Monitor Panel Part Database
Updated last on 20 October 2016

Maintained by Simon Baker and Kid Jansen

While there are many different manufacturers of LCD monitors, the panels themselves are actually only manufactured by a relatively small selection of companies. The three main manufacturers tend to be Samsung, AU Optronics and LG.Display (previously LG.Philips), but there are also a range of other companies like CMO and CPT which are used widely in the market. Below is a database of all the current panel modules manufactured in each diagonal. These show the module number along with important information including panel technology and a detailed spec. This should provide a detailed list of panels used, and can give you some insight into what is used in any given LCD display. 

We also have an extensive database showing what panels are used in LCD screens, available here.

Note: These are taken from manufacturer product documentation and websites which are linked at the bottom of this page. Specs are up to date to the best of our knowledge, and new panels will be added as and when they are produced. Where gaps are present, the detail is unknown or not listed in documentation. The colour depth specs are taken from the manufacturer, and so where they specify FRC and 8-bit etc, this is their listing. Absence of such in the table below does not necessarily mean they aren't using FRC etc, just that this is how the manufacturer lists the spec on their site. If backlight section is blank, assume CCFL.
