If any of you have noticed that the GO blasts light out the back of the unit from the backlight LEDs on the LCD, then I may have a quick fix for you if you haven't already figured this out.

Attached is a relatively bad picture of the back of my GO. You can see I put a piece of black electrical tape inside the plastic back cover which solves the fairly bright light bleed out the back.

I hope this helps some of you.

Personally I would paint the inside of the entire case to make it my own, I think I would go with a Japanese Famicom look most likely.

You can see the electrical tape on this (fairly terrible) video I made to address some shortcomings in other reviews of this product.
