Source for graphic display

Looking for LCD graphic display approximately 6 inches by 1.5 inches (150 mm 
by 30 mm). High-resolution not required; I'm apparently limited by my size 
requirements. 

I don't see anything more than square-ish displays on e-bay. 

Suggestions?

Thanks.

You should go to the manufacturers web sites. They may have something closer to what you need. But you are going to have trouble finding a display with this form factor off the shelf. -- Rick

What is wrong with web page designers that makes them use grey for text? Are they really trying to make their pages hard to read? They even use dark grey text against a light grey background. In spite of their best efforts I see modules with 240 &#2013265943; 64 pixel resolution, 127.16 x 33.88 mm viewable area. I hope their modules are easier to read than their web pages. -- Rick

I'm not ragging on you. I am ranting in general. I see this often on web pages. Someone decided it looks nicer to use less contrast on their pages. Fine if you are browsing for beauty. I just want to be able to read the durn things. -- Rick

I agree wholeheartedly. However, there is often a link on the page leading to the author. I would advise using it. I have done so in the past. Might get nothing, or might get some improvement. Cheers

I agree with you 3,000 %. What do these people use for eyes ? Don't they re= alize the stuff they sell is not being bought by 16 year old webdesigners w= ith 20/05 vision, no floaters and absolutely clear lenses ? If I was the ow= ner of the company I would say something and get them to fix it. If the own= er of the company does not do that, draw your own conclusion. Not knowing t= he market is not good. Look how old osme of htese engineers are, some with = even worse eyesight than me and that is saying something. (runs in the fami= ly) There is usually a workaround though just so you know, mark the text. I mea= n drag the mouse across it as if you are going to copy and paste it somewhe= re, just don't hit copy. I have to do this more than I'd like for that exac= t reason. What do these idiots think ?=20 I fact I prefe white text on a black background, like old DOS. At least I c= an read that. Of course now asshole Windows makes it white on blue. Why ?= =20 And another rant, when Windows decided that it was going to be black on whi= te, were they getting kickbacks from monitor manufacturers for wearing out = the cathodes in the CRTs ? I'd bet, we know they are in cahootz with every = other hardware manfacturer out there.=20 Of course now with LCD it is a whole different story, but that is no excuse= for before. Hell, 15 years ago I started to turn down the brightness on my= monitors.=20 Anyway, to actually comment on the OP, I am a bit surprised that Digikey an= d all them have nothing like what he needs.=20
