Re: Thinkpad W520 screen replacement. Suggestion on after market screens.

I don't like glossy screens so never thought of buying the v7 model. The v1 seems good solution (it's also very bright). But i don't think that i'll be able to find such old screens and that they won't be defective or at least have a dead pixel :( People all these years asked for testing them before...

Re: Thinkpad W520 screen replacement. Suggestion on after market screens.

I finally bought from ebay the AUO B156HW01 v4. It was the original. But it was defective (fairly big press mark on one side) and had to return it to the seller. My impression of this screen was not good. It was very very red! And even when i changed the color's temperature to higher value i kept se...

People on the fourms will be able to sell you a compatible GENUINE W520
I don't know how safe is it to buy from members of forums. Actually i can't see any sign of safety! Maybe i'll find to buy from Europe and not from Hong Kong. You did very well to warn me. How knows what happens some times..

Re: Thinkpad W520 screen replacement. Suggestion on after market screens.

Thinkpad4by3 that's a pity.. I'd like to upgrade the screen. But of course not take the risk. Do these pictures i attach help to know if the FHD display will be compatible? Do they give any clues about the wires that you said above? https://ibb.co/fahrsk https://ibb.co/fE3xXk https://ibb.co/bAJQJQ h...

Re: Thinkpad W520 screen replacement. Suggestion on after market screens.

Re: Thinkpad W520 screen replacement. Suggestion on after market screens.

Thinkpad4by3 i didn't understand very well what you meant. I search for the screen using the FRU number. As you say they write at the descriptions that they'll send the exact model or something compatible if not found the exact. From the price i'm afraid about the quality of the screen. Also the pol...
