Can’t I simply take apart a desktop monitor and utilize the display inside?
While it is certainly possible to take apart a desktop monitor and just utilize the Open Frame Monitor inside of it, we do not recommend it. Especially, if the application calls for a long life process.
Desktop screens are constantly going through upgrades and changes both to the internal elements and specifically the external assembly. Each new generation of monitors that are introduced tend to be slightly different from previous models.
