We have been developing some internal projects using the Pi and a wall mounted screen over the last year. After trying many screens we settled on the Official Pi touch screen. We chose it for its form factor and not because it was the best quality screen. In fact of all the screens we tried in the price range, the viewing angle and overall quality (brightness, contrast, etc) of the Pi Screen ranked near the bottom. However the form factor and physical appearance (ease of mounting and nice glass bezel) won out in the end. In fact it looks great in the custom aluminum wall mount we built for it.
However I am hopeful that an update to the screen hardware is on the horizon. It would be nice to see a new version released (possibly with an IPS screen) in the same form factor. The limited viewing angles prevents us from using it in some of our desired use cases (vertically mounted being one of them). I would also love to have a 10" version of the screen as well.
Is anyone aware of any updates to the screen product coming soon? I have not been able to find much.
