    I bought a famicom from japan with the intention of getting it modded. I contacted a bunch of people asking about it and out of the few that did reply many tried to dupe me as I have never sent something off to be modded before. I found 8bitplus and saw he was in the UK so that was good but he was great to talk to always on the ball with replies and fair pricing too. When the job was done I got in Progress photos and a video showing me my console working and all that he did to it. I asked for a discreet mod and discreet is what I got and I was SUPER impressed. The console was sent back to me in great time and I got it out of the box to find that the working console I sent came back working but SO MUCH better than before. I cannot recommend Neil enough and will almost certainly use his services again.

    Neil did some work on my Neo Geo AES recently and i can’t fault his service. i had a sound issue so i sent the board to be re-capped which didn’t work but he then advised that it might be a chip at fault so he replaced some of the sound chips, even using one from his own board and eventually fixed the problem. he also did some other mods for me such as the RGB trace cut and installed a Unibios. very helpful, incredibly knowledgeable and his work is spot on…he even hand delivered my system as he lives fairly local to me!. will defo be using again if i need any repair work. thanks again 🙂

    Neil did a fantastic job recapping my turbo duo. He also did the region mod and rgb mod the picture quality has never looked so good. A pleasure to do business with and highly recommended

    I’ve just had my PC Engine Super CD-Rom2 Re-capped and RGB modded by Neil. What an excellent job hes done! The picture quality is now excellent, i’m hearing music and speech in games that i’m sure wasn’t there prior to the fix and games seem to load faster. I mentioned to Neil that the system struggled to read games on CD-R and he adjusted the tracking and focus of laser as it was a little off and now everything plays perfectly. Excellent comms, super quick turn around and very reasonably priced, i cant recommend him enough. I’ll be sending all my future console mods,faults and restoration work to Neil.

    I had a Sega CDX that was no longer able to play Sega CD games, and Neil was able to successfully troubleshoot and replace the faulty laser / motor. It works perfectly now! Would recommend to anyone.

    I got my Neo Geo AES upgraded with the latest bios, my power connector fixed and a nice red LED fitted to the reset button. All for a very reasonable price. Everything came back well packaged within a week and I couldn’t be happier. I would definitely recommend 8bitplus and would be happy to use them again. Thank you.

    I sent Neil a faulty Sega CDX to repair the AV port. A Highly recommended repair service and a fast turnaround. Most appreciated, thanks:)
