Earlier this year I dropped a 30GB iPod Video at the gym and broke the screen. The screen didn't actually have that split crystal look to it, but was just a scramble of lines and blank spaces. After looking around for a while, I decided to get a do-it-yourself iPod Video screen replacement kit from Kokopelli Music
for $37 shipped, including tools and instructions. I figured that doing it myself woud be cheaper and also save me from having to ship my iPod in.
I'm happy to report that I did the transplant myself using the excellent instructions and am really happy with the new screen. I think it's brighter than the old one. There are a lot of vendors out there doing iPod repair, and I just wanted to thank and recommend Kokopelli Music for being fast and honest to deal with by doing this unsolicited post and link back. Thanks, guys.
