I was really happy with what I got.
The quality of the kit has a very premium look and feel once properly put on. Much better that the OEM stock frames.
I hadn't even thought of grabbing myself a tools but luckily there was a really nice set of tools in the box which had everything I needed.
As someone who hasn't taken apart a Nintendo switch before the only part I found tedious was dealing with reattaching ribbon cables for the joy cons.
Shipping was also really quick.
