    Hi,

    I'm looking for a better LCD panel for my Zbook 15 G2. It currently has a not-so-great TN 1080p panel but I wanna upgrade to a nicer one as I'm wanting something with better colour coverage for my needs.

    Has anyone tried a 120Hz panel and would it work at all? The model I'm looking at is a "
    B156HAN04.5. And from the pictures of the Zbook I have, the mounting holes look the same and it's the same 30pin eDP.

    EDIT: The current panel is a CMN15C2... That's apparently LVDS but is it? HWiNFO64 tells me the Digital Video Interface Standard Supported: DisplayPort.

    Does that mean LVDS or eDP?

    Thanks.

    I tried a touch screen on the 17 g4. It was generic but didnt come with the 120 it was only 60 how ever I was able to over clock it with nvidia panel to 110

    I'm not really aiming for a higher refresh rate, as I'm just looking for a panel with better accuracy, and the benefit of IPS.

    I ran into a snag meaning I don't know if I need an eDP cable, as the one in the unit is using LVDS. I'm not sure if it's interchangeable. If it is and someone knows this, I'd be grateful.
