    Hands down the best panel I've ever used, colors are vibrant and 120hz is ideal.

    I wish I could over clock the refresh rate but it seems I have no breathing room there.

    120hz really is a deal breaker in terms of ever going back to 60hz again. After using it you just have to have it from that point forward :)

    The part number on the first link looks correct, N392W, but the second one does not match. It also looks like the whole bezel and everything which you don't need, only the LCD itself. If I remember correctly the m17Xr4 had something glued over the screen , so maybe that is why that is sold as a whole assembly. I would try laptopscreens.com for the right LCD. It would also be cheaper to get the cable through the first link and the screen through laptopscreens.

    thing is, if you buy from someone they should support the sale, so if you have issues just contact them.
    They might ask you if you need a cable, and they might check what videocard etc.. I know I would

    I wish I had seen this thread a month earlier. I ordered the FHD screen from Dell 2 years ago and then lost the nerve to install it until last December. Dell assured me when I bought the display that I only needed to swap the displays and all would be good. No mention of the different cable. Needless to say, I bricked my baby when I put in the new display and the old cable. I called Dell Support and paid $259.00 to fix a 4 year old laptop. I shipped it off and didn't get it back for 50 days! Dell made 6 major frak ups and 5 minor errors on my repair but that's a story for another day. Dell got the motherboard running but didn't notice the old cable connecting to the FHD display and thus, didn't get the display going. They refunded the fee, shipped it back and I put the original display back in and was back in business an hour later.

    My question is: Did I brick the FHD display when I bricked the motherboard? Could I cause harm to the computer if I get the ON392W cable and try this again? Any other way to test the FHD display?

    @t456 can probably give you an answer on this.
