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.Read more ›
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.
It came in nice packaging, and in great condition. Nice and shiny!
But here's where things go south for them.....
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.
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.
