    I cannot distinguish these buttons from the originals. The new L+R button give a feeling of having your NDS a few days again. I hope they last longer than the Nintendo parts. You need to have SMD solder skills. A normal soldering iron will not go. You really need a small soldering tip to do the job. Buy a magnifier as well. Warn people before selling ... Read more

    Really good price when you order 5+ pairs at a time (better than what I could find on Ebay). I use a SMD rework station to remove the old defective switches after the board is removed from the console. Usually the best temperature I find is a setting of approx. 230-240 C any higher and I find the board blisters alittle. The plastic on the switch tends ... Read more

    Pefect solution for a non-working shoulder button. They are great and have been working perfectly for past few months. The shoulder button works like it was new. No more temporary fix by blowing air on the button. They are just a tad-bit small than the original ones (nothing to worry though, they got soldered nicely and worked well) Very hard to fix ...

Board adopt any necessary before welding adopt a sponge to clean the pond in excess do not drink coffee before welding: P, the buttons are ... Read more

    These are perfect replacements for DS consoles that have broken or defective L/R buttons. There is very little noticeable different between these and the original DS button once everything is reassembled. Many DS (dis)assembly videos are available on the internet to guide you through the process. You must know what you are doing to install these. They ... Read more

    I had to get these to replace a bad L trigger (Metroid Prime Hunters, lol), and they did the trick perfectly! TINY TINY TINY. You're going to need a nice desk with good lights for this. Maybe even something you can bring closer to eye-level. Here's a hint to install these little buggers: Use needlenose pliers to slowly rock the old switch back and forth ... Read more

    They're nice. I can't tell which is better, the factory default ones or these ones. I had to fix my R button because it didn't work, but I decided to swap both of them for these since I might as well. Good if you don't like your buttons now Very hard to install. Compared to the on/off switch (which I also had to install) it was way harder (the on/off ... Read more

    Fits perfectly, nicer clicky feel than original ds lite buttons.. o.O dirt cheap from a person used to repair soldered components, it's pretty easy to install, was expecting some trouble but worked the first time None, except maybe it has to be installed but that's not a con for me. I wish I had both buttons changed since it's not the same clicky feel ... Read more

    Very cheap and the postage is really fast it is a lot smaller than the picture looks and a little hard to install When your R/L buttons start acting up, and blowing doesn't fix the issue... if you're confident with a soldering iron, and are willing to accept the risk involved, then go for it. Better order more than you actually need. It's not like the ... Read more

    WORKS GREAT. These are SUPER hard to find, and NEVER this cheap! Finally, I don't have to tear apart broken DS's I buy second hand, I just have these! my shoulder buttons always go out in every handheld I own (besides my PSP... hm...) so these are a damn GODSEND. They work GREAT so far, for me. Must be soldered. Not really a con, but important to know ... Read more
