I think this is one of those questions that is hard to answer. Some of it is of course personal preference. The other thing that I would do, make sure that the seller is a reputable seller. Check the feedback of the seller, check the return policy. I have had very good results with most of the vendors (yes even the Chinese ones) when it comes to fit and quality. I purchase most of my iPod repair parts from the ebay vendors and have not had any issues. Good Luck

I agree with oldturkey03. Same good experiences on ebay for spare parts.


Thanks! The seller has 99.9% positive feedback so i should be safe! Thanks again and have a nice day!


I agree, I have never had a bad experience buying used parts from eBay.
