need a little monitor for my raspberry-pi NAS- server

Thu Jun 21, 2018 3:13 pm

hello dear all,


i am pretty new in all raspi-things. i want to create a NAS based on Raspi.
I think it is pretty useful to run a little monitor.

which one do you suggest!? Which one does make sense?!

Love to hear from you

There is the RPF 7" touchscreen that connects to a Pi through the built in DSI connector.

In the interest of being a cheapskate, are you sure you can't accomplish what you want with VNC remote desktop or SSH via PuttY?

Or through a web interface. My (non-Pi) NAS box runs headless and is controlled by a web page on the local network.

I also have a few other headless servers, like my Creeper-Pie Minecraft SMP server running on a Pi3B and controlled using SSH.

I even have spare monitors laying around, but I don't need 'em, so I don't use them.
My mind is like a browser. 27 tabs are open, 9 aren't responding,
lots of pop-ups...and where is that annoying music coming from?
