    I got a cracked display in my Clevo X170SM-G laptop and I am currently looking for a replacement of an exact same display or a possible upgrade. My currently installed (and cracked) display is LP173WFG-SPB1 aka LGD0615, as shown in my device manager.

    https://www.panelook.com/LP173WFG-SPB1_LG Display_17.3_LCM_parameter_44065.html

    It's a full HD 144 Hz G-Sync display. I figured that since I need to pay the full price for a new display anyway why not try to upgrade to a 240 Hz or 300 Hz variant, however I can't seem to find a straight answer as to which exact models are applicable for my laptop.

    https://www.panelook.com/modeldetail.php?id=44168

    I found this one in the comments of some YouTube video and I would like to know if this will fit properly or not, or perhaps are there some other options which I am not aware of?

    Fist couple of things you want to look at are the size

    389.89(H) × 238.31(V)

    With that you can dig into the list of panels and figure out your options.

    Your current display is 40 pin which works in your favor as there are more options w/ less hassle. 0.5mm pin pitch is most common as well.

    240/300hz displays are overkill 99.99% of the time and not worth the cost.

    144hz is where you're at currently which is optimal in most cases if you're a casual user or gaming.

    The next thing to consider is since you're going through the process do you want to shift to 4K? Same price / more pixels but... 60hz instead of 144/120hz.

    https://www.panelook.com/sizmodlist.php?st=E20&pl=&so_attr=&sizes[]=1730&st=E20&by=desc&page=2 - lists 24 models that would fit physically (2 x 4K)

    There are a couple of them @ 240/300

    I would probably narrow it down to:

    120HZ
    NV173FHM-NY1
    ADS 1920×1080 300 1200:1 16.7M 389.89×238.012 eDP 144Hz [​IMG] 5 4594

    IPS 1920×1080 300 800:1 16.7M 389.89×238.31 eDP 144Hz [​IMG] 2 0

    240HZ
    B173HAN05.0
    AHVA 1920×1080 300 1000:1 16.7M 389.89×238.31 eDP 240Hz [​IMG] 2 5028

    300HZ
    B173HAN05.1
    AHVA 1920×1080 300 1000:1 16.7M 389.89×238.31 eDP 300Hz [​IMG] 2 2100

    They all look to be 300 nits for brightness, the top 3 120hz panels have higher contrast ratios, and the 240/300hz panels are about the same.

    4K options:
    B173ZAN03.0
    AHVA 3840×2160 400 1200:1 16.7M 389.89×238.31 eDP 60Hz [​IMG] 0 0
    B173ZAN03.2
    AHVA 3840×2160 470 1200:1 1.07B 389.89×238.31 eDP 60Hz [​IMG] 1 0

    I would probably go with the 3.2 model for the higher brightness just because if you enable HDR it basically cuts the brightness in half and it has a higher color pallet as well with 1.07Billion.

    Be aware of the replacement screen as you need to have screen with is supported by the bios to have GSYNC. So identical is needed in order not to loose gsync. If you do not want gsync, you can upgrade to 300hz screen w/o any issue.

    The usual exception is if a screen was available from your reseller as an option at the time of purchase. Then you know it's also on the white list for sure.

    You can buy it off taobao, ask for a A+ screen from any seller, prices are decent and its pretty easy to replace the screen, prices should be way less. They provide a 3 month or 6 month warranty against dead pixels as well. Depends on the seller and the price you are willing to pay. Have bought the B173ZAN03.3. 4K 120HZ and was perfect.

    Your kinda right, i have not seen a B173ZAN03.2 as an official offering from any re-seller. Though it works even on the p775tm-1 perfectly and enables the HDR option. It should work fine on the x170sm-g.
