See my build log for pics and such...

http://forum.bongofish.co.uk/index.php?topic=15.0

Quite a nice little monitor. Trickiest part was finding out that you have to pry open the case with a sharp object around the edges. From there, it was just a matter of unscrewing and unplugging everything, and then stripping the metal off actual LCD panel:

- Unscrew the screws on the side of the LCD
- Peel off all that clear plastic sticking down the two boards attached to the LCD
- Find the little 'tabs' along the edge of the frame - there are a few. Just bend them outwards
- Remove the tiny little black screws around the edge
- Then pry off the metal backing with something sharp

The flat ribbon cables (FFCs) had me stumped for quite a while. I found out you have to flick the little black section upwards. It's just like a switch that clamps the cable in place.

Aaaaand that's about it

strip here-  http://www.bongofish.co.uk/Wacom/wacom_pt5.html

Couple of clips hidden in holes in the bottom of the case.
Needs a screwdriver round the edge to crack the case open.

Most of the rest is various size screwdrivers. 

The screen has lil' metal tabs that need bending back,

more details in the log.

When shopping for a monitor it may be helful to note if the power input is a standard computer power cable into the back of the monitor or whether it's a round adapter socket in the back.  So far in my build the powerblock that resides in the monitor is causing me some unexpected trouble that may have been alleviated with a monitor that has the power transformer on the cord rather than in the monitor itself.  Just a thought.  Wish I knew then what I know now....

I have to dissent, Milord! Grin

Monitors with internal power supplies are not a NOGO by definition. You will just have some more work to do on them. Monitors with a dedicated transformator will work, too. You will just have to move the transformator into a little box and build in some extension. Monitors with integrated transformators (i.e. built onto a shared platine) will force you to either physically part the platine (most time no good idea) or dismount the transformator from the platine (often possible, but seldom worth it).

Ha sirrah,  This is true, but it starts to hit the "more trouble than it's worth" limit,  forsooth. Grin

I'll have a think about how to arrange all this information.  I'd like a thread for monitors that we've have sucessful results from, which is a (ahem) limited list so far.

Also there are other things worth looking at as well as power supply. Lots of LCDs have a limited colour range (6 bit rather than 8 bit),  others have plastic backing to the backlight instead of metal, which would make the build easier, some have other issues associated with them.  For example the SGI 1600 monitor in that list for instance.  It's a lovely piece of kit, but needs specialist cards and converters to run it, which are scarce and expensive. Good res and colour though, but would leav a lot of tablet or monitor left over..We just dont have that info yet.

After a bit of research it seems like the DELL 2100FP has an external powersupply.
Now I just have to find one to buy.
