Would recommend this LCD to anyone looking to upgrade there Game Gear.
The board and screen are very well made and the instructions are very straight forward and explained well.
Totally revived my old and worn out Game Gear. It is definitely not for folks who have little experience soldering, but after careful work and rechecked connections the outcome is amazing. My handheld is once more a joy to play.
I lucked out with my particular motherboard and did not need to remove a lot of components as the single chip ones. Even though it was simpler, this mod was very timely and requires a lot of double checking of your steps. I received version 2 of the Mcwill kit and found the assembly to be straightforward though having to align and solder the board into place was trial and error. I had the screen slightly misaligned and took about three attempts of adjusting to feel like it was properly set. The wiring can get messy if you are not carful. I also decided to install the VGA port as well and that makes the modding even more timely. Overall I am very pleased with the results. I'm excited to have the GG handheld running as it really makes the mod worth it if you up for the task!
This screen is amazing and actually makes me want to play game gear games. The old screen works but isn’t very inviting. I did a side by side of the original and the McWill for my wife and she said “why is that one so dim?” It takes a little work and some stressful fine soldering skills. You’ll also need to supply the wires to connect everything. If you’re ok with that then this is a no brainer buy. The colors are bright and the screen is super crisp. You really can’t tell how amazing it is unless you see it in person.
I figured I would be able solder the LCD screen to my game gear without many hiccups. I though if I had a proper instruction manual and the wires to go with it, I would be no sweat. However, I was sorely mistaken. I was surprised there was no such instruction manual to be found, and even worse it didn't come with any wires (though I didn't read much on the product description). If you have good soldering knowledge and know what wires you need to use, I feel you should be able to pull this off. However I was left in the dark, and had absolutely no idea what I was doing.
