    I am kinda getting tired of my plain white DS lite so I plan to get a new shell. Problem is, I don't know which one is the highest quality. I looked at the review but... don't know how accurate they are as the company may have attempted to improve it after receiving such criticism. What do you guys suggest? Buy the shells from dealextreme?(I heard their products are somewhat inferior to the origional) or Wiiroom on ebay?(Pricey but may be worth the money no?)
    Please list some of your personal experience and feedbacks [​IMG]

    The same shells that Wiiroom on Ebay had are now on Dealextreme. Besides from the free yet long shipping, You'll save about 8-10 bucks I believe.

    If you decide to replace a case, go with the DealExtreme one (the one that comes in a plain white box with a little window)...It's a most complete set for replacing (includes everything, even the screen borders), and it's cheaper than other places..

    Naturally, when you replace casing once, your NDS won't be as sturdy as created in factory, but it's not a big deal..

    If you decide to do it, also, be sure to research a lot, read guides, and watch videos from youtube...There are few very helpful....Take lots of time for replacing, and be sure not to get interrupted, because you have to be really careful with the inner electronics..

    I hope so but I thought the one from wiiroom were better b/c the review kinda gave them a hire score. Except they were bumped down b/c of price.

    I have a translucent case from DX (the ones which scored highest in the review.) I have to say I was impressed at the quality for the price. Everything was included, even stuff I ended up not using (screen frames.) The only thing that was disappointing was the stylus. The mold seam divides the stylus in two length-wise, giving a nice scratchy surface right over the tip. I would never use it. But overall I was very impressed and would not hesitate to recommend the black translucent case from DX.

    I recommend DealExtreme as well. I bought a black case from them and it's great.

    Just be warned, if you replace the whole case it's fine, but if you're only going to replace half or something, it won't quite work.

    The cases are similar enough to fit together in a complete package, but they differ from the real thing enough to not quite fit properly.

    But it's not a problem if you're replacing the whole thing.

    Okay....I am tempted to either go for the smoke black transparent, zelda edition, or just get a crystal clear case and edit the skins for my white DS. Anyone have any personal thoughts as to which one will give me the longest satisfaction?

    I got the transparent blue, and I think it looks really good... As for the Zelda one - it's twice as expensive, but does look very nice... It's up to you whether you think it is worth the price...
