    Great but with a caveat

    This screen looks fantastic, is pretty easy to install. The one issue I wasn't prepared for was that * it's incompatible with the GBAccelerator *. I don't have a major issue with that, but it would've been nice going into the build with that info.

    Amazing! If you like retropixel mode, this is the screen you want!

    I was not sure about which screen to use in my GBA. I love the look of the retropixel modes on the DMG and GBC IPS screens however the GBA IPS screens all seem to lack this feature. I tried the IPS V2 and was not happy with the results. It did not have that retro look. I ended up getting the TFT kit and it’s EXACTLY what I was looking for. The screen resolution is the same as OEM and the clarity is great. An installation tip is to adjust the screen using the **** on the rear of the PCB to the right of the game slot after install. It will fine tune the display and get rid of any scan lines.

    Absolutely amazing

    I want an OEM modded GBA and this felt like the closest option available with a backlight. I have had the IPSv2 and wasn't thrilled about it. This kit is outstanding and would recommend it to anybody on the fence. Installation wasn't difficult and the screen re-alignment functionality is great. By far my favorite GBA mod I have done so far, highly recommended.
