    Why on earth go that route when you have places that sell composite based LCD's like this?

    Price. The unit used in the link I found runs $50 shipped, all you have to do is remove it from its case and solder your wires. A quick glance at the link you provided (which seems to have some very nice and possibly higher-quality screens) runs $68 and only does 320x240. Eh, to each his own I'll be book-marking that site you linked just to have it - thanks for sharing.

    Understood. Please keep in mind though, if it's a pirate of one of our units the mod will not work. All the ones sold in stores (via Krogers) in the last two years are pirates.

    Greetings,

    I have the Flashback 3 and it is nice. I like it! I also have several of the original wood-grain atari 2600 units and every do often would hook one up to an old tv (not these days though but MIGHT try it here with a HDTV just to see what happens).. I have a large game collection as well. I seem to remember that many people were trying to make a portable version as you mentioned in the original post but no idea if it was done or not. There are also emulators out there that do a decent job for the pc.
