Good Replacement for broken housings – Full Replacement Housing Case for NDS Lite with Buttons and Screws (Red+Black) Reviews

posted by lattesurf on 07/30/2008 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
The red looks pretty much like my genuine crimson casing.
Came with all the parts you need, top screen lens, bottom bezel, buttons etc.
Cons:
Built quality isin't the best. Have worked on fixing a few DS Lites before and there is a difference between original nintendo housings and these housings.
Most obvious part is on the bottom half of the housing, there are some gaps which can't be fully flushed together.
Didn't really like the "gloss" type of buttons.
Power & Volume sliders might need a little filing or sanding to allow a smooth slide. By itself, it was too tight.
Other:
Pretty hard to locate genuine oem housings, but if you need to change your housing due to the "broken hinge" you just got to.
From what i've found so far, housings with the white barcode stickers at the bottom usually are the real oem housings and would fit perfectly without any problems.
Bottomline:
Would be a nice change from your plain DS to something fresh. Not too bad for this price, couldn't get them anywhere cheaper.
