Re: Upgrading X220/X230 to FHD 1080p

It fits almost perfectly, I did compare it when I received it with the LP125WF2-SPB3: https://meettechno.eu/wiki/NV125FHM-N62 I needed to make slide modifications to the bezel since it comes a bit close to the hinges but it fits rather well.

Re: X201 wqxga screen from 51nb. Any Ideas how to buy one?

I did order one and it is just on the way atm, I did order via superbuy.com, but as far as I know it will not just work with a x201 since it also requires you to have the custom 51nb motherboard with a 8th generation intel CPU. The edp connector on the standard x201 mother board is not usable with t...

Re: Upgrading X220/X230 to FHD 1080p

Did anybody here buy NV125FHM-N62 screen to install it with the kit? I definitely remember that somebody bought a screen that has not been tested with the kit yet and said he wants to try it. P.S.: Packing first 24 paid orders. I know, I said I'll ship on the weekend. I always fail with these estim...

Re: 51nb 8th generation intel x201 motherboard

I am trying to get one of the x210 boards from https://weidian.com/item.html?itemID=2205138453 did some one already order a board to Europe? Since as far as I saw it is not possible to fill in a European address in the web shop, how did you do it?

Re: Upgrading X220/X230 to FHD 1080p

Well actually the SPB3 has less colors than the SPB4 -> http://www.panelook.com/modelcompare.php?ids=24654,29324,25936 I got a set of SPB4 here: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Free-Shipping-LP125WF2-SPB3-LP125WF2-SPB4-B125HAN02-0-LTN125HL02-301-Pin-LCD-LED-Display-SCREEN/32809228844.html?spm=a2g0s....

Re: Upgrading X220/X230 to FHD 1080p

I will do the test ;) the specs looked quite good, 16.7M Colors like the SPB4, a little higher viewing angle and it's still in production.

Re: New battery for X201 or brand new ThinkPad

If you plan to change the motherboard of your x201 this might be interesting for you:

Re: Upgrading X220/X230 to FHD 1080p

Since it is not stated in the info post I wonder will I need a 30 or 40 Pin dispaly? For this mod the cable stays the same so it should be 40 pins right?
