Re: IPS for the W530.

Naturally an IPS panel will have better viewing angles, but are you certain you are creating an optimal profile? A bad profile will certainly give disappointing results. Personally I use an i1Display Pro, with excellent results. From most accounts the built-in calibrator is rubbish in comparison to a recent generation calibrator.

Regarding the 540 screen, the connectors are completely different, so it isn't an option. I know of nothing that will fit.

W530 uses LVDS connector for screen, and W540 uses eDP for the screen.
