Dell :: Bought Refurb Studio XPS 13 With CCFL. How Much Worse Is It Compared To LED?

Dec 6, 2009

I have an M1330 with LED and love the display. I came across such a good deal for a refurb Studio XPS 13 that i could not pass it up - (P8800, 4GB, 500GB 7200rpm, 512MB N10M-GS,

Wireless 1510, Bluetooth 370 for $875 shipped). Only problem is that it has a CCFL screen instead of LED.

Will the difference be really noticeable? Am i going to regret it?

Dell :: Studio 15 Compared To The XPS ?

Jan 27, 2009

I was originally going to purchase a Dell XPS but after browsing the website and watching some videos on the studio 15, then i made the switch.

I still haven't bought it yet, but another reason why i have chosen to get the studio 15 is because the XPS is a little out dated and does have some issues ......

Dell :: Studio Xps13 Compared To Studio Xps 16

Feb 15, 2009

Which one is better? I know the sxps 16 is better in terms of video & larger/better screen (e.g., performance & rgb led).

But, the sxps 13 is cheaper and better in weight (much lighter than the 16) and could be still perfect for anyone doing school works and even video editing and games .....

Dell :: Difference Between CCFL And LED Studio XPS 1340

Apr 22, 2009

I recently had my screen replaced by dell dispatch for my studio XPS 1340. My hinges were loose, instead of replacing just the hinges dell dispatch had replaced the whole screen. My question is can you tell a difference between CCFL and LED. My specs is LED I just want to make sure the technician, replace with the right screen. Is LED thinner than CCFL if so what is the technical spec of thickness between the two. Is there a way to check if you have a 1.3 or 2.0 webcam.

Dell :: Studio 1737 Screenis It LED Or CCFL?

May 19, 2009

A month ago I received my new laptop from Dell. After a short inspection I discovered that instead of 2 HDDs only one was appearing in device manager.

After a bios check that confirmed that only one HDD was installed I called Dell Support. The person allowed me to open the laptop and to my surprise there were 2 HDDs but one of them was not fixed with screws and it was able to move freely inside.

Those from Dell decided to replace my laptop and one week later I received a new one .....

Dell :: Exporting Newly Bought Studio 1555 Outside The US

Jul 30, 2009

I recently processed my custom studio 15 from the Dell US site the other day and since Dell USA does not ship outside of the US I decided to have it delivered to my sister in California...

from there I'll have it brought here in the Philippines when someone goes home.

My concern is: During the processing of my order I did not tick the option " I WILL EXPORT THIS OUTSIDE of the US".

Is there any difference if I did? I mean, will my order come with a permit to export or something if I did choose that option? Apparently I cannot reverse that. I'm not really familiar with US Customs or if they would allow new and boxed laptop to be exported out from the country.

Dell :: Bought Studio 1537 Motherboard And Replaced 1536

Apr 6, 2010

I have a 1536 that I thought had a dead motherboard. I bought a 1537 motherboard, T9600 CPU & a CPU fan & heatsink. Finally all the parts showed up & I got it installed. Unfortunatly all this new hardware & still same problem. When you turn it on the media lights flash on & then off & the DVD drive makes some noise. The display doesn't turn on & no HDD activity. I know the 4G of DDR2 is good & the HDD is good as I tested them in another laptop. Any help would be helpful. I would think that I would get some HDD activity ( noise & HDD light ) if the display was dead.

HP/Compaq :: Battery Life Worse After Format

Apr 29, 2009

Got a new laptop a few days back (6730b), which is alot nicer than the nx7400 i had. When i got it, it came with vista business and a whole load of 'bloatware' i didnt need. so i did as i normally do and formatted the pc and re-installed vista (although XP was very tempting). I finally got round to getting everything how i want it but i've realised since formatting the battery life seems to be less than it used to be....

before the format, when the battery was full it would say i had 4hrs+ of battery life (i even remember seeing it say 5hrs once). Now it says 2hr 30 mins on 'HP optimized', 2hr 45 on power save!

Dell :: M1530 Upgrade From CCFL To LED

May 2, 2009

I'm looking to buy a M1530 LED WXGA+ screen (1440x900). I currently have the stock 1280x800 CCFL. I have some question that I'm hoping some of you would be able to answer:

Will the LED screen fit normally within the stock CCFL backing/bezel?

I'm looking at screen descriptions, for the LED's I don't see "inverters" listed as included but in some, though not all CCFL have it mentioned in the description, is this something that's no longer required? or is it built into the panel?

What is a good price for these panels? The panel I'm looking at is a Glossy 1440x900 LED screen for $205CAD with shipping and taxes included. Good price? bad? Is it possible to get it cheaper?

Concerning batterylife, I have a 9cell and am averaging of 3.5-4hrs of usage with wifi on and screen in one level just before full brightness on Power save mode. Will I see a very noticable increase in battery life? I keep hearing people spout "30%" are there any actual tests?

Dell :: LCD: LED Vs CCFL BacklightingInfo Inside

Dec 7, 2008

I have been pondering whether my Studio 1537 came with a LED backlit screen since Dell didn't include a Centrino 2 sticker although all of my laptop hardware meets the req. for Centrino 2. Who knew what else Dell could pull?

I decided to fire up my Studio 1537, Inspiron E1505, and Mini 9 to do a comparison with the LCD backlight on full power with Notepad maximized (lots of white).

The E1505's LCD was about a year old and is CCFL. The Mini 9 and Studio 15 are brand new and both were advertised to have LED backlighting.

The E1505 looked dim and yellow compared to the Studio 15's CRISP white color, while the Mini 9 had an almost purple tint to the white screen. I work with white light a lot and can say the E1505's LG CCFL was around 4000-4300K for color temperature while the Studio 15 was more around 5800K and the Mini 9 at 6200K or slightly higher.

The problem with white LED's is that they have a shorter lifespan (~20,000 hours) compared to red, blue, and green (usually 100,000 hours). This translates to noticeable decrease in white light output after 2.3 years of non-stop 24/7 usage.

Another major difference I observed is that the CCFL at max brightness is equivalent to the LEDs at about 40-50% brightness!

Dell :: XPS 1330 LED & CCFL Motherboards Differences

Feb 16, 2009

There was a discussion on this subject before but I can't find it. Currently I own XPS 1330 with nVidia GPU and LED screen. My GPU died a while ago, was replaced.

After that I applied copper mod. But it will die some time in future again. So I'm thinking to replace my mobo with one that has integrated GPU.

Dell :: Upgrade From CCFL To LED LCD Screen (M1330)

Mar 9, 2010

I like repairing laptops as a hobby. I recently bought a M1330 laptop without a screen and with a small video card problem. The laptop still worked on external screen, but showed some lines.

This was due to the NVidia gpu problem. I managed to fix it by using a hot air soldering station(Youtube video). To decrease the chance that it arrises again, I also did the copper mod(description). This meant that I could finally use the laptop for my work if I could just install a LCD screen.

Since I have spend quite some time on repairing the laptop already, I decided to invest some additional money to upgrade from a CCFL to a LED backlit LCD. I ordered a new cover, screen and LED LCD cable.

When I assembled all the parts, everything fits perfectly .....

Apple :: Mac Graphics As Compared To PC Components

Jun 12, 2009

I'm looking at buying a new laptop, and I'm curious about one issue when comparing a MacBook Pro to any brand of high-end PC: the graphics.

In looking at PCs, each has a graphics card option in customization, namely the ATI Radeon 3870/4870 or the nVidia Geforce GTX 260m/280m. As Mac's don't support PC components, they do not have the same customizable option.

What exactly powers the graphic performance in a MacBook Pro and how does it compare to the aforementioned graphics cards found in high-end PCs?

Dell :: SXPS 13 LED Upgrade (after Order, Swap With CCFL)?

Sep 12, 2009

So dell replaced my m1330 with a SXPS 1340, but they did not have any LED ones available, so they sent a CCFL.

They agreed to swap it with the WLED screen. My question is, is the casing different for the CCFL and WLED like it is on the m1330? I know the LED casing is thinner on the m1330.

Dell :: XPS M1530 Slot Load Drive A Bit 'rough' Compared To IMac?

May 21, 2009

I like the slot load drive, I wouldn't want to go back to the traditional ones. However I've always thought it was a bit rough in the sense that you have to kind of force it in and it makes a lot of noise. Also when you eject it, it kind of 'spits' it out.

Dell :: XPS M1330 Screen Dim Even After Replacing CCFL Cable/I Board/Lamp

Sep 18, 2009

I have an XPS M1330 purchased about 2 years ago.

The screen went extremely dim permanently one day when the battery reached its near absolute low. For some reason the screen came back to a brightly lit life after a system restore. The same problem occurred again and sadly after sitting on it a few weeks I did not have a restore point old enough to troubleshoot with the same solution.

Now I'm not sure if system restore really had anything to do with the monitor crapping out because I've never heard of such a scenario, but I'm just going to throw it out there on the off chance that it does .....
