Install and shell modification was a bit of work but that was part of the fun. Works well on the TV, brings my nostalgia to a new level
One of these(black) I didn't do the Retro-Glow and it was fairly straightforward to build and put together both with the Rechargeable Battery mod(standard port, not USB-C) and Clean Amp v1.2. The semi-clear purple one with Samus on it was given to me so I put it to use and added Retro-Glow to this one. Only things I can say is that I have this electrical noise that I can't seem to get rid of no matter how I try to tackle it on both systems. Overall, awesome stuff guys!
Awesome kit! I would definitely recommend getting a q5 ready shell or it will be a lot of trimming though. Screen was easy to install after the shell was trimmed and picture is awesome! HDMI looks really good as well. Make sure to trim a bit of the top and bottom shell for the HDMI kit before installing and fit test often. Ordered a second kit already for a friend's upgrade.
This kit is fantastic. The screen is crystal clear and the hdmi out looks so good on the TV. I opted to trim the shell but I would have to say it was a giant pain and I would recomend buying a pre cut shell to put it in
I love this upgrade. The new screen is bright and gorgeous. I love the software options, ability to adjust sizing - and the HDMI out is fantastic. It' gets a bit cramped so make sure everything fits well and you do the needed pin trimming for thickness. Purchasing the IPS Ready Shell definitely helped. Also having a dremel on-hand for straight cuts. I love that the logo lights up too.
A fun build to upgrade your GBC that is laying around that can also breathe new life into the hardware with its hd output.
As a warning, even if you are buying an IPS ready shell you will need to do a little bit of carving for the micro HD port. This build also has two solder joints that could be scary to first timers. The cables provided also are freakishly long for their function so I would advise trimming them at least by a 1/3'rd if not more (but always measure first) if not using new wire altogether.
