hinges on my t430 became lose and would like to replace them.
Does anyone have experience with the stuff from aliexpress
or China in general? I don't mind used hinges or "refurbished" ones as long as it's not complete rubbish.
One set worked fine for about a year, right one become a bit loose (juddery, but still quite stiff). Replaced both with set number 2 and it's pretty much okay but if you pick up the laptop quick enough, the display will either close or open to 180 degrees.
It can't be determined how it'll work until you install them, because just before I did that, I tried to check them with hand & pliers and it looked like they were stiffer than the 1st set. There's no judder but they're definitely not stiffer.
I'm planning to replace them with the 3rd set or try to fix 1st set somehow and put it back.
