Excellent kit, went together well.
This is, by far, my favorite backlight mod so far. No loss in screen size, bright and vibrant colors. The refresh rate is fantastic. I actually have a tutorial on how to install this on my Youtube channel: SpeedDemon8706. This is the 2nd kit I've purchased. I do have an issue with the touch sensor for the brightness adjuster, but there's an easy work around that doesn't require any modifications. I would highly recommend this product.
The IPS screen was packed very well and the installation was easy to do once you prepared the mainboard for installation beforehand.
The screen itself is really bright, even brighter than an AGS-101 backlit Gameboy Advance. The viewing angles are really wide, so you'll always have a good view of the game image.
Definitely well worth the money as it is a giant step up from the regular light reflective screen on the original Game Boy Color.
Great screen, relatively easy to install if you use the 3D printed brackets.
Great screen, fantastic colors and fullsize is amazing. It is easy to install with the modified shell but alignment still took some work though and I had to modify the shell a bit more myself.
Now to the downsides.
Unfortunately the brightness adjustment sensor does not work when attached to the shell (IR window). Funnyplaying has not yet replied to my support email about this.
There is some minor screen tearing every once in a while with big scene changes e.g. when leaving a dungeon.
There were zero instructions supplied.
For reference, my motherboard is GBC-05 and I don't get any of the glitches on the right edge of the screen that some people have reported with earlier motherboard versions.
Installation was straightforward and fairly easy for the results.
Lining up the screen was the trickiest part. Takes some time and luck. I recommend having the screen on to test the positioning before sticking it down.
Greats color. Screen size is 1:1. The sensor to change brightness levels stopped working.
Fun and easy install. IPS display looks gorgeous.
I've waited a whole year for a good backlight kit to be available. After hearing about this full sized display kit, I decided to splurge on it. Installation was easy, and it works incredibly well! I found that the display needs to be aligned in the upper-right corner of the screen housing, and it's held in place with a foamcore spacer I cut. 10/10, would recommend!
I love my backlit GBC screen! It looks amazing and I can finally play at night.
The only downside was the complete lack of documentation explaining how to install the screen. Luckily, I found a helpful YouTube video.
It was a bit of work trimming the shell, and without any bracket it took a while to align the screen but it looks great. The best GBC backlight kit currently on the market.
Its a very good looking screen the only thing that was difficult was aligning the screen. Mines didn’t come out perfect but it still looks good. Next time I would turn on the screen first and add the double side tape on the actual screen first to see if it’s even and then add it on the shell. I added the double side tape on the shell first and then I put the screen on top and once I did that I noticed that it wasn’t aligned correctly and it’s almost impossible to actually align it after. I also made a YouTube video on my gameboy after the installation name gameboy color ips screen from funnyplaying
