      It doesn't glow at all.

      I don't know if mine is the only one that is broken, but when I first installed it, it lit up for a moment, but then I had to keep pressing the select button to get it to light up, or after that it didn't light up at all. I contacted support but no response. Don't buy this one. The sensitivity of the switch is very poor when you install this kit in the first place. In my case, the right side of the cross key did not respond no matter how many times I tried.

      Thanks for your review! Support tickets are generally answered within 1 to 3 business days (M-F) pending current ticket volume. They will get back to your support ticket as soon as they can if they haven't already!

      Cam in too bent to work

      packaging on this was abysmal resulting in the ground pin being too bent to properly connect. total waste of my money

      Thanks for reaching out! I'm sorry to hear that the item arrived in poor condition. Please reach out to so we can get this resolved for you!

      Absolutely awesome, the solder points werent too bad and everything works as intended. The setup menu is a little confusing but not too bad if youre looking at the site while you do it. The only reason 4 instead of 5 is the board came slightly kinked, which has made the a button press a lot less sensitive, although I realize that it was probably just from shipping . But it still looks great esp on my little rgb stand I made

      Not worth

      So the RGB board came in like curved kinda like in a wave motion, which i thought wouldn't be a problem (thinking the solder points would it flat down) till i soldered it on to the mother board then realized i had to press the A button hard to get it to work and the other buttons are being blocked by the board somehow like i can't get them to respond. I guess if you get the board delivered properly to you not just in a bag it would've been good?

      I'm sorry to hear of the issue! Please message us at so we may get this resolved for you.

      Retroglow FTW!

      When I first found out about handheld legends and the Retroglow RGB flex boards, I know I just had to get them in all my handheld systems.

      Started with the DS Lite and omg this is amazing !

      Amazing controls ! Amazing lighting ! Could not be happier !

      The install was very easy as well.
