very gameboy

gameboy shell good

Adam Senyk
Quality shell that could be better

The shell itself is a great replacement shell if you’re looking to spruce up you gameboy. However, the rubber **** covers I received did not contain any adhesive, which is a bit annoying.

Sydney Dryier
Good and durable.

I feel like most GBA SP shells are pretty decent nowadays but for what it's worth i bought a translucent shell and it didn't break or crack at all during installation despite me being very rough with it when putting the hinges in.

Shell problems

This was missing the volume piece. Really bummed about that. Also the screws for this are rounded and not flat like the originals so the rubber gummies that cover them stick out and the shell doesn't close all the way. Bummed about that as well.

Good but Slight Defections

This product is very good overall, but there are some minor defects in both shells I got that bother me. Both shells came with surprisingly soft screws. I stripped a few and had to be much more careful during my second reshelling. But I never stripped or even came close to damaging OEM screws. My NES shell doesn't close all the way, and it has a slight protrusion on the screen area (although I did manage to scrape it away). My black shell came with really wobbly buttons.
In the grand scheme of things, these are minor imperfections but they are noticeable enough that I can't ignore them.

Thought it was gonna have color

It is barely visible and i wish they could print a design with it
