    Hey all,

    My refurbished 7567 just arrived. It was listed as having an IPS panel on the outlet site. I pulled off the bezel and checked the model number:

    LP156WF6 SP M3

    Is this an actual IPS panel? I've googled the model number with and without () around the SP and M3 and can't find a definitive answer. The site below says IPS, but it looks a little janky and I don't have anything to cross reference it with:

    To my knowledge all of the LP156WF6-SPXX panels are IPS panels. It's just that some are of much higher quality than others.

    You can easily tell if it's a TN or IPS panel. Simply tilt the screen away from you. If you eventually get colour inversion (where the screen starts to go very dark) it's a TN panel. See this review's section on display panels to get an idea of what I mean by that.

    If you're screen doesn't look like that when you tilt it away from you, it's an IPS panel.

    Thanks. I don't get color inversion so I guess it's IPS. The panel is pretty decent but not amazing by any means. A bit of color tweaking in the Intel settings has improved it a bit from it's out of the box state.

    At this price point, you simply can't expect a good display panel. A good panel, like the LP156WF6-SPB1 costs over $100 - just for the panel.

    Would that panel swap in if I wanted to upgrade down the road? It would be an easy swap provided the panel was compatible.
