TN to IPS screen upgrade

Just did the screen upgrade to IPS and I have to say it, it was worth it. The upgrade itself was pretty straight forward but it was quite fiddley to the the extension cable to fit.

Nice. What is the resolution of the new IPS? Did you manager to get it higher than the original 1366x768?
The resolution is still the same but it make a big difference in terms of colour and viewing angles. The parts only cost me around £50 AliExpress. The model for the screen I used is LP116WH4 SL N2 B1. This was the recommended screen when I was researching this upgrade. Hope this anyone looking to upgrade. Also there were concerns about the people not being able to adjust the brightness on this panel but in my case it works just fine.
