Hello everybody. I'm Rik, 27 years old from France and.. today I started my Cintuos project.
So it's :
-An intuos3 A3 wide
-A 21.5 inches LG IPS226 ( Yes it's IPS and LED backlight, and also external powerbrick ! Yay!)
-A custom case made of I-don't-know-what-for-the-moment. (I guess plexiglas)
-An ergotron arm.
So tonight I disasembled both screen and intuos3. The LG screen was a bit tricky to dismantle but I finally managed to do it with not too much damages.
I had some troubles making the LED work again but it's just because I repluged the FFC in the wrong way. ( BTW I burned my fingers with that LEDs ... who said that they were not hot
The intuos 3 A3 is pretty big and I'dlike to gain room by changing the place of the expresskeys, Is that possible ?
( especially for the touch strips)
Well, I'll post photos later.
[EDIT] : I just did test the screen over the intuos and ... It works !!! and way better than I imagined... Jitter = ZERO !!! this screen is definitely the perfect screen for a DIY cintiq ! Hooray !
[EDIT2] : Well I broke the LED bar... can't find a good replacement. I just bought a new screen.
Cost so far :
- used Intuos3 A3 : 270€
- brand new LG IPS226V : 179€ ( broken LED )
- brand new LG IPS226V again : 136€
- Longer FFCs for led : 5€
- FFC + PCB for the screen at DIY beamer : 24€
- Plexiglass for the casing : 55€
- Paint for the case : 8€
- 22" screen protection film : 9€
TOTAL = 686€
