I just finished installing the kit into my new shell and it works pretty well. Everything worked just fine when I tested the screen before installing it. Installation went smoothly for the most part, but I'll elaborate on that further down. I opted to remove the touch sensors, but the Select, L, R method works great. The brightness settings greatly enhance the enjoyability of GBA games.
That being said, I do have a few gripes. Firstly, I wish the **** holes in the modified prestige shell came pre drilled. There wasn't any trouble **** everything down, but that resistance definitely made me a little hesitant. Secondly, after installation and loading up a game, I noticed some light bleeding through on the left side of the screen and along the bottom as well. Lastly, there seems to be this buzzing/humming noise when the unit is on. The unit has to be held up to your ear to hear it, but it's there nonetheless.
This is an edit of a prior review. I left the thing to sit overnight and a problem that I was having with the osd just went away. Screen is bright and clear, but the touch controls are overly sensitive. Ended up removing the one for color scheme as I don't need quick access to that.
The touch controls seem to alternate between going off for no reason at all, and not responding. The OSD pops up but can't be interacted with. Included is a video of the display changing colors for no reason. Eventually we got it stuck in a color mode that looks close to normal and managed to get it back to being unresponsive. Design is nice otherwise, but the controls need work.
I tested the screen before installation multiple times, it worked and looked beautiful. Installed it, and it works perfectly… for like a week.
Haven’t dropped it, only kept it in my room to play. Out of nowhere, one side of the screen goes dark! Part of the backlight gave out completely out of nowhere! I tried resetting, changing batteries, reseating…
Huge disappointment for something this expensive!!

The screen is awesome, the osd works great, the picture is night and day from the original, bright, colorful, clear and crisp. Would buy again for sure in the future.
Only "downside" is the top touch pad doesn't seem to work even after moving it. The guide mentioned this could be an issue so no surprise there. Honestly I find the touch pad stuff kinda gimmicky anyway.
I bought two of these kits. Installed both. The feature is and works great. But both screens had some bleed, one significantly worse than the other. I bought the replacement shells suggested for the screen but the fit was tight which is presumably why they’re bleeding. Of course I tested before hand, but you wouldn’t be able to see screen bleed in the white GBA boot screen. So once fully installed and tested with a game it became noticeable.
