The shell I bought fit together perfectly and I was able to easily transfer the logic board and power/sound boards into it with minimal hassle. It looked great when finished and am very happy with the result.
The replacement see-through black shell I got is beautiful and feels great. I do love it.
However, due to the nature of the clear black finish, the back light leaks through the sides of the display quite badly leaving it looking quite ugly, even with the original, rubber, square surround. Wish the shell came with a replacement surround that masked the backlight.
The shell looks amazing. It feels great and sturdy. The color is beautiful and it’s an all around pleasure to look at. My only complaint was it was a bit iffy to screw together with the included screws for whatever reason. I included a picture of when I was struggling to get it to fully close up. It kept pulling apart like the screws weren’t threading or going in all the way so I had to use some of the original screws to get it to stay together. I’d definitely buy it again, though! Just be mindful of putting all the screws in and really getting them secured fully.
I had to replace my old shell because the screws got stuck and I had to mangle the shell just so I could open it and recap it and the new shell was great.
The shell feels great in the hands, still waiting to complete my screen mod as I am pending delivery of my BennVenn screen but after doing a shell swap with the donor system with the Clean power board and audio Amp feels like a new system.
The shell itself is of good quality, as well as the buttons and membranes. Just make sure everything lines up correctly and it will look beautiful. As other reviews have mentioned, it would be best practice to pre-screw all the screws into each post. The screws themselves are fine, but if you have a screwdriver that’s too small, they will strip. After I got the correct size screwdriver, it was a breeze. The screen glass on mine laid perfectly with zero bubbles as other have mentioned. Overall, very satisfied with all products and at a much cheaper price than the alternatives. On my re-shell, I got the translucent black buttons and the dark gray screen glass— for those interested in that combo. The game cartridge slides in all the way as intended. I did not do any screen mods on my unit. The buttons depress firmly compared to my old membranes.
