In an effort to cut costs our company did not pay for cellphone insurance as we decided for the best part any damage that could occur to an iPhone, with the exception of turning it into a submersible, could be repaired through iFixit cheaper than the insurance option. From a personal perspective I just get great satisfaction out of giving new life to anything... the older the better, rescuing the planets natural reserves, reducing market retail consumption and saving the craftsman from extinction.
The repair was uneventful. Just so long as a systematic approach is applied with regard to those components removed from the product (i.e screws, brackets etc)so that they are replaced correctly. I am always impressed with the clarity, the predicted warnings and user friendliness of the guides. My first of three screen replacements took a couple of hours mainly because I finished the build only to discover that I had forgotten to insert the rubber gasket for the fascia button and subsequently had to do a complete strip and rebuild. The second build (well third really) took less than an hour and the third (okay fourth) was about thirty minutes... I do confess that I am a little bit of a perfectionist so I am sure my times were on the slow end of an expected spectrum.
The devil is in the detail... it is all too easy to think you know what you are doing and then discover to your demise that you are not the smart @%^ you thought you were. The iFixit crew provide that detail, so do not waste their scrupulous efforts by ignoring it.

Battery Not Holding Charge
Tools worked past my expectations. Took my time,FOLLOWED INSTRUCTIONS CLOSELY, and the repair went VERY well.
IN ALL HONESTY, your shipping charge of 31.00 stinks. I've shipped packages, same size and weight for ALOT LESS. That REALLY TARNISHED an otherwise STELLAR experience, and if its UPS your blaming....use someone else. I would have even waited longer to get the package rather than paying 200 dollars for tools and getting whacked for 31.00 shipping. That ruins the chance for "NEXT TIME"

The optical drive had failed and I wished to replace the stock harddrive with a solid state drive.
Perfectly. It was not nearly as difficult as it first appeared, but I certainly could not have done it without the guide, nor without the tools.
Removal of the power supply requires that one lift slightly the tab through which its fastening screw passes. I had a heck of time getting the power supply to slide out until a realized this.
