Yes it is!
I bought a display from a friend for $20. He described it as "one of those new looking flat monitors". Low and behold it was a $699.99 flat display. The attached cable is nothing like i've seen before, it is a USB looking thing but four times as wide. I've researched everything on the net, and it appears that it is something native to Japanese Sony Vaio computers. So, the only place they sell the display is in Japan. I've run the few pages i could find about the display through a language converter (babelfish) and they describe the display connecter as "attachment liquid crystal display private display output (40 pins)". They don't even have a name for the connector!, just a description. My guess is that is somekind of DVI + sound connector. More on this later..
