    I'm just glad you had the knowledge to figure it out. I detest selling on ebay. I have had more returns for "broken" brand new laptops than it seems is possible. I also dislike that ebay gives them a month to mess around with the laptop before returning it...

    Actually that's possibile... as long as the screen uses same link type and has same connector the screen size doesn't matter, i've done this multiple times when diagnosing my alienwares.

    That is partially true. I have tried an AW 18 screen that has the same connector on the M18X R2 and it didn't work at all.

    For all we know, we don't even know what model the 15" screen was used. For the record, no one has even tried a smaller screen on the M18X R2, so basically there is no argument there.

    If you look at the videos and screenshot , regardless of screensize you can see it's a scam. The LCD cable that he is saying is working runs off the screen it doesn't even connect to the m18x / r2's LCD connector block.

    With regards to the m15x vs m18x - they don't use the same connector type either and the LCD cables are different

    I am going to name and shame the guy too, i have no doubt he is probably on here somehwhere...

    I'm OK with naming the eBay account, but not personal name and email address.

    We leave that kind of stuff to the tabloids :D
