    I have to partially withdraw my hopes. The owner replied to me that 'it’s a 4K 60hz panel, not 120hz like the 03.3. Thickness is similar to the 03.3, the port is on the bottom middle'.
    I was hoping it could be 120Hz.
    As for the pictures, you can see them here, post on the top:

    Hey, would you mind sharing the desktop wallpaper you have showing in the OP? It's dope.

    Did you see the link I posted above? According to the user in this forum who owns the panel, it is miniLed yes, but not 120Hz. So I guess your B173ZAN03.3 is still far better

    Mini LED is totally different technology. It is the future for me. As much as i researched B173ZAN05.0 is 144hz panel but even if its not, mini led have far more better quality then any backlit display. So i am willing to take the risk and try it. will post about my experience.

    I have spotted the same specifications on the few sites which report about the B173ZAN05.0, but when I contacted the owner, he told me it's 60Hz. No reason to think he's a liar, he posted the pictures.
    Talking about image quality, you are right, but most of the people here owning the A51-M look for fast screen for gaming.
    Anyway, I will search for more info before buying.
    Btw, a few days ago I contacted the seller in this link and he told me he had in stock:

    Speaking of 60 Hz panels:

    I ordered a B156ZAN05.0 from ebay seller neidersch* and got a B156ZAN03.2 with the stickers peeled off and replaced with a B156ZAN05.0 sticker.

    I will say though the B156ZAN03.2 is still much better than my Sharp and Samsung screens. Astounding color, contrast, and brightness, but not 120 Hz. Connector matches Samsung connector.

    So yeah, who knows how many of these 120 Hz panels really exist and how many are scams.
