Lynx(II) Drop In LCD Kit
AtariGamer's install and review Here:
Finally an affordable back-lit LCD kit that McWont break the bank! Using half the full system current as the McWill kit means you'll get twice the runtime on your Lynx compared to a McWill modded system, on the same set of batteries.
Pre orders now open! PCB's and LCD's are here - we won't have time to assemble, program and test until mid September (due to the large volume of FreckleShack LCD orders due out). If delays will be a problem, please hold off from ordering for now.
When announcing this LCD kit, McWill said that my prices are so low because I'm using garbage quality LCD panels. This isn't true.
I've spent the time and money to compare the two variants, the genuine Sharp brand manufactured and assembled but also the Chinese assembled LCD screen using genuine sharp glasswork and screen driver electronics.
The difference is the Chinese panels use a Chinese manufactured ribbon cable, backlight and steel frame. The actual optics and electronics are identical between the two.
Which ever you choose, they'll be fully tested for dead pixels and defects before shipment. If you feel the need to choose the genuine sharp panel, I've made that option available.
NOTE: AtariGamer has designed and printed some custom 3d printed install frames. We suggest you purchase one to assist in the assembly. No mounting gear is included with the kit, you can choose to use double sided tape, foam, hot glue etc but for the best result we suggest purchasing the frame. Wire not included.
This kit is for the Lynx 2 only. We will have the Lynx 1 kit available soon (just waiting on a custom install frame to be designed and printed)
