Struggling to find a good monitor up to 7" False color

Hey guys,

I am currently struggling to find a new monitor for use with my GH2 and BMPCC. No way to test where I live so I hit a wall which one to take.
I want 5.6" or 7", pretty bright. Peaking and False color is what I demand from it.

I looked into the following:
Lilliput 663 O/P: Finding it new for 320€
Lillipit 664 O/P: Finding it used for 220€, but no tests or comparisons whatsoever to judge quality

Aputure VS 3: Just new 390€

and something else: Small HD DP6 390€ used. Would that be worth it? I know Small HD to be a good brand, so I guess it would excell build quality wise over the Lillputs.

Sadly MustHD and Ikan monitors are hard to come by here in Germany, used and new.
Please share some recommendations!

I have the Lilliput 5dii/o/p.  It has peaking and false color, and it is inexpensive (US$239 on Amazon).

 

Works great with the BMPCC.  With a GH2, evidently the monitor must be set to "underscan" to get the entire frame.

 

In regards to this monitor's cons, the colors aren't the best (nor brightest) I've seen in a field monitor, and the included lens hood is extremely delicate -- don't let anyone open nor close it who is not familiar with how it works.  Also, the included battery died after a couple of charges, and Lilliput customer service here in the USA is not very good.
