Okay, so here goes. After a snafu that killed the first OG GBA I found, I finally found myself another working unit. At first my intention was to front-light mod the GBA, in part because the prices for the stand-alone kit to make one into a backlit model were astronomical, especially when you consider I was able to pick up the OG GBA for $15 USD with tax, but just the screen alone was more than $100 on eBay. Well, now I have a fresh working one, and I did confirm that the screen from the first unit that I was prepping for front light mod still works. However, the front-light kit panel decided to fall apart over time and I find myself unable to reassemble it. So, even if I went with that route again, I would have to buy another one. Having had a chance to test the unit with my retail copy of WarioWare Twisted, an argument could be made for the better ergonomics of the OG GBA to my SP , but I still want to light it in a non-ghetto fashion. So, way I see it is... Backlight screen mod + Newer screen tech shows measurable battery life improvement + More dramatic colors from the screen - Pricey as hell, especially if I have to resort to eBay for the parts - (somewhat) smaller physical screen than the original screen Front-Light Kit + Considerably cheaper to order, deploy and do + Even with optional application of LOCA, still less expensive than buying an AGS-101 screen by itself + No need for adapter cable - Not as pronounced a difference - Potentially increased battery usage - Some concerns relating to using such a GBA with rechargeable batteries, which I would fully intend to do ?????? Some... other method I'm not aware of? I'd rather not resort to using one of those link cable lights, in no small part because I found my fiancee's working e-Reader, and I know that wouldn't work in an SP, and wouldn't work unless I could leave that link cable port open for it.
