T440P IPS screen upgrade advice

#1 Post by Sylvyo » Sun Jun 21, 2020 1:21 pm

Hello guys, I need your help finding the right IPS screen and link to buy for my T440P.

I've been searching for advices and found octoperf review where he said that the best one is LG LP140WF3-SPD1 but even AUO B140HAN01.3 or Innolux N140HCE-EN1 Rev. C2 should do the job.
Since many sellers on ebay or aliexpress sell "compatible" screens, after days of searching the net I've found this genuine links in my opinion.

- LG LP140WF3-SPD1 https://www.ebay.com/itm/Original-Lenov ... Swux5YTpoP
- AUO B140HAN01.3 https://www.aliexpress.com/item/3280795 ... 2e0eHrFFtG
- Innolux N140HCE-EN1 Rev. C2 https://www.lcd4laptop.co.uk/products/i ... 926b&_ss=r

Please share with me your experience with any of this screens and the link where you bought it cause I don't want to end up buying the wrong "compatible" one. Also from what I've found is that the AUO B140HAN01.3 may arrive deffective and that Innolux N140HCE-EN1 Rev. C2 may be fragile on the corners and easily damaged so I don't know if that was just for that guy or it's in general.
*If you can please send me links from Europe or aliexpress since USA shipping costs are too high for me.

Thanks! :D

My T440p already came from the factory with an LP140WF3-SPD1 and it is still immaculate.
From your links:
LG seems to be your best bet, but is the most expensive
AU is the cheapest, but farthest away
Innolux is the closest, but only order from him if they first confirm you will receive that exact screen.
Their smallprint clearly states:
It is not guaranteed that you will receive the same part number as in the listing title. We will ship a 100% compatible item of equal to the original part number...
Supplied item might differ slightly as we may send compatible part.

Lucky one! I wish I could have had the IPS screen already with my T440P but I can't complain much, for 200 € I received a laptop that looks like new without any scratch and 16 GB ram, 128 SSD, i7 4600.
The critical upgrade for me is the screen now and a i7 4702mq I found for 65 € (wish I could buy i7 4712 but it's not worth the cost since I've found this cheap) and later on a M.2 SSD.

My choice with the screen would be between LG and Innolux since I can't wait that long for it to arrive from China, been used to have an IPS screen I can't get used to the TN one.
The link I've put for Innolux seems legit and I had some users assure me it's genuine, but it's always best to ask the seller :D
Now, from what I know LG is better than the others and I would like to buy it but I wish I could find it a little cheaper and someone sent me this link where he bought it https://www.laptopscreen.com/238703 and it's cheaper than the one from eBay, he said:
"When I ordered they said they no longer had LP140WF3(SP)(D1) and only had LP140WF3(SP)(D2) in stock. However I did end up receiving a LP140WF3(SP)(D1) so not sure if they still have them in stock. Comparing the two panels on panelook.com they seem to be nearly identical."
But when I go to that link there are 3 models available for that screen when I check "matte" option and the one which says Lenovo is not available so I don't know if they're good and which to choose.

Same small print problem: brand new part made by one of the above mentioned major manufacturer.
You need to absolutely confirm you get the correct screen.

Is it possible to get 1600x900 IPS? With 1920x1080 on 14inch everything is too small. Changing DPI in Windows doesn't work well.

There don't seem to be any HD+ 1600x900 IPS screens around, probably because there are plenty FHD 1920x1080 IPS available.
On FHD you could set scaling to 125%, which might do the trick.

Which part of "There don't seem to be any HD+ 1600x900 IPS screens around" do you not understand?

I wasn't sure if it refers to T440p specifically or any Thinkpad or any laptop.
