    Default MochaBerry

    This is now the third time I have redone my 9700. The first attempt was a red frame purchased from Truesupplier (as seen in my "How To: Replacing Frame") thread. It quickly fell apart (paint chipped off), as well as the fit on the top cover was horrible.

    I then ordered a second kit from Truesupplier which was the Green Electroplate kit and re-did my Bold again. The top cover came pre-mounted but was a horrible fit and had huge gaps all around. The keyboard was also cheap and soft and bled light through every key. It also started falling apart quickly, with the green electroplate falling off for no reason.

    Take 3....

    I just received a coffee brown kit from SW-Box, my first attempt at ordering from them. Their communication and shipping speed was excellent, more than I can say about Truesupplier.

    The kit itself is well.........perfect. The top cover came pre-mounted and as you can see from the pics, it's a perfect OEM fit. The entire frame fits perfectly all around and the brown keyboard is the same quality as the black OEM keyboard that originally came with it. No light leaks anywhere and is firmer to type on than the POS Truesupplier keyboard was.

    Over all, this kit is far superior quality than anything I have ever received from Truesupplier.

    Nice. Ur right, the fit is much better from what I can see in your pics. I hate the gaps from the top cover and the screen but from yours, it looks just like the OEM one. I too order from True supplier before and the the gap was just horrible when I replaced it. I ended up going to CNN.CN to get another black one with the top cover premounted also and it's much better than truesupplier one but still not as good as yours. It still has a slight gap but its ok. Good job on yours tho.

    I received my white housing from truesupplier today and the T6 tool wouldn't even fit. It was too big.... wish you posted this the other day! However, the shipping from truesupplier was fast.

    The keypad is on par with OEM?


    I bought two keypads from SW-BOX, but the quality was so horrible compared with OEM. Both of them are collecting dust as we speak.

    Hrm. I am comparing it with the keypad I had from Truesupplier. It was crap, this one is far better. We'll see how it holds up after some use though. I think it's hit or miss with the keyboards. A friend of mine got a white keyboard from SW-Box in the past and it was so stiff that a couple of keys didn't even work. This one seems decent. I guess it also depends how picky a person is.

    It looks like they didn't put enough coats of paint on the keypad, light is bleeding through.

    Very nice!

    Glad to see SW-Box improved their keypad quality. The last one I got from them didn't have any travel on the right side of the keypad, thus rendering it unable to register any keypresses.

    Nope. That's just the reflection from my flash. There is no light bleed at all, unlike my last green keypad from Truesupplier.
