The Madtastiq
Monitor = Samsung SyncMaster 17"
Tablet = Wacom A4 GD-0912-U.

Interesting bits =>
Monitor had an internal power supply but Madpsychot split it out into a seperate box very elegantly. Same with the vga board and inverter.    There was a case of jitters that went away when the case was screwed closed  Huh

MadPsychot - he says:
"The jitters still come and go, depending a lot on whether I'm sitting under flourescent lights, a mobile phone is near by etc etc.... but it's works really well if you just use it like a normal pencil and paper."

Rather nice piece of animation created on the finished build on p7

The Dontiq
Monitor = packard bell CT500c  (LG panel.)
Tablet = Wacom UD1212R

Interesting bits=>  (to quote DonShole)
I've had my share of mishaps doing this.  First of all, Nisis tablets are rubbish! - for this project.  I broke a CCFL from the L15CX monitor, replacing it didn't help.  It turned out the lcd pcbs got shorted out after the one ccfl broke.  I replaced it with a packard bell CT500c.  The same monitor except, no speakers, the actual lcd is a lg phillips and, the column driver board causes interference on a ud12x12r IF   it is completely over the tablet sensor.  Shielding stops this.  Strangely I get some minor jittering on my desktop but not on the laptop I was doing all my testing with.  My " rebuild" cost is ct500c £45 incl shipping, ud12x2r £51 including shipping.

The Simtiq
Drew's Original Build
(Most commonly used build too)

Monitor - Dell 1503fp (Rev A00)
Tablet - UD1212R

Notes:
Two revisions of Dell 1503fp.  Both work well with UD1212R.
Rev A00 - Two 40 pin, .5 pitch ffc's needed.  Two CCFL's on lcd (LCD= Samsung)
Rev A01 - One 20 pin, .5 pitch ffc needed. One CCFL case with two bulbs on one side. (LCD= HannStar HSD150MX12)
More Notes:
It seems not all Rev A00 or A01 follow the pattern so just make sure you open yours to find out 100% before ordering FFC's.  (only one case so far)

The tried and trusted combination.
Successful extension of CCLF cables.

Bhrazzes build

Monitor - Samtak  Huh  need to find more details on this one.
Tablet - UD1212

An obscure make of monitor, this model seemed very easy to work with, no hint of jitter.
Problems with drop outs mid screen turned out to be a curved wacom sensor board, fixed with a refreshingly low tech solution involving large bolts.

The Comptiq
Monitor - Compaq Presario screen, still attached to the Compaq Presario m2000
Tablet - LaPazz

A down and dirty DIY tablet PC,  some mentions of connectors/cables for extending laptop LVDS cables
No jitter, but the tablet can't draw straight lines.  Roll Eyes
Outstanding use of cardboard.   Grin

The Nightiq
Monitor - Lg flatron 15"

The pictures must have been posted elsewhere and have gone awol, which is a shame because there was quite a cool case built by Night's dad.

Wei's iTab

Screen - BOE HV150UX1-101 LCD panel and LVDS controller
Tablet - 9x12 Intuos 3
Mac iBook G4

Rather lovely UXGA (1600 x 1200) screen and a Macbook G4, All built into one of the sweetest neatest cases we've ever seen here in the bongofish aquarium. 

Some jitter, almost completely cured by screening, though it still jitters when the ibook gets too hot (which is interesting in itself).    BUT a good screen/tablet combo for a higher resolution 15".

The Frankenstiq

Screen - IIYAMA BX3811U
Tablet - UD 1212

Kerbec29 stars in a tale of gritty persistence overcoming problems and ending up with a very fine build.
A good monitor too. no FFCs, and only one board across the top of the screen. Good use of big rubber feet.   Grin
Some jitter cured by replacing the dying power supply.

goldflakesmalls build
Screen - Samsung Syncmaster 540N 15"
Tablet - Intuos 2

Hooray - another good combination to add to the list.  Nice use of the monitor back to extend the Wacom case, and BOLTS lots of BOLTS.
There's also a really good exploded view sketchup drawing  of how it all goes together - definitely worth a look.
Wallace would be proud.
