Really liked this kit, installed it in an original Game Boy pocket shell that I trimmed. The picture quality is great and the on-screen display options are nice. A centering bracket would be very helpful but you won't need to worry about it if you get an IPS-ready shell.
It’s actually really handy to be able to adjust the location of the image in the display settings. It was also pretty easy to install which was nice :)
Screen is great but way to hard for me to solder the wires for the extra features. Wish there was a better way
As the description said, the screen is washed out. Reviewing the linked thread, it's not clear what mod is necessary to fix this issue
As per the install video, I do like that the screen driver is not on the flex cable and rather its separate PCB, just seems more durable. The kit as a whole is awesome as long as care is taken to install the screen just right in the viewing window. Also love the color pallettes, that add a bit of color to the monochromatic screen!
Bought 4 of these. Work great, installation was very easy, cant recommend enough
