    I'm thinking of buying an upper IPS n3dsXL and wondering if it's possible to buy a lower IPS screen online and swap it out myself, to make a dual IPS n3dsXL.

    Lurking in the Void for a bit
    do bottom IPS screens even exist?
    I thought the bottom screen could only be a TN screen

    Yeah there are bottom IPS screens, people show them off on YouTube and you can see difference when they tilt the console around. Having a dual IPS 3DS would be great. I don't suppose there's an appropriate forum to ask if anyone is selling an IPS bottom screen, or a broken n3dsxl that has a functioning IPS lower screen?

    That would actually be another option for me. I could spend 200 AUD on this used upper IPS n3dsxl and then pay for a lower IPS as well, or buy a dual IPS in the first place. eBay has a few in America that will ship to Australia, but they are 450 AUD with postage and in are in used condition.
