I have a habit of leaving my phone on my lap while listening to music in my car. One night I was driving home from class and when I got out my phone popped out of my lap onto the asphalt and cracked. A friend referred me to ifixit and after reviewing other repair stories I decided to give it a shot.
The screen arrived in less than a week, great shipping. The repair was incredibly easy and I got everything right on the first try. UNFORTUNATELY less than 48 hours later the same incident that initially broke my screen happened again and I broke my replacement screen. I promptly ordered a new screen (and a tougher case) and am excited to do it again!
The cables that attach the screen to the phone itself are the hardest part. Take your time with these. It's not hard but you DO NOT want to damage them. Also getting the full screen assembly with home button and front camera is the best way to go. This way you have no chance of messing up the home button or front camera reassembly. And lastly, DO NOT repair your screen until your new case comes in. You don't want to go through two screens in one week like I did. Overall the screen quality is great, if anything it's better than the original. If I ever break my screen again (I hope not) I will definitely order from ifixit again.
