VGA input is a bit limited.

Would I recommend this to a friend or family member? Yes
