Bringing old game gear into modern times

Initially bought for one game gear that went bad and had multiple issues. Fixed a number of issues, but it still had issues after installing clean screen (no fault of the clean screen), so i had a good working but stock game gear that i installed the clean screen into. Looks and works great. Nice product

Mark Ray

This is an excellent upgrade with a plethora of added features, it does however require a fair amount of skill to install correctly. I highly recommend the accompanying flex kits for the easiest (but certainly not "easy") installation. If you don't have fine soldering skills, find someone who does, as although this isn't the hardest installation, it certainly ranks in the top three. It is also important to know which motherboard revision you have prior to ordering the flex kit.

So easy!

Just as the title says. This mod was so easy I’m actually impressed. I was ready for a good amount of time doing this, I think I spent more time setting up my area than I did installing this. The wireless ribbons is what made this mod so trivial. Along with not having to solder to pins which is always the make or break point of modding a Game Gear. Highly recommend.

Installs great but has issues

Install is much cleaner than the V1 board, IPS panel looks great with it, major issues being the incompatibility with SMS games and certain GG games when using an everdrive. You will be forced to modifiy your everdrive if you want this board to work completely, or modify the cleanscreen board and open up a potential for frying the GG ASIC. If you're happy with your V1 board I would stick with it until this issue is resolved with a proper board revision instead of a mostly untested, hacky, circuit.

First mod done!

Worked beautifully fit perfect and arrived fast and intact

Easiest Game Gear Install I have ever done

This was an extremely easy install I strongly recommend picking up the wire free ribbons. I have done many Sega Game Gears and would guess it takes about an hour to do the old way of soldering wires every where, maybe 45 minutes no issue. First time doing this kit and it took me literally 15 minutes. Extremely impressed!
