T440 Screen/Display/LCD Upgrade

2020-04-23, 18:45 PM

So I have a ThinkPad T440 (NOT T440S or T440P) with an i5 4300U and 8Gb of RAM. As it has a very uncomfortable 1366x768p TN LCD panel, I'm looking to upgrade to a FHD (1920x1080p) IPS panel. I have found plenty of information regarding this upgrade on the T440S and T440P but I simply cannot find a list of compatible panels for the normal T440. I suspect, with the design being so similar, the panels that are compatible with the T440S (such as the one linked below) are also compatible with the T440 but I can't be sure. Whilst on lockdown with COVID-19, I would really like to get this upgrade done but I'm not able to order a panel until I know for certain it is compatible. Could someone give me a hand? Thank you in advance.

The B140HAN01.2 will work, as well as the .1 and .3 versions of the same panel. Another good option is the Innolux N140HCE-EN1 REV. C2

Excellent, thank you ever so much!! I think I'll order this AUO B140HAN1.3 panel (https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Au-Optronics-B140HAN01-3-14-Laptop-Screen-IPS/123655605541) - unless the Innolux N140HCE-EN1 REV. C2 has any advantage over the others?

Oh plus, will the display brightness be adjustable in Windows 10 with these panels as I've heard that some don't allow for control of the brightness?

If I remember correctly that's only for the xx50 generation... (e.g. T450)

 

Edit: Re the Innolux panel, many consider it to be the better option. I have both BOE and Innolux panels in different ThinkPads and I have the impression the latter has better contrast and color reproduction. But that's my own impression. 

 

There are for sure few threads here in the forum with similar discussions, I'd recommend you to use the search function of this forum and read some other user opinions  ;-)
