X121e, LCD

2011-10-19, 17:26 PM

Hi there all,

this is my first post as for the first time I own a "ThinkPad". This is so cool device. I love color, keyboard,slim design etc. But as we all know nothing is perfect and no exception here - which is horrible TN display I got with in my laptop. Its just a disaster!!! I can't see any other people's posts about it, maybe I am different here.

I checked my system with HWINFO 64 and it gave me some information about LCD I have:

model: LEN40D1

Monitor Name  B116XW03 V1

From this monitor my eyes are stinging from 30 minis of use. I can notice very well some vertical line across the whole screen. Colors and contrast are awful not to mention viewing angles. I also user 10 incher asus 1005p which has far more better LCD and its a netbook!

I would like to ask a question here: HOW this is possible that lenovo is installing such a crap TN RUBBISH in this laptop. its is such a nice device that i really like but unfortunately I am after creating RMA for return. Very disappointed with the product :(((((

Can anyone share my opinion?

 

Thanks

L.

I don't think Lenovo will do it. Generally, they swap same for same.

W520: 2960XM, Q2000M @ 1091/1380, 32GB RAM, 500GB&750GB HDD & 500GB SSD, FHD&MB168B+
X61T: L7500, 4GB RAM, 500GB HDD, XGA screen, Ultrabase
W550s: 5600U, K620M at 1164/1281, 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD, 3K touchscreen
X200s: SL9400, 6GB RAM, 64GB SD card, WXGA+ screen

The x121e Hardware Maintenance Manual only lists one type of panel, which FRU # is 04W1594. It seems to be an AUO panel.

The Samsung panel (LTN116AT01-401) is for x120e, but apparently not listed for the x121e.
There's also a LG panel (LP116WH1-TLB1), but for the 120e also.

I found no x121e part number for the Samsung one... did you found it blokemq?
