    Hi Zhenya00,

    Did you check the production date of these AUO screens? my replacement was back in 2012, and was the .2 version. I am quite happy with the one they replaced for my T440p.

    A distributor on aliexpress sent me data sheets for the .1 and .2 models.

    The main difference I could tell is the weight and depth. The .1 is 20g heaver and 0.2mm thicker. Partially this is due to the glass being 0.1mm thicker.

    I have to decide whether this is likely to be an issue.

    No, i can't say I've been paying close attention to the production dates.

    Has anybody tried to buy the FRU directly from Lenovo? If you can buy the sticker bezel, why not the panel itself?

    I looked up the price once via their automated system. It was like $1100.

    Not sure why parts would have it but warranty wouldn't but who knows...

    I've ordered the B140HAN01.2, but I was able to discuss it with the seller and he agreed on sending that exact panel model. However, I've still not received it since the shipping using China Air Post can take up to 4 weeks when sending to Germany.

    Since there's a chance that I will get a LG panel for full hd ips screen, can I upgrade the default 1600x900 hd+ screen on my own? Is the connector for hd+ and full hd the same?

    I would think so. They replaced my IPS with 1600 x 900 HD+ by mistake. And the Lenovo sent somebody to replaced the HD+ screen back to IPS in front of my eye. I did not notice any connector issue.

    Ordered an AUO FHD display B140HAN01.2 and it arrived yesterday. I installed it immediately to replace the original LG display. Now the spotlight phenomenon is gone and I am very happy with my T440s.
