    Hey everybody. I just bought a Lenovo Y520 with 60 hz IPS panel. The model is this one. This panel is horrible in fact of color accurate and max brightness like tests of the notebook can confirm. I want to upgrade the panel with one that has a better color accurate and a higher max brightness. I dont really care about hz so i would be fine with an 60 hz panel but it should not be too slow because i want to play games on it. I found this panel:
    AUO B156HAN04.2, which specs sounds very fine. Does that work in my case? Does it technically make problems that the original panel has only 6bit color depth and the new one 8?

    If you download HWINFO it will spit out the current screen so you can do a side by side comparison on https://panelook.com/ to verify they're compatible in size / connector / electrical

    i made exactly that and it seems like identical in case of size/connector and electrical (3,3v) but maybe there is more to consider like color bit depth of the panel and hz? Someone mentioned that the brightness keys of the keyboard could not work after a panel change.

    There's a ton of variables from bios / cable / panel / voltage and so on.

    Give it a shot then to see how it performs and go from there. If it doesn't work then returns can be a pain depending on where you're buying from. if it does work then you're good to go.

    CN isn't always a bad situation.... I bought "locally" and ended up returning them because they weren't exact models I had ordered. Ended up going through CN and got the panel / cable I needed in a single transaction.

    I went through 3 different options total.

    1. sent a compatible model - returned
    2. didn't actually have it in stock = refunded
    3. confirmed everything and tracked down the edp cable I needed as well
