The black crystal clear ips modified prestige shell for the gameboy advance works and looks great.

Robert Gonzalez
Almost perfect

It looks great, the only reason I dont give it 5 stars is because the screws were so difficult to work with. It's almost as if they weren't meant for this shell, even though it came with it.

Almost perfect

The shell looks amazing. The only reason I'm not giving it 5 stars is because the screws it came don't **** in well. It almost feels like they weren't made for the shell. After some time I was able to get the screws in, but it took more effort than it should have.

I hope only this shell was a lemon

So everything was going great until I tried to put both shells together and it wouldn't fit and I was using only the GBA board. Keep in mind no screen, no cables, nothing else. Only the board and the shell and it wouldn't close. I had to trim here and there just to get the board to fit. The thing is that it still isn't a good fit and is loose in one of the sides. I like to believe this is a lemon shell or something.

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

Looks clean

Does what it needs to do and looks amazing while doing it. Can be a finger print magnet now but I think the end results make it worth it.

Pro tip: don’t try to use the OEM hardware to **** into this shell. There’s a lot more resistance and can highly risk stripping those screws. The hardware it comes with screws in a lot more smoothly!

These shells hit just right. Absolutely love when customers choose a crystal clear option for their custom build! I tend to pre-drill holes so install goes easier. Those **** posts are TIGHT. Overall, love these shells and the quality! A+++
