Screen itself is great but I bought the compatible case, and the mounting bracket was the incorrect size. So the mod took longer than it should have. and ended up not using the mounting bracket.

The item does work as intended.. however the Touch screen function is very flimsy, the ribbon cable actually broke after trying to connect it just once. I inquired about a replacement and was told I wasn't eligible for one cause I didn't report it to them BEFORE installation?? The ribbon broke after trying to connect it though? My touch sensor no longer works, so I can't change brightness at all or use any settings so I've had to learn how to solder.

Fantastic screen!

Had a couple troubles installing, but take your time and it'll be well worth it.
Skipped soldering button controls for screen brightness & modes, and happy to report the touch controls work great.
Many levels of brightness, incredible viewing angles and crystal clear picture.
Absolutely recommended. Thanks!

Easy Installation, Great Display

First time Game Boy modder here. This screen kit was easy to install with only a minimal amount of soldering required to get button screen controls, however it is completely optional as the included touch controls work great as well. The fact that this display is laminated also means you don't have to worry about dust getting caught between the screen and screen lens during installation. Definitely can recommend.
