Hello everyone.

I have been a happy user of LCDSirReal for almost a decade now. But unfortunetly my G15 is getting a bit old and worn down so i'm looking for a replacement.
I really cannot do without the info display that the G15 has. It's really really usefull.
I have bene looking at the G19, but the display is simply too small for my liking (and the price is a bit high).
So i have been looking around for external displays that i can program with different information like the ones that LCDSirReal offers.

But so far i have not found any that is satisfactory.
What i have found is:

alphacool_external_240x128_lcd_display - Pros: good size, good customizability - Cons: looks like its only blue and white colors (yuck)
http://www.xtremecomputing.co.uk/articles_pages/alphacool_external_240x128_lcd_display,4.html

USBD480-WQ43 - Pros: good size, colors - Cons: not enclosed, and unknown customizability
http://www.lcdinfo.com/products/usbd480-wq43.html

USB LCD - LCD System info - Pros: colors, good customizability - Cons: very small

So I was hoping that someone knew of any alternatives?
I was aiming for something that is about 15cm x 10cm preferably with colors, but B&W will also do, and ofc. some way to customize what info is displayed.

Thanks in advance.

Take a look at the G510s.  I think its compatible with LCDSirReal and is still available new.

What you can do is cut the keyboard off your G15!
I did it and now i have a G15 Screen that just sits on my desk.

Here are some images
