Answer to: Are new, malfunctioning digitizers the norm?I've replaced the digitizer on my GSM Evo 3D 6 times now. All of them came from eBay, from several different vendors. I've tried the $50 digitizers and the $10. Each of them "brand new", each of them "OEM", each of them "tested" and each of them packaged beautifully. Yet not one has worked 100%. I've seen indents/divets on the circuit side, had dead zones, frozen screens, phantom touches etc. I agree with the op, at least for eBay screens. Unfortunately, with so much crap out there on eBay, there's simply no way to tell if it's the genuine article. Returning them is always a nightmare and a time delay, so I just stick with the cheapo $10 ones and try to buy from my own country.
