Can't vote from experience because I don't have one. I'd like one, especially as it looks like they will be chippable, as I almost always play handheld and the screen upgrade would be sweet. Hard to justify the price right now, will see how our circumstances go. Already considering a Steam Deck which is another complicating factor.

Also who the fuck let you make a poll? :P

I advised it to a friend who does not own switch, cause for the price and still available like bread in france it was definitely worth it.

But for peeps that own a switch I will never advise it simply cause beside a screen and let say a bit of battery that kind of all.
Especially if you only use it portable mode you scrap the Dock with it's wonderful ethernet port. /s

Yes of course if you have the budget for it. After playing on OLED Switch for a week I can no longer go back to playing with the inferior LCD screen on the old switch, gonna keep the old switch for dock mode and use OLED as the main gaming device on the go!

Plus when I first tried out the OLED screen on the Vita I thought to myself how great it would be to play Nintendo games on a vibrant OLED screen and now I get to experience it in full glory and I am not disappointed:D

I voted no, even if I would have wanted one, it’s not worth it. I already have the original switch. If the oled really didn’t add extra power to the switch it’s not worth it. They should have made it a little more powerful the way they did for the 3ds with the n3ds.

I play completely docked so a bigger brighter screen would have to be bought externally anyway, maybe when they make one with more horsepower or something :/

For me, no. It doesn't offer the homebrew capability in the simple way a v1 does. I wouldn't feel comfortable cracking one open and pissing about soldering. My opinion is based on simplicity and the fact I mostly play docked so the OLED screen is kinda moot for me. Just my 2p's worth and I think some will find counter arguments for it

No way, Jose; if one can, try to nab a launch-model Switch. Not only would the docked, TV output be almost identical since Nintendo failed to beef up the internals whatsoever, but the launch model has the RCM exploit for wonderful, wonderful homebrew.
