So I bought this from Offer Up a few months ago and decided I didn't like it. Sold it on EBay and shipped to Hawaii. It somehow was damaged in transit and now it's back in my possession.

Originally cost me $500. Now I am wondering if it is worth repairing. The model is a Yoga 3 20DM008UUS which has the Wacom digitizer to it. OEM screens seem to be ~$300 and up.

Did you purchase insurance on your shipment? If so you may be able to file a claim for reimbursement. UPS automatically insures the first $100, if you used them. looks like you'd need more than just a screen to repair it though and new ones go for about 800 bucks. If you're spending 300+ on just a screen, you'll be into it for at least the cost of a new one. might be better off to sell it for parts and recoup as much of your original 500 as you can.
