    L+R Buttons Switches for NDS Lite

    posted by VOC1794 on 02/13/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    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.
    Cons:
    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. B...

    Great price for the switches

    posted by 961sparky on 11/16/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    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 app...
    Cons:
    The plastic on the switch tends to crisp alittle if you use a rework station, i.e. the temperature that melts the lead free sol...

    Working Great!

    posted by silverspoon on 10/28/2011 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Novice  (still getting used to it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    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.
    Cons:
    They are just a tad-bit small than the original ones (nothing to worry though, they got soldered nicely and worked well) Very h...

    Must have soldering experience

    posted by Kayvon on 12/02/2010 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    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 in...
    Cons:
    You must know what you are doing to install these. They are difficult to get to with a soldering iron. (I ended up using hot ai...

    Might be a must?

    posted by Kyosama66 on 09/03/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I had to get these to replace a bad L trigger (Metroid Prime Hunters, lol), and they did the trick perfectly!
    Cons:
    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-le...

    Nice, but hard to install

    posted by GoblinTechies on 07/13/2010 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:
    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
    Cons:
    Very hard to install. Compared to the on/off switch (which I also had to install) it was way harder (the on/off took one attemp...

    Great!

    posted by swordedge on 03/03/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    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
    Cons:
    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 s...

    Must be soldered, AMAZING PRODUCT

    posted by punkonjunk on 01/02/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    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 GO...
    Cons:
    Must be soldered. Not really a con, but important to know - it doesn't just snap in. you could possibly disassemble and add the...
