I have the WORST luck! I ordered the clear xbox cover for my Xbox about 3 weeks ago... paid extra for the "Pre-order".

Finally arrived today. It has a 5 inch crack in it. Very displeased. It wasn't really packed all that well. Three wadded-up pieces of newspaper are no match for the USPS!

Sent a note to customps2.com. I'll keep y'all updated! Hopefully they'll do me some J and take care of the problem.

Forgot to mention that, other than the crack, the cover looks SCHWEEET!!!

I hope they sell a lot of 'em so they make more varieties.

I have this idea of having a little "aquarium" built into to the case to hold a goldfish... it would need good ventilation, though... otherwise, if you play too long, the goldfish fries!

Anyone else get a new cover? did it "arrive alive"?

Man, that's a bummer for sure. Let me know how they handle the situation. I'm going to hold off ordering until I know they take care of their inadequacies. That's a damn shame that they have such a nice product, but can't be realistic in how they ship it. I do a lot of shipping and you have to practically bulletproof everything!

later man

I'm not too worried! The true measure of a company's worth often shows best when you see how they handle problems. Now's their chance!

Sorry 'bout your luck PorscheXboxster. That's got to really suck!
It had to be a postage issue.
I got my clear case a few days ago from the same place and everything was in bubble wrap and in great shape. It was here in 2 days!

It is though a very cool feature. I finished applying the decalgirl skin,added a few lights and it's definatly noticable in the room now!
I took a picture and was going to make an avitar with it but the file is to big. Sad

But good luck!!
p.s. let me know how that aquarium case goes!!lol

I assembled it all and it looks GREAT (minus the crack)! It ws quite easy... took less than 15 minutes.

...sort of.

I still have two pieces left over. To those who have the kit, what are those two extra pieces for? I've got the top cover, front cover and button assembly in place, but I'm not sure what the round disc and the thing that looks like a round disc attached to a bar are for! I hate reading manuals, so you KNOW how desparate I was when I resorted to looking on customps2.com to find directions! None to be found! (sigh)

Hey PorsheXboxster, sorry I didn't see you post cuz I was out of town. I'm pretty sure that those extra pieces have something to do with the DVD Drive. I'm not sure what, but if look close at some of the pictures you'll see it. I didn't install them!
realmccloy, I'm getting ready to E-mail you now!

Thanks! later!

FYI & FWIW, it's been three days since I posted my problem at customps2.com and I've heard NO response yet.

In fairness, Monday was a holiday in the U.S., but it is now Tuesday evening.

Well, it's been 4 days and STILL NO RESPONSE! I'm beginning to have my doubts about customps2.com's customer service.

I paid extra to be the FKOTB with one, now I'll be the last!

shame, because it would be a really nice case mod!
