    DOCUMENTATION:

    WARNINGS:

    • Test before installation! When you receive a backlight/LCD kit, you should perform a dry run before installing to assure that nothing has been damaged in transit. A dry run or test fit means the kit is not installed in the shell. This includes the use of adhesives, brackets, and any performed soldering. All ribbon cables should have no bends or creases in them. If you are unsure how to perform a dry run, please contact our support team and we will be happy to help. Backlight kits that have been installed are not eligible for replacement or return.
    • LCD may break if put under too much pressure or dropped. Please exercise extreme caution when installing.

    It's a very good product.
    The product arrived very quickly and worked perfectly.
    I prefer backlit LCD with bivert module than IPS.

    works great, but beware it is very bright

    Got one for my Gameboy Light Pocket (pretty much a Gameboy Pocket using a Gameboy Light screen) and it works flawlessly, it is very bright but beware, if you have a white lense or clear shell there will be a lot of light bleed. Still overall happy with the result
