So, I'm new to this, but it looks like I'll be making a build for a DIY-cintiq based on the Intuos3 12x19.2 as well!
I was planning on getting one of those Yiynova 19" Tablets because they've got a good price-point, but then a 12x19 popped up on ebay like the day I was about to buy a Yiynova. DIY was irresistible when starting with a $200 XL...
So, from what I've read here are the priorities:
1. 21.5" (or 22.2" if you're going with a 10:16, but they're all over priced and untested for Jitter)
2. NO JITTER (might as well off yourself if you can't draw with your tablet.)
3. IPS for viewing angle and better color quality.
SO, I read through some of the build logs, and this one was recent, and particularly appealing:http://forum.bongofish.co.uk/index.php?topic=2446.0
It looks like this user used an AOC 2269 (Alphascan?), buuuuuuuuuuuut, I don't see that available in the US (where I am). I'm trying to figure out what panel is in that, and find other models with the same panel, as the lack of jitter is super appealing. I saw the I2269VW (looks exactly the same!) and send AOC a message to see if it is the same monitor, and also asked about the I2267FW. So waiting to hear back before making a purchase, otherwise I'll probably buy it anyway since there aren't many options, and it's $96 on Directron (apparently a decent company)
Other monitors I'd been considering:
1. Getting an IBM T221, if I KNEW there'd be no jitter, I'd consider breaking the bank on this, but it's so expensive and the risk of breaking the panel is real...
2. Panel# M215H3-LA1, I *THINK* it's the panel used in the Tabletmod.com builds from the e2243Fw, it's only 7mm thick, and it's available as a panel on ebay (as is the controller), but then the 21.5" build I linked to basically says that monitor is horrible awful terrible.
So, I have no idea how to divine the model number on the internal panels, it's been tough for me to even find that info. Having a super convenient list of Panel model numbers, thickness, and Monitors associated with the panels, would be the most useful thing ever. As far as I can tell TFTcentral is useless for that also....
I plan on slimming the build as much as possible and only using a 0.5-2mm sheet of some kind of matte acrylic over the panel so that it's as natural of a working surface as possible, thickness depending on what's realistic.
