    Hello out there

    I have like many of you guys bought several things from ebay, and quality varies a lot.

    I need a new LCD screen (not the glass) for my Iphone 3G.

    I can find it in china very cheap, 24$ like this: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=260596827903&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT#ht_3444wt_913

    But its by the way a fairly complex product, would you think it is a good idea to buy, or is it maybee the exactly same screen as you can buy several other places, just more expensive? It seems like it is the same picture of the product almost every shop uses?

    This one i really cant figure out

    What would you do?

    Thanks' :)

    Thomas

    Well they are different types. There are authentic and then high duplicates. IF you want to be 100% certain you are getting a good part buy from DirectFix.com or something.

    I repair iPhone and I have used the duplicate parts at times as per the request of the customer (because of price) and haven't really ever had an issue.
