This cover fit perfectly. The plastic is as clear as glass and thick enough to protect for years. It is very protective. I noticed several scratches that my 1st grade son did to DSI XL case within 2 weeks of owning it. So, I wanted to protect the unit from more damage. New Super Mario - World 6 was difficult for a 1st grader and when the item got thrown, it was time to order a protective case. Crystal clear is the best color that fits DSI XL, versus my older daughter's choice of protection: "Stickers - Justin Bieber!"

*****PROS*****
1. Protects very well as intended.
2. Clear so it will show the beauty of your original DSI XL's design.
3. Snaps on and is very easy to install and remove without risk of damaging or scratching your system.
4. Can be played through so it becomes a permanent skin that you don't have to remove to play.
5. Has all the appropriate holes and spaces so that your DSI camera and all your buttons and functions are not interfered with.
6. Very thin & lightweight so it doesnt weigh your DSI XL down more than it has to and also doesn't alter the size too badly.
7. Very nice price on Amazon.com.

*****CONS*****
1. The plastic is not a very good quality and feels like it will crack if dropped under normal conditions. However, it will indeed protect your system from said fall and i'd rather the plastic skin crack than my DSI sustain any damage.
2. The item is supposed to be new but it came with small noticeable scratches and imperfections in the casing right out of the package. So when you put the case on it looks cloudy or snowy from the blemishes instead of truly clear.

Overall I was satisfied with my purchase and it works as intended to protect my DSI XL, but loses some points due to the cons listed above. If you are debating on buying this, I recommend it to you without a doubt. But don't expect the look to be perfectly clear as I would have wanted.

Hard and clear case that is great to protect the DSI XL. The thing that I liked the most was that it was sold to me at a great price compared to retail stores which sell this for a much more expensive price.

I received this item two days ago, and it's perfect. It fits perfectly and let free access to the connection of the DSi XL. I think it's a great way to protect your console.

I got it and it fit great...4 days later the hinge broke..and I never dropped it
it's cheap plastic...good thing I didn't spend that much on it

UPDATE:
Maybe it was just a defective case..I contacted eforcity and they sent a replacement right away...great seller..I will update when I get the new

update: 8/8/2010

I recieved the new case and it's working fine.it's a little lose, but not too bad
I still don't reccomend it but for only a few bucks, it's an okay case for the DSi XL

I don't understand why people are claiming this thing breaks. It hasn't shown any signs of wear besides scuffs and scratches on the outer surface. It works as advertised, and I am satisfied with it so far. It allows access to all the outer parts of the DSi XL without making everything clumsy. Very well executed.

It's already worth the money I paid for it, as it has lasted me longer than 3 weeks, and doesn't show any signs of wear.

Yes, Amazon, this is a very fun game worth 4 stars!

In all seriousness, this is a pretty good case for its price. The plastic is solid and likely to last a few high drops. It's perfectly clear, save for a few marks and outlines that you can only see if you scrutinize it up close. The case is smooth on the outside and feels nice to the touch, but feels a bit sharp on the edges when you open it (not cut-your-finger sharp, but why-doesn't-this-feel-as-comfortable kind of sharp). The hinge for the case is surprisingly stable and doesn't get in the way when opening the XL.

Installation is easy; just snap it in and it's good to go. The little tabs on the inside keeping the XL in place don't exactly work for the bottom of the case, but even though that part doesn't snap in, the top snaps in fine, and the bottom part of the XL is already secured inside the case, so the tabs aren't a big deal.

Aesthetics are good aside from the small marks in the clear casing that you can't see without looking up close. People with big hands however (like me) may be discouraged to find out that it's slightly harder to press the volume buttons or take out the stylus or SD card, since the case leaves holes for those functions alone with no extra room, which is fine for others. The hole for the camera doesn't line up perfectly, but it doesn't block the camera anyway, so it's a small gripe.

The XL has three positions that the hinge is designed to stop at: the standard position (around ~130 degrees), the table position like a laptop (around ~100 degrees), and all the way back (almost 180 degrees). The case slightly stops the XL from going all the way back. Even though this position isn't used often, it's worth mentioning that it won't sit all the way back with the case on.

It's cheap, but it's definitely made to protect the XL. It's pretty and doesn't take away from the XL's design or color. It's fine to hold. If you're worried about keeping your XL in near perfect condition, go for this case!

This clear case fits the Dsi XL very well. Provides protection against scratches and bumps, but I think if dropped onto the floor it would not offer much protection to the contents. I can see the scratches on the top and bottom of the surface already. My son has a Nerf case on his, making his DSi XL very bulky, but he has dropped it many times w/out problem. With my daughter (9 yrs) I thought she would have less tendency to drop than a 6 yr old. Also, can't beat the very low price.

The case fits great around the DSi XL. It does feel a little thin in places but as long as you're not too rough, it will probably be fine. I also got a skin for the DS to prevent scratches on the inside since stuff always seems to get in between the case and the DS. That's my recommendation to protect the DS!

I bought this to go over my sons new Dsi XL & it has been wonderful. It has sufficiently kept it from getting scratched up which is exactly what I wanted. I would def recommend!
