Is there a cheaper 30-pin screen that will work with A1181s?

Text:

Hi All!

I saw this eBay listing and it made me think of a question:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/13-3-LCD-CCFL-Screen-Converter-30pin-to-20pin-HLRG-for-Macbook-A1181-A1185-DJNG-/111086508433?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item19dd459991

This is a converter that converts the standard 20-pin A1181 video cable to 30-pin, presumably because there is a 30-pin screen out there that will work in A1181s with the converter.  The ones suggested in the listing are 14" screens and therefore would not work.  Anyone know of a 13.3" 30-pin screen at a reasonable price?

I'm buying quantities of A1181s and am experiencing a severe shortage of screens.  To buy them new is too expensive (around $80/ea), so I would love to find a reasonable workaround, or even just a source of usable grade-B screens for less than the new price.

Thanks!
