    Broken 27” screen help
    My roommate decide to put his foot through my iMac which was fun.
    Took tha screen off and it’s a lm270wq1 sd f1. Looking at used replacements they are $350+. My question is,does any other screen fit? There are some for less $$$ on eBay. It’s a 2011 27” iMac.

    Appreciate the help!!

    Somehow, I don't think you're going to get any non-sarcastic answers here.

    You could possibly just buy a stand-alone display and connect it to and let your iMac drive it. Maybe even duct tape it to your iMac if needed. I'm sure Red-Green has done something similar if you ever watched the Canadian humour show.

    Good suggestion on a possible fix pm-r

    I know where I would have put my foot if my roommate put his foot through my 27 inch Mac.

    Your particular iMac is one of the easier models to change out the display. However, you will need a genuine replacement display either from Apple or another supplier. I suggest you check out eBay where you may be able to locate one. Also, go to and look up the instructions on how to change out the display.
