    With a 19" lcd you should have no kind of problems with customs. Go right on through.

    Yes, they will charge you. You can bring 1 used or new computer but it has to be a laptop, a screen is not among the exonerated items.

    My advise would be fly into POP or PUJ and put the TV in your luggage and dont declare it under any circumstances, PUJ has never stopped me or anyone for that matter when I have traveled there. POP just keep walking and no speakie spanish, If they insist on stopping you hand the guy a 10 dollar bill and keep walking. Never had a problem doing this. SDQ you can also get thru 80-90% without being checked. STI is definate NO GO!!! They put all bags thru xray on leaving airport and will see the TV and you will have to pay a few hundred dollars. Good luck.

    Good to know about SDQ. I always tend to bring equipment when I travel through STI and always see the person at the xray look at my bags with a very perplexed look lol. Never been stopped though, always just go right through....maybe just my luck.

    The one time I went through STI, I had to put my luggage through the xray. Not really a problem though... as the screen was not working...

    I've seen people searched leaving PUJ, and almost got searched myself but the porter got it through, (my wife was walking a bit behind, and it looked like I had four bags just for me, he told the customs guy it was for two people). It's definitely best to pay the guys a few bucks to carry your stuff through, far less chance of being checked, and it's good to support the local workers.
