I ordered this product to replace the old Zelda shell on my DS Lite. It is almost exactly the same. It requires patience, and may require some distance if you get too frustrated with it. That being said, if you are impatient or uncomfortable with tearing apart your electronics, I would not recommend this. However, being the impatient masochist I am, I highly enjoyed this.

First I must say, there are no electronic parts in this package, so if your DS Lite does not work before you get this, this will not make it work. If your DS does work before this, and does not after this, tear it apart and figure out what went wrong, do not blame an innocent chunk of plastic for your failings.

A helpful note - once you get this, look over the instructions supplied with the case. It comes with everything you NEED, but a few little things will make your life much easier such; as a tape loop or ice cube tray to organize the screws you take out so you know which ones go where, tweezers, needle nosed pliers. Another helpful bit is YouTube's RetroGameTech. He has a quick walk though that helped with some little things that the written directions did not.

My quips about the matching, comparing, the color is slightly off, but not so much you can tell. And the L/R switches that come with the system are the wrong gold color. They are metallic when they shouldn't be. But I had both of mine, so I just used those instead. The replacement screw covers are a flat gold instead of a metallic gold, but once again, I saved mine and recycled them. Other than those two quips, everything else was exactly the same, even on the inside.

Now, when you are taking it apart/reassembling it - The ribbon for the top screen will become your worst enemy.

The one sold by awb... something (now gone from the available sellers) was a complete trash, it just didn't fit. Awful finish.
But I gave it another try from ValueDeluxe, and it turned out to be okay.
The finish wasn't as good as the OEM housing of course, but it fit nicely enough.
There's one thing that people should consider before buying this housing though.
It requires a complete disassembly and reassembly of your ds lite, and if you're not accustomed to that sort of thing, then you might end up ruining your ds.
So, if you're mechanically inclined, go for it, it will do it's job.

Okay so the kit arrived today and it was pretty simple to do with all tools and equitment... Things they may not note is to have the speakers you need to sauder them on and doesn't have that tool. It did take time to put everything where it needed to be but is easy enough. Comes with extra screws and tri wing screwdriver. The tri-force is not so dark as they show but is still visable. All in all easy enough to do, time consuming yes.

For the most part this is great, i was a little disappointing that it wasn't exactly the same color as in the picture, but i quickly got past that and loved it anyways.
It came in nice packaging, and in great condition. Nice and shiny!

But here's where things go south for them.....

Cons:
Only the internal screws where included, none of the external that should have come with it. Maybe the extra short scews that came with the kit could have worked, but im not certain...

But the biggest flaw, was the fact that the stylus it came with is just for show. Its a solid hunk of plastic that doesn't work....
Other than the fact that my friends DS had a jacked up touch screen, the only thing that bugged me was the fact that he a had a white stylus for a black DS.

The reason i bought this case was for a complete DS refurbishing, and while the cons aren't all that big, they could have easily bee avoided.

This product came with all hardware (even Phillips screws to replace those pesky "Triforce" screws) and the link they provided to disassemble and reassemble the DS was pretty darn good. The only problem came when I accidentally made a small tear in the upper LCD's ribbon cable. I went ahead and finished installation (except for the rubber screw covers), powered on and got what I expected: a perfectly working DS with a dead upper LCD. So, I spent another $10 for a replacement (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004E0M5IC/ref=oh_o00_s00_i00_details) and I'll have to wait for a few days for that to get this think working again. Cannot stress enough the need for care when working with that ribbon cable!

Having shared all that, this case was awesome! It's my daughter's DS, so she was wanting something "bling-y" and this fit the bill.

For a third party case I was impressed with how the cased looked when I received it. I consider myself to be decent with electronics, however nothing prepared me for the nightmare of replacing my DS case. I accidentally broke off the electronic filter, and the volume control off the motherboard. My DS lite was one of the first manufactured so it had an extra piece on the motherboard the replacement case did not have space for. I had to break a piece off the case so it would fit. The seller has been extremely helpful after I explained what happened and is sending replacement parts. For those who are looking to replace their DS case, be extra careful when you put the back cover on, and make sure to pre-thread the holes. I stripped a lot of screws along the way because I did not follow the instructions. It is a mistake I will never forget.
