Frankenpad seller "isaiah53" on ebay

#1 Post by tecmes » Mon Feb 01, 2021 9:47 am

(Not a FS/WTB but I figure this is the right place to get active buyer/sellers opinion?)

There's that a person selling SXGA Frankenpads on eBay but there is no obvious corresponding forum user here. Is he a known user here?
(Ebay example itemhere. Again, I'm not affiliated with that person or anything.)

(His ad is intense but seems legit. However he's selling "genuine LG.philips 15" SXGA T60 screens" which seems odd. I thought all 15" non-XGA T60 screens were BOE?
Also his other items for sale include a lot of bizarre numbered item and his recent FB is all trackpoint caps and one negative frankenpad)
Typer: X61s. Drawer: X31. Office: T560. First crush: X20. Nostalgia: SXGA+ 770 (one busted power card too many)
Gripe: why nobody makes recessed laptop power jacks?

The 15" SXGA+ IPS panels seen in T60/p are LG Phillips indeed.

I've never dealt with the seller in question, but he's been around for a wehile.

He's advertising 1400x1050 though - correctly labelled as "SXGA+"
This is a rather nice resolution and if the brightness is okay that's not too bad
I'm not well versed in panel brands though and don't know who used to make these

I thought BOE was 1600x1200 aka UXGA, UGA

P.S. only 45 mins on this battery? That's not too generous is it? I never tried it but I hoped a new GreenCell should have delivered more.. I think at least in the UK you can still buy a "new" (new? NOS? who knows..) GreenCell from Amazon
X220, 2 *T520
