Contacted the Finnish Lenovo Support, and had a technician change the LCD-panel a month ago. No improvement. I cannot measure the contrast-ratio (like they did in Notebookcheck 05/03/2016 - 885:1 on a 20FN003LGE), nor do I have access to an external monitor or a comparable machine, but maybe YOU could help me to pinpoint the problem (and request a solution)?
http://www.lagom.nl/lcd-test/ has some interesting test-images. http://www.lagom.nl/lcd-test/black.php is a black-level test. Could you, with a normal FHD T460 at your service, TRY THE TEST, please. Which is the first square your screen discerns? I need this data, and cannot find a better place to search for it than this forum. My T460 shows barely the 9th square at night, lights off, the 10-11th under normal (quite optimal) working conditions. That cannot be right! On a ThinkPad! The other three laptops in my household reach to 3-5th square easily, and in my 30 years with portables I cannot recall a contrast-problem like this.
Thanks in advance!
Just for fun, I checked that black-level webpage on my nearly 10 year old CCFL-monitor (1280x1024), every square from 1-255 is visible.
Let's hope for you someone here has a T460 with FHD to compare notes with.
Check out The Boardroom for Parts, Mods and Other Services.
Afternoon, 3pm, normal daylight: at highest brightness level:
I can see all the numbers 1-255, but only dark squares 9-255.
Guess laptop LCDs aren't all THAT great...
Morning, 6am, still a bit darkish outside: at highest brightness level (15):
I can see all the numbers 1-255, but now 2 more dark squares 7-255.
For my personal use, I normally run that X230 at brightness level 9 (out of 1-15).
This is a travel machine with W7-Pro/SP1 for reading email and browsing the web, nothing else.
It also does have Office 2010, Irfanview and Foxit PDF, just in case.
FYI: the X230 normally comes with HD screens (1366 x 768) in TN or IPS (I have both)
My above machine got a special FHD mod (1920x1080), but I run it at 1600x900 since FHD on 12.5" is too much for my eyes.
A bright day here (outside my home-office/study), and over HALF of the squares utterly undiscernable (with normal brightness the 15th is the first I can see), and ordinary text a pain to read! I'm trying to research this issue also on Lenovo Support Forum, thus far to no avail.
It's a 15" T60 with a T61 motherboard and non-widescreen UXGA screen (1600x1200).
Several LCD versions are available, CCFL (BoeHydis HV150UX1-100 or -101 and Sharp LQ150U1LW22 or -W22N) and the very best of them all:
LED (BoeHydis HV150UX2-100) which requires some modding (see my website: http://theboardroom.info/led_mod.html ).
You'll get more screen-height to work with than with anything else currently on the market!
And they are all IPS (BoeHydis) or ASV (Sharp https://www.sharpsma.com/advanced-super-view-asv- )
It's not the latest or greatest generation of laptop, but you'll be astounded at its capabilities!
A MUST for programmers and text writers!
