There is some good news and some bad news regarding the BennVenn LCD mod kits for Atari Lynx. First the good directly from BennVenn...
The new batch of lynx lcd kits are finally ready to ship!
These are our latest ribbon design. You said it was a bit fiddly getting the ribbon into the pcb so we added a long tab for easier maneuvering.
Nice work on the text too 🙂
Preorders shipping now. We'll add the leftovers once they're all shipped and we do a count.
And now for the bad...Due to the current global chip shortage, a number of chips used in both the LCD screen and the PCB that converts Lynx signals to an image that can be displayed on the LCD have gone up in price. This has been a significant rise and can't easily be absorbed by keeping LCD kit prices the same. This means that the prices for these kits are expected to go up once the pre-orders are all shipped out, this will be in the vicinity of around $30USD.
