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

    Pros:
    It's cheap, and they have a bigger selection of colors available. And, the parts are interchangeable with the original parts, which you will be using a lot of, because these are very poor quality!
    Cons:
    - NO HINGES! You must press out your old ones, and attempt to line them up and press fit them into this case. Good luck gettin...

    Great replacement for repairs or modification

    posted by iheartmaths on 12/09/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Nice bright colours, includes lots of spare screws and springs, useful for if your higne has cracked or if you just want to change the appearance of your DS. Even compatable with the official Nintendo case pieces so you can mix and match. Unbeatable price.
    Cons:
    Plastic doesn't feel the most durable, some molding errors requiring light sanding - nothing major though.
