Default Replica laptop screen sites' trustworthiness?

Cracks propagating across my laptop's screen have rendered it immobile; a stationary VGA monitor has temporarily restored operationability. The proprietary repair service estimate is exorbitant, i.e. more than the laptop is new. Undiscouraged, a replacement screen search yielded numerous sites dedicated to affordable, "replica" screens. What is their trustworthiness & product compatibility/reliability?

Well it really depends on the site. Personally I would be skeptical about a lot of sites out there. If you make any purchases make sure that you are using a credit card, not a debit card for security reasons.

A lot of manufacturer's also have replacement monitors for a reasonable price - what model laptop are you using?

I have used this twice already. LAPTOP SCREEN, LCD panels from $42. Dell, HP Compaq, Toshiba, Acer, IBM Lenovo, Sony, Gateway, Apple, Asus replacement screen display panel

No problem. I would recommend it to anyone.

If you aren't sure about a site then a good place to start is with a service like Web of Trust: laptopscreen.com | WOT Reputation Scorecard | WOT (Web of Trust)
