I've used quite a few of these devices by now. They are repair parts for Nintendo Dual-Screen (DS) Lite game computers. This is a replacement for the touch-screen function for the 'lower screen'. A broken touchscreen is a common problem of an NDSL. Delivery is usually prompt (I've 'measured' between one and two weeks). The part is not expensive at all (there are few 2-nd sources..). The part 'just works': I've not seen any failed parts yet. The usual symptoms of an NDSL needing this part is that the touchscreen no longer works and shows visible 'cracks' on the lower screen. Do not automatically think the LCD itself is also 'broken': If the picture shown on the LCD is ok, the LCD itself is usually ok. If the touchscreen (broken) glass sheet is carefully and quickly removed, the LCD itself usually 'survives' without damage. Do not press on a broken touchscreen! There is a small piece of rubber between the touchscreen and the LCD itself. If a broken/cracked touchscreen is not forcibly pressed against the actual LCD the chance of scratching the lower LCD itself is small. In one aspect of my rating, the part has been geven the lowest rating: This is not an easy part to 'use'. Once installed, use is easy enough, but it is a tricky part to 'put into its place'. Replacing the touch-screen requires partial disassembly (bottom unit only..) of the NDSL. For that you need a tri-wing screwdriver (dx has them..). There are plenty youtube demonstrations about disassmbling NDSL-s. Use them. You need to: open the bottom unit of the NDSL, up to the point where the PCB can move. Open two connectors: The connector of the bottom LCD and the one (oh, so carefully...) of the touchscreen. I'll be verbose: the connector of the touchscreen is a 4-pins connector. It is very, very, very delicate. It is very easily damaged, and should be treated as such. After opening the two connectors, you can take out the entire bottom LCD + touchscreen module. Carefully separate the two, attempt to keep the distance rubber intact. Put the new touchscreen module in its place in the NDSL. Put the original bottom LCD back in place. Do mind finger prints on the LCD/touchscreen: They will be semi-permanent between the two glass sheets. Again -oh so carefully- re-connect first the LCD connector and finally (no force..) the touchscreen connector. You should want to recalibrate the touchscreen now.
Impression:Very good,Not for Beginners,spare/repair part for NDSL;
