Game Boy Backlight Display Mod V3 | DMG & Pocket
easy to install and looks great
This is the 4th time I have ordered from Handheldledgend because all of my friends with DMG's want me to backlight their consoles. I have not found the backlight/bivert mod online anywhere cheaper than here. The mod is very easy to do and as a novice solderer I was able to complete the mod on the first attempt with no issues. For the backlight mod you need the bivert chip, the difference in the pixel color saturation is astounding.
Mod worked as expected
Mod works as advertised and good price
You know, I think this mod is a super cool, economical, and cheap way to mod your GB or GBP to have a backlight without spending copious amounts of money. I think this is a quality product offered by HHL and I appreciate that they undercut most places with their price, but despite the fact that I rated this mod at a 4/5 stars, I simply cannot bring myself to give it a 5 because of the difficulty in installing it. I managed to successfully install this backlight but only after my first go in which I ruined a screen beyond repair. The second time I was able to safely install it with the experience of destroying my first screen, but I just think the mod is a little too difficult for a beginner and I think it would be a smart idea to somehow make that clear for those who are interested.
Even after all that, the mod, once properly installed makes my GBP beautifully lit with a blue light and I'm so glad I managed to pull it off. I would recommend this, however, to those with some modification experience.
