The smoke Ghost Case is the most complete Xbox 360 case on the market, with high quality plastic that giving it the appearance of glass. This is the only case in the world that comes with a clear DVD drive lid, which actually lets you the DVD spinning while you play! Inside this amazing kit is also a clear fan tunnel, without this vital piece you wouldn't even be able to see your circuit board! This piece opens up the whole inside of your console so you can see everything going on inside (this also allows for your custom lighting kit to light up everything in the case)! Note: The silver side grilles (mesh type pieces) are not replaced. This is so the hard drive will match the color of these pieces, and because behind these pieces are a big ugly metal parts that are better when not visible! This new case is designed to be compatible with the new HDMI generation of consoles as well as the original case style. The custom light kit has backwards-compatible plugs to fit both the new and old style consoles. Comes with 2 DVD tray parts one for the Samsung / Hitachi and one for the benQ DVD drive.

This one is VERY important and I learned it the hard way. CHECK THE FOAM TAPE ON THE BOTTOM OF THE LED'S!! The power wires to the LED boards are soldered to the BOTTOM of the board and are bare and open. On mine, on one of the boards, the foam tape did not come out far enough to cover these wires and I didn't catch it. As a result, the solder joints on the wires shorted against the metal housing of the Xbox. When I powered this thing on to check it before putting the covers on, It shot a two inch flame out the back of the DVD drive and literaly burned one of the wires on the dvd power connector in half. I had to cut their cable off and splice it in to my old dvd power cable. I then removed ALL of the preinstalled foam tape, coated the back of the PCB's with a thin layer of liquid tape and attacked them using 3M mounting tape leaving a 1/4" overlap on each end of the PCB. Amazingly enough, the Benq DVD drive must be one tough beast, as it still works.
That leads me to the clear Cover for the Benq drive. Throw it in the garbage. Period. Out of the box, snapped on, lined up, looked good. Got my magnet out of the top cover put it in, fired up Xbox, and wallah.....Disc won't spin. Pull up slightly on center and disc spins. The base of the clear cover is too thick and pinches disc against it. After 45 minutes of carefully sanding the bottom of it and rechecking, I get it to spin noise free and like it should. PROFIT......not. I eject the disc put it in again, very slight rubbing sound, but disc still spins free. One last sanding and all appears well. PROFIT......not. I put the top cover on, a little flimsy, but it looks good and fits sorta ok. Snap the bottom cover on the front, move to the back and try to snap it together.....for 10 minutes....curse.....5 more minutes.....finally get all the fasteners to latch. Finish it all up pop the hard drive in, can't wait to see how it looks! Power it up, its looks good, eject the DVD to make sure it all clears, yep. Everything looks good. Pop in Black Ops 2,..............you guessed it.... disc won't spin. Lightly tap the top of the case and disc turns half a turn and stops. Tap a few more times and disc spins, but sounds like I am running it through a shredder instead of playing it. Shut it all down, try to take case apart to remove clear cover. If you thought closing it was tough, wait till you try opening it! Be VERY careful with the side the power connector is on. I now have a nice tear in mine right there. I had to pull so hard to get the tabs to release on the opposite side, the plastic is so flimsy, I literally ripped it from the bottom of the snap above the power connector, to just below the power connector, about an 1 1/4 tear.
For the price charged for this case, it should be MUCH better quality than it is. At $25 its a steal, at the $45 it is now, its stealing from you.
My only complaints are that the faceplate power button is not sensitive enough, you really need to press it to turn off and on your console. No instructions had to look online, not really a con for me but for others it might be. They were nice enough to give you all the tools necessary to complete the job, torx screwdriver, phillips screwdriver. Case opener tool (very helpfull) 2 different dvd covers depending on which drive you have.
This was a nice little project, had me using my head and learning on the go, happy i went through with it, now my RGH xbox has style too it as well, now when people come over it will stand out and let everyone know how we roll around here.
First off, when it's off the case is pitch black. You really won't be able to see into the guts of the machine if the power's not on. When the lights came on, I was expecting this thing to be blinding. Instead, you can see certain parts of the interior in the dark, however if you're looking for a case that is gonna make the whole damn thing glow like a blue lightbulb, I would get the clear version, as the lights provide for a more accented look than an obnoxious blue inferno (which is kinda what I was going for :P The console power light, due to the nature of the case, no longer has the tight green lines like it did in the original case, but it looks ok, not really an issue for me. I don't really see much of the point in the clear DVD drive lid, as the only real advantage it presents is that you can see the little red laser light blink every so often.
The case is noticeably lighter than the original and I feel like it's just as solid. Keep in mind, the system isn't that durable to begin with, so I still wouldn't do anything drastic like drop it.
Overall, I might have went with a clear or clear blue case, as I was looking for an obnoxious glow, but if you are simply looking for an accented look, this case will suit you perfectly.
