T430 screen replacement

#1 Post by bubu2 » Sun Nov 15, 2020 8:14 am

Hi, I'm new here.

I have a T430 and would like to have a better screen.

I read this nice guide:
https://medium.com/@n4ru/the-definitive ... ff3f6a8e2e

It recommends some screens, but it also notes Beware of sellers selling “compatible” displays

I don't know how to distinguish between compatible or original displays.
Anyone has any suggestion on how to distinguish them or where to buy a good one?

Is the screen on the link below an original or a compatible one?

Thank you!

The point about be careful about compatible displays is that sometimes they can sell you a screen of the same resolution, same compatibility, but the display quality of the original rubbish TN panels T430 came with, disappointing you quite a bit let's just say.
I have once ordered a "compatible" T6x 15" UXGA display which turned out to be a TN one with rubbish viewing angles of the original XGA display I've had.
Then you have a much harder time for disputes because technically they didn't false advertise it.

Anyone knows where to buy a good-quality display for the T430?
