legion y540 display differences 300nits 60Hz / 144Hz

2019-08-31, 13:30 PM



Still trying to decide on the display type when buying this Legion Y540 laptop.


I have not got enough awnsers. I asked before in this thread : https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Gaming-Laptops/y540-60hrz-vs-144hz-display-differences/m-p/4515501#M30463 , And was adviced this page : https://psref.lenovo.com/syspool/Sys/PDF/Lenovo%20Laptops/Lenovo%20Legion%20Y540-15IRH/Lenovo_Legion_Y540_15IRH_Platform_Specifications.pdf


I dont think its enough. I want to know conclusively, if there are any other differences between the 300 nits 60hz and 144hz display panels aside from the framerates. Now i know they will have the same color gamut, and brightness, but what about response times? Cant find anything about that. And what about the bits? Are they 6 bit ( +dithering maybe ) or 8 bit? Are they the same panels ( ie brand etc. ), with the only difference being the framerate? Or are they different ( ie brand / response times / etc ). I find the specsheet lacking.


Sorry for the many questions, i am merely trying to pick the best laptop for my son with the money i can afford, and i get a little "carried away" on specs etc. I mean its only 50euro differnce between the 2 panels, so if anything other than the framerates is inferior on the 60 hz panel, i think i will go with the 144hz panel. If they are exactly the same apart from framerates, i will go with the 60Hz panel and save 50eu to maybe spend it on insurance or something.


Please help a me make a good, informed choise and make my son the happiest kid alive! ( for a couple off weeks )
