  • 10 Levels of brightness

  • You do not need to purchase a separate lens. Removing pre-adhered lens from LCD can result in damage to the LCD and will void product warranty. If you received an extra lens in your order, this was likely a included plastic lens with a shell and should NOT be placed on top of the pre-adhered lens.
  • 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.

IPS Backlit LCD Kit for Game Boy Advance SP - HISPEEDIDO

Great LCD

Installed in an early GBA SP with the dark screen and this is a fantastic upgrade. Overall, fairly easy to install (SP is a little more difficult because of the hinge, etc.). Getting the tiny wire soldered to the plasticy wire connector in order to add brightness control was somewhat difficult - guess my soldering skills aren't that great, but got it done and its nice to have different brightness settings. If you don't care about that, you could skip the soldering and it would be perfectly fine with one brightness setting. So fun to be able to build upgraded (and fugly) GBAs with these LCDS.

amazing mods


Pixel perfect clarity and so much brightness

I've installed 3 of these as of writing this review. The install is simple even with soldering the brightness control wire. Trimming the shell isn't too bad, just make sure to have a quality set of flush cutters to do most of the heavy lifting. The display is extremely sharp but doesn't distort any of the original graphics you love, but now you can really see all the detail the designers put into the games. Can't go back to the old ways.
