Shell Replacement for Nintendo DS Lite

Good service, rough product

The shell is decent at best. The cutouts for the power and volume sliders are rough and will need sanding if you’re replacing the back of the bottom shell. The cutout for the top screen is also not properly sized for the screen and leave small gaps about 0.5mm around the screen when assembled. There are some very noticeable defects from injection molding, melted globs of plastic, warping, etc on some of the parts. In my case, all of the defects mentioned (except the upper screen) were on back cover of the bottom shell. Thankfully, I didn’t need to replace that so no real harm done. All that said, the listing made it perfectly clear that this wasn’t up their standard and that it might require some sanding or modification so I knew what I was getting into.

All things considered, sub par product, but very good service from Handheld Legend. Shipping was quick, I got what I needed, and they were transparent about the quality of the product.

Decently good

Everything was excellent other than a few things. The stylus takes some force to remove from the bottom and the shell is strangely shiny and slippery.
