New Source For LED Mod Kits?

#1 Post by byritc » Tue Sep 10, 2019 2:25 pm

It appears that Monty has disappeared and is no longer responding to inquires for his LED Mod Kits. I've been having a hard time hunting one down for my x61, so I'm curious if there's other sources out there for them.

Unfortunately nothing can compare to Montys kits, especially the daylight kits for AFFS screens.

There are (plug & play) chinese kits which ar good enough for the TN XGA screens from iccfl or xccfl.

But these have PWM flickering visible for some people. It was annoying for me. There is a PWM mod from Monty (on his legacy webpages) that raises the PWM frequency to non visible levels, but that involves some soldering.
