Look like a worthy buy?
It's not OEM, as far I can tell.
Look like it would be worth it?

Be careful with aftermarket parts, I tried one and the design around the speaker area was different and affected the sound quality. I went back to OEM.

That's what I'm afraid of, I was a custom OEM bezel and it's just fine. Love it. This doesn't have OEM anywhere, and I'll a little hesitant and putting it together and having something click or not fit in correctly.\, or like you said cut the sound quality.
