Excellent product but even better customer service!!

I came across an old but functioning Game Gear and a Gameboy that were in dire need of a shell swap. I am a small business owner myself and realize that some of your working days are made up of customer follow up and this company stayed in communication with me even if I didnt respond. I am hard at work just like they are and have to find time when it allows. The product fit PERFECTLY!!! The follow up to make sure the client was happy is a testament to this company's work ethic. Product is great but customer service is priceless.
Thank you very much.

Something I've always wanted

I bought the purple shell for my Majesco Game Gear and I love it. Unfortunately I screwed up while trying to put in an LCD Backlight so the unit itself isn't currently functional,hence why I haven't actually installed the screws to secure it in place. I also bought the matching purple glass screen protector and it looks great. My only complaint is that there isn't a threaded bushing in the accessory hole like there is in the original SEGA shells,like my blue Sports edition one has. I had to screw my battery pack in about 5 times before it was threaded enough to actually stay flush to the back. I get that the ABS isn't exactly identical to the original shells but it's not THAT hard to pre thread the hole. I kept my original buttons,so I can't comment on the ones you sell.

Important details about the shells

So I ordered both the grey and the dark blue Game Gear shells. Unfortunately the dark blue does not match the original dark blue game gears Sega put out, but matches the start button of the game gear. That is a big difference in color. the quality is top-notch tho. These look and feel amazing. I want to note that the mounting bracket for the speaker comes with the buttons and not the shell itself which is dumb. But the cartridge Shield is pre trimmed for the mcwill mod to make your life easier and the battery compartments are flat without dividers so you can easily put lithium ion batteries in there. I really appreciate that. I wanted to do a blue Game Gear like the original, but the color accuracy was off. So I made a Japanese Sega Saturn theme Game Gear and I absolutely love it even more. Also using a hot airgun I was able to gently warm up the serial number sticker on back of my original Game Gear and re-stick it onto the new one. Makes it look that much nicer. Pro tip. None of the screw posts have been pre threaded. So I recommend you take all the correct new screws and per thread the posts before installing the guts. And use a paper towel to spend the screw around with the screwdriver to get the excess plastic off. It'll make taking the screw in and out much easier in the future.

Excellent quality!

I had low expectations for the shell, but I was pleasantly surprised! Looks and feels amazing. My Game Gear feels like it just left the factory!
