Which kind of Raspberry Pi Screen do you need.

Hello,everyone.
I want to ask a question, what kind of raspberry pi screen are you using, are there any better recommendations!
If you buy a raspberry screen of raspberry pi, what factors would you consider to buy it? For instance,what function, how much the price can accept? And when you buy them on E-commerce platform,what content of discription do you want to see,Looking forward to your reply.

Thank you so much.

I have a recommendation if you need a portable one ;)

Otherwise any HDMI or DVI monitor will do. I think CPC usually has some good deals if you want a full-sized one.

Anything with HDMi input like:

I have advised people who need small screens to venture to: http://www.cjemicros.co.uk/micros/price ... #VAR-35LCD
Pi Forum Search and Google yields answers to many questions

Any HDMI monitor should work.
If not HDMI then DVI.
Composite will work, but won't be a great resolution or sharpness, so best to go HDMI or DVI.

VGA doesn't work directly without an adaptor so best to avoid as prices are so similar now.

Maybe look at HDMI TVs as well as monitors.
Most budget monitors I have seen have DVI while most budget TVs have HDMI.
You might even get a Freeview tuner thrown in for good measure (if in the UK)
