Pixel Qi Netbook Display Now Available for DIY Geeks
July 1st, 2010
I have a notebook sitting around that waited until about a week after its warranty ran out for the display to stop working. It runs and all, but no video. Too bad for me that the thing is larger than the new Pixel Qi DIY display that you can now purchase.
This display is perfect for users who are outside with their netbooks a lot and are sick of straining to try to ready the screen in direct light. The screen is 10.1-inches and will fit most netbooks according to the manufacturer.
If you are interested, in the Pixel Qi replacement screen, it sells for $275 (USD), which isn’t cheap. However, it’s easy to read in direct sunlight and promises to use 80% less power when in reflective mode than normal screens extending battery life.
