Great Screen!

Color and contrast is remarkable and super clear! Easy to install if you just take your time and don't rush it! Test it every step of the way and you'll be good to go! Easy for a beginner like me to install and worth the time and money invested.

Works great, but some motherboards may have issues

Love the display! Childhood me would have lost it seeing something this beautiful. My screen has a weird issue where the last column of pixels displays garbage. I found out through searching that this is an issue on certain motherboards. It's not noticable when I'm in the zone playing. If you experience this, your screen isn't shot. Not sure if there's a fix or not

Looks amazing, easy to install

The ips screen looks perfect. Black levels are so good sometimes I can't even tell where the bezel ends and the screen begins!

Fantastic, but finicky

The reason i'm knocking it down a star is because it is super finicky to actually install, I broke the first LCD just trying to get it into a pre-cut shell (which will not be sold anymore according to Handheld Legend, because the cuts were not accurate for the IPS screen) I was offered a replacement, did the cuts that needed to be made, and it was as simple as that, it looks a million times better than the original, but i exercise caution to anybody who wants to do this installation, you need to be careful with it or it could break easily.
