Re: T520 screen upgrade options

Hi, have been following this thread in lurk mode. What's the recommend IPS 1920x1080 sRGB ( not Adobe wide gamut) matte panel that is a 'drop in' replacement on a T520? There are lots of compatible matte panels! The LP156WF1 TLB2 and N156HGE-L11 mentioned above as examples. You have then the AUO B1...

Re: T520 screen upgrade options

If that's what came with that machine, it might be the AU Optronics screen, no? And would that be even easier to install (take my entire screen and case off of my laptop, put the W520 one directly on)? Yes, the assemblies are the same, provided that nobody messed around with the panels, chances are...

Or is anything else that needs soldering? Can you also solder only the FHD board and leave the mSATA board o...

Re: T520 screen upgrade options

You can still find some if you're patient enough, and there are no better options if you want to stay "matte". I have tried few screens on W-T510 and W-T520 models, I have a B156HW01 V5 (glossy model, I think I put it in a W510), which kind of ok, but darker than v4. I also tried a LP156WF1-TLB2, wh...

Welcome to the forum!

Yes, that screen will work, it's a plug&play replacement and actually the best panela available.

Be careful when buying one that you get an original B156HW01 V4! Ask for picture and avoid "compatible" models.

I have a question to the screens, for the T520 you said that you have an Innolux one, which I though were generally not so good, have you had the chance to compare it against the AUO B156HW01 v4 panel? (Which is still regarded as the best available for this generation).

Re: Question about the T500 vs T520

other than using different memory chips... Both models use DDR3 RAM. Though I really like the T500, I think the T520 will be a better choice. You get a much better CPU, double the RAM (16GB vs 8GB) and mSata support (which can be handy in some cases). They keyboard layout used in the T520 is the be...

Re: Upgrading from T440s to X220: pros/cons?

I would also keep the T440s, the CPU will be more power efficient and the integrated Intel graphic card is also better. The only argument for the X220 would be if you *have to* have 16GB RAM, since the max RAM you could get in the T440s is 12GB
