Hi all. I want to get some suggestions for an inexpensive LCD monitor in the 3 to 6 inch range. It will function as an AC's monitor. Viewability off axis is important.
Any ideas?

I would suggest any cheap lCD that you can find,the stuff you can buy nowadays in any TV-store isnĀ“t bad at all.

When maximum viewability is needed, together with maximum brightness than they are suddeny not cheap anymore.......

I have been using two 4" lcd portable Casio EV-4500B (the B is for Black) and they have worked out great. The tuner is strong (when it is turned off though, you need to reset the channel), it is bright, and very small and weighs next to nothing. DP's and Directors seem to like the Casio much more than my Sony clamshell. I suggest that you also purchase some rechargeable AA batteries (it takes 4). 8 AA's should last throught the day. I purchased mine from Best Buy, along with an extended no fault warranty (after a year no problems though).

P.S. It is great for personal use when I have down time on the set.
P.S.S The Hoodmann H400 fits perfectly for bright light viewing
