Would anyone help with finding the best panel for color gamut with least ghosting and hotspot issues? Thank you very much :D

For the 1366x768p IPS screens, see https://thiccpad.blogspot.com.

From the looks of it, the LG125WH2-SLT1 is the winner.

Backup: X220 4291-P79 i5-2520M

In pieces: two retired but working X61Ts
RIP: 760XD 9546-U9E; X61 7676-A24; and a BOE-Hydis HV121P01-100 in failed SXGA+ mod

thank you for this, what concerns me is that this panel is listed on some auctions like led non ips panel which is kind of strange to me :?

It's a misleading ad, practically a scam IMO-- baiting you with the LCD model you want, but they actually don't have it so they'll send a "compatible" screen.
"Compatible" in this case means that it's guaranteed to work with your laptop, but it's not the same model you ordered-- this usually means it's a crappy TN panel.

TBH I've yet to order any LCDs online. This IPS screen I'm staring at while typing this post-- it came with the used X220 I bought a few months ago. I got lucky because the seller didn't know it had an IPS screen. :D

That LG125WH2-SLT1 screen is also used in the Thinkpad Twist S230U.
If you find one, make sure you get the non-touch version.
I have one in my X220.
