Seems like I'm gonna get a LP140QH2-SPB1
found 2 sellers claiming they are selling the exact part.

Getting the other ones seems to be a pain in Europe :/

I am late to the game. Could someone recommend where these _genuine_ displays are available for purchase new in the States? Seems like ebay and amazon only carry fakes :(.

Also worth mentioning, I have about 40 kits left and since Javi-Jie is no longer in this area, refund will be given instead of replacement if there're lost packets

I' m aware of the difficulties in sourcing panels. I will contact with zhangyongtao (a.k.a LCD fans) to see if there's possibilities for reliable panels.

It would be of great help, I already have my kit and trying to find a decent panel

I also just purchased a kit and now I'm afraid I won't be able to find a decent panel.
I normally purchase from LaptopScreen.com and I see they're all out of stock of the usual suspects. However, they do currently have a peculiar LP140QH1-SPA2 in stock:
https://www.laptopscreen.com/English/sc ... ash=433175
My concern is that mr.rhtuner clearly stated that "LP140QH1-SPA2 is the GLOSSY VERSION of the LP140QH1", but this listing states the screen is matte. Plus the price is significantly cheaper than the other known quality screens. So I'm afraid this could be a knock-off.
When I receive my kit, if there are no replies regarding my concern, I'll order one of these so-called LP140QH1-SPA2 matte screens (I'll state not to send me a compatible model) and let you guys know how it turns out.

That is Registry info.
You need to look up what it says in the EDID-chip on the LCD itself.

Do you have any ideas how I can pull that informaiton? the EDID chip info?

Hi, thank you RMSMajestic so much for this mod!!!

I'm seeing vertical white lines across my screen on install...could someone tell me if I received the wrong screen? I was told I bought a B140QAN01.5
