My friend dropped his iPad down a set of stairs. it took a direct hit to the corner when it hit the tile floor at the bottom. Yhe Retina display stopped functioning. fortunately the touch screen survived. Using the manuals on this site I was able to safely remove the touch panel and see that the issue was in fact only the screen.
I received the screen in excellent shape, I am very happy with the quality packaging. the installation went very well using the iFixit tool kit I had purchased a while ago. I followed the instructions on the site, I like pictures. The job was done within 15 minutes and the iPad was back playing minecraft in no time.
I wish I had known about iFixit a year ago, could have made some other friends happy with their broken devices they ended up paying a fortune to have repaired. Thanks iFixit.. you have a new loyal customer.

Bought an iPad, dropped it a couple times (on accident obviously) and ended up messing up the LCD display and it wouldn't turn on anymore. APPLE said they can fix it for $300
Went super smooth. It was easier then I thought and didn't run into any problems. ifixit says it difficult to replace the iPad 3 wifi LCD but it's not difficult. More like Inbetween easy and moderately difficult.
Buy the kit that includes the I opener. Made it super easy to loosen up the glue and get the whole kit that comes with the tools and picks so you can pry open the iPad front screen. And always be patient. Don't rush anything.
Also follow ifixit Guid! Perfect!

shattered outer screen - LCD had a small spot
Removing the shattered glass was very difficult. There are a few pieces of debris between the glass, I should've used (or the guide recommended) compressed air to clean between the two screens. The hot roll was ineffective, essentially I just scraped between the outer screen and the base until I got all of the glass and glue removed.
The ribbon for the home button was difficult and I had the refer to other online tutorials, perhaps a better description of how to install this while it is attached to the outer screen. I did not want to remove it from the new screen so I wouldn't risk damaging it when I removed it.
