Thinkpad T440p screen

#1 Post by Peter Linu » Mon Jul 15, 2019 7:40 pm

I am elderly and the screen is without much contrast making it difficult to read. A friend told me that the screen can be replaced with a "gloss" 1600x900 for a relatively cheap price. Can someone point me at more information and ideally, to a seller?

The only 1600x900 screen I know about is the TN panel, the mid range option when buying a T440p new. Contrast and viewing angles will still be terrible because it's a TN panel. Most upgrade to FHD IPS panels.

Hi DT,
Interesting info regarding the FHD IPS screen.
Can you point me at a seller? Either new or used is OK.

N140HCE-EN1 Rev C2 is the best, make sure you get the exact screen with Rev C2 and not Rev C1, or any other "compatible"!

I might also be interested if I end up disliking the stock 14"HD(1366x768) screen.
Are there any good sellers in Europe's Ebay ?
