Screen upgrade on Omen 15-ax204ns

Omen 15-ax204ns
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi I have an Omen 15-ax204ns, and I was wondering if anyone has swapped the lackluster 1080p panel out for the 4k one. I realize it would void any warranty, and I don't care, and I also realize I have a GTX 1050, but it's more about peak brightness which the 1080p panel LACKS, while watching Netflix and consuming content. Any help would be great, I spotted a panel on some random website some time ago, but I'm also considering just buying another laptop. Let me know if you have any ideas. Thanks

Hello @jamesbond2285 

 

That series of Omen did come with a 4K panel on "select" models. But the issue is if the pin-out will work.  

The 1080 panel 752920-014  240 nits (according to the model number I cross referenced) uses a 30 pin connector.

The 4K panel 842484-004  300 nits uses a 40 pin connector.

You would have no way of converting it. The motherboard has to be wired for that connector.

 

I suggest if you need a 4K panel or brighter screen, I would look into getting a different laptop.
