I need to get some replacement screens for my DS, and I was wondering if anyone could recommend somewhere that is NOT shoptemp or DX. I need these things now, not 2-3 weeks from now.
Thankyou.
Anyone that has installed replacement screens/touch screen. Can you tell the difference between OEM?

I have now waited one entire month for a DX replacement DS Lite Touch screen and a screen protector. I placed my order 9/22 and it is still not here.

This is why.

edit: Came today. 1 month exactly.

eBay, and most of the time, the replacement feels different, harder feeling.
Is that a bad thing?
Anyone experience with an exact one that feels very similar?
QUOTE(pokefreak2008 @ Oct 22 2010, 12:21 PM) this is why i have a hard case and screen protectors so i don't have to replace the screen(scared of opening the ds my self and wrecking it).
as am I. But the Zelda games scratched up my screens.

well, they didn't do it directly but.....somehow my screen got some kind of abrasive dust on it or spec, and the stylus just scratched the heck out of the screen over the course of the two games. moral I guess is to clean your touch screen frequently(CAREFULLY, cleaning incorrectly will also scratch your screen, ie. disposable microfiber cloths) I BABY! my DS, but in the end you are still touching it with that stylus. any dust on there and scratching begins. i'm actually not doing any stylus games for a bit till I figure out what to do.

Yeah, I didn't really like it, but there are some that has original feeling. Even when bought from DX with the same sku, I get some that are and some that aren't. It isn't consistent, maybe different batches or different suppliers I'm not sure.

Why is it always ebay?
Those are good deals and would ship very fast, none the less.
Since I finally, got mine from DX, I'll have to build up the courage to disassemble my DS now.
