On Camera monitor suggestions?

I shoot mainly sports video typically futball, hockey, basketball,

I would like to make the jump to an HD monitor probably around 7". I am using a Canon XA-20.

I would like to stay in the $500 range or below. I have looked at the Ikan VK7i and the Marshall M-CT710. I know Elvid, Delvcam, SmallHD, and number of companies make one.

I am looking for someone with personal experience that has some real life feedback. Anyone use one of these or have a mother suggestion on model?

I use one of these SWIT S-1071C+ 7-inch HDMI LCD Monitor - Location LCD Monitors - Monitoring - SWIT

Might be outside your price range though you'll do better in the US than here on the exchange rate.

Got peaking, focus assist, which very useful. I use with my Lumix GH4s , Sony EX3 and Canon XlH1.

Will take a number of different camcorder batteries via interchangeable plates.
