Default Another Cracked Screen

Joined the club this morning unfortunately. My touch screen still works, so like many, I just have to replace the front part.

I've read this thread almost in its entirety, but nobody mentions having any success. Has anybody tried replacing the screen themselves? Does anybody know if you can use a blowdryer instead of a heat gun?

Also, where are most people buying replacements? I see the one from China, but I'm a little wary of those so considering this: forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2617614

I've replaced laptop and mobile screens in the past (back in the HTC 8525 days), but not sure if this is out of skill-set. Would really appreciate some input.
