Poor viewing angles
on April 12, 2013
Installing in a HP G62, the screen works. At first it seems like it might even be an improvement over the old screen but within 15 seconds I knew that the viewing angles are very poor on this monitor. That means that you have to have the monitor angle set to your eyes extremely precisely and even adjusting in your chair will make it change in appearance. If you use your computer for photos, Picasa, or even playing videos on the internet, this is not ideal.
All that said, I may be able to get some more miles out of my laptop before I have to get a new one.
Manufacturers should really include the viewing angles in the specifications.
I'm satisfied enough not to return the unit but I feel this important enough to mention so that consumers can make their own decision. No dead or stuck pixels that I can see.
One final note, the original panel was an LG, so that might be the one to replace. The original on my G62 had another problem - very poor dynamic range so pick your poison.
