Purchase the clear blak (no text) version to fit a Funnyplaying retro pixel kit.
The fit for the kit is great, nothing needs to be cut it is all perfectly precut so you can just drop it in. In the case of the clear blak the plastic is quite nice and it feels solid. The metal shielding at the back comes presintalled and with a plastic to prevent scratches.
The buttons are very bad, buttons are pressend by themselves sometimes. The START and SELECT buttons are the worse. They seem to be the prestige buttons but seems the original ones are better.
Be careful with the screws and do not overtighten or unscrew too much as the post may get bad with time. The color of the shell is not as clear as seen on the pictures it is actually darker and not that much see through as I expected based on a clear black shell I have for the GBC.
Overall recommend them if you find they are on sale and not regular price.
The shell itself is very high quality and feels nice. However it's not perfect. In the shell i got there are 2 small black spots on the side. Not something very noticeable but still.. The rubber pads that came with it were way too soft to the point of being practicaly useless (in my opinion). And the screws that came with the kit were too wide and needed some forcing.. Overall none of these are big issues, and the shell is high quality and came fast. Would recommend.
OEM quality replacement.

Made installing the IPS screen a breeze since I didn't have to do any of the trimming and potentially mess the shell up. 100% recommend this for anyone installing an IPS screen in a DMG Gameboy.
Really great product, I had to do a bit of trimming around the scroll wheel but thats because I misplaced the IPS rubber block. Overall great!
