What technology would be best for a computer display that has to survive for
long periods in a hot environment, up to 40C days, 27C nights. Doesn't have
to be particularly hi res or pretty, just has to hang in there.  TIA

Normal computer LCD's are typically rated for at least 40degC
continuous operation.

depends. if you can maintain air flow an lcd should do fine, just get a
big brand sony etc.

its not the display thats the worry its the power supply. high heat
means stressed capacitors and cheep units use 85'c caps

least most have 3 yr wty's so if it fails you can get it repaired or
replaced during this time.

do you need an attatched unit or will an external crt work
  an lcd might but you need one specifically meant for the work and one
might expect additional cooling be installed.

One very good monitor manufacture that we use for some clients is Marshall.
These monitors are designed to work in very harsh conditions. They have both
rack-mount and free standing models.

Many TV broadcasters, security agencies, remote search and rescue services,
aerospace industries, and the military use them for remote locations and in
harsh environmental areas. They can operate under bright studio lights, or
out in the hot sun, at high altitude locations, or they can be used in
extremely cold temperatures such as in the far North. Their quality is
excellent. Their price also reflects their performance and capability. When
you buy a Marshall, remember that the power supply is sold separately.
