    I know this one is 1080, but it had been misquoted several times. And cutting out the E2E is an ugly process and obviously does away with ones warranty

    I would go the experiment route myself if it bothered me that much.

    Thanks for finding this data sheet. Can someone with more experience in these things perhaps indicate (or guesstimate) where this screen would come in terms of quality then?

    I have an M1730 at present. Whilst the colours are by no means superbly accurate, it is a screen I can happily stare at all day. Is it possible to compare with this?

    The above panel does not match the pixel pitch specified in the M18x user manual (M18x manual = 0.2550mm, this one 0.213mm)

    I'm trying to get the specs on this model: Samsung LTN184HT02-S01

    Also trying to figure out the model number of the 18.4 panels displayed here http://www.samsung.com/global/business/lcdpanel/product/note.html
    The second 18.4 panel from the 16:9 table looks really good in terms of specs.

    You're right, though there are several revisions of this model, let's continue digging.

    As for the Samsung LTN184HT02-S01, there's a total havoc, some websites indicate LED backlight while others state CCFL.

    Back to square 1...

    I think these are the specs of the display:

    Samsung Enterprise Portal mySingle

    Also some more specs here:

    SAMSUNG's Digital World

    Still no match with the M18x manual.

    Also, what happened to the Samsung LTN184HT02 (RGB LED)-112% Color Gamut/ 1000:1 Contrast Ratio/Maximum Brightness: 250:1 that is used in the Sony AW models? Did Sony put a flag on it and said "MINE"?
