Works a charm!

I love this thing, super easy to install. The (optional) soldering is very easy (as long as you have a small enough tip on your iron). It is the definition of “plug and play”! The glass screen cover is beautiful and the whole package looks professional. Would HIGHLY recommend, but I would pick up a pre-trimmed shell.

Easy to install screen

My apologies for taking so long to do this review. I was going to install this in my GBA SP, but then held off until Boxy Pixel released their Unhinged shell mod. So here it is in all it's glory! This IPS screen dropped in no problem, and I love that it only needed a sole wire to be soldered for brightness control. The crisp display really brings the whole piece together, and the glass lens ensures it is just as sturdy as the metal shell. Another great product, and another mod complete!
