Received what I thought was a nonfunctional screen, instructions said not to solder anything or apply adhesive before testing it. Screen didn't work, but after contacting customer support I found out you have to solder a wire from the power contact on the ribbon cable to the power switch, and soldering in that case would not void the warranty. After I did that, it worked perfectly, although the enameled wire was too thin for my strippers and I accidentally pulled it apart trying to expose more of the ends.
Install was easy, but did need to be very precise when installing. A 3D printed bracket to use as a guide as other kits have would have been great
Easy installation with some online guidance.
The screen itself looks amazing, didn't catch there was colour combos in the product description which was a nice surprise.
Would 100% reorder this screen for future mods!
I will add though - It would be great to have instructions included for those new modding but that's a small admin issue
This was my first solder install and it was simple with the easy to follow directions. Not too sure why the second touch sensor is included with kit (as the ribbon cable already has one integrated) when it has the same function. A nice backup I suppose. Regardless simple install with no issues will be purchasing again
The screen looks and plays great. Installation was easy with only one wire needing to be soldered. The only way installation could be easier is with an alignment bracket instead of the stick gasket. I bought the ips ready shell and alignment by the instructions leaves is around 1 row of pixels to far to the left and & 1 column to high. This doesn’t cut anything off per say, but it is noticeable.
I bought this screen to go along with a Funnyplaying shell, the Famitsu Lens and some new buttons. I was nervous about soldering having never done it, but with there only being two solder points, it was done in no time. The screen quality is amazing and keeps this console relevant for another twenty years. I highly recommend this upgrade; you will be very satisfied.
