Anyway, I'm not really interested in getting a replacement 2880x1620 IPS panel, but I would like to get a 1920x1080 IPS and I'm looking at various parts at this time. I would love to find out with 100% certainty that there is a 3840x2160 QHD IPS panel that could work in the W540 as well, but if not then a proper 1920x1080 IPS is fine with me. I know Lenovo gimped out and never offered the 1920x1080 IPS option for whatever dumbass reasons they had at the time, but I *should* be able to get such a panel into this machine without any issues.
Just wondering if anyone else has done such an upgrade, or does everyone just grab the 2880x1620 IPS panel and be done with it. The 3840x2160 would be nice 'cause I'd still run it at 1920x1080 and just get the better looking image quality overall.
If anyone has any input I'm all eyes... and yes I do plan to replace the craptastic W540 trackpad with one from the W541 soon too, got a docking station on order as well.
Thanks for any advice or suggestions...

This is assuming your W540 has at least 2-lane eDP 30-pin with the same pinout as those newer screens.

Thanks for the response and the info...
Anyway, I found an icc/icm profile for this panel over at NotebookCheck from one of their reviews and it's about as accurate as I suppose I'm going to be able to get it unless I find someone locally with a professional calibrator from X-Rite or Datacolor to do it properly.
So far so good...
