    My Wii U GamePad's touchscreen has a pretty bad scratch on it, which somehow didn't bother me for ages but I've been playing Breath of the Wild on the GamePad a lot (trying to pretend I have a Switch!) and started to find it really distracting, so I decided to replace it.

    I ordered a replacement digitzer from eBay - it was listed as a Wii U digitizer and the photo in the listing looked identical to the original one in my GamePad, so I was disappointed when it arrived to find that it's actually quite different. First of all, it's made of glass, whereas the original is plastic, with a plastic layer stuck to the front of the glass that is noticeably diffuse, making the display look a bit blurry through it, and has a terrible finish on it that really shows up every fingerprint and is really easy to smudge. So needless to say that digitizer is going back as it is not a good replacement for the original one.

    So, please, does anyone know where I can get a good quality replacement from? Can anyone recommend a place they've bought from before? I don't mind whether it's plastic or glass, I just want to be able to see through it!
