WHAT A GOOD COMPANY!! Shells are nice, screens look great!

I got 2 shells, Translucent Purple and a Glacier. Both came in immaculate condition. I bought two IPS screens with them. I had to trim out some of the glacier to get the modded IPS screen to fit (they make IPS cases to accommodate this issue), but it was super simple. THEY LOOK GREAT and installed really easy.

On to the screens. One of my screens actually came with a broken ribbon cable, the company responded within 2 days and had another one shipped to me. They upgraded the protection on the next shipment to ensure this didn’t happen again. Came in working perfectly. They both were easy to install and my wife and I love our “new” Gameboy SPs!!

10/10 products and even better company. Have a gameboy advance I might be doing next :)

Pretty Cool

I got the shell and it looked even better in person. I got the blue raspberry or something like that but it is a really nice case. It was shocked to find out that it is even glow in the dark how cool is that!! (Does not come with white as shown in the photo

IPS Modified Shell for Game Boy Advance SP

Excellent shell

Looks super clean, feels nice. Ips screen that I got fit snug as a bug. Would highly recommend.

IPS screen review

Crystal clear, insane brightness, easy to install. Definitely worth the investment.

Really good for my first aftermarket shell

I did my first shell swap and it was with the translucent purple shell, it turned out really well
