Game Boy Advance IPS LCD V2 - Funnyplaying
Came very well packaged, nice and safe even with a not so electronic friendly mail woman. Pretty simple installation and handheld legends has a good how to guide on their site. Soldering is not required unless you'd like to have the brightness controls but I managed to pop it in and get playing within and afternoon. Would definitely order again.
I paired this screen with a retro six presized case. Simply beautiful.
This was my first major soldering project (along with clean amp pro and power filter) everything went in without issue, but I did have some difficulty working with the super fine wires for the brightness controls. But it's all done and my GBA looks fantastic.
Best of all, if you don't want to deal with soldering you can just plug this screen in and leave it at the default brightness. Pair it with a precut case and you'll be wrapped up with a backlit GBA in about half an hour!
The screen looks amazing. It's very clear, and has very smooth motion. It's a huge upgrade from the stock screen.
When installing, it was a bit difficult to make sure it was centered, so installation was a little tough. The spacers I had (don't remember if they came with the case or the screen) did not center the screen correctly, so I had to hold everything together without the adhesive, power the screen on, and make notes of where everything lined up, in order to make sure it was centered. With a lot of patience and triple checking your work before securing everything with the adhesive, everything will work out well.
The product quality is great. No issues, good brightness and image quality.
Installation requires medium levels of competence with electronics. Soldering is only required if you want to add brightness control. Some of the solder points are on the smaller side - could be challenging if inexperienced in soldering. The hardest part may actually be alignment and positioning for a good shell closure.
Excellent screen! Very easy to install if you opt to get the optional bracket. Great clarity, brightness and colour. Games look incredibly on this. Excellent viewing angles as well. If you are afraid to solder, the default brightness is more than enough and kind of a sweet spot. I did do the optional soldering to get brightness controls, and it wasn't very hard. Just use a little patience and flux and it's really easy with the provided video tutorials on Hand Held Legend. Would absolutely recommend this to anyone with a GBA
