Awesome product and upgrade!

Great quality and easy install. Looks great too. I enjoy the “smooth” setting too. I would highly suggest getting the slinging bracket though. I did not and my screen is ever so slightly tilted. Not anything to do with the product itself though.

Siiiiiiick Screen!

Tight easy install, looks great! Would be nice if it came with a backup ribbon cable just because its very delicate and I could see accidentally breaking it easily. But mine did just fine first try.

Fantastic Product (save for one nitpick)

Its easy to install and looks great. Theres no sodering required except for the speaker which only takes a few seconds to do.

My only real issue is at the time I purchased this, the optional 3D printed bracket wasn't linked on the store page like it is on other sites. I went hunting for it and bought the wrong one. That mistake (and a few wasted dollars) aside I'm ultimately pretty happy with this product.

If you are interested I'd strongly recommend watching some videos of installs and reviews if you haven't already so you can see if its right for you.

Aligning bracket?

Is an aligning bracket included? Can one be purchased? Is there a recommended way to modify screen bezel to accommodate larger screen? Thanks!

Great quality, hard to center.

This product really changes the Gameboy experience. My favorite part has got to be the pallette and brightness control in place of the contrast wheel. My only problem was the fact that I was sent some adhesive which made it extremely difficult to get the screen correctly positioned without breaking it since there are no brackets and once the adhesive has bonded with the screen, you cannot remove it without some serious patience and a heat gun.

Great Screen.....but

The FunnyPlaying kit is top notch, but I do have some complaints. Having to remove part of the screen bezel was a pain. The RS/HHL shells are not made to account for this. Having to use the gray screen (versus the black one that came with the RS/HHL shell) that came with this kit ruined the aesthetic I was going for too. Also, the lack of a purchasable aligning bracket made this more finicky to get it lined up just right.
