It's not a bad case by any means but I did notice a couple issues. There was a broken post inside that the silicone d-pad is supposed to be positioned on. Once the case was closed up, the mother board holds everything in place so it didn't cause any further issues. I also noticed the case took more effort than usual it seemed to close securely. I had to really tighten the screws a lot before the corners of the case were totally closed. Despite those issues the case works great.
Always have to do some minor shaving of plastic here and there for the final look, but that's not HandHeldLegend's fault. Everything looks good.
I had to modify it for the Funnyplaying IPS mod, the plastic was very smooth to cut and feels solid to the touch like an original case.
Nice tight fit and finish. I bought another brand case as well for a different gameboy and it has a little play in the bottom right corner of the case. However, this case fits like a glove and has zero play. Bonus that it comes with replacement glass. Screws also worked well. Will buy more.
The shell I received had a few issues, the silver was painted on a bright green plastic any spot that the paint wasn't perfectly on showed green, so all crevices and it was EXTREMELY noticeable. Next the holes from the back shell and front shell did not match up well, the power button needed to be trimmed because of how tight the guides were for it (to the point i didnt need **** to hold the motherboard to the back shell), the screws were tight and there was still gaps in spaces, and it feels cheaper then it is. Now for some minor gripes these are things some people won't care about. The screws are not the same size as oem and they arent try wing, the screen that it comes with is plastic not glass, and it is not mod ready. Alot of these things I mentioned I have never had an issue with using a different distributor for close to same price. I took a chance with this company since my normal supplier was sold out of silver shells, however I would rather convince my client to either pick a new color or to wait for my other supplier to get them back in.
I have been modding for awhile now and this is the first time I've had a case that I say "well, it works I guess" the case does not align well making the power switch much stiffer, it doesnt want to open when the board is in there, and there is a small gap on the bottom. The case is painted instead of full colored plastic which usually is okay except its a silver paint and the color inside it green so if it scratches at all it will be obvious. Some small nit picky things, it doesn't actually come with any stickers, handheld legend provides one, the shell feels very cheap (like dollar store cheap) and it feels like im putting the wrong console into it. (I triple checked, the mother board isn't a modded or swapped board its an oem gameboy pocket board.) Over all I would either buy a different shell or get one from a different sight.
