Struggle for GBA first timer (experienced solder+electronics hobbyist.

I struggled with this, at least some of it is my own fault, and I modified the shell myself, might have been unwise . The two directions online (part 1 and 2, although they are really two separate sets of directions) here weren't very helpful, someone should re-write them from scratch. I didn't break the screen, which sounds like it was a hazard from the warnings. The wires are soldered very delicately to the board, at wrong angles, bad design. I broke and had to re-solder one. I had to reposition both pads several times, I hope they stay stuck now! I'm not sure sticking one to the top is a good idea, and I couldn't really tell from the pictures whether it was supposed to be attached to the very top or the front near the top, and IDK if it makes a big difference. The extra bracket was unnecessary, but the side "position stick" was too thick, perhaps I needed to shave the sides more? I have a V2 from another modder on another GBA to compare, and I like the new design, but it looks like another clear insulating sticker/tape for the board would be good (was it included and I misplaced it?) Why does the insulating sticker on part 2 directions looked melted/scorched? I didn't dare solder the extra wires for brightness control, I struggled too much as it was. Wait for a branded V3 with clearer instructions, I wish I did.

GBA ISP V3

This was my first experience modding any sort of device and this was the perfect kit for it! I got a prestige shell and a bracket for an easier install, and while I had to cut and sand the bracket to get it to fit properly, it was a smooth process. The finished product is everything I was hoping for and I can't wait to challenge myself with more difficult mods in the future.

Great products, difficult to install

I am a newbie, and this IPS wasn’t the one to start on. I didn’t find a ton of resources on this site for this model, but I did eventually see more in the comments of reviews here that I found useful. Only knocking off a star because I can see how easy it would be to damage the product as a newbie modder. Just be careful and plan your build!

Great Screen!

This screen is great and I love that there is a no solder option. Love the image quality and brightness. The color palettes are nice for monotone Gameboy games. I had a little trouble with finding a good spot for the touch sensors so that they weren't triggering accidently but eventually got there. Great product overall!
