Hello Mark and everyone,
I’ve been following this thread for a while. Received my T61p 6459CTO on May 12, couldn’t stand the LCD, and found this board.
My display is a Samsung 15.4-inch WUXGA with Mfg part # 42T0407. It’s terrible comparing to my old T42p UXGA IPS display. I filed a complaint on May 20, and had called the tech support on May 24 for the box coming on May 27. I specified an LG replacement. If the LG panel has similar quality, I would definitely ask for a full refund.
Mark, how long would it take if I send my laptop to you? I would need a fully functional laptop in two weeks. If not from Lenovo, I’m now seriously considering Fujitsu, Toshiba, or a Dell. I may have too high expectation on the T61 LCD display and the quality of my LCD panel is among the average though. Would PM you my customer #, serial #, and case # if you think it worth a try. You may assign me a new case number and I still ship out my laptop on May 27 but different destination?

You may download a free software - PC wizard 2008. It will show up the monitor information.
My 15.4 inch WUXGA (42T0407) is Samsung LTN154U2-L05.
Wondering anyone who get LG-Philips LP154WU1 is complaining here....Patrick

hm. i've noticed that my eyes do get pretty tired fast - i thought it was simply being sleepy, but maybe the LCD could be the reason why my eyes die so fast. the strange thing is that i believe i have one of the better LCDs in comparison to other t61/p owners
I'm beginning to think I may have one of the worst case 15.4 1680 displays here.
I've turned down brightness seven notches, and it's still bad enough that my eyes are shot after 30 minutes. Past that, it is completely unusable. As it is, at 7, using the TPFLX profile, I can barely read some icon titles. White is gray, black is still dark gray in the lower half but indistingisuhable from the chassis at the top center. So I end up with nearly unreadable, or take it up a notch or two and find it painfully bright. No matter what I do, I can't seem to get this display to a comfortable balance.
