My g/fs dad leaned on his laptop and now there is a nice big black crack through the middle of the screen. Hooked it up to his TV for now but am wondering about replacing the screen myself. His warranty is up and the local guy quoted him like $300 (insane).
He has a HP Pavilion dv6 2151cl
1. I see a few places online that sell screens but if someone can tell me a legit one that would be nice. I am in the USA.
2. From what i see the screen is LED 1366x768. I see a lot of different types on some sites available for this model. So am i wrong about which one this has?

you should be able to get a new screen for under $100 so he wants about $200 for a pretty quick and straight
usually costs me about £60 in the uk for a screen
thats probably the right resolution--but you can check the resolution while in windows connected to his tv
other thing is it matte or glossy screen
and you need to know if the ribbon connector is on the right or left
best bet is take the screen out and get the model number from the rear just to be sure
