Ive found that the “better” quality the brand the better less liekly you will have with the FFC issue. Ive taken apart a Sony 17”, AOC 17”, Samsung 930B 19”, and Dell 17”. The only one which had the “FFC issue” was the cheap AOC one. The other three had nice cables to work with...Do be careful in the LCD ribbons that can take VERY little damage before rendering your LCD useless...These ribbons are found at least off the bottom edge of the LCD and possibly along the sides of the LCD crystal, which links the horizontal sections together. The AOC, the first one I took apart, only had the cables along the bottom, but the other 3 had them also along the right side (the east side if you are looking at the the front of the panel). Ive also read that the bigger the display you go, the more likely you are to find them also on the west side. The 32” linked to above, has only the bottom and right side (http://picasaweb.google.com/ovoskeuiks/LCDDisassembly#5156180337545182962), but you never know so BE CAREFUL!
