    I have to agree with Wally33, the optical output of the 3820TG is working just fine and is way better then the analog output.

    Yeah, I'm interested in this display as well. Wonder if the 13.3 inch screen can be swapped into the 3820tg. I'd gladly take any screen with better angles and contrast than the stock 3820tg screen. Only thing is, with a 1600*1200 native resolution, games are going to take a noticeable performance hit.

    The "lag" freezes were discussed a lot in the past and the few of us who had it swapped HDDs and that seems to work for us.

    I doubt that many 3820tg owners will be buying a UX31 since it lacks a dedicated gpu or a way to add an external solution. I would expect some to buy the lg p330 if they ever release it.

    The UX31's resolution is 1600x900 (16:9 aspect ratio) and I don't think that the 3820TG supports resolutions above 1440x900 (16:10 aspect ratio) resolution, which ironically wouldn't fit in the case.

    Hence we're stuck with the 1366×768 (16:9 aspect ratio, approx.).

    Thanks a lot. Crappy Acer support told me 3820TG has coaxial S/PDIF. Will order a converter. Looks like 3820TG uses optical S/PDIF but 1410 uses coaxial S/PDIF. I made 1410 works with coaixal S/PDIF but I forgot how I did.

    Still, a 13.3" IPS, 350 nits, higher contrast, matt display panel would be nice, even if it is 1366x768. Has anyone looked into the Lenovo X1 panel. It is still TN, but it is quite thin, very bright and has decent contrast. It only lacks non-glare surface.

    Of course, it would be beautiful! I would love to see it happen, just wonder if anybody has the balls.

    Plenty of balls around ... it's the brains that are the problem. The conversion is prohibitively expensive. A factory made Lenovo X1 replacement display panel is $991.:eek: NEW A+ LENOVO 27R2439 13.3" WXGA LED LCD SCREEN DISPLAY | eBay I was afraid that the price would be insane. That is $200 more than I paid for my computer. I can get a complete X1 for less than that from the outlet and just add external graphics.
