3.0 out of 5 stars Things I wish I'd known..., 16 Aug. 2010
I wasn't sure if buying this skin would work. I've never done it before, so it was a bit of a shot in the dark. I wanted to skin my console to make it look more attractive and blend in better with the rest of my AV gear, and I thought this skin - Cold Tribal - looked good. I didn't know if it would have the black background, or if that was the colour of the underlying Xbox.

Well, I've fitted it now. First issue - I wasn't sure if it would be just the skin for the faceplate, or for the side as well. The answer, unfortunately, is that it's just the faceplate, which is a bit of a pain since my Xbox lies flat and I can see some of the top. It's also a white Xbox so that looks pretty bad with the skinned faceplate. Never mind...!

The skin for the faceplate fits pretty well and it does look nice. The vinyl seems to be well printed and cut - it has little bits cut out for the memory card slots etc. You just need to take care to line everything up, and it fits pretty well, so no complaints there. However, I can still see white bits around the edges, and it would have been much better on a black unit.

So my conclusions are... (1) this one's just a faceplate skin, so be careful what you buy, and (2) get a skin that won't clash with the colour of your console, if possible.

Three stars because of these issues, and the fact that I do find it a little expensive for what it is. If I'd had a black console, it would probably have got 4 stars.
