    Works fine but quality isn’t great.

    This is a good replacement however, I was a little disappointed in the quality. It feels cheap.

    I never had an OEM eye shade, so I can`t compare, but this one definitely does make quite the difference versus playing without one. It`s alson reasonably comfortable.

    Good Replacement Eyeshade

    It`s a pretty solid replacement. Definitely not like the original but it gets the job done and is not uncomfortable. Highly recommend if your existing eyeshade is wearing out or missing.

    Quality product. Worth the money.

    I haven`t used an OG Virtual Boy eye shade since 1995. I bought this to put on my virtual boy I bought from SAG. It attached easily to the new eye shade holder and is comfortable to use.

    Is it of the same quality of a brand new OEM one? Probably not.

    Is it not crumbling and 25+ years old with dirt and debris on it thats old enough to rent a car? Yes.

    Unless your OG eye shade is immaculate, I`d highly recommend replacing it with this one.

    Kinda disappointing but does the job

    If you are looking for something that looks and feels like the original eyeshade, you should look elsewhere. If you original one is in really rough shape and you just want a cheap replacement in order to just play, this is fine I suppose.

    It's not the orginal but I like it

    Posted by M Donovan Aikman on Apr 1st 2022

    Mine, like a lot of used VBs I have seen, came without this shade. Parts are hard to come by so if you can find OEM or a full proper repro, be prepared to pay. This soft foam piece fits easily onto the pegs and blocks all that annoying sidelight nicely. It's what I needed without the fuss of having to make it myself.

    Very cheap product for a reason. Not replica of original.

    Posted by Jonathan on Jan 22nd 2022

    Talk about disappointed. I was waiting an eternity for those really high quality replicas of the original to come back. I was so excited seeing replacement eye shades come back, so I ordered without checking closely what it is.

    These are eye shades that are just sheets of thin foam that are cut to size. They could never dream of being adequate replacements of the soft, high quality, Nintendo brand eye shades. Be sure you're ok with that, because I'm not. These are way thinner than the OEM eye shades as well.

    Someone made a third-party version that was super close in quality to the originals. I thought those were back. My mistake.

    Great quality... I would say close or on par with the OEM one. give your VB that fresh look and smell.
