Cracked NDSL Hinge - The Search

Boy did I do my research, I haven't done my research as much as this since I last purchased my PSP which is 2 years ago!

I searched locally first for any replacement and the best I found is for some dude to order the casing from Dealextreme and then replacing it for me for RM150, problem is, I don't trust the fellow enough to let him muck around with my DS for a few days nor is the fact I have to wait 3 weeks for the item to arrive suits me.

Then I found two shops in the whole of Kuala Lumpur that does carry replacement case, problem is. They only have all black casing and all red casing. Don't like both the colour. So what next? I turned to the net.

Online, I found at least a dozen different site that carry all kinds of different casing ranging from all sorts of colours, designs and also special editions. But none of them I fancy, and 11 out of the dozen site does not send oversea or are very dubious in nature. Then I remembered something that I myself blogged more than two years or so ago.

SHOCK! NDSL Replacement Case

And my search ends but the bulk of my research is about to begin.

I found out online after much digging, the SHOCK! Case has good build quality but does not supplement the full range of replacement that is needed, some of the things that are missing are the inside part of the Slot-2 cover and also some nitpicking here and there.

I also found out that the Chrome Metal casing for SHOCK! case is a scratch fest. Easily scratched and also finger print magnet. After totting around my DSL for so long with a fingerprint magnet, that is the last of the design I wanted.

I mulled over the idea for over a week, trading e-mail with the surprisingly friendly retailer of the site NDS-CENTRAL. He was polite when I questioned him on certain stuff and offered to meet me in an MRT station in Singapore but since I am based in Kuala Lumpur, I had to reject. but the best part is that he quote me lower price than the one advertised on its site! Maybe their sales are not as good or maybe because he thought I am Singaporean.

Anyway, the purchased was made with no hesitation on 30 September 09 and I finally received the package yesterday night! OH JOY!!
