i cant find a solid reputable source for the FHD upgrade otherwise id look into it, where did you get yours?thelash wrote: ↑Sun Oct 20, 2019 4:58 amI agree. I'd done a t420s and my present T430 with the FHD mod, but was always curious as to how good an alternative the Alienware screen was, given the lower price and it's a simple drop in replacement. The chance to buy a cheap T430 with a broken screen meant I could find out. Certainly much better than standard screens, and maybe a better choice for a gamer as it's definitely a bit more responsive, but for me it has to be matte and ips.
Screens: The ebay link above gives a list of screens compatible with this board. Buying one is a bit of a lottery - I've only used the AUO B140HAN01.3, bought from Chinese sellers on ebay and been happy enough. Then again, I'm very much a beginner with this, and have only bought and fitted 4 ips screens into thinkpads - one a drop in for an X220, one for T420s and T430 requiring converter boards, and a drop in for a T440p. That one was a Chimei Innolux N140HCE-EN1 v2, the best of the 4 I've bought. Bright, true colours, proper white and blacks, excellent angles. Got is off AliExpress. According to this https://www.reddit.com/r/thinkpad/comme ... 0_fhd_mod/ it will work in a T430. I still have T430 and T440p, but not sure I want to swap the screens to see if it does work, as the T440p is fantastic with it.
