Having the right display for your Raspberry Pi project can make things work much better.
For example, building a touchscreen media player for your car requires a small monitor, compared to a gaming box project.
There are many displays built to work with the many version of the Pi that will fit most any project that you can think of.
With that in mind here are some of our favorite options.
As always be sure to read the reviews on Amazon, forums, or elsewhere to be sure a unit will work for your project.
