    Notes

    • This product has a slightly smaller viewing area than the original GBC screen. Custom glass lenses sized for the smaller viewing area are available in black and white
    • Center the LCD using double-sided tape
    • We recommend placing the touch controller at the top of the console, opposite to the infrared sensor
    • This LCD is also used in the Neo Geo Pocket Color backlight kit with a different ribbon cable
    • Avoid placing pressure directly on the screen. Hold the edges of the drop-in kit carefully when installing it in your console. Do not pinch the screen between your fingers when manipulating it
    • Too much pressure can permanently damage the screen and result in rows of dead pixels. 

    Warning

    • LCD may break under pressure or if dropped. We recommend you exercise care when installing this product.

    Great screen, easy install

    Great little screen, and easy to install. As the description says, no soldering or modding required.

    The touch sensor to control the brightness seems to work on my solid purple GBC even though it’s not on the IR sensor side. It’s nice because I didn’t have to remove or cover the IR sensor.

    The only problem was that I was initially sent the wrong screen kit so I was unable to install the first screen I was sent. But after emailing customer service they sent me a label to send it back and sent me the correct screen kit shortly after. Not ideal that I was sent the wrong screen at first, but the process to return it and get the correct one was very smooth.

    Simple Install

    This kit was pretty simple to install. There were a few minor problems I had with it:

    1. It would be nice if there were install instructions on this site. Most videos are for slightly different models. Even though its not hard to figure it out, it would be nice if there was an official guide here.

    2. Like others mentioned, the touch light sensor is on the wrong side. I have an Atomic Purple case so it still works through the transparent plastic, idk if it would work through an opaque case.

    3. The 3D printed bracket is very nice for simple placement. However, I had to make a modification to the bracket. It would not fit in my OEM atomic purple case: at the bottom there's a small bump so I had to cut a gap in the bracket in order for it to fit. (Attached a photo)

    Otherwise it was a simple install and works great so far. These are minor inconveniences so still giving 5/5.

    Hi Ian,

    Thank you for this complete review!

    We are aware that we need to update quite a few tutorials for a few products. We are working on this.

    For the sensor on the other side, it will indeed work with opaque shells too! We actually prefer this position for the sensor as it lets you keep the IR sensor!

    Thank you again for this great review!
