I think that the Giano "is" the digitzer behind Huion 15.6" "Cintiq" (The Huion Kamvas GT-156 hd), so any 15,6" [16:9] or 15,4" [16:10] screen should do.

(eventually, check on the Simtiq Planner (https://www.dropbox.com/s/bcyv4w3zvymhgfw/simtiq_planner.html?dl=1), as I am not sure the 15.4 wouldn't end inside the band of "fast shortcuts" placed at the top of the Giano).  

Unfortunately, as far as I know, nobody has tried to use the Giano to date, so there is no ready recipe (I tried once with the Huion H610... it didn't go as well as I hoped,as the LG LP116WH2 that I chose really messed things up (http://forum.bongofish.co.uk/index.php?topic=2214.msg21436#msg21436)).

Try with a good  15.6 16:9 full-HD screen (http://www.panelook.com/modelsearch.php?op=advancedsearch&order=panel_id&inch_low=1540&inch_high=1560&resolution_pixels=8180&display_mode_lc_family=3&lamp_position=Edge&backlight_type=10) (the GT-156 is full-HD, so probably the frequencies in the Giano are already trimmed to "live" with a full-HD)


On a side note, if you already have the Giano tablet, let us know how it goes.

If you still have to buy the tablet, consider the fact that the aforementioned GT-156hd clocks in at about 600 bucks - you can also find 21.5" GT220 on amazon for 500,  but you should look for  a Rev 2 or Rev 3, as the intial model was a bit botched- and it comes with a warranty and a decent support.

The Giano costs about 140  bucks (last time I eyed one), a good screen can set you back a hundred then one may need some ancillaries, so the economic convenience of building on the Huion is questionable (and really depends on how confident you are at modding the LCDs... a couple of burnt screens and you are on par with the cost of the Kamvas )... they do not really gauge one's left eye for their machines.

Personally, I thought about giving a try to the Giano, but I realized that for the cost of the tablet alone I could build another of my Intuos 2 "A3" machines (In fact. I managed to build my last one with little more than 150 Euros) .

And... I just love the Intuos2.
