Screen swap for T450s?

#1 Post by Olwe » Sun Feb 03, 2019 9:01 pm

According to this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bsC5lAqkB6Y you can get a AU Optronics B140HAN01.3 (like this: https://www.ebay.com/itm/1920-1080-14-0 ... :rk:3:pf:0 ) and change from a lesser resolution screen to a full 1920x1080 screen. Is this true? I'm on Ubuntu so I don't think I need to worry about the "white list". Any advice appreciated.

Yes. that's correct. The panel is plug and play.

Just make sure to contact the seller and specifically ask if she/he has that exact model in stock and not a "compatible" one...

Could you point me to a reliable source that isn't hundreds of dollars?

Difficult to say... Many sellers have them sometimes, sometimes not. Lately I have bought a good amount of (different) panels from eBay seller Win0Win, located overseas.

There are also few good alternatives to the AUO panels, you can also look vor the v0 to v2 models. I also have a LP140WF4 SPA1 and few N140HCE-EN1, the latter one being an excellent panel! Rev C2 would be more recommended since the screw holes are in the same place as the original LCD in your T450s.

I would also recommend you contact the sellers before hand and ask them if they have the exact models you're looking for. Also ask for original pictures. I personally look for sellers that have many positive feedback.

One more thing, yesterday I got a LP140WF1-SPU1 panel and installed it in a T440p. I'm positively surprised how good this panel is.

It's glossy, but is very brilliant, has an excellent contrast and super viewing angles. If you don't mind glossy I can highly recommend this model.
