    Ok. So I have the SM-P600 (2014 edition) with a cracked digitizer. When I ordered a replacement, i figured it'd be like every other tablet I've repaired and it would be a simple enough swap. I didn't know that the digitizer was actually attached to the LCD itself by adhesive. I thought if I went slow enough with enough heat, I could separate the two and use my new digitizer. I was wrong. After I finally got them apart, the LCD was cracked.

    I dont want to have to order an entire screen assembly if I dont have to. (They're kinda pricey.)

    My question is:
    Is the LCD from the GT-N8013 compatible with this model? From all the pictures I've seen, the look to have their connections in the same places, but I'm not completely sure.

    I would doubt it to be honest but research the parts list online for the two devices should give you the answer..

    GT-N8013 and SM-P600 are completely different tablets, so they're not compatible.
    The one you can look is SM-P600 ( Wifi ) or SM-P605 from Verizon or SM-P607 from T Mobile.
    The Note 2014 4G LCD assembly can use in wifi tablet, just ignore the antenna and SIM slot.
    The top one is Wifi, the bottom is LTE, they're almost identical except antennas and SIM slot

    Ok, thanks! I was just hoping that since I have a loose digitizer, that I could just swap in an lcd and save about $40.

    You can buy the LCD only for this model, but without LOCA ( Liquid Optical Clear Adhesive ) your screen will have a big dark spot like this

    When the screen is on, it will look like this

    A big screen like this it's very difficult to apply LOCA evenly without air gap. Without using LOCA, it takes me at least 3 to 4 hours to complete a replacement of a LCD or touchscreen .

    Cleaning this glue is not a quick and easy task if the LCD is working and not damaged.

    These pictures are from the Note Pro or Tab Pro 12.2

    So question if I buy a whole screen assembly for the Sm-p605 will it work on a Sm-p607?

    SM-P605 and SM-P607 actually are identical tablets, the difference is software customized to a provider and logo on the back cover.
    You install motherboard from SM-P605V to SM-P607T LCD assembly,it will become a Verizon Note with T-Mobile logo on the back cover.
    I can even use a Wifi LCD SM-P600 LCD with a LTE mainboard, but the SIM will be not be accessible because there is no opening for the SIM card in the Wifi LCD. The back cover has to be removed in order to access the SIM slot.
    I swap mainboard and LCD between LTE and Wifi tablets with ease as most parts are identical.
