There are so many quality of screens in the market that it is ridiculous. Ifixit sells great quality and they give you lifetime warranty. I would not mess with eBay or Amazon screens especially if this is one time kind of deal.

The advantage of buying from ifixit is that they are a reputable retailer. As a result, you know the part will be exactly what you ordered and will work. Ebay and some sellers on Amazon don't always have that guarantee and are more competitive markets for sellers, thus driving the prices down. That said, the chance that you will get a defective display unit from any source is rather low and there are protections in place that allow you to return the item if it is defective, buy they tend to be a bit of a hassle.

Basically:

Buy from ifixit = guaranteed working part

Buy from Amazon / Ebay = not always guaranteed working part
