Gameboy Shell for Kite's SAIO board

Post by Chumples » Sat Mar 31, 2018 7:24 pm

Hello All!

I have been doing research and have come to find out that different shells from different vendors vary in size a small amount. Does anyone have a good recommendation for a gameboy shell for Kite's SAIO board? I was looking at getting mine from www.handheldlegend.com. If it makes any difference as well I was going to use the 3d printed bracket that HoolyHoo makes for Kite's board http://market.sudomod.com/hoolyhoos-aio ... aio-board/.

I bought 3 different shells from 3 different manufacturers and printed one. Haven't had any noticeable differences yet.

There are small differences but shouldn't be anything that would keep components from fitting from one manufacturer to the next.

In US, handheld legend and retro modding are both reputable and reliable. Retro modding has some great custom colors. U can buy a nice screen surround glass at handheld legend along with your case order though.

In UK, it's dead pan robot(they carry retro modding's cases).

Although, I've ordered a couple from AliExpress and have had no issue.

I've ordered a few from HHL, and they work great for all of my builds. My typical shop though is aliexpress, specifically the seller gamers zone. reasonable prices and good quality I find.

I do agree that retromodding has some pretty cool colors though, some stuff you won't find elewhere, but I have yet to buy from them.

I get all of my shells and buttons from Deadpanrobot.com, it's much better quality than the ones you get from eBay or Amazon. Here is the link https://www.deadpanrobot.co.uk/game-boy ... e-boy-zero
