best place to buy backlights?

Post by nuketifromorbit » Mon Mar 23, 2015 4:39 pm

I need to replace the back light of a casio vz10m and I'm wondering if anyone has a vendor they would recommend? Google turns up backlight4u, which looks fairly reputable, and on ebay there is the seller "backlights". Any experience with either?

I bought a backlight for my Emu ESI-32 from this ebay seller, and it works great.
Seller also sends instructions and warnings to be aware of when installing.

I went with Telesis and my backlight arrived a couple days ago. Thanks for the advice guys.
