Somebody over on the bbs has asked if these would be any good for a home build , the price seems pretty fair.

That looks really interesting - better resolution than a VF-2C and a better package with more/easier mounting options
Might get one just to see!!!

How would you test the claimed resolution? Would it just be a matter of looking through and making an informed decision?

Paul,
I'm not sure, but I have a VF-2C and an 800x600 OLED here for direct comparison, so barring anything more scientific, if the new display looks like it's somewhere between the VF-"C and the OLED then it's probably close to what's claimed.
It's actually a 640x480 display but in a wide screen (16:9) format which could be quite good with E700 cameras since they are closer to 16:9 than 640x480 which is 4:3

Cheers

Fingers crossed. Hopefully, it's not one of those 320x240 displays which have been around for a while now.

It is mentioned from 3,7-5V and 120ma of consumption.... So state of fully charged quality 3000mah 18650 is 4.2V which means that even if it cuts of at 3,7V as stated(this is good thing cause it has auto protection of unprotected 18650 cell) it should run roughly around 10 hours before it shuts off...

This setup really has potential... But lets assume that this display could "eat" even 0.5A of current(more than double of stated) it would still run for 3 hours without any problem to inevitably cutoff at 3,7V
