Palm parts

Can anyone recommend good sources for palm parts?
I just picked up a Palm tungsten T on ebay for 13.50 with a cracked screen. Figured even if i couldn't fix it, i could send it back to palm and see what they could do. Price qoute from palm of about ~100.00 for a new screen and digitizer.

Does anyone know of a better place to source palm pilot components?

Even if you could find a better place to find the part, would Palm install it?

Just pay Palm the $100 and save yourself the time looking for it. Sounds like you got a great deal any way you look at it.

I want one of the new T3s.

palm's replacement is the best... i know someone who has replaced their own screen when it cracked.. a pain in the ass but it wasn't impossible.

I'd go for the 100 and you've only paid 113.50 for the unit...

actually...

A nameless company in the business of selling re-manufactured palms who had bid against me contacted me and asked if i'd be willing to re-sell it for a profit. They offered 55.00 and i took it, walking away a profit and still on the market for a tungsten T in the below 110.00 area.
I've also got a cracked lcd tungsten C that's i've been fiddling with turning into a lowpower wifi base unit by leaving it on the cradle for max power. If anyone is interested, I'll post about that.

Thank you everyone for the suggestions. the overwhellming response seems to be that Palm provides quality replacment parts. Something i take comfort in as a customer. Thanks everyone for responding.
