Replacing the screenOk, so I just got a Z71V (the 1680x1050), like everything about it - except the screen sparkle and the offwhite - whites. I think they are getting away with this as it's a gaming laptop. Anyway, I decided to try to replace the screen. I opened up my the machine (not easy to get to the actual panel). The panel is apparently a LG LP154W02 - specs :
I found what I think (hope!) should be a drop in replacement in a Samsung. Notice that it has a higher contrast ratio, as well as it I have not heard of it having the sparkle problems :
I have overnighted one to myself. Provided I can get it installed, and there is interest, I will post my results.
