I have the opportunity to purchase a brand new CG275W for $50 but the screen is cracked and I was wondering if anyone on here might have information on the type of panel is used in the CG275W. I have done all kinds of research trying to find a panel number with no results. The closest thing I found specification wise was a panel on ebay made by lg but nothing official that stated that the panel was compatible with the CG275W. Anyone had one of these things apart?

Just in case anyone else has the same question(I couldn't find anything on this panel before I bought the monitor), I bought the monitor and the panel is an LG and the model number is LM270WQ2-SLA1( the SLA1 will show up sometimes as (SL)(A1)). There are 4 revisions of this screen and revisions 1, 3, and 4 use a WLED as opposed to the Cold Cathode Florescent Lamp(CCFL) that is in the LM270WQ2. The first revision can be found on Ebay for $150 currently but revisions 1, 3, and 4 seem to be a little harder to get ahold of. From what I have found in my research thus far the WLED panels are probably not interchangeable with the CCFL as they use different backlights but I have found CCFL to LED conversion ribbons and I know it can be done on laptop screens so at this point it is inconclusive.
I believe that was the same panel that Apple used in their Thunderbolt and NEC in their Spectraview displays a couple of years back.
How many people on here would discount an LG display based on the letters LG?
You are correct. The version in Apple's Thunderbolt is the LM270WQ1(the WLED version) and I believe that NEC has actually used revisions Q1, Q2(CCFL), and Q3 in the Spectraview.
