Anyone knows where to buy original Lenovo LCD panel for T495s? I bought one online via ebay but it is not original even though it comes with Lenovo sticker with the model number and part number but it is not not same after installation. Windows also fails to detect it as a Lenovo panel but recognise it only a generic PnP monitor and even AMD Radeon FreeSync is disabled as well.

HWInfo only captured the OEM panel manufacturer such as ChiMei but the actual OEM part number is not the same as the sticker as well. So most likely it is an OEM panel with fake Lenovo sticker.

I did ask Lenovo for the panel but it costs almost $400 and still charged me $150 on top to install.

Is the shopback cashback valid for those who bought the Lenovo Legion 5?

yes... for T495s thinkpad users, if your monitor comes with AMD freesync, you can update to AMD Radeon software and then it comes with additional options such as:
- HDMI link assurance
- Virtual super resolution
- HDMI scaling
- color depth
- pixel format

For those with legion 5, may i know do u all have issue with turning on the keyboard backlit? I'm not able to turn it on with FN+spacebar most of the time. But no issue turning it on with lenovo vantage.

After turning on with vantage, i can toggle it off using FN+spacebar but will not be able to turn it back on unless i use vantage to toggle.

Summary: Use FN+spcaebar not able to on backlit

try to do a clean uninstall of Lenovo Vantage and re-install again

if that fails, then try to download Lenovo Utility App

When I first boot up my Legion 5... I spent the whole afternoon updating the laptop.

Make sure the Windows 10 Home has all the latest patches
Make sure Lenovo Vantage update all the Lenovo software and programs
Make sure AMD is updated
Make sure Nvidia is updated

Update Microsoft Edge to the latest edition

Remove all bloatware (thanks for sharing the program to remove the bloatware)

once all these is done. I will run all the update checks one more time, just to make sure that everything is updated.

Then I proceed to install my games
