This is indeed the best discussion on the net regarding turn my lcd laptop monitor into a desktop monitor. I have been interested in doing this for a long while. Now I think I am closer to it than ever. I had two very old P4 based Alienware gaming laptops, which has LG Philips LCD LP150U1-A2 with 1600x1200 resolution, now how often do you get such high resolution screens for nothing. I contacted the seller regarding this and he said that the controller should work, though he didn't have the exact hardware available to guarantee this. But I think I am going to take the plunge. Its just $37 after all.
