Upgrading laptop screen TN to IPS?

Finding a screen isnt a problem, they make them specifically for this model. With the correct connections and sizing.

Just wasn't sure if there is another limiting factor, and also not sure about the general quality of these ips screen.

However i figure most any ips is better than this poor TN.

IPS is a patent of LG so any screen that says IPS is going to made exclusively by LG (one of the top panel manufacturers in the word) so quality isn't an issue if its new. You can always lookup the panel on panelook to make sure it's genuine. 

 

If it's LVDS than it's going to compatible electronically. They're just universal mobile displays (pretty much every laptop has universal screen), the site seems to sort what panels are compatible.

Hello LTT Community,

 

I recently purchased an Asus x555ub-nh51 laptop.

 i5 6200U w/ 940m which I got at a solid price.

Ive been upgrading what i could, switched optical drive for caddy

and added ssd to drive slot, hdd to caddy.

Runs like a dream now but this TN panel color accuracy is terrible.

So i was wondering if anyone had experience switching to an

ips display on this computer series.

There are ips screens available for my laptop just not sure if because

my system has a TN originally is it limited in some way.

Also are IPS displays more power hungry than TNs?, 

that could effect my choice if whether the upgrade is worthwhile.

 

Thanks for any info!

The panel size and the bezel size is what's important take it out and measure it then find a like size IPS panel. Just make sure the new panel has a LVDS connection.

Power consumption is likely so close it won't matter. They build the drivers to handle a lot more than what they need.

btw make sure that your current panel use a LVDS conection, other modern

conectors today are 30pin eDP or 40pin eDP not any laptop use LVDS
