Confirming before purchase

#1 Post by ecojournalist » Fri May 17, 2019 10:03 am

I have a T430S, and want to upgrade the FHD 1600x900 to a better screen. I already have the required adapter. I want to make sure that this screen:

Is the one that I can purchase and should work. I understand there is a risk of green-lines and/or light being emitted from the edge though.

Can anyone give me a go-ahead with this?

You have some resolutions wrong. 1600x900 is the HD+ screen, and unless you are using the WQHD kit you need a 1080p screen.

Not sure what chip you have, but if you have the WQHD kit, then yes this would work.

But as the lovely King has said, FHD =/= 1600 x 900. It is HD+

However this seller quoted
Part number LP140QH1-SPB1
(or replacement model)
Not so sure how I feel about getting a 'replacement model', I'd rather scourge the internet for a few more weeks for a genuine used LCD or from a dealer that does not do this compatible 'get the sale' crap.

Gotcha. Thanks for the info. Apparently the ones I linked to are out of stock. I found a different one. And yes, I have the WQHD kit. Will this one also do the trick? Is there any benefit to say this one or waiting for the others to come back in stock?
