    update - fit the screen this afternoon and it works, with a couple of 'buts'

    firstly, there is a blue-ish smear in the middle of the screen - only small, but a bit distracting.

    and the buttons don't light up properly, but they do work.

    might be cause of excess pressure . check you have not over-tighten the screws.

    it was surprisingly easy to do - has mid frame fitted already (strongly recommended) - 16 screws and a lot of gentle prising 6 or seven small cables to clip and unclip took about 40 mins - but could prob do it again in about 15

    WARNING:
    I purchased a screen from a Chinese company named Vifocal. I did a very thorough job of installing it and it powered up on first try. About five seconds into booting up the screen went black. Upon doing a little research I learned that their QC is less than desirable and that this is a fairly common issue. Once I contacted customer service, they asked that I send it back. I had to pay the shipping. I followed all their instructions and for some reason it simply never showed up, according to them. Unfortunately the shipping receipt was accidentally discarded into the trash and I have no tracking info for the post office to give me info on. Now they wont reply to my emails and I am out $100 roughly. Not a big deal but talk about a frustrating experience. The worst customer service experience I've ever encountered. I just want you guys that are looking for replacement screens to know that you should look elsewhere. Buyer beware!

    note: I should also mention that the bottom of the screen wasn't "glued" down and was lifting quite substantially. Even if it did power up and function properly I would have had to still return it...

    I bought one from ali express and the frame wasn't official (it had a chrome/shinny finish to it) and the actual screen has little black dots all over the screen that are barely visible from certain angles on a white screen. Does really bother me as the screen still works and it was only 60 AUD.
