Where buy a genuine (and cheap) 15 inch LCD for MacBook Pro?

Hello,

I have my LCD and glass chacked and I want to buy a new one. I know that it is difficult to repair, but it doesn't matter, the question is the following:

Where can I find and but a genuine LCD for an MacBook Pro 15" Unibody Late 2008 and Early 2009? Also knows as MacBook Pro 5.1 or A1286.

My LCD is cracked but I love the image quality, I found diferent prices:

I want a cheap one, but I would also like to find a genuine LCD, the same quality as my had.

Is it imposible? Only Apple has them?

How is the OEM LCDs quality?

My brother have an Asus and the LCD viewing angle is pathetic.

Thanks in advance.

I like this site

http://www.powerbookmedic.com/15-Inch-Ma...

here is a description taken from that page that might help you on your question about genuine LCD

"Apple does not manufacture LCD panels. They use several different manufacturers. The panels we sell are the same manufacturer and part number that originally went into the Macbook Pro Unibody. It will be the same quality and type currently in your system. The matte version LCD is interchangeable with the glossy LCD. However, the Hi-Res and the Low-Res version are not interchangeable. There are two available resolutions for this product. The Hi-Res options are for the Core i5 and Core i7 models with the higher resolution screen."

On a side note, I do prefer buying from ifixit.com ^_^
