My wife dropped my iPad a little while back and got a crack in it. It was still usable, but the other day I knocked it off a counter and the glass shattered pretty nicely.

I ordered an iFixit kit and now it's like brand new (except for all the dents I had already put in the case).

Now I know what it feels like to be an Apple Genius, or even in the Geek Squad. I am so awesome.

Nice, Teggy! How hard was it to do? Mine has a hairline crack in the bottom right corner that bugs the heck out of me, but it's not bad enough that I've been tempted to fix it myself yet.

It was pretty easy with the kit (which is like $5 extra), but mine was a bit more difficult because of all the shattering. If I only had one crack it would have been a lot easier for me to get the glass off.

The decision you have to make is how much you want to pay. They have these shady $10 Chinese versions you can buy if you are not picky, but supposedly the glass is lower quality. I figured I'd be hanging on to this iPad for a while (it's a 3rd Gen, but I haven't had a need for a new one yet) so I splurged on the "official" $100 version.

That's about the going rate for a laptop screen too. Pretty easy to fix.
