What about

It's the one.

I'd like to warn you - it's not a drop-in replacement. Any one of three 
is required besides the display itself:
1) Matching cable and inverter - if you find someone to build that for you
2) Old matching screen, soldering skills, patience and soldering rework 
station - to swap the screen connector between old and new (besides other)
3) Soldering skills, thin wires, soldering iron with thin tip, LOTS OF 
PATIENCE to solder the existing cable to the display wire-by-wire.

I prefer the second.
