The table above lists 15.1" XGA monitors with panels that can be removed for the DIY projector. We cannot provide an across-the-board answer to the question of the perfect display, however. We also must warn you that individual monitors may be tweaked during production without the changes being documented, as they have no impact on the display's functionality. In practice that means that the position of electronic components or cables in particular models could vary, thus complicating the process of using the panel on the overhead projector.
