X201 12" WXGA display contrast ratio specs

Inadequate quality of displays in "new" Lenovo ThinkPads (post T60) is well-known problem. The Lenovo tabook.pdf file specifies contrast ratio 250:1 for X201 12" WXGA models (page 149).


Recent NotebookCheck review has revealed real measured contrast ratio 126:1 only.


Yes, customers can tolerate few percent difference here and there but this is almost half of the specified value only.

ThinkPad (1992 - 2012): R51, X31, X220, Tablet 8.

I wonder if that is why my replacement X201 has a LG display while the original had a Samsung display... I think the LG looks better.
