I ordered it in, and how long it took to get here was exactly what I was hoping for, but the connectors were all rusted and corroded. Lukie Games is a GREAT website. And even though I did get a poor quality item, I will always order from this store! I probably just got a unlucky item!

This is kind of the way the pin connector should have been done. I made sure to open and clean my games before trying this out. The only thing I have noticed is if you push the game in too much, they won't work. Perhaps a modification to the design could prevent the game from being allowed to be pushed in too much. I never push the game down after putting the game into the console. I even made a modification to my console so you cannot push the game down which again is probably the way the console should have been designed anyway. There only has a light "death grip", nothing that moving the cartridge left and right to pull it out won't fix. I'm totally fine with it gripping the cartridge because that friction actually helps keep the cart and your system clean which again is a flaw in the original NES design.

Just what my NES needed
Prior to moving I found the NES in the basement and took it muwahaha! Clearly it needed some TLC. I carefully cleaned it.I can't believe how many sugary liquids made their way inside without it breaking. After some tinkering clearly the pin connector needed to be replaced. I could see this task being frustrating for some one who doesn't know their way around electronics and such. Having epic tinkering skills isn't necessary though! My NES is back to working quite well. Now to show my eldest the first console that blew my mind.

helped some
this item does help a lot with game freeze and start up, however it was not a total fix to my system, still have to blow into the games and wiggle them around to get them to read. but does help some so worth the ten bucks to bring life back into a old system. some reviews said hard to install, mine slid right in with no trouble.

Fixed the problem
This 72 pin connector is great. I bought it from this website because of all the good reviews about it. The first time I installed it, it didn't work. I figured I just didn't install it very well. So i opened up my nintendo again and reinstalled it. This time it works almost perfectly. I say almost because it doesn't work when i push down on the cartridge. No problem though because it works perfectly when it is not pushed down. I don't know if this is a problem with the product or if I just didn't install it well which is why I give this a 4 star rating. Overall I would recommend anyone who needs this to buy it from this site.

Amazing price with delivery. Made my original nes machine just like new. I couldn't be any happier. I would highly recommend this product and this company. Mr nes quit working several years ago but I knew someday technology would do along and I'd get it fixed. After I got my part (pretty quickly I might add considering it came from Miami and had to go to mud Canada) I looked on YouTube where I found someone calling himself ganglym with THE best close up instructions showing me how to completely dismantle, ckean, and repair it.

Delivered to the house quickly. Took 5 minutes to install. Worked perfectly first time. Like a brand new unit. No more blowing on the games etc.
