RickR Posted May 30, 2018 Report Share Posted May 30, 2018 I just got my Atari 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: Pros: 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 Atari Lynx reviews -- the McWill with VGA-out is a must. Cons: Spendy. 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. dgrubb 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
