I’ve used Toast covers in the past, and they single-handedly convinced me to actually like custom console skins. I previously gave my views on the regular edition of the PlayStation 4 cover in dark wood. This time around I’m dressing up my PS4 Pro with an Ash wood flair. Will it once again steal my heart?
Just as with my previous experience, the custom cover arrived in a very sturdy box labeled many times with “Do Not Bend” stickers. Luckily the post office followed these warnings and it was in mint condition upon unboxing. Wonderfully earthy ash wood has a great feel and look to it, and I was immediately happy with my choice of wood.
Since the PS4 Pro is a bit bigger in size, I was presented with many more of the wood panels than I had gotten with the original PS4. A new type was used with this cover as well; a sort of curved piece that molds around the Pro’s rounded edges. The first thought I had upon seeing these parts was a prediction of frustration.
Amazingly, just like all the other parts, they went on with astounding ease. The curved pieces hugged the rounded edges with complete accuracy. It’s obvious these were made with laser measurements. I truly had no problem applying these parts. Lining up the edges was a total breeze. This may have something to do with the PS4 Pro’s design itself, but I’m not complaining.
I opted for yet another custom wood engraving, this time the Console Monster logo itself. To my surprise it wasn’t only an etching this time, but rather the logo was embedded with a black wood cutout. I assume this is due to the light color of the main cover. I’ve gotta say, it looks pretty damned slick. The logo pops with definition and really blends well with the cover and the black edges of the PS4 Pro.
So overall, Toast has yet again won me over with their incredibly well-made, stylish, and easy to apply wood skins. It is an extremely aesthetic and subtle way to add some personality to your console. While I haven’t tried other wood console skins, I have tried various phone covers and cases, and nothing comes close to the quality presented by Toast. I would’ve also confirmed that they are easy to remove, but I have yet to remove them from either of my systems because they just look too nice.
If you’d like to grab one for yourself, or just give them a look, head over to the Toast Made website for more info.
