How to install a Pixel Qi 3Qi display on your netbook

Posted on Tuesday, July 20 2010 @ 02:25:31 CEST by

Engadget published a guide on how to install a Pixel Qi 3Qi display on your netbook, you can read it over here. This 10.1" display is available for $275, it's quite expensive but it can give you over an hour extra battery life if you aren't using the backlight mode.
No, the 3Qi display still isn't shipping in any commercially available products, but Pixel Qi is at long last offering a $275 10.1-inch screen replacement kit for netbooks through MakerShed. Needless to say, we jumped -- nay, leaped -- at the chance to finally get the display into our laboratories, roll up our sleeves and get to crankin'. That's right, we got out the screwdriver, wrangled up an old Lenovo IdeaPad S10-2 netbook and swapped in the 3Qi display for Lenovo's glossy panel. You're surely sitting on a metric ton of questions. Was it hard to swap out? Has the screen been everything we've ever fantasized about and more? Is it really 80 percent more power efficient than standard LCDs? We've got plenty of answers as well as a step-by-step how-to after the break..
