    Just as a heuristic, all lcds need controllers, 99% of them are extremely expensive and hard to come by.

    well yeah, that's true
    but the controllers for black&white displays aren't expensive, you can make them at home BUT for a colour display... that's a whole different story

    Sorry for not really adding anything here but...

    I am looking also looking to reuse a laptop display, but am willing to use part of the laptop motherboard. I'm thinking that the motherboard will have the lcd controller on it and that maybe I can canibalise the controller aswell? Or am I being a little naive?

    ugh I think that might be harder to do then to say... I'm not sure but I really doubt you could use just a part of the motherboard

    depends on the laptop, still....
