X1 Carbon Display Replacement

I don't really like the display on my X1 Carbon. Even though it's fairly high res (1600x900) I can still see individual pixels. I've also removed the film and screen door effect, which noticeably improved colors, but the vieweing angles are still mediocre at best.


Having said that, I was wondering if anyone else was looking to replace their display with the new 2014 2560x1440 display. The viewing angles and colors are supposed to be magnificent, and the pixel density sounds extremely impressive.


Can anyone comment on this? Is it possible?

Re: X1 Carbon Display Replacement

The X1 Carbon gen 1 uses LVDS display connection, and the new X1 Carbon gen 2 uses eDP connection. So even if everything else fits, the connection will need to be heavily modified (and no one has done so yet).

Re: X1 Carbon Display Replacement

does not need heavy modification if connected to the regular (external) displayport.


I actually like to do that too, putting a 2560x1440 into my old T410s. If someone knows/sells the 2560x1400 display, please let me know.
