What do you think is better 8ms at 400:1 or 12ms at 500:1?
I found an interesting 15" monitor called Viewera 8ms 400:1 with a external power supply. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824138073&ATT=24-138-073&CMP=OTC-pr1c3watch&nm_mc=OTC-pr1c3watch&cm_mmc=OTC-pr1c3watch-_-Monitors+-+LCD+Flat+Panel-_-VIEWERA-_-24138073
Is 400:1 a good enough contrast ratio or would 500:1 be better, or is there not much of a difference?

The more contrast range the better.  For a monitor for drawing on, I'd go with that over refresh speed.

Why buy today what you could build tomorrow?

I actually think the LCD the real Cintiq uses is only 400:1, but that's a totally different animal than your standard LCD. I'm sure they've been manufactured for excellent color accuracy and all of that jazz.

I'd go with the 500:1 if possible.

Tidbit, ran across a 20'' monitor with an external power supply.

 Asus PW201, DVI is the standard hook up on this monitor, contrast is 800:1 and resolution is 1680 x 1050. Don't know the schematics inside of these guys, but I thought it might be worth looking into. It seems to be getting average reviews all around.

Well...I didn't really read  all this stuff in this thread...but does someone know if theres any good LVDS-Controller for the DELL  1701FP ?

I'm not sure were I can get this ...or even how much to pay for it ....

The actual case is that I got an 12x12 inch Wacom, I didnt get a useful 9x12 :/
So if someone wants to swap his 9x12 for my 12x12, I'm here, just write me a mail:)

Are you planning on running the 1701 from a laptop signal?

making progress on my build.  I'm prototyping with a placeholder LCD panel until i can get a higher resolution BOE Hydis 1600x1200 solution.  This LCD panel comes from a Gateway 1520 15".  Panel model Chunghwa #CTAA150xA03.

So I notice laptop lcd screens bought as a single component are £100 new give or take. Do you reckon it would be feasible to fit a power and data and slap it ontop of a wacom?

Also what interferes with the tablet when placing it behind a screen, tablet range being fine.
