I've ordered one. I thought it would be a really nice way to play Metal Gear
There is a backlit gbc clone that I've been considering getting.

Before complaining here, why not contact us so that we can repair it for you? These are 15 year old pieces of hardware, and although I personally test each of them with a few rounds of Teris before packing them up, problems may still pop up. We will GLADLY repair the A/B button issue for you. I just sent you an email.

I did email you about the issue. As I heard about you from a member here, who was spending a good amount of money to mod 3 systems, I felt that my experience should be shared. It's good that I did too, as you can see that expectations were not set correctly and now you're about to have another unhappy customer.

It all arrived today.
The Wonderswan Color and Game Boy Advance are both as expected, no issues whatsoever.
The Neo Geo Pocket Color came back with a good job on the light, but I am a bit disappointed that the screen lens came back scratched. That unit was brand new out of the packaging when I packed it up and sent it to you. I don't expect you to pay for it or anything because it's just the lens, but it's something that you should be aware of in the future. There are now noticeable scratches on what was a brand new screen.
To that end, I was under the impression that I was receiving a "new" screen lens for the Game Boy Color. The lens on the system I got back has significant scratching and permanent, noticeable scuffs. The lighting itself is again to expectations, but the screen lens is not satisfactory.
And finally, the Game Boy micro faceplate. The screen window arrived scratched, smudged, beat up, and dirty. It absolutely looks worse than the one that has been affixed to my system since September of 2005. I removed it immediately after turning the system on and could not be more dissatisfied.

Try handling things more carefully when you pack them for shipping. That's most likely when you unknowingly scratched it. That, or during the 6 hours of play time you logged before packing it up. I don't expect you to actually be more careful when handling your portables, but it's something that you should be aware of for future reference.
The GBC lens is indeed brand new. I suggest contacting the manufacturer if you're dissatisfied. You may also want to try handling things more carefully when you unpack them.
Wow! That's amazing, especially considering that it was also brand new! I recommend using your original faceplate if you're unhappy with the new one. You can use the new scratched, smudged, and beat up faceplate as a bumper sticker if you like, or simply flush it down the toilet.
I hope this resolves any issues that you're experiencing.

The plastic backer is what has the scratches, not the faceplate itself. Not sure what the super blurry pics are supposed to illustrate. Also, where's the "smudged, beat up, and dirty" part of your complaint?

I love this system. Funny that you Posted this today, as I just received a boxed NGPC a couple hours ago.
One thing I'd highly recommend to all NGP( C ) owners is the Neo Pocket Flashmasta flash cart. As some of the games can be hard to find and ridiculously expensive, this is a perfect accessory to own.
Oooh! Nice. This might be perfect for me as a more casual NGPC owner.

I came here from Famicommander's thread on Neo-Geo.com

I came here from Famicommander's thread on Neo-Geo.com (http://www.neo-geo.c...-Color-frontlit). I have to say that the whole situation sickens me a bit. I don't claim to know the people involved or understand the whole thing, but the way that Wiggy responded to Famicommander's email about the problems seemed very unprofessional. That really set a bad initial tone and put both sides in a confrontational/defensive posture.
