    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    - Sturdy case, good enough for its use

    - Without looking at minor details, almost looks like the real thing

    - Comes with replacement buttons, rubber pads for the buttons, etc

    Cons:

    - Does NOT come with: Two metal hinges, volume control slider, instruction manual

    - Parts need to be sandpapered down to fit, especially around the hinges and the small slit you feed the VERY FRAGILE bottom screen ribbon through

    - Plastic can bulge at certain spots (namely the top half) if you screw in the nails too deep

    - Bad looking "Nintendo" sticker for the front

    OtherThoughts:

    - Requires a tri-wing screwdriver to take out the OEM case

    - Comes with the serial number sticker for the back, but does not have laminate like the original

    - Not all OEM pieces fit well on the case

    - Extremely hard to take the metal hinges in and out - CARE and STRENGTH is needed. This is not the fault of the case and its design - merely a warning.

    Bottomline:

    Broken hinges? Scratched up DS case? Go for it. Good stuff for the price.

    Have PATIENCE while doing this.
