personally anytime you get something off ebay you are taking a chance, I would only buy from Dell, first of all I KNOW it will work correctly, and second it comes with a warranty....but thats me & my me it really doesnt matter about the cost but the fact that I get the right part and the peace of mind that it will work when I get it and if it fails in 3 weeks or whatever I will have some support/replacement options..I didnt skimp when I bought my Mini and I wouldnt skimp on fixing it either (luckily works perfectly)....just my 0.02...

I bought one of these when my daughter broke my screen.

Dell 910 mini 9 LCD Screen 8.9" Laptop Display Panel - eBay (item 140334848683 end time Apr-17-10 20:57:34 PDT)

It came in pretty quickly, and it was brand new and worked perfectly. There was no dead pixel or anything.

When I bought it, it was $38.24, and I used Bing Cashback to knock additional 8% off.

If you do some poking around on the boards you'll bring up the various touchscreen install threads.
Looks like it's pretty useful as I see it becoming an option on more and more machines nowadays.
