Re: x120e - poor LCD quality/viewing angles

Why didn't I see any mention of how horrible the display is in one of the 10 In-depth product reviews I read for the sole purpose of avoiding disappointments like this.

Here’s an example from
The 11.6-inch, 1366 x 768-pixel matte display produced colorful images and strong viewing angles. We still saw a sharp and relatively bright image of the desktop at 90 degrees to the left or right of center.

Well, there two different panels that are being used in th x120e, a Samsung LTN116AT01-401 (better) and an LG LP116WH1-TLB1 (worse).


It could be the review sites were sent units with the better panels as I'm sure Lenovo is aware that ones is better than the other.


Look here for more info.

Re: x120e - poor LCD quality/viewing angles

The Samsung panel in my X100e looks really good... Maybe consider a panel swap?

Re: x120e - poor LCD quality/viewing angles

Mine says:
Monitor Name ThinkPad Display 1366x768 [NoDB]
Monitor ID – LEN40D1
Manufacturer B116XW02 V1

Is it Samsung, LG or different?
