Pairing these buttons with a new IPS modified case gave me issues with the bumpers, they stick because parts of the bumpers are too thick. I’ve been sanding them down, and it’s made it better, but it’s an annoying extra step.
I got them to help finish my build on a budget unhinged Sp and they work flawlessly and look so amazing!
Excellent quality, good feel.
Aftermarket GBA and GBA SP buttons will always have their issues, usually with the trigger buttons. That seems to be the case here, but I can't rule out that it might be the aftermarket shell, the prestige buttons, or both that are the problem. Strangely, the R trigger fit and worked perfectly with no issues. The L trigger would stick down when you press it, and not return to the "UP" position. I carefully shaved some of the button with a hobby knife, and used a small file to sand down both sides of the plastic near the holes where the spring and post go. I checked after each little bit of sanding because you don't want to remove too much. I finally got the trigger to function smoothly, but it was a hassle. The part I sanded is hidden, even in a transparent red shell, so it isn't noticeable.
In the end, I really like these buttons, but I think everyone might have a different experience with them. The face buttons are great, and the different colors are probably the biggest selling factor for me. Just be aware that no aftermarket buttons will ever feel and perform as good as those boring gray buttons that Nintendo used, and you may have to put in some extra time and work to make the triggers function properly.
The inside buttons have some nice texture and are fine replacements. Minus one star because, like the other review says, these trigger buttons don't click as well as the original ones. It was noticeable enough that I opted to keep my original triggers instead. Minus a second star because they come with one slider and not the other. It's annoying that all the buttons won't match around the outside.
The buttons have that rough new feel before you break em in. Very solid pieces, love the color. I just wish they sent me two different trigger springs instead of two of the same side lol.
