10 Best Raspberry Pi Touchscreens

By  | 

Raspberry Pi with a touchscreen is used for designing projects that limit the use of external input devices like a keyboard or mouse. They can be used to create systems in which the hardware is perfectly embedded within one device.


10. Eleduino TouchScreen Display ($58.99)

Raspberry Pi Touchscreens

  • 800X480 high-resolution HDMI Touchscreen
  • Better touch response
  • Larger viewing angle
  • Faster response time
  • Supports Raspberry pi Raspbian, Ubuntu, win10 Iot, Driver Free.
  • It can work as a computer monitor just like any other general HDMI screen.
  • Supports win 7, win 8, Win 10, driver free
  • The customized shell makes your pi to be an Integrated Computer.

This touchscreen comes with zero documentation, hence requires technical understanding for operation and as a result, greater headache. The unit also does not come pre-assembled. Good for hobbyists and DIY enthusiasts. Software is easy but the stand is wobbly and unstable.


9. Official Raspberry Pi Foundation TouchScreen LCD Display ($79.99)

Raspberry Pi Touchscreens

The capacitive touch screen measures 7 inches and is able to sense 10 fingers simultaneously. The kit comes with an adapter, ribbon cable, screws and jumpers.

Customer Reviews:

The pixels in width were larger than the length hence causing the objects to appear a little smashed. The resolution was small too. The bezel surrounding the screen was wide in width where otherwise it could have been made as thin as possible. Nothing bad in it. It just looks a bit untidy. The backlight timeout blanks the page until you touch it again.
On the other hand, many customers found the image good and clear with a great touch screen response.



8. OSOYOO LCD Touch screen Kit Raspberry Pi 2 3 Model B ($19.50)

Raspberry Pi Touchscreens

3.5 inches LCD display that comes in a kit and includes a clear transparent cover case. Useable with Raspberry Pi model B (3,2). There is a tutorial page to set up and make the LCD work.

Customer Reviews:

The problem of setting up the work screen prevails with nearly all the Raspberry Pi’s LCDs. Hence they need to be patiently setup with required support from the customer service office if required. The LCD works ‘OK’ after the setup. Small screen with a poor resistive touch with no easy setup. But beats in terms of price. Slow refresh rates with no instructions make it challenging. After upgrading to “Jessie” OS, it worked faster with out of the box touch screen digitizer.

Overall a product that can be used well at a cheap rate if set up properly.



7. Kuman LCD Display with Protective Case ($29.00)

Raspberry Pi Touchscreens

Customer Reviews:

The touch screen works fine and as long as you get/follow instructions from someone it’s fine. (Refer to customer support/user reviews for help). The case comes a little cheap and fragile. Fairly many problems with the case and hardware interface.

The working of the LCD is pretty good.
