To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Got this because I tore the original screen's ribbon cable doing a reshell. This replacement looks great. The screwdriver IS NOT a tri-wing screwdriver, just a precision phillips. As pictured, It doesn't come with speakers or a screen protector (other than the one used for shipping). Soldering the speaker wire on was very easy, it even has little positive/ negative markers on the cable. I also easily soldered on the copper sheet attached (not included with this screen) to the back of the original screen, as I'm guessing it was a ground wire.
TL;DR: works like a factory new screen, disappointed the screwdriver wasn't a tri-wing.
Got this to replace my son's original top screen that had too many dead pixels. It did work, but the screen shows vertical lines all across it after 10 minutes of playing. I'm mostly peeved because now I'm going to have to take the whole thing apart again to get it fixed...
I had ordered this replacement LCD to repair a DS with a damaged top screen flex cable. Unfortunately, the LCD arrived with a creased flex cable that appears to have been pressed against one of the sharp corners of the metal frame. Additionally, the lower right corner of the screen was damaged, resulting in a cluster of dead pixels around that area. The packaging arrived undamaged.
I opted to exchange the faulty unit for another, and was promptly shipped a replacement. However, the replacement display was riddled with stuck and dead pixels across the display area. I have decided to return this one and look elsewhere.
