Hi Romain

This is for a system which has quite a few monitors, so they are looking for a
replaceable unit if possible.

I think I will get them to provide an actual measurement of the aperture to
make sure that it has to be 17 inch or if a 19 may be squeezed into it.

I take your point on the refresh rate and will check.

Thanks for the reply
