iPad Retina 1536x2048 9.7" (QX2) LCD to Mini DisplayPort Adapter


This adapter allows connecting 9.7" 1536x2048 "retina" iPad Air (see below for compatibility) LCD panel to any PC/Mac with Mini DisplayPort (or DisplayPort with appropriate cable). It provides switchable panel power, and switchable/dimmable backlight.

The advantage of LP097QX2 panel is better brightness, expanded color gamut, slightly lower power consumption, and lower weight (mostly plastic construction instead of aluminum). These panels should be available for similar prices to LP097QX1 (Ipad3/4) panels.

NOTE: These adapters are delivered with main and button board connected by a PCB bridge. Carefully break them apart to use separately.
