  • It Works!

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:

    It's a working upper LCD screen. Makes the difference between unusable DS and usable, so well worth $15.

    Cons:

    Pain in the A$$ to solder the speakers and re-install. While mine arrived in good condition (no shipping damage), it has two pixels stuck on. One annoying red and a barely noticeable blue/green. Also, screen seems to flicker some times on certain screens, but looks fine in general.

    OtherThoughts:

    Poorly designed LCD ribbon cable on original DS lite is what caused the problems in the first place. A little slip while trying to replace the DS housing and you need a whole new LCD just because the cable is creased.

    Ridiculous that damaging a $.25 ribbon cable (easily done too) requires replacing a $15 LCD.

    Bottomline:

    If you have the tools and steady hands to solder the speakers to the solder points on the LCD ribbon cable (or have someone to do it for you), it's $15 well spent to make a DS lite usable again.
