FPV monitor

Hello,
I'm having some troubles in choosing right FPV monitor. Currently looking at these:
1) http://www.dx.com/p/pl8006-portable-...7-870mhz-55245
2 http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...dProduct=28907
3) http://www.foxtechfpv.com/foxtech-m7...tor-p-575.html

What do you think about these monitors? Have someone have one of them? Could someone direct me to a right choice?
Here is what I'm going to use it with :
Camera http://www.securitycamera2000.com/pr...a-For-FPV.html
VTx/VRx http://www.surveilzone.com/8ch-video...eceiver-ws1119

Tips are welcome!

600tvl Sony Super Had II CCD camera selling at SurveilZone (CC1333)is only US$29, you should grab one there. And I also recommend the 25X25mm mini version of the 600tvl sony super had ii ccd camera HS1171
Here is the video of comparison: PZ0420 vs CC1333

Thanks for your advice!

But the main question is still about monitor. Can someone help me to choose the better one?

Stay away from the first link.

Having gone the cheep route I will say stick with the foxtech or one of RMRC offerings. Unless you want the built in 5.8 in the foxtech you linked get the one with the built in DVR for about twice the price. Kills two birds with one stone and the a DVR will save your bacon. Trust me.

I have a question about LCD's.. I have access to LED backlit LCD panels, and was wondering if someone knew where I could find a board that would take NTSC input, and output to the digital signal the LCD needs.. I'm referring to the 15.6" and 17.3" FHD panels, here... I can also get HD+ and some in smaller sizes, but want to build a ground station with a large panel..

I would imagine that the car customizing industry has access to these..

Wow, to ship that monitor from foxtech to my country cost 30$. It's way to much.

I dont want to spend extra money on getting monitor with 5.8ghz, because will be using 1.3ghz fpv setup. (at least for now)

And now for thouse, who have or know something about monitor, which HK sells. Can someone say something about them?

Also what is better 8inc or 7inc for FPV use?

HK 777 monitor

I have the Fieldview 7" monitor and it is good for my use, light FPV. I am using it as an fpv groundstation with a Boscam HD19 camera, 200mw vtx and rx.

I dont have anything to compare it to so it is working fine for me. The advrts say bright even in sunlight but I still made a full coroplast shield to ensure I get a good visible picture.

It runs off a 7.2 v 2 cell 1500 ma pack along with the Boscam vrx and easily get 2 10 minute flights without setting off the low voltage alarm.

One other mod was to add a lenticular magnifier about 3" away from the screen to enlarge the picture and it works well.

Unless you can find something cheaper, I recommend it.

I had a few of these. No issues. Only thing is the blue screen but that's not an issue for me.

If you are new to FPV I would think a lot before buying a screen with built in VRX.

I've got the same, run through a DVR first and the blue screen is not a problem.
