I have two screen cases that support the official screen dimensions, and this doesn't work in either of them.
There are zero screw holes or tabs on the screen. What case or frame are people putting this screen in? I went to the vendor's own site and am not seeing a solution.
Wait, WHUT? THIS IS NOT THE OFFICIAL 7" TOUCH SCREEN?!
I will demand a refund if that is the case. RoPieee only supports that. And I got this to be a RoPieee device.
I was thinking about getting 2 of these drops, but seeing the feedback it seems it has poor QC and the kit has issues with a case that is to small for the included heatsinks. MD, please get on top of this as I am less exciter about MD after seeing this and some other items like that. I like my MD headphones.
Capacitive touchscreen?
These kits don’t work. i Was in the last drop and the micro sd card was defective. Don’t waste your money.

This happened to me too. Luckily sd cards are cheap. I think I can still get it working with a new one? Did you ever get yours working?
Why not just buy a table for all there trouble this looks to be putting this thing together
Roman1
That's the point to build it yourself in a way you want it to work...

This is for techs, not for everybody. You might not want to tie up a tablet everywhere you can use a processor. The arduino or Raspberry PI are a lot cheaper than a tablet, some as low as $5.
I did a review for this Kit My first experience with Pi http://handymangeek.blogspot.ca/2017/09/living-pi-life-raspberry-pi-startup.html

Thanks for the write up. The link to the LCD input board PDF was especially helpful.
Anyone know a good site that offers a good 7inch LCD touchscreen?
Still reeling from what a ripoff this was: besides the bait and switch lcd screen, both the microSD card and power supply were bad; replaced em for $20+ but everything is working fine now.
Don't request this drop again.

These look like the same faulty power supply that was sold with the Rpi2. iPad power supplies are what I'm using right now. They're expensive, but so far have a fairly high build quality.
They should've included a case like this for both the Pi and screen. http://www.mcmelectronics.com/product/SMARTICASE-SMTNL-/83-17628

Nah, I wouldn't want a case
Wow this really sucks. Totally feel ripped off from massdrop.
I saw 7" R Pi kit. I presume that is a nicely put together kit curated by massdrop and that someone at massdrop must have atleast some knowledge on this to curate it to be worth our attention and offer it as discount.
The touchscreen has tons of parts and wires that barely fit inside the cardboard box it come in once all plugged together. The touchsreen doesn't even include a power supply. The case is nice but when you put all the heatsink on the pi it doesn't fit in case. Looking up the prices for these things on amazon post respect I discovered this massdrop was actually more expensive than amazon.
It's like they threw a bunch of crap in a box and stuck it on here at a marked up price to try and trick people into buying it. I thought massdrop was better.

The SD card I got is also corrupt, you can write to it but you only get garbage out!
svalsson
Initial tests indicate that I have the same issue. Doing a couple more runs to confirm.
Can anyone confirm a frame or a case the screen will fit in? Had a few drinks and thought it was an official screen in the bundle.
i can find a $20-$30 7inch LCD for the pi from china websites easily, just need a forwarder. i got my rp3 + 3.5inch lcd + power adapter for ~$50 in total

Can I get a link for these sites.. I've been looking around for a 7inch LCD touchscreen but everything I find is 100 dollars.
I can totally not read chinese but Google can...sorta.. lol
But thanks for the links.
Why doesn't the screen board come with a damn power supply. I don't just have 5-12v barrel plug power supplies laying around. I don't care as much about the pi's power supply. That is easy enough. I actually do have a bunch of those lying around. Massdrop, unfortunately, is becoming less and less appealing.

I was disappointed in this as well. On sainsmart's site, they don't have it in the kit or for sale by itself. I have one for my electric shaver but the part that plugs into the board is too small. There are so many online but I don't know what size it is. There are not good instructions with this kit.
Finally was able to open my kit. Several hours later and pulling out what left of my hair....finally figured out I had gotten a bad micro SD card and a very poor USB cable. After digging in storage bin for these parts, I have a fully functioning kit. Rant done, just an FYI to others if i missed their posts.
does any one know where to get a screen case that will fit

That is for the RPi official screen, its a pain trying to find one.
A better drop would have been Pi 3 + Official 7" LCD screen + 7" screen case (which would house both the LCD and the Pi 3) for about the same price or just a wee bit more and been only 5 pieces (Pi 3, screen, screen controller board, case, DSI cable).

I clicked, thinking the official kit is what I was going to see. Pass...
Well, I take back what I said earlier. Mine arrived with a cracked screen and I have to return it for a refund (no exchanges because no inventory). Oh well, you win some and you lose some. Not more drops for me that have fragile items.
Absolute regret for me. Don't think I'll order from massdrop again if there isn't any concept of quality control. You are better off buying Pi 3 yourself and the official touch screen.
- Raspberry pi power supply provided isn't enough to power the pi, as it will eventually shut down. - Display board didn't come with it's own power supply. I luckily had one that fit the power supply socket. - The "instructions" included are just a link to a wiki. - Instructions in wiki are bare, and you are left to your own devices for somethings like figuring out how to connect the display to the display board.
Lesson learned. Both massdrop and this supplier are absolute garbage.

Yeah, I signed up for this drop not doing my due dilligence. I thought this was for the Raspberry Pi 7" screen, not some off brand one that won't fit any case.
This is a crap drop, I'm quitting Massdrop because of this crap.
aspeltok
I'm going to have to agree with this. Having to fabricate my own screen case and screen controller case is going to be a pain. I haven't been able to even try the screen out, as I don't have a power supply that will work with it. I had a hell of a time getting raspian to start, turns out the power supply for the Pi3 was the problem (I bought a new one). The only things you get of value in this drop are the Pi3 and I suppose the heat sinks? Definitely not worth it.
Hey, go vote for lexar microsd it could be usseful
UPS is not giving me the tack even if you send de number 4 day ago
Never had such a BAD service, Massdrop makes me lose so much time in my project!!!! Is not such a good price for the bad service!!!! Disappointment!!!!!!
There's a Raspberry Pi 7' touchscreen on Amazon for about $70. What's the point of this drop? I may save $10-$20, but will have to wait a month or so. Is Massdrop being forced to do cruddy drops because of polls, or what?

Yeah, I thought this was the official 7". I feel totally duped.
tbh I've only joined one drop: Arduboy. a day or two later Kickstarter overstock went on sale for the same price and I already got those, limited edition, straight from Arduboy themselves. Only thing keeping me from totally regretting joining the drop is that a mass production model will be better suited to modding since I'm a newb; just in case I kill it, it's not really "special."
Massdrop shipped my product to the wrong place. Same town, but to a home that is empty. A monthly rent home that does not have my raspberry pi. Ups says "delivered and on the porch". Correct number but how did massdrop say Washington Street instead of Edison. 801 N. Washington is NOT N. EDISON and it's gone and whatever.
S-Vortex
It arrived! NOT from UPS like I was told, they gave me the tracking number and I called UPS twice and they said that it was left on the porch. The actual package arrived a half-week later. From a company that I've never heard of. It was exactly what it was supposed to be! Just get it right Massdrop, please
S-Vortex
Just for my own curiosity, what company was it?
how's the raspberry pi 3 handle plex?
harharhops
Not sure about Plex, but I have heard it handles Kodi very well.
The last Pi buy was embarrassingly bad, this one is a pretty sweet deal.
The screen definitely has some limitations, so just make sure to check that it can do what you intend for it to be used for before buying.
Will this be Roon Ready?
Mine just arrive in LA, CA. Ordered in January.
Has anyone else gotten their order? If so where are you located? I bought this for a part of a bday gift and I am trying to see if I am going to get it in time (: thanks
Kaymaisla
just arrived to LA today
Testshoot
Ok thanks!! Hopefully I get it soon too!
i think i got a faulty touchscreen driver board, im not even getting a power light on usb connect. ?
stuartm
try using a different usb power adapter, many have said that the included adapter does not supply enough power.
