Large LCD Monitors

From NUI Group Community Wiki

As cicada noted in this thread, , documentation on large FFC-compliant LCDs is somewhat lacking. If you have had success with a monitor greater than 19" (the max on the LumenLabs list, which is a good guide for this page) please put it on this list below. Just to clarify, a "YES" in the FFC Compliant? column means that its good to go.

It would be extremely nice to link to a page where you show pictures of the take apart process in the notes. If you have a blog or something link to the post.
