Hey All I purchased the Kit to make the pi Grrl Zero and I have it all put to gather and powered up but its making me dizzy looking at it as the viewing angles when i look straight at it I can see its brighter with one eye then with the other eye IE i close one eye and look and then close the other eye and look and im getting 2 different image brightness is there a way to adjust this or did i do something wrong?

There's no way to adjust the viewing angles. It's a physical property of the display. Can't you just hold it at a different angle?

I have been trying to hold it at a different angle but to get a good viewing angle I have to hold it way to one side which is really awkward to try and play like that and honestly is kinda of a bummer when I go to show my friends that you have to hold it way to the side to be able to view the games.

The display has a viewing angle, you can try holding it at an angle or lighting it from above but all the screens are like this. it does look OK head on, just not as colorful, just a tradeoff with the small screen!

I just built a PiGrrl Zero with this display and it's quite disappointing to complete all that work and then realize the display is so terrible, you won't even want to show it to your friends. Even if I hold it at an angle, the difference in dark colors perceived between my left and right eyes make my brain hurt. Seriously, try holding it at any angle then close one eye and then look through the other eye. The difference in color is crazy. No wonder my brain wants to hurt trying to make sense of it. It really is so bad that I think it's the kind of thing that should be mentioned as a disclaimer on the product page and on the instructions for anything involving a TFT.

Why can't we have better small displays for our RasPis? Please! :) I would happily pay 3x the price of the TFTs for something that is good.

Same thing here...weird 'shift' when trying to use the screen. Have to hold my Pigrrl at a slightly tilted angle to the left or right to see anything well enough to be productive.
