Screens are tricky because they have a seal to keep out dust. If its not done right you may end up with dust particles later and it will drive you mad. You also need a clean/dust free room because dust will get in when your're sealing up the screen. It may look dust free but there is dust all around. I'm not sure how it is for our G2x, but that's how it was with my HTC G1.
I had a Nexus One on launch and few months down the road, I noticed dust in the corner. I ended up getting 2 more replacements due to dust under the screen. Probably crappy QA. When replacing my girlfriends G1 damaged digitizer, I tore the LCD flex PCB ribbon. There are a few layers of flex PCB and it has to be plugged one layer at a time. It was madness!!!
I would suggest getting the replacement from T-Mobile just so you have peace of mind.
Don't feel bad about breaking your phone. Last Monday (Memorial Day) I jumped in the pool with my one week old G2x. I didn't realize until 20 minutes later. I have insurance so I had a new one by Wednesday. Funny thing is, It still works, but the screen was waterlogged and screwy. Because of the issues I had with my G1's, I just paid the $130 to have it replaced.
