15 inch TFT panel transformed to something more aesthetic

15 inch TFT panel transformed to something more aesthetic

Its Called TransTFT. 15″ TFT panel transformed to something more aesthetic. If you can’t tolerate the looks of your Flat Panel, heres a nice mod to give it a aesthetic look.
I bought an old 15″ tft display from my friend because the display of my laptop didn’t offer enough workspace. This monitor just happened to be too ugly to be tolerated for long. I never had the guts to modify my laptop, so this new screen of mine offered a great opportunity to refresh my building skills. I turned some of my ideas into a 3d model to see how they look. The leading idea was to show the parts of the tft and of course: it shouldn’t be too hard to build.

The manufacturer and the model of the monitor is Samtron 51S. The rightmost picture is made with 3D Studio while the two on the left show the tft unmodified. 3d render turned out to resemble the looks of the finished ‘product’ quite a lot.

The monitor turned out to be pretty stable and firm, not flimsy at all. The original plastic cover did not offer any support for the metal stand. Now there is this metal stand and two plastic supports. I think this project was a succes; Monitor is now more cool looking than before the mod. Though everyone has their own opinion… The whole project cost under 100 euros and this includes the purchase of the TFT panel itself.
