*** This one is sold but I will be listing a very similar one. if your interested in one like this send me a PM ***

This Frankenpad is near perfect externally but the IDTech UXGA LCD is in need of a CCFL lamp replacement. The LCD is bright but the sides of the LCD display are dim. It is still very useable as is.

I have another one of these available for sale and it is nearly identical condition with similiar LCD issues as noted above. I will be listing the second one soon, but feel free to ask me about it.
