Edit by Drewid. -This is a list from a DIY projector site.   The projector guys don't mind whether the power supply ac-dc convertor is internal or an external brick  - it doesn't affect the function of the projector,   BUT a tablet works by electromagnetism, and power supplies generate interference So an internal supply is BAAAD. (It is probably possible to shield it but it's extra hassle.)

External supply good, internal supply bad.

If you are looking at any of these check to see it has an external or internal supply before you buy it.

Lilliput 7" SVGA 2400x480 Widescreen
These things go for about $200 and are great for people who need a smaller projector. The resolution isn't as high as a 15" panel but it's perfectly acceptable for medium sized screens up to 8' diagonal. I'd imagine 6' screen size is optimal for these. There is no FFC issue but there is a small circuit board that must be bent 90 degrees from the panel; doing this requires no skill however, just move it out of the way. Make sure to get the SVGA panel, 2400x480 dots (they call it an XGA panel but it's really XGA compressed). This panel also has both composite and vga inputs (woo!), a remote, and 'fit to screen' options for 4:3 broadcasts. Remember when dealing with many of these smaller panels the resolution is given in dots, not pixels. It's easy to get deceived this way because on the horizontal resolution each dot is actually just one of the RGB colors. If the resolution is 2400x480 dots you would get the actual pixel resolution by dividing the horizontal dot resolution by 3, giving you 800x480 pixels.

  very static sensitive.

  Reports say that not all 1560Ms are compatible.

Mag LT456s
300:1 contrast

Not the fastest panel but it's a 14" which is good. This is not a panel for hardcore gamers but for everyday use it seems to be fine.
  Reports say that not all 14" Mags are compatible.

PDF manual is available on acer website, but is quite huge (77megs)

There seems to be 3 models (W, H and L), but I don't know if it is only related to color of the enclosure or domething changes inside. All three models have exactly same technical details:
16.2M colors
  Reports say some units have FFC issues

Sony SDM-S53H
The "H" designation seems to be important on this one.

  MUST BE THE LTM 1555 "X" MODEL, NOT THE "B" MODEL! The B model has the FFC issue

Samsung LTN1565X /XAA
15" LCD TV
Very easy to take apart.
All of the cables are real wires, only one FFC which is on the LCD panel and should not be a problem. The main cable that connects the LCD to the brain unit might need to be lengthened depending on how you mount the input connections. They are all real wires though and would not be that hard to do.

Proview HD 572
Uses the LG 151 panel.There are ffc's from the panel itself to the 'brain' but you can bend them easily without damage, will post some pictures later.
