    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    *Translucent shell lets you see the inner workings of your DS.
    *Comes with all necessary screws and parts to completely re-fit the DS.
    *Looks cool and unique
    *The price has come down on these over the past year or so

    Cons:

    *Replacing a DS shell is quite difficult.
    *I've found that replacement DS buttons aren't quite as responsive as the original Nintendo ones.

    OtherThoughts:

    The hinge that seems to break on the Nintendo DS has been a big problem for a lot of people. Once the hinge breaks completely, there's not a lot you can do with it unless you are willing to try replacing the shell. Replacing the shell requires a lot of patience (it could take upwards of an hour) and some research. You can find good shell replacement tutorials on YouTube. Oh yeah, you'll also need the Nintendo Trigram screwdriver which you can get cheap on DX to remove the original Nintendo screws from the DS.

    Bottomline:

    If your DS is useless due to a broken shell and you think you can handle replacing it, give it a shot! It feels pretty good holding your new, modded, and working DS.
