Any one who has recently purchased the new black version of the Wii will, like me, want to buy matching black accessories! The official Nintendo Wii remote and nunchuck are readily available in black, but the official Nintendo balance board is still only available in white. However, I spotted this third-party product by Snakebyte, which was released at the beginning of December 09 and purchased it via Amazon.
It is sturdy and well made, synchronises with the Console without any problems and has smart looking blue lights down both sides! It works perfectly well and I'm very pleased with the product.
Unfortunately, I can't compare it with the official Nintendo white one having never previously owned one. I do know that this model has the addition of an LCD display (shows weight in kgs) which the Nintendo one doesn't have.
