?

Would upgrade to Innolux-Chimei 120Hz/5ms 8bit color 40pin Matte panel?

  1. Yes!!! I want the N173HHE-G32 120Hz panel! Finally I don't need anything else from a laptop!

    88.9%
  2. I'm just alright with my 5 year old 6bit TrueLife Glossy display.

    5.6%
  3. Nahh I don't even need 120Hz, I'm just fine with factory stock 60Hz matte panel.

    fn+f5 wont work, no Alienware OSD, no Realtek card reader since I moved to winX. Its also currently in legacy, non uefi mode, so that could also be it, I dont know. Gonna change that soon.

    The correct part number should be listed in the 120hz upgrade thread by mogrules

    Okay thx. im going to find that thread
    Edit:
    So if you're talking about that thread
    http://forum.notebookreview.com/threads/120hz-3d-screen-upgrade-for-alienware-17-r1.758711/

    The part number was N392W and its the same part which i just listed (DC02C004000) its for 3D. Also he was upgrading with different LCD panel. Im trying to get eDP cable for N173HHE-G32 rev.C1 40 pin non touch. Anyone knows the correct part number?

    The one we used is one in the same. You simply dont install the 3D emitter and its a standard 120hz panel. This is the case with my own installation of the N173HHE-G32 as well.
