cracked lcd screen; dismantled; now what?

Specs: Windows Vista
Hi, I have a V7 monitor R19WPS model 900W. Just discovered the screen is cracked. I dismantled the monitor, have it down to where I can lift the lcd screen out. Can I replace the broken piece with any brand, or does it have to be V7? Also, when I measure the piece itself, it is approx. 16 1/4 x 10 1/4 in. I know this is probably stupid, but is that a 17 in. screen? Or does it go by monitor frame measurement? (which is 18 in.) Some screens on ebay look more square than mine. Any guidance would be appreciated. I am obviously NOT tech savvy. Thank you very much!

V7 R19WPS 19" Widescreen LCD Monitor

What is cracked ?

Just the glass on the front of the LCD panel, or the LCD assembly itself ?

Does it display fine and the only thing wrong is that ?

If it's just the glass, you could replace it with any suitable piece of glass.

If it's the display assembly that's cracked, or if it no longer displays properly, it's extremely unlikely a new display assembly is available as a replacement part, and even if it is it would probably cost too much for it to be worth replacing it. (You CAN get new display assemblies for laptops and netbooks, but usually you can't for standalone monitors.Your best chance of finding out if it is available would probably be by searching on the monitor manufacturer's web site or by contacting them - if it is or was available, you may be able to find it on the web as well, more likely if you have it's part number to search with.)

Used LCD display assemblies are not a good buy, unless the the backlight has been replaced - the backlight has a limited life span.

The display size quoted for TV and monitor displays is always ~ that of the diagonal, not the width, of the display area seen when it's in it's enclosure.The actual diagonal measurement may be exactly that or a little less or a little more.
