Great quality at a great price.

Great fit and gave my old DMG a new lease on life.

I really enjoyed these

As one reviewer said these do not come with a power switch. I really wish they would! Despite this these are some nice quality buttons. I have been using them for a couple months now and they function just fine while still looking brand new


Game Boy Buttons (NES Style)

As described, though not 100% ideal for SNES

I ordered a pair each of the original and concave, NES style DMG buttons to put into a SNES controller. They look and feel great, but the inside of the buttons where they sit on the conductive pads is farther back than the OEM SNES buttons, giving them less travel so they don’t feel quite right in the controller. I had to pad the insides of the buttons to get them to work well. This makes sense since they were made to be used in a Game Boy, but I thought it was worth mentioning for those using them on SNES.

Very pretty buttons!

I love the colors, even for just replacing your default black NES D-pad with a custom red D-pad, it pops out so much that the whole controller is looking really something special.

Even if the custom D-pads are just a tiiiiny bit smaller than the regular D-pad, it still feels great to use. And at long last, someone who sells brown buttons! With the main 4 player controllers that use red, blue, yellow and green, my fifth and completely personalized controller really looks comfy and something that's made for me. Everything fits and works perfectly fine.

And the quality?? I really don't see or feel any difference with the paint at all. You can feel the difference in pressing the buttons but it's so minimal that it really shouldn't cause trouble for a casual gameplay. For the more intense button-presses, you probably have to get used to it as the difference is just really minimal. Doesn't leave scratches, doesn't stick, I don't see the problem here.

Amazing job Retro Modding!
