Hi, I am looking to get an LCD for a Macbook unibody to fix my self,

I'm just wondering if ifixit is a trustworthy website to order from?

Any experiences?

They've been around for years. Yes they can be trusted.

Yes, they are very well known on the Mac repair scene. They are also known for taking apart just released Apple products to see the insides of the machines. They are pretty trustworthy, I never heard of anyone with a problem with them, although for some of the simpler parts (screws, keyboards, top cases) eBay is usually cheaper. But on a part like a display you are going to get what they advertise with pretty great quality.

iFixit are a very trustworthy site. They've been around for years, and their 'teardowns' of every new Apple product are always interesting :D

I think their website is awesome.

Their products and services are pretty good too.

I replaced my iPhone front panel; the price was fair, the fix kit OEM quality and the detailed instructions made the process about as easy as it could possibly be. Everything about the fix that went well was iFixit's success; everything that went poorly as mine. I screwed up the home row button, but the instructions warned me I was going to do that. They also warned me to be careful with the baffle or I'd get dust under my screen; I wasn't, and I did.
