Carving out the shell was kind of a pain, but it was all worth it in the end. The screen looks amazing. Color is EXTREMELY vivid. The maximum brightness is pretty dang bright. Not sure how much more power this draws from the battery though.
Game Boy Advance SP IPS Backlit LCD Kit - Unbranded
I love this new IPS screen mod I installed on my GBA SP. The screen works great. The colors are more vibrant, the brightness is a lot better than the 001 I had and the pixel quality is amazing. The only problem I have is that the one I got bleeds light out of the left side of the screen. It’s definitely not a major problem or an issue I’d return the item for but it is a bit annoying for a guy like me. The only time it’s very noticeable is when you’re viewing from an angle or moving your character around on the screen while playing a game. Other than that this mod is great. I would’ve paid the extra $10 or whatever it is for the branded one if it didn’t come with this little glitch but oh well. Either way I love what this company does and love that there’s a whole community that makes after market products for these nostalgic devices. Thank you.
(Btw I don’t have brightness mod soldered because I’m going to be switching out the case again just so you guys know this is the standard brightness.)
Looks great. Super happy with IPS. Wasn't too difficult to install with a little help from youtube tutorials. Trimmed case myself (dremel, x-acto). No dead pixels that I can see. Elected to not install brightness button wire, but may go back later to do that when I get a hold of my soldering iron again.
Installed this screen in my AGS-001 and holy moly it is beautiful. The colors are so vibrant and the picture is crisp. The installation wasn't too tricky. Just be sure you have the proper tools gathered before you start and follow along with one of the many video guides on YouTube.
