I'd appreciate some opinions , on something I can't make my mind on last year I purchased a refurbished Asus ROG GL552vw - mainly for programming and the occasional gaming with m960 - if I have time, maybe play a little hitman or kerbal space program.
I loved the machine, I upgraded the 128 SSD to 500 GB samsung SSD , it's been really fast however I suspected that it had been shipped with a TN panel - which in the reviews was pretty horrible - but it didn't bother me much
Recently, I've joined another company, and I've been given a macbook pro to work on, but I still use the GL552vw to work on my other projects at home now the screen difference is just too great, whenever I jump from the macbook to Asus GL552vw, it looks really bad - to the point It's getting very distracting, because I switch back and forth and I've come to realise screen on it is just horrible
considering my options , I don't want to buy another machine so soon
so I'm looking at screen replacements - I know that some models on GL552vw shipped with IPS Matte display (as can be found in various specs and reviews)
I've looked at some for sale, but the manufacturer is never really mentioned -I'm considering getting the screen replacement, as I love the machine - it's much faster in compiling and runs much more silent than the macbook pro - the screen is becoming a huge let down
suggestions if any panel (15.6" FHD, SLIM -30 pin with the correct connector position) will work with this ? or if anyone knows any good screen model number ? (prefer IPS glossy) I know Chen Mei makes good ones but I can't find anyone listing the manufacturer for the screens
