Which online store should I purchase a Laptop Replacement Screen from?

Asked by se_ven (789points) April 12th, 2010

I’m working on a friends laptop where the screen has gone out. I’ve narrowed it down to it needing a replacement screen.

It is a Dell Inspiron B130 15.4” laptop, and Dell does carry a replacement:

I’ve also seen this website which has a replacement listed for $119 (about $100 less than Dell), but I’m not too sure about the quality, reliability, trustability, etc.

Do you have a favorite site for Laptop Screen replacements?

I typically would get this type of thing from Fry’s Electronics or, but they don’t carry them there.

Much thanks in advance!

Have you tried looking on ebay? or search on craigslist for another system with motherboard issue but working screen.

My friend got a cheaper one off the net for his Dell. It went out again within a year.

I got one from ebay for an older laptop and found that it didn’t work. So I returned it and got another one also from ebay (different seller) and it has worked mostly fine since. (and I think the small glitches it has now are my fault – I hadn’t installed a screen before)

Point being, cheaper can be ok if the DOA and return policies are good, and if you know how to install them right.
