Which small (7-10") displays have been confirmed to work with the Raspberry Pi?

Also, what should I consider when looking to buy one of these displays or trying to integrate one with my Raspberry Pi?

Welcome to raspberrypi Eax. I have suggested an edit which tries to make the question look less like a purchase recommendation question, which have a limited shelf life, to get at the heart of your question. Feel free to accept the edit or use my suggestion to see how you might improve your question yourself. –  Mark Booth Jun 20 '12 at 13:11
    
Hey Mark, thanks a lot :) –  Eax Jun 20 '12 at 15:27
    
Not trying to be patronising, but any screen that has a HDMI or Composite (RCA) connection should work. –  ACarter Jun 20 '12 at 16:27
    
This question is very similar to: raspberrypi.stackexchange.com/questions/936/… –  James Tomasino Sep 28 '12 at 22:33
    
The wiki hardware DB could probably use a screen section and refactoring the adapters into it. elinux.org/RPi_VerifiedPeripherals –  XTL Dec 7 '12 at 8:37

Apart from the usual DVI/HDMI and composite connector monitors it is possible to use the DSI connector to connect to a raw LCD screen.

At the moment there is no confirmed list of monitors I have found but it really depends on which distribution you intend to use, for instance I ran Debian Squeeze and it didn't recognise my BENQ G2222HDL 22" 1080p LED PC monitor correctly and used some messed up resolution like 1900 * 982 or whatever whilst XBMC detected it correctly straight away.

Anyway, there is more information on your screen options here: http://elinux.org/RPi_Screens

I've seen several accounts of people using extremely small LCD screens intended for automobiles via the DSI connector. Like EdChum, I haven't found a full list, though.

I hope you find more information. I'm looking for this as well.

In that video, the screen is connected using the composite not the DSI interface. As far as I understood, DSI seems to be problematic because the GPU code is closed source. –  Philipp Jan 11 '13 at 16:42
