Hi,

so I have a 12x18 wacom tablet.. Does anyone know of a 21 inch monitor with external power supply?
It's quite hard to get that info from the sellers. Most data on monitors doesn't include if it's internal or external.

I split this post off.  It wasn't really in a good thread for it.

Any ideas anyone?

I found ebay helpful for researching internal/external of various models

-they may mention a "brick" or 12v power supply which indicates external

-they may show a close up of the model number plate which usually tells the input voltage of the monitor.  110v means internal, 12 v means external

-they may show a back view of the monitor which will show the video and power connection.  a small round connector means an external supply connects; a regular 110v three prong means internal.  Or if the power cable is permanently attached that also suggests internal.

Havn't seen any screen larger than 19" using an external power supply. Mostly because the larger size of the screen & housing already have enough room to house the power supply. Less external attachement -> less housing -> less cost.

soooo... does that make a 12 x 14 tablets screen size 19"?  for me, numbers are a gateway to the imagination. that is, when someone starts in on math I think about absolutely anything else.

thanks.

I doubt it, I would just say get a 12x18 or a 12x19 and use the 19", but if you are going to go with a 12x18 or bigger, might as well get a 21 inch+

I've found a couple 20" that use externals. (One of the Dell UltraSharps has one, I think. And I believe BenQ make one, too.) Still looking to see if there are any good 21" candidates. I'm also trying to see which monitors might have a psu module like Tanassi's. Kinda hard to find pics from inside

Hi All,

Just reviving this thread somewhat, hopefully someone will have some info to help me out!

This is something I'm looking for right now. I just purchased/won an A3 Wacom (12x18) and while I do have a couple of nice Samsung 21" 4:3 monitors they are hung on the wall and I don't particularly want to remove them and they also have internal power supplies.

Is there any more up-to-date information on 21" monitors which have external PSUs which don't cost an arm and a leg?

Cheers,

L.

Now I'm sure there's a 21" somewhere in the build logs but I can't remember where.   Came out with no jitter too, but didn't make it into the "sucessful builds " board yet for some reason. Perhaps it didn't get finished.

I can only suggest searching for a while.

Hi,

Thanks for the reply Drew. I was looking at some Dell 2001FP monitors on eBay which have a nice 1600x1200 resolution (yummy) and external power supplies. However I felt somewhat bad about losing 2" on the width of the tablet. Also some digging around and I found that my soon to arrive Wacom Intuos A3 Gd-1218-R has an active area of just over 18"x12" according to Wacom's own documentation (http://www.wacom.com/productsupport/manual/intuosusermanual.pdf). This means some slightly bigger monitors come into the picture, albeit ones with internal PSUs.

I'm also looking at whether it would be relatively easy to build a Faraday cage for the PSU circuitary - foil, chickenwire/thin metal mesh. I notied one thread on here where you (Drew) mentioned that there is no real evidence that internal PSUs cause jitter. I would really like to get a half decent screen (non TN panel) for this so using a decent screen (higher end NEC or ViewSonic would be something I would like). Anyhow has this experience of no proof on this matter changed?

UPDATE: I just measured (again) my Samsung 213T (21.3" 1600x1200 4:3) and while it is perfect on the width, (just under the tablet) the height is about 5mm too much. Now in truth I can spare 2.5mm each side - I don't suspect I could to get that close to the edge anyway with the pen. The question is whether I can find a 21" 4:3 which will spare me this trouble altogether. Of course I'll hold off the actual purchase until I get the tablet in my hand and measure it myself.

Cheers,

L.
