About week ago I damaged my Vega messing about inside it. I thought I had damaged the LCD as the tablet boots up and outputs to HDMI but the LCD doesn’t work. It doesn’t even light up, even when I am using Nvflash to install a rom. So I ordered a replacement off eBay (£38 inc. delivery). The advert said M101NWT and didn’t mention that is would be a compatible patent unit. Of course it was a compatible part not the original and to top it off it didn’t work, or didn’t work with my motherboard.
The model number is KL28E and the manufacturer is YP Optoelectronics LTD. Here is a photo.
I cant find any info on the manufacturer or the model number on Google.
I contacted the seller and asked him to confirm that it was compatible (and complain a bit). They apologised and confirmed that it was tested before dispatch and it should work with the Vega. They offered me a 10% refund or a full refund if it wasn’t up to scratch (quality wise) and I wanted to return it but they where unable to give me any technical data such as viewing angles or response time. I was going to send it back unless it was better than the standard one (it can’t be any worse) but at the moment I can’t find any details about the model or the manufacturer. It looks good quality and has exactly the same dimensions (including depth) as the M101NWT2. The sticker on it says “compatible with: B101AW02, B101AW06, LTN101NT05, CLAA101NB03A, LP101WH2 and N101L6-L0D.
Thinking I could find out more about the KL28E that I did a little searching on Google for the technical specs of the models listed. This is the Data I have been able to gather.
Size : 10.1
Brightness : 170
Resolution : 1024*600
View Angle : 45*45*15*35
Backlight : LED
Pixel : WSVGA
Contrast Raio : 300
Connector : LVDS
Response Time : 16 Ms
Pixels H x V 1024x 600x 3(RGB)
White Luminance (ILED=20mA)
(Note: ILED is LED current)
[cd/m2] 200 typ. (5 points average)
170 min. (5 pContrast Ratio 400 typ
Response Time [ms] 16 typ / 25 Maxoints average)
Viewing Angle 45/45/15/35
Viewing angle: 40/40/10/30

Transmissive Mode Normally white - -
Surface Treatment Hard coating (3H), Glare - -
Luminance, White 200 Cd/m
Viewing angle 45/45/20/45
Here are the basic specs of the M101NWT2
Contrast ratio : 500:1
Luminance : 200 Cd/m2
Viewing angle : 45/45/15/35
So they are all very similar compared to the M101NWT2 except for Samsung LP101WH2 which has a greater viewing angle, slightly better luminance and higher resolution. So in theory the mystery LCD I have may be as good as the Samsung one. It’s wishful thinking I know but as Dwane Dibbly says “you never know”. I am not really thinking about using the higher resolution but the increased viewing angle would be nice. Even if its not as good as the Samsung its logical that the Samsung LP101WH2 may work with the Vega.
Unfortunately as my motherboard seems to be faulty I am unable to test the KL28E for now but will give an update as soon as I can find a replacement mobo to try it with.
