E540 screen resolution is so bad

2014-10-04, 22:21 PM


I have bought recenlty Thinkpad E540, but the problem is that I can see vertical lines of pixels, the screen is look like a fabric texture, I have replaced the laptop by another one and the problem is the same. I assume that HD screen should be more clear that what I see.


Does any body notice this problem?


and What is the solution?

I have the same problem. Screen door effect on my E540 HD screen. Currently looking for options to replace it with a screen (from a different manufacturer) that doesn't have this problem. I've only had the laptop for 2 days, but I'm completely convinced (from reading about other people's experiences with sceen door effect on Lenovo laptops -- primarily the X1) that Lenovo wouldn't do anything about it. It's just a poor quality screen to save on cost, I guess.


So I guess my question is if anybody knows if there are any screens available for this model that are of better quality and don't have this screen door effect? And if so, what model numbers and such should I be looking for when getting a new screen?

Worst Lenovo Screen Resolution in my 10 years of Using ThinkPad.


LENOVO!!!  What were you thinking?


After spending nearly $1,000 on this laptop, I'm ready to throw it in the trash because the screen resolution is causing me to squint.  It's like looking through a screen door, through saran wrap, underwater.  I'm actually seeing pixels. 


What did you do? Decide to go back to the screen resolution of the Apple Mac from the 1990s?


It's horrible.  Absolutely, positively HORRIBLE.


What the heck am I supposed to do?  Clear type?  Not on this machine..
