Rated 3 out of 10 by coola55 One Major Flaw
This Case is exactly what i was looking for. when i buy cases i always attach things to them via glue to make it so they hold games. this was the answer to all my headaches trying to make the ultimate case. the sliding drawer works very well and allows easy access to all your games and memory cards. the texture is very comfortable and easy to hold. the case doubles the weight of the device but its not that much when it carries so much and protects your dsi. the only problem of the entire thing is pretty major though. there is no way to get the stylus out of the side of the dsi. the stylus is covered by the case. i beleive this is because thay expect you to open the drawer and take the stylus out of that. but the stylus in the drawer is impossible to take out. i had to use a butter knife to get it out and im 17 years old. i will not be using this case just because of one major design flaw.
Rated 1 out of 10 by GirlGamer24 Great Design, Poor Durability
I got the dsi and I thought this would be a great case for it because I love the drawer and how you can just take your dsi and not a big case. When I got the case I relized that the case covered up the hole in the dsi where you would usually put your stylus in, so you have to put your stylus in the drawer, plus it is really hard to take out the stylus in the drawer. I took the case on vacation with me not too long after I got the case and the top covering of the case started to peel off! After that I wasn't happy with the case. Then one day when my case was on my dsi the part where the top piece of the case hooks to the bottom piece broke off! The only good thing of the case was that I could hold games, but with all the other problems I would rather just take my big case, or buy a different hard case. I was very dissapointed with the case and would not recommend it to any one.
Rated 6 out of 10 by iMandy Good and here comes the BUT....
I just brought this as a late birthday gift to myself and already I've found one flaw. It blocks access to the stylus pen slot on the DSi. Yes the draw has a spot for the stylus but the package lists it as a EXTRA spot of a stylus. On the plus side its very easy to put together. The DSi pops right into without a problem. OH and also if there are color options for the case why is it all stores have just the clear. We asked our local store and the guy didn't know how to really answer our question. All in all i love it and now can have up to 4 games with her. You heard me, 4 games that's right. Think about it the drawer holds 3 but your DSi has one slot for a game you just cant seem to take out because its to addicting..... I would've rated this a straight 10 but that one flaw set it back. Nice design just needs to not block that stylus spot on the DSi..
Rated 10 out of 10 by Negazoi EXCELLENT case option for all!
For people having trouble removing the stylus from the drawer, just push down on the tip area instead of trying to pry it out. The other end will pop right up easily. Now for the rest! I've always used some sort of case or grip for my handheld systems, just because they get so much use while I'm on the run. This one excels in every way. True, it does cover the actual stylus port (and why? They've already got a hole right next to it, why not extend it?) but this was of little consequence. The semi-rubbery texture is nice and the size adds just the right amount of mass to the system for comfortable long gaming sessions. The bottom tray is fantastic; I've always despised carrying around extra cases just to have a couple of spare games with me on a road trip, etc. The cartridges fit snugly without becoming hard to remove, and the memory card space beneath is just a bonus. The tray could snap in a little tighter, but it's not that big of an issue. The case has taken a couple of knocks, too, but come out without a scratch. I would and do recommend this case to anyone looking to protect their system or even just add some convenience to carrying their games.
Rated 7 out of 10 by A hardcore DS fan It would've been perfect...
Short Story: Although the stylus is inaccessible (and you have to use the holder for it), it's worth it. It's comfortable, durable, and handy. Long Story: The case, at first glance, is great. It holds 3 games, 3 SD cards, protects your DSi and... Holds an extra stylus? No, it doesn't hold an extra stylus. The case doesn't give access to the normal stylus, so you have to put it in the stylus holder included in the item, which is very tedious. You can just keep the stylus out at all times, but that is also annoying. Despite that, it is a very durable and comfortable case. You should probably worry about a screen protector more, because your screen is more susceptible to damage. I admit I use it from time-to-time, though, but all in all, get it. It could come in handy.
Rated 10 out of 10 by tfp1119 for the dsi owner on the go
this is a excellent case for any dsi owner mainley becuse its a hard case and holds games plus the shelf on the bottom to hold games makes it easier for pepole whith larger hands to hold the system plus i mainley play for games and that makes it easier than having one of those back packs that you half to unzip get the game out put the game you do not want in zipit back up and put it in the system all and all the onley problem whith this case is it blocks off the built in stylus slot in the system so youll have to move it out off the system now the main reason i got this is so that i can go places and not have to bring a book bag so madkats youve done it a gain
Rated 9 out of 10 by Bleu VII Best Case I've Found
So, here's the thing. I have big hands. Trying to hold the DSi for long periods of time leaves my hand cramped and hurting. So I grabbed this case specifically because it makes the system larger. And let me tell you, I haven't had a problem with hand cramping since. This adds the perfect amount of bulk to the DSi. That alone is worth the money. Then there are the other pluses. First, it has great texture; it just feels good to pick up. Second, it is the only case I've used that still allows access to the L/R buttons. They are perfectly accessible. Third, and arguably most important, is the drawer. It holds 3 games and a stylus. Brilliant. It's exactly what I need, as I always keep one extra game and two DS Programs with me at all times. But alas, there are a couple of downsides. Minor, I assure you, but still worth noting. The main design flaw in this case is that you cannot store your stylus in the DSi. You have to move it to the drawer in order to have access. That only accentuates the second flaw, which is that the extra games and stylus are packed in so tight that they are legitimately hard to remove. All things considered though, this is the best case I have ever bought, and I plan to use it for a long, long time.
Rated 10 out of 10 by turtlnsite I LOVE this case!!!!!!!
This case is FANTASTIC!!! It fits the DSi perfectly! The slide out drawer is great too. I've had cases with the places that you can put extra games but this one has the game holder actually attached to the case. It is not bulky either. Since it does not cover the camera lens, I still side the case/nintendo in a sleeve for while it it in my purse. Even with that it is smaller than the bulky cases out there. Where on earth was this style when I had my DS Lite?! I still own that system so if I ever see this case made for that one I will snag it up quickly! One problem with the case... still very minor... is the open 'ports' for the game, SD card, etc. They did not carve a hole for the stylus. But that is not a big deal at all considering the slide out drawer holds a stylus anyway. So the stylus covered by the case keeps one just in case I lose the other one. Sort of "in case of emergency break glass" thing! The case also feels nice... not that awful sticky feeling I get with some of the so-called "soft" cases. As for durability, like I stated earlier, I still carry it in a pouch. With the less bulkiness, it still feels vulnerable. So it may be able to take a shock of being dropped. I'm just not willing to test the waters! So in all, you really should try this case. It is not too pricey. It is not bulky and it is a nice protector.
Rated 8 out of 10 by Imsofly12 Over All pretty well
-Protects dsi/dsi xl from outside object scratches and stains
-allows the holding of 3 more games that you truly love as well as an extra stylus just in case you lose the first 1
-slides into the case just like that!!!
-turns to whatever color the dsi/dsi xl is because it is a clear case
-The dsi slot on the side is covered by the case
-users of an action replay dsi its cut off to where the ar cant slide into it fully
-hard to take the case off,leaves scratches once removed
