Is the HD+ screen on T420 significantly better than HD screen on T430 to go for T420 instead? I'll be using the laptop for emails, web browsing, watching youtube and not for gaming. Thanks in advance for any advice!

These are the viewing angles you're looking at with stock HD+, I presume HD would be a little worse. But they're 14" TN panels, so there's really not much to expect anyway.

However, the viewing angles are terrible. I guess HD+ is a better choice, because HD was just too dim to use during daylight even indoors. If you'll be using external monitor most of the time, get T430, if not, then I'd choose the T420 with HD+.
I have a T430 with the HD screen. I’m looking at just getting the HD+ screen for it.
I know I need the lcd itself and the HD+ cable.
You say you used the HD+ screen from the T420S? What about the video cable? Did you use the HD+ cable from the T420S on the T430?
