You received a cheaper compatible screen 01.1 , NOT the real deal 01.2.
Thank you for your input!! My screen is glossy and doesn't look too bad so I'll just keep it.

Re: T420s/T430s FHD/WQHD upgrade kits pre-order thread

Are there any FHD boards still available for the t420s version? I'm thinking of returning my t420 and getting a t420s just for the better screen upgrade.

If not, is the only screen upgrade option to get HD+ 1600x900? Link: http://www.thinkwiki.org/wiki/T420_and_T430_H...
