    I doubt that laptopscreen already have that screen. Which model did you look at? Do you know the price of that screen?

    Note that the HP Envy 14 Spectre and Alienware M14x also had decent 14" 1600x900 TN panels.

    The Alienware is listed as 12"x7.4" on laptopscreens, same as the T420, so those might work, assuming the right connector. I can't find info on the HP. I'm getting vague references to the Alienware screen being 300nits, so that's an improvement, but this anandtech review isn't encouraging.

    I found the LP140WD2(TL)(D3) on laptopscreens (compare to the X1Carbon's LP140WD2 (TL)(E2), which I did find listed here). $55-60 pre-tax-&-shipping. This website lists the (D3) contrast ratio as 700:1 at 270nits which almost matches the X1Carbon's 700:1, 300 nits.

    I think I might wait until the LP140WD2 (TL)(E2) shows up at laptopscreens, or give the D3 a try. The E2 has better contrast and gamut than the Alienware, at the same brightness.

    They are not the same, or "close." Two screens in the same series can differ significantly.

    That's why I'm not sure if I want to buy the D3 now, or wait for the E2 to hit laptopscreens. The other sources for the E2 appear to be wholesalers, but I could be wrong. Probably be happier if I wait judging by that laptopreviews comparison.

    I'd rather wait to know more about the E2 in reality and then buy the exact, genuine LG part if I do decide to make a replacement.

    I found that:
    LG Philips LP140WD2 (TL)(E2) LCD Screen, Call for Pricing

    Is this the correct screen? One note of caution: it seems that this seller (and maybe laptopscreen too) may also sell refurbished units. Better make sure that what you get is a brand new display.

    edit: this display is actually listed by many online sellers so it should be (soon) available. Prices are upon request.

    ^^^ Hmm, I suppose everyone else on this thread has come across that page.

    The actual concern is not about "refurbished vs. brand new" but about "compatible vs. genuine."

    It is the same model number as the one installed on the X1 and apparently that screen and the HD+ screen of the T430 use the same connector. What could make these "incompatible"?

    As for refurbished vs brand new, I'd never go for a refurbished unit from those online sellers...

    Obviously, you don't understand what a "compatible screen" means. (I never mentioned the X1 Carbon nor the T430.)

    Anyway...
