Orange Pi HDMI & USB-C monitor

The monitor ships with an HDMI cable, a US-type power adapter with a USB-C cable, and a stand. The Orange Pi portable monitor mainly stands out because of its low price, as it’s much cheaper than other such monitors. It does so by not including features such as touchscreen and battery, and it’s limited to 262K color instead of the more common 16M color scheme. Note the shipping fee and taxes like (VAT) are not included so depending on where you live the total price may end up close to $100.

It can be perfect for use as a console for home servers and for testing SBCs. I’ve been using a tiny portable 848×600 multi-standard 5″ display but it’s barely readable because it presents higher resolutions and boards tend to select a higher resolution which gets scaled down by hardware. This one could work at the resolution it advertises.

The Orange Pi 14-inch display is $65.99 on Amazon, which is normal.[1] It’ll be a bit higher because if you are in the U.S. (like me) shipping is probably “free”. Unfortunately it ships from Shenzhen, which can take a while. And yeah, there’s really no such thing as “free” shipping. One way or another, you still end up paying for it. What about this instead? If you have a bit more space and VESA mount compatibility is important, for around the same price ($69.99 Cyber Monday?, $99.99 list with “free” U.S. 4-5 day shipping) you can get a 22-inch HD… Read more »

Recently I bought similar display (1024×600 7″ IPS touch, 44$, 2$ shipping). I have “home server” on upper shelf near ceiling. Use case is simple: I have monitors, but when I have issues with “server” from time to time I must pull it from there and bring to my desk with PC and monitors. I don’t see myself with 22″ full size monitor + keyboard on ladder near ceiling, but with 7″ it very handy.
And yes, all portabe things cost more than “static” ones.

That’s what I’ve started to use recently when debugging x86 boards on my desk, and yes it’s reasonably convenient. You must resist the temptation to use the laptop keyboard however 😉

I value small screens for exactly the same use cases!

Lots of people are updating small HD TV and moniters, pop along to your secondhand store that gives a warranty or ask for one FREE on Freecycle or a similar site in your country. Help reduce electronic waste. EBay is flooded with warranted secondhand monitors.

Just a few watts, they work over USB. Having seen one in the past, it was not very bright but quite OK.

Bummer, that shipping absolutely kills the deal. Plenty of other options in the $100 ish range this becomes once that is included.

Power, Video and Audio over single (1) USB-C cable possible?

Costs the $115 incl shipping and VAT delivered here. That’s almost double the monitor price 🙁

Funny how the price of the monitor itself changes based on which country you use as destination. For high tax and shipping countries i see $59, and up to ~$73 for other countries without tax or lower shipping fees.
So the price of $59 isn’t valid for all the countries as far as i could see!

I followed the link to AliExpress and the price was €71 plus €34 p&p. So roughly $110. A long way from $59 and more than the cost of a full size monitor bought locally

Here 58 + 31, so round about 90$ then the risk to pay another 30 tax and postal fees on import…
No more interesting unfortunately

It’s around 100 USD with shipping in the US, I think. Yeah you could get a full sized monitor for around that or a little more. The attraction of this thing is that it’s portable, without being too small. Add a powerbank and it turns your pi into a laptop replacement.
