Just to say again whats already been said, the HP 1501 15 Inch LCD which comes branded as a few diffrent makes, compaq etc but all with the same 1501 number is an excellent monitor to use.

Now, I have not tried this, but from what I have read, this looks like the perfect lcd for this! (just dont hold me accountable  Tongue )

The Iiyama BX3814UT 

Quote
This display doesn’t boast any extraordinary features, as well. Its specifications are just a little better than those of the Compaq model: 120/100 degrees viewing angles, 30ms response time, 320nit brightness, 300:1 contrast ratio. The viewing angles turned to be rather strange: the manual said you could look at the screen at an angle of 40 degrees from above and 60 degrees – from below. In practice, however, when you looked at the display just a little from below, its upper part got noticeably darker. At the same time, it’s all right when you look at it from a side or from above, and the picture is quite discernable even when your line of view is in parallel to the screen. Subjectively, the eyes were least of all tired when brightness and contrast were set to 40%.

The design of the model is a bit clumsy and bulky, especially that broad bezel. The base has no height-adjustment options; the portrait mode and wall mounting (a useful thing sometimes) are not available, either. Although this model has rather large dimensions, its power unit is external.

The menu is far from perfection. It’s too ascetic, although there are all necessary functions present. The most common settings – brightness, contrast and self-tuning – are accessed with one button, though.

This display also proved a little worse than its specs said: 35ms (28ms pixel light-up time and 7ms pixel fadeout time).

It is 35ms, but from what I have read from here (http://www.denguru.com/2004/11/13/supersize_your_tv_for_/page7.html) it strips very easily and from (http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/other/display/response_3.html) it has an external.  Also has some nice viewing angles except for from the bottom from what I can read.

Whatever, just posting this.

Mabye found a better one?!

http://www.lumenlab.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=987

From there, a CT-529 is a very easy strip.  They say they did it in under 30 minutes.  Also, very good response time 16ms.
External power supply.

This information is not tested or guarenteed, but someone, try it out!

dell fp/mobi/sony sdm-n50, which is the best monitor to put on my wacom. i wz thinking about the sony because i havnt much expiriance with hardware and it looks to be the easiest. are leds better than the foil thing? ive found a fyew 17inch monitor that look like they must be 12/12 inches, but they all look like a pain in the ass to convert and seem to have shity stands for being a tablet.
