The worst happened and my screen had a horrible black line going all the way across it. Companies were asking for ridiculous prices to repair it so I decided to order a screen myself and put it in. Best idea ever. It took me ten minutes tops to install, and I loved the outcome. The screen quality seems to be much better than that of the original one I had. However, I did have a dead pixel that really bothered me at first. Due to the requirement of having 5 dead pixels to get a new screen, I couldn't do anything about it. But it's hardly noticeable (especially since I've had it for a while) and I saved at least 30 dollars ordering it here. Not bad at all.
It was a nasty accident that took out the screen on my Dell and rendered it useless. I hooked up my laptop to a 17 inch monitor but that doesn't make it a laptop anymore. So I found a professional fellow who knew how to replace the screen for $40 and now I have my laptop back, functioning 100% as it should. I actually tried purchasing a new PC/laptop and discovered how much using Windows 8 with a mouse doesn't seem like fun to me. What a relief!!
The original OEM screen was an LG screen. I had to replace it because it was cracked. This screen was only $50 and at first, I was skeptical as these screens normally cost about $100.00. I can't find any label with who makes this screen but it didn't matter.
The removal and installation took less than 15 minutes to install, and wow, the clarity and brightness of this screen was way better than the original screen.
Didn't know what to expect or how to put it in for that matter, thank goodness for the almighty YouTube. Had the screen swapped out in 10 minuets. Take your time on removing the screen beauty ring thing or it'll crack.
