Is there anything that makes this monitor particularly special? i.e. Would
replacing the monitor not work out cheaper (factor in time for looking for
a solution, the fact that you're most likely going to have to buy from
overseas in which case there's uncertainty around delivery times and
whether it'll arrive at all, and the time to do the actual replacement) or
is there a requirement that monitor meets that I'm missing?
