I just got my Lynx back after using an eBay modder. I got the McWill LCD screen update, re-cap, and a new speaker (mine was blown). It's a very impressive upgrade. In many cases, it's like playing the games for the first time. Games like Pinball Jam with lots of motion go from "meh" to "Wow!" status.
Here's a few pictures of my collection. There are numerous videos on youtube showing before/after that really tell a better story than any picture I could take. I suggest checking those out.
So for anyone else interested, here are my pros/cons:
- Amazing picture quality. Very bright and easy on the eyes.
- I'm told battery life goes way up. But I haven't tested this. I just use an AC adapter on mine. I will not risk battery leakage in my Lynx.
- For anyone doing YouTube Lynx reviews -- the McWill with VGA-out is a must.
- Difficult to do. I sent mine out to an ebay modder, which was nerve-wracking and took a long time. But in the end, it worked out just fine.
Was it worth it? For me, absolutely yes. It turned a dim screen with obvious lines into something much much better.
