I have a Lenovo ThinkPad T410 Intel Core i5 2.4ghz 14.1 laptop. The original screen is cracked so I hooked an ACER X191W to the vga port and it worked. These ThinkPads are prety good machines you just can't stand on them. I've been using it this way for about a year now. Have a tecky friend who will put a new (used) screen on for me. I just have to buy it.
I was wondering, can I use either the 14.1” WXGA (1280 X 800), or the 14.1” WXGA + (1440 X 900)?
I see alot of both on ebay.
When picking a T410 screen in my opinion you should pick based on manufacturer. Stock LG and AUO are better looking than the stock Samsung. If buying a specific screen you can try looking on Panelook and find one with better specs.
Personally I like the LG 1280x800 screens. They are bright and vibrant, but not bright enough for use in direct sun.

As tpfan. Said, panelook.com is your favorite friend when shopping for lcd panels.

The efficiency of two screens equally sized with equal numbers if pixels are equal. The time spent by a 4:3 user complaining about 16:9 is proportional to the inefficiency working with a 16:9 display, therefore the amount of useful work extracted is equal.
I found this in speccy. 14.1" WXGA (1280x800) display, anti-glare, LED backlight
14.1" WXGA+ (1440x900) display, anti-glare, LED backlight. No brightness, grain, number of colors or viewing angles. Something else to think about. This is about all I saw on ebay.
I looked at ebay and some other sites and saw screens $30 and up. I went to panelook.com and couldn't seem to figure out how to navigate their site. They looked good and if I found an inexpensive 14.1" WXGA+ (1440x900) display, anti-glare, LED backlight, screen I would much rather. Found some part numbers on ebay that panelook would reconize. Panelook dosen't find t410 thinkpad in their search. You have to have a part number. (or so I gathered)
I don't buy much online. Kind of intimidating.

Read the small print of the sellers, do NOT go for a "compatible".
