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
Other:
- 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.
