Thats a really good price. However some one on youtube did a review on this device and he said the screen was pixel looking. He said it was not very good compared to the LDK.
I have the LDK Vertical and RG300 on hand to compare.Same:
-Both have cheap TN screens, installed with polarization isoclines running horizontally. The panels are well visible from the left, above, and to the right. They exhibit strong characteristic TN gamma shift when viewed from below. The effect is noticeable at only ~3 degrees and becomes very strong by 15 degrees, rendering dark, moody games unplayable at that angle.
-Both have 320x480 RGB-Delta panels with non square pixels. Same style of panel used in the RS-97 etc. The RGB-Delta subpixels create a zig-zag effect on straight vertical or horizontal lines. I don't think any current software actually draws out 320x480 independent pixels, so the effective resolution is 320x240.
- The LDK panel has the same resolution but is slightly smaller, so it ends up at a higher DPI. Perhaps this is the less "pixel looking" that guy was talking about, not going to watch the video.
- The LDK panel seems to have higher brightness, contrast ratio, and color gamut. I don't currently have a setup that can measure this though, so you'll just have to take my word for it.
I haven't really tested time-domain performance, but nothing jumps out at me. I think they're both 60hz vsync with acceptable response time. I'm not picky about those things though, so maybe ask someone else.The LDK is the clear winner, for the above reasons. They both have the same flaws, but LDK is more vibrant.
They really fucked up on the RG300's lcd panel... this thing kinda sucks. It's reasonable for a <=$35 USD device and not acceptable at all at ~$60+. We'll see how the general price trend goes in the months to come. A basic edition at <$35 shipped and a deluxe version with IPS at ~$60 could rescue the device, as far as I'm concerned.
(note: most people don't hate TN screens as bad as I do... maybe it's okay for you.)
Steward's teardown included an IPS screen, but I don't know if it shipped that way (bait and switch!!!) or he put it in after the fact. The screen from his teardown appears to be the same as the panel in the RS-97 2Anniversary IPS edition - LKWY030C02 V2.
Wish I could buy LKWY screens as a westerner...
