lNew again – Full Replacement Housing Case with Buttons Set for Wii Remote (White) Reviews

posted by buddasro1 on 12/08/2011 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
new casing
low cost
easy to assemble
has nintendo stamped into battery compartment
Cons:
parts are not interchangeable with OEM Wiimote,
buttons are molded differently.
no screws, don't lose any when disassembling the donor!
Other:
my puppy ate my Wiimote and my only recourse was this kit (or one of the similar ones offered here on DX). At first I wasn't sure if I could do it. Excercise care when opening the original that you do not lose any of the screws, as there are none included (not with mine anyway). the unit is pretty straight forward, the buttons can only go into their assigned slots because they are "keyed", the battery clip is easily re-inserted and the board snaps securely in place.
Bottomline:
buy this if you like the bright white casing on your wiimotes it is a great replacement housing. unfortunately my sensor must have taken too much damage from the dog chewing it (power button doesn't work anymore and the ir sensor doesnt function properly, oh well it was worth it).
