Re: T440s - LG or AUO Display

Both LCD panels B140HAN01.2 and B140HAN01.3 seem compatible electrically and mechanically.
I agree, 90 GBP is overpriced. $55...$65 even on amazon, laptopscreen.

Hi,

one of the sellers in Amazon stated this in screen description:

"*IMPORTANT! Please, make sure you have the same screen resolution, or replacement will not work. HD screen (1366x768) uses one channel video cable, while HD+ (1600x900) and Full HD (1920x1080) use 2-channels video cable, thus they are not compatible. You can upgrade screen resolution by switching video cable to Full HD only! Please, refer to manufacturer to find compatible video cables for HD+ and FullHD resolutions."

 

My t440 is with HD screen (1366x768),

Should I really also need to change the cable?!?

Officail T440 platform specification doesn't mention FHD panel support, HD and HD+ does.
http://psref.lenovo.com/syspool/Sys/PDF/ThinkPad/ThinkPad%20T440/ThinkPad_T440_Platform_Specifications.pdf

T440 models with HD and HD+ LCD panels installed utilize the same eDP cable with FRU 04X5449. Another eDP cable is for the touch models.

I've found a guy in my town selling FHD TN screen, and I'll try to convince him to make some tests with my notebooks.

In exchange of few beers ofcourse. Currently I have t440p and t440 and will try to test the screen on both.

I've installed B140HAN01.1 (FHD matte IPS) in a T440p with any cable update.

Anyone of you experience having particles stuck under the screen before?

https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-T400-T500-and-newer-T/T440-touchscreen-problems/td-p/3590887

 

For the non touch IPS display, is the LG LP140WF3(sp)(d1) one still the best because of less bleeding?

Is there an IPS touchscreen available for T440? Which one is best? Thank you.

T440p upgraded last year to AUO FHD IPS from a TN 1366x786 pixels. No need to change video cable.

But what about upgrading from FHD to WQHD? QWHD uses 4 lane instead of 2, and the cable is 40 pins instead of 30. Haven't heard success stories

There's some hand made boards that can make this possible using eDP - google it.  Most people use them for getting FHD on X220/X230.  Seems like more trouble than it's worth to me.

Re: T440s - LG or AUO Display

Chiming in VERY late to the party, but I wanted to drop my 2 cents on this issue. I bought a T440s for cheap off ricardo.ch and just replaced the LG screen with the one from AU Optronics 1) because of the spotlight effect and 2) because I hoped it would magically improve the image quality substantially.

 

The AUO panel delivered on 1) = spotlight effect gone, but not on 2). The LG panel is still a decent panel but the 80 Swiss franks (roughly 80 US $) I spent on obtaining the AUO panel were a waste of money. The expense and effort would have totally been warranted in case of a 900p TN panel, but there is not much to gain from going from the LG to the AUO panel.

If you can live with the spotlight effect (which actually didn't bother me until I found this thread, lel) leave it be and be happy about the decent (even in 2017) screen.
