Is the LCD worth getting?
>>
>>4307292
As a collectors item? Sure, it's pretty cool.
As a usable practical tool? No, just emulate on your phone and get a Bluetooth controller.
>>
>>4307292
Lcds have come along way since 1999 you might be disappointed in the screen quality
>>
>>4307292
>worth getting?
>what did they mean by this?
Of course it's worth getting. They only cost $100 on eBay and everyone on /vr/ is mature and gainfully employed in a well paying job with disposable income and needn't think twice about blowing that on gadget they'll hardly use.


>>4307459
The quality is top notch for the time and still holds it's own against cheap modern screens.
>>
>>4307292
It's a SONY (tm)
>>
>>4308120
with the PLACE STOP

>>4307292
This screen is pretty horrible picture quality wise. Its like the cheapest portable DVD player of its era.
>>
>>4309484
At least it's an rgb lcd.
>>
>>4307292
ps1 LCD is so comfy

I rather have this masterpiece.
>>
>>4311016
Does it come in 1.5" widescreen or am I forced to use the plebby 1"?
>>
>>4311030
i wouldn't know, i can't actually find the actual dimensions of the screen online.
>>
>>4311030
It's 3.5 inches wide

>>4311046
Never seen the actual dimensions online either
>>
>>4307292
Only if you have the ps one model that hooks up to it. It's kind of a nifty thing to have. Mine is still working and in mint condition!
>>
>>4307292
I play n64 games on it. Smaller is better when it comes to those imo.
>>
its amazing. its honestly better than my PVM
>>
>>4307292
Works ok in a pinch, I've used it when I went to my Grandparents last Christmas when we just put our dogs down and I wanted to play FFT. You look like a fucking hipster with one though, and you're probably better off wtih an emulator on a lappytappy.
>>
>>4307292
It was awesome back when PSP's reliably emulating PS1 games weren't a thing. I spent many a car trip with this burning my lap. Loved it.
>>
>>4307292
kinda neat but not worth it unless you can't have a crt for some reason
>>
>>4312732
i'm far from a crtfag, but it amazes me someone can say a ghosty 2002 tft could be better. is it a monochrome pvm with a crowbar smashed through it?
>>
>>4313103
Because I don't know where to get a PVM
>>
>>4313103
For yoy
>>
It's pretty decent quality, though it kind of strains the eyes after a while of playing. Not sure why.

It's definitely a pretty fun novelty, though. I use it when I'm too lazy to hook my PS1 up to a TV.
>>
It's a shit quality LCD that was only useful for stuffing into plastic enclosures for portable console mods. Even that community has since moved on to better quality LCD panels.
>>
>>4314548
That's why you mod it and put in a better one!

The Sony LCD screen is only cool if you have the PSOne to attach it.
>>
>>4314548
>i never used one
There might an a filter for your emulator that simulates it
>>
>>4315402
Get your damn pills.
>>
>>4311016
Where.
>>
>>4307346
>emulate on your phone and get a Bluetooth controller.
literal, actual peasant
>>
>>4313103
simple. Because I can play my Playstation with the tv sitting on my chest and my controller down by my balls where it vibrates. I can take it with me to the hotel or just stay home in bed. Besides Ape Escape just looks better on the LCD than on a PVM

wait u can mod it

Hahahah, Jesus that is small
>>
Even I remember being unimpressed by it when it was first in stores
>>
>>4319218
Why?
>>
>>4307292
Use a laptop and emulation.
>>
>>4321408
And some friendly fire and I'll handle it.

Please eleborate, cunt.

ITT people never even saw this baby in action.
I'll tell you all something, I got one for cheap and it looks amazing. Now, the small size and fact that I have to hold the PS1 make it inconvenient in a world where I have a PVM and switchboxes, but the image quality of the screen is superb. The speakers shocked me too, although headphones is the way to play, because they're loud and clear but not tinny. There's almost no ghosting, the graphics look sharp, and the colors are vibrant, not at all washed out like a GBA SP.
Basically, don't spend tons of money for it but don't pretend it's worthless like the ones MadCatz had out for sixth gen consoles.
>>
>>4322625
I don't have to elaborate shit.
>>
>>4307292
It depends on you
Do you have the PS One model?
Don't expect HD. It's old technology.
Are you a collector?
>>
>>4323236
what do you mean hd i wasn't expecting hd
>>
>>4323546
High Definition

Yeah, get it if you’re a complete retard. Certainly over the PVM meme.

fuc u bic

>>4326134
Huh.
>>
>>4307292
Only if you tear it apart and use it in a hobby project or something. The butthurt over these things is real and would be much more satisfying than the actual intended use of it.
>>
>>4326134
Dum, hello?

>>4326443
lik a sumbooodeee

Love that dude

I'm surprised nobody has taken screenshots of the LCD screen to justify why it's bad.
>>
>>4314548
But how bad?

Here I actually own one and took this pic after getting it. I made this post >>4322645
People ITT are retards who hate because they don't have it.
>>
>>4331367
looks really good
THANKS ANON
>>
>>4331369
Yeah and I'll just qualify the photo being not the best by saying that I took it with my phone and don't know how to photograph screens particularly well. In person that washout you see on the bottom of the screen wasn't there, I may have had to jack the brightness way up to get a semi clear photo though I don't recall.
Anyway, it's a great little device to have on a desktop somewhere, the refresh rate is very high and it shows RGB video so the games look great.
>>
>>4331376
and people were saying it was bad my ass
>>
>>4331369
thanks
>>
>>4307292
The best thing about this screen is that if you have it all you need to do is plug in the power cord and you can play. There's no messing with cables or inputs or trying to find a good spot in front of the tv. To me it's almost as convenient as a portable or a Nintendo Switch. I'm glad I found one in a thrift shop dirt cheap.
>>
>>4307292
It's great for DIY mods of other things.
They are cheap and easy to mod.

Don't know about using it on a real PS though. Looks shit.
>>
>>4332968
So ruff
>>
Can you hook up other systems to this screen?
>>
>>4332968
>bastardizing it by not using it with the intended console
>>
>>4307531
stop posting, retard.
lurk more, retard.
>>
>>4333134
You can input any composite signal you like via a 3.5mm jack.

RGB-wise you'd need to roll your own custom cable terminating in a PlayStation multi-av socket. It's certainly doable but not really worth it imo.
>>
>>4333898
>terminating
why

Because otherwise how are you going to connect the cable to the input on the screen?

Sheesh.

The LCD screen for the ps1 is fine. It looks better on the tiny LCD screen opposed to a flat screen obviously. It's small but the picture on mine is damn good
