There is a plenty of Digitizers on eBay and most of them are not Genuine, I also don't think so many people replaced they screens to let you know which you have to buy. Just check and ask the seller if you see a good deal.

BTW, do you know that you have to have a good skills to replace it?

I bought mine from www.witrigs.Com Find a couple different YouTube guides and take your time. It really isn't that hard of a repair but you will need the heat gun. Make sure you also order all the seals for putting the device back together.

Default DIY repair

Do you want to DIY repair?
It is very hard to only replace the digitizer part, even for the guy who has professional skill.
The digitizer and screen are glued together tighlty. So I think you have to replace the screen with digitizer part.
BTW, is a good website. You can find original part and repair guide. Good Luck.
