Which Screen to Choose (wuxga, wxga, wsga++, etc.)

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Original PosterOP

I am in the middle of having to replace the screen on my laptop/notebook computer and I'm having difficulty understanding the different screen types and I want to make sure that I get the best bang for the buck.  My machine is an Acer Aspire 7741G-6426 and the screen is an LP173WD1 Glossy.

 

The problem comes in when reading the descriptions, there are WUXGA, WXGA, WXGA++, HD, HD+, HD Matte, HD Glossy.

 

Of course I want the 1600x600, but then my confusion comes in when trying to understand the other stuff as mentioned in the above statement.  I did some google searching but still didn't understand the difference between all of them.  IMHO, I think the glossy is far better looking than the matte but what about the other stuff?  Can someone with more knowledge and understanding of the above please help me out?  Many thanks to all that reply.

WUXGA, WXGA, WXGA++, HD, HD+ are all resolutions. ignore this if you're more familiar with pixel count. 

 

you shouldn't have that many screen options. most laptops only have one or two screen part numbers. you should do a direct replacement of your screen part number. 

do you have a link to the page you see all of this info on?

Here is the page with the things I was talking about.  I know what 1600x900 is, but just not up-to-snuff with all that other information.  Since my son sat in my machine, he gets to pay for it out of his "virus" money.

WXGA++ is just 1600x900

XGA, WXGA, WXGA+ are all just resolutions. 

 

i'd pick that amazon recommendation after you read the reviews or the first one by bightfocal.

 

his virus money? you mean the american stimulus checks?

Thanks to all, I think I have it figured out which one to get.  Just got to keep an eye on the (TL)(A1) thing.  Will order it in the morning along with a new keyboard for my desktop machine.
