Vaio Replacement Laptop Screen


[link to this post]
 
Had an accident with a laptop and need a new screen for it.

Fitting is no problem but the only supplier I can find is on eBay - no reason to question whether it will work or not but am a bit concerned that the quality might not match up to the original, surprisingly though googling "genuine vaio screen" or anything similiar yields no useful results at all from what I can see. I am of course aware Sony don't make the screens themselves anyway but I have known replacement screens to differ in brightness etc etc.

So there's one of two things hopefully someone could help me with smile

a) The screens that I am seeing on eBay - any experiences, likely to be good quality?
b) By chance does anyone know where I could get a genuine vaio replacement screen or an outlet that they have used who provide decent screens I could go and ask?

Hi
I have replaced dozens of laptop screens, all from ebay.
The quality is good, but maybe 1 in 10 have a permanently lit or dead pixel but still adhere to iso 13406-2 standards. (class 2)

I include the document above when replacing clients LCD's; not sure I could live with a "fault" on my own laptop though.

As for genuine replacements....no idea.

We can sometimes send 100% compatible parts for your order.

and on every other description page therefore same as ebay screens... non original.

Thanks for the replies all.

An update: Took original screen out and purchased an identical LG model number (but as ian007jen mentions and I picked up on... all mention "compatible").

Anyhow screen has arrived. It isn't LG like the part number was for, oh and the backlight doesn't work tongue

Going back to the seller....
