Slim display due to thin space
Little update on the monitor:
I decided to go with a BENQ GL2450 which I found cheap on ebay.
And since I was a bit to eager I forgot the “before” picture but amazon does have them
Well here is the whole monitor dismanteled
The pannel itself is the desired 1cm
The conductors dont -.-
So there goes my “dream” of having nothing showing out of the back… I think I will have to work around it somehow ._.
You could buy a universal LCD controller board like the V56. Buy the longest LVDS cable you can find. The board itself, w/o LED driver cost around 7.50€-8.00€ incl. shipping. The cheapest LVDS cable I found was 0.88€ incl. shipping. Usually they are around 20cm but you could also make a longer one yourself. A universal LED driver should be less than a euro, too.
You could then lead the cables to the inside of the cabinet (via the hinges probably). and hide the electronic boards in a hidden double floor board (if you know what I mean). Like a box inside, or on top of the mirror. Just make sure you allow air flow for cooling.

The problem with having it “not mounted” to the door itself will be the cables. I will keep on using the door so id have to make sure they dont break or get stuck or anything.
The power cords are strong enough so i dont have to worry - but the LVDS cable i dont trust toooo much ^^
I guess i will be building a “box” on the top side of the door and have the whole equipment in there. That way it is “out of sight”, near a hinge and got a low leverage.
But I may order one of the universal boards and mount that to the door as well. Just to reduce the size. Very nice tip from you! Didnt know they are SO MUCH THINER! Wish they had used that right away in the BenQ monitor ._.
And the air will flow via some airholes on the bottom and top - like a chimney (hope that is enough ^^)
