    Nice PDF, maybe you should keep it as a Markdown file or similar for easier editing.
    Two remakrs:
    – Seems the resolution for LCD-OLinuXino-15.6FHD (both older and newer revisions) is quoted wrongly as 1280×1080 instead of the proper 1920×1080 (as in your product pages in the store)
    – I welcome the new, decreased prices of LIME2 – it now starts at 40EUR (-5 the original price) and has 16GB eMMC version for 53 EUR (original had 4GB NAND for 55EUR!) 🙂

    Oh, and the product page for LCD7-METAL-FRAME suggests all 7 inch screens in the “Related Products” section, even the incompatible ones (the 7RTS and 7CTS). No info on this in the description of the 2 products either (neither in the metal frame pade, nor in the respective LCD screen ones).

    Thanks for this guide.
    Have you got some information about these screens about the eyes comfort / damage ? Before I was using old screen and there wasn’t problems with eyes. I have bought a new laptop one year ago, and for the eyes, it’s very uncomfortable (eyes crying, dry eyes). Best regards
