Glad to be back playing my NES, uninterrupted without any extravagant methods to get the game to start up. Every game starts on the first try. Worth it!

5 Star Review Now I'm playing with power....again
Excellent product, works like a charm. The connection to the circuit board is a bit tight so you gotta really force it on there, but once its once its on your golden. Thanks Lukie Games.

2 Star Review NES 72 Pin Connector
Arrived quickly and sealed in a plastic bag, but did not make my NES any less finicky once cleaned/installed. Speaking of the installation, I found getting the connector onto the motherboard VERY difficult, and felt like I was going to break something in the process. Finally got it on, but also found that the degree to which you tighten the screws on the outside of the system (the tightness with which you sandwich the system's halves together) greatly affects the spring and lock mechanism that houses the game, and that unless slightly undertightened, the screws would cause the mechanism not to lock in the down position at all . The product is what they say it is, it just did nothing for me :(

5 Star Review Best thing to happen to retro gaming!
This pin connector saved several of my nes systems. I thought the systems were ready for the trash pile. I ordered some of these and gave it a shot. Wow! It was pretty easy to install and the systems play like new! I would advise anyone who loves nes systems to get some of these. I even have a few for backup. Great product!

5 Star Review perfect
easy enough install. if you know how to use a screwdriver then you can do it. all my games work great now. no more flashing or gray screen. no more freezing or games glitching up. for $10 you can't go wrong. it really really works. it is really tight now. hard to get games out, but i'm sure thats just beacuse it isn't broken in yet.

5 Star Review Perfect!
If you have an old NES system that produces those pesky white lines throughout your game, this will fix it right up! ...if you know how to install it. ;D Very high quality part, it's been a full year since I've installed this and I haven't had to blow on a single cartridge since.

5 Star Review Prefect Solution for the dreaded "Flashing Blue Screen"
One day I turned on my 20+ year old NES and was horrified to see nothing but a flashing blue screen(?). After a little research I ordered a a new 72 pin connecter, after a nerve-racking installation ("Please let this work!!"), my baby is running like new! I hardly ever have to blew in the carts anymore!

3 Star Review Great quality but with a few draw backs.
The connection with the game and board is perfect once you get it on. That is the problem, getting the connector on. It is very tight and can be scary for some one who is not used to using a lot of pressure onto it. After one does do that, you are good as gold. Fantastic item but the price is a bit exaggerated for it I could see myself paying $6 for it without the shipping. If you are in a pinch and this is your only option, Go for it.

5 Star Review Buy me for Read Issues
If you are having read issues, this is your fix. these work fantastic when you replace a worn one out. some people have been reporting that they are loose, this is NOT the fault of the distributor or the manufacture. DO NOT TOUCH THE PINS! unless you know what you are doing dont touch the pins at all! putting pressure on the back of the pins, even just picking it up funny, can push the pins forward and down, lowering the connectors ability to funtion. then you have to wiggle with the game to get it working. there are fixes for this online, but it is better to not be rammy and take the extra 15 seconds to make sure your safe with your new reader. These work Awesome! i bought 3-4 just to make sure i have backups for when i wear em out.
