    Fairly easy install

    The install went as smoothly as the installation videos depict. Highly recommend adding the usc charging. The only unresolved issue is the dial on the DMG becomes stuck in the case.

    Super Cool

    This screen looks amazing! The options are nice too. I had to trim down some of the rubber square on the display board to get it to fit properly, otherwise the settings wheel was getting caught in the shell. It was overall pretty straightforward to install. Side note I am getting an audible buzzing sound when the boy is on. I installed an extra capacitor to the power circuit, it seemed to reduce the buzz by only a little. Open to suggestions on how to fix that.

    Beautiful replacement screen

    I have a box of Gameboys with dead screens that I’ve had sitting around for years so I finally decided get them working now that we have great replacements available. I decided to try this one first as I liked the inclusion included a picture of an old backlight mod (left) compared to the IPS screen (right) and it’s amazing to see how far we’ve come in the last 10 years. This is installed in a FunnyPlaying shell and fit fine but the screen is a hair small because of the bigger cutout because the shell and lens are design for a screen that’s 11% larger. I don’t mind that I can see the sides of the screen but this may bother some but this can remedied by installing a standard less instead of the FunnyPlaying lens I used.
    The OSD has some great features. I love being able to change the colors of the screen and the pixel mode makes it look more like the original display. It’s a bright, crisp screen and I have t noticed any issues with latency. I’m very happy with my purchase and will like buy a few more to revive other Gameboys in my parts bin.

    Gameboy perfection

    Screen looks absolutely amazing. Install was easy enough. Only hiccup was a pre installed ribbon cable that was backwards. Overall well worth the money, gives the OG Gameboy a new lease on life.

    Great Screen With one glaring ( red ) issue

    So I installed this mod and absolutely love the upgrade! Its clear, easy to use, great viewing angles and a variety of fun color modes you can switch on the fly. Install was pretty easy too but after putting it back together I could NOT use it as designed.

    The red LED light for power included with this kit is extremely bright almost distractingly so. If you're playing it in the dark it's like a laser pointed right at you even with the screen dimmed. Led lights of the late 80s were much more muted and subtle so the original GB power light was never more than a dull indicator. This new board uses a new red LED and it is three times as bright as the original!

    I tried some tint material to dim it, thought about adding a resistor but eventually i settled on just transplanting the original LED power light off of my original DMG screen board. I don't recommend this if you're a beginner with small electronics.

    I'm hoping the HandHeldLegend team reads this and maybe puts a trim pot on the board for the power light on future builds. This could help some discomfort for some others like myself to dial it back a bit without doing some surgery.

    Otherwise its a 10/10 product and its revived my DMG to be my favorite portable. I just don't like getting blasted with a red laser while I'm playing in the dark.
