    My friend's PSP screen broke, and I wanted to fix it for him in exchange for him letting me borrow it to play Final Fantasy I and II Anniversary Edition. I found one on Ebay and another on dealextreme, but I'm curious as to what brand is the best while still being the cheapest, as well as if there is another online store whose shipping is quicker than dealextreme.

    Those were the ones I found. Not quite sure of the difference between the three of them.

    Well what model is your friends PSP. Make sure it is the 1000 series before buying any of those.

    If it is a 1000 series then the second link is the best if your worried about dead pixels. Otherwise the first link.

    It is indeed a 1000.

    What tools would I need to replace the screen? Would a repair guide come with my order, or should I find a guide online?

    You would need to get a guide online. The only tools you will need is a Phillips screwdriver (size 00) and something flat to GENTLY pry the bottom button bar and existing screen out, either a small knife or a flat screwdriver. Be CAREFUL, and be GENTLE.
