Replacing Acer aspire 5 screen with 1080p panel

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

The module I want is the ryzen 5 4500u but it only comes with a 756p display and I was going to upgrade it with a screen for another Acer aspire 5, can I do this?

I think the physical connector type is different but considering the size of the screen is so small compared to a 24 inch desktop you should be just fine with the native resolution tbh

It uses a 30 pin eDP connector, so you should be able to upgrade.

768p on a 15" display is not very good, and I'm assuming this particular panel is TN with bad color reproduction. I'd recommend a swap if OP can fund it. 

768p on a 15 inch monitor is 102.73 PPI which isn't the worst you could do. It's usable.

Usable, but not nice IMO.

The main upgrade would probably be the color reproduction, though. (IPS if the Acer has a TN  panel right now.)

Yeah exactly would totally agree on that aspect of it

Why did they get rid of the 1080p display.  I just got an Aspire 5 Ryzen 3 with a 1080p 15" screen.

They don't have it for the ryzen 5 4500u version

In that case, since they have them already for that specific body, I would say it would be an easy swap and plug.  Well relative easy since you have to disassemble a ton and its thin plastic.

Ryzen 5 1080p panel from factory.

For the 4500u even Acer is only showing the Swift 3 and its an FHD display.  Try to find an Aspire 7 with the new 4000 series in it.  All these models advertise FHD displays.  Where is the listing you are finding that shows lower than FHD?

Finally found it.  Looking back I am pretty sure its a bad ad where the spec is listed wrong.  All of these new laptops come with 1080p panels, they cost about $5 to the manufacturer.  14" is where some cheap it out and put lower res screens.  I have not seen a sub 1080p 15" and up in a long while.
