    I own the lenovo y5070 UHD non - touch screen version . Im an fps gamer ( mainly csgo ) so the 48hz limit of the stock panel is really killing me .

    I was wondering if it is possible to replace that monitor with a FHD monitor with more than 60 hz display for smooth gameplay . i would really like to know if that i possible .

    I think you received a TN panel instead of an IPS one. Check the operating mode in the overview section : http://www.panelook.com/B156HW01 V4_AUO_15.6_LCM_overview_686.html. You should return it and ask for a B156HAN01.2 only.

    Hey everyone! Thanks to your help I changed my TN screen to an IPS one. It's way better! I got the B156HAN01.1 from laptopscreen.com. It has good colors but it lacks a bit in brightness. So far no problems, aside from 2 stuck pixels and a little bit of light leaking on the bottom left. It's not too noticeable though and I can live with that. Colors seem good. Apparently it covers the full sRGB range according to this test I did: https://www.damiensymonds.net/2010/04/check-your-monitors-gamut.html. I will test with a spectrometer when I get one. Also, my laptop is not a Y50 but a Lenovo W540. So if anyone with a W540 wants to change their screen, here is my tutorial:



    Cheers,

    Emil

    If you could tell us the Country you live in, others might be able to help.
