    Stay away from the Super crappy SHOCK shells.
    They will disapoint.
    So far there is nothing on the market which comes close to the OEM quality of the stock shell.
    They just can't match the dual layer quality of the stock shell.
    I have seen some GREAT results from gus who Remove their OEM shell and custom paint it so it looks great and feels like the stock part as well.
    Again whatever you do DON"T spend your Hard earned CASH on a shell made b SHOCK.
    Waste of money.

    Hell the don't even include the needed special screw driver to take the DS appart with. Then you go out and try to buy a tri wing driver and can't find anything which will hold up for more than 2 or 3 uses. I ended up buying a GREAT USA made driver for $7.50 delivered and it is QUALITY that I would be proud to put it into my tool box.
    He man good luck.

    BTW has anybod ever rried to buy a complete shell from the nintendo parts supply? They may have more than one color and the dual layer plastic is the best.

    I can't remember who right now, but someone on the forum said you can send your DS off to nintendo who will fit a new case for $50.

    I completely disagree with yaesumofo, I have done two replacement shock shells and I have no probs with them and for the price I think it is worth it.
    mabey if Nintendo got their crap straight we the consumer wouldn't have to buy replacement shells for flimsy hinges? So again I disagree.
