The gentleman is currently checking for me to see if he can specify a brand of monitor replacement kit.
....And he can. This is what you fella's need to be doing. It will save you so much more time than reordering. Get a tech guy to ship you a Samsung WSXGA+ Replacement Monitor Kit. Mine is on its way! Whoot!

Just out of curiosity tho, if a screen needs to be returned how long does it take for the exchange to happen(shipping out plus receiving the new unit)?

|1. The Dell Original Configuration page: *Note: this will ony work for North American customers*
i. Go to Dell support site;
ii. Select Home and Home Office, and on this new page under Customize Support on the left, click Select a System;
iii. On this new page enter your Service tag in the appropriate field and press Go;
iv. Now you will find on the left a new option, Original Configuration, click this and enter you account information as prompted (or create a new account).
v. Congratulations, you should be able to see your full system specs as shipped, including your screen manufacturer.
