I'm looking for a basic lcd monitor with external case dimensions around 4.5" square. Smaller is okay, but I don't have space to go much bigger.
One component video input is plenty, and I don't need or want speakers.    
Almost everything I've found is 100+, and I can find ~7 inch or bigger screens for less than that.
There has to small, basic, inexpensive lcd out there somewhere.
Any ideas?
Thanks!

Something like this is just about perfect. However I'm leery about the lack of information available on it (external dimensions, wiring schematic...), and $100 plus shipping from the UK.
Does anyone know of any similar screens with a little more information and a little less expensive?
Thanks!

accelvision has monitors from 21" down to 1.25".  you can get them incased from 5" to 21" or raw from 1.25" to 7". not sure on the price but they have pretty good picture quality.

Ouch, the cheapest 4" screen retails for $260. That doesn't bode very well for the other screen I found.
I found a reasonable amount of information on this screen, but what are the 5v, color, brightness, and contrast OUTPUTS for?
BTW-Thanks to the mod who fixed my topic title. I didn't realize the " wouldn't show up, and of course I couldn't fix it myself.
Thanks for the suggestion

Well I've changed my mind yet again and am now considering a rear view mirror lcd. My biggest priority is a fairly low profile stock look. Almost all of the mirrors I've found are at least a foot across and four inches tall, and I think they would look quite out of place.
This one seems just about perfect, but I can't find dimensions or very much other information about it. That site's also the only vendor I can find, and $260 shipped is a little steep for an unknown.
I'm looking for:
-As close to the ~3x9 inch mirror I have now
-4 to 6 inch screen
-Screen off to the side, preferably left (driver's)
Less importantly:
-One composite video input is plenty
-Clip on is fine, I'll be fabricating my own mount regardless
-Don't need or want speakers (Why would you want sound out of your mirror?)
Other examples of what I'm looking for are:
SAVV LBM-X5000
Power Acoustik PTM-450C
SAVV LBMS-5200
Any suggestions?
Thanks!
