5.0 out of 5 stars Great protection February 29, 2012
By Nick C
Color Name:Black|Verified Purchase
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
The case provides protection of your vita amazingly well. It's a very well made and solid case. I dropped it a few times in the name of science and there was no sound on impact. Inside is a soft divider that goes on the screen area of the Vita to hold it securely. On the other side of the divider is slot to store 2 Vita games.

However, there is one incredible con. It smells. I don't mean that new rubber product smell, I'm not sure what this smell is. It is disgusting. I left it in my bedroom and came in later that day, I instantly felt sick. The smell is strong and one of the worst odors I've ever experienced. And when I took out the Vita it smelt for about an hour before that smell went away. Maybe the smell is an anti-theft feature, I'm not really sure why it smells so bad.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sturdy and Compact Case February 28, 2012
By D3spard
Color Name:Black|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Medium, not too big or not too small. Big enough to place comfortably in your bag and small enough to carry in your hands. Could potentially clip on your pants if you really wanted to; size is in that middle range between looking awkward and acceptable.

Very sturdy case. Well made and quality does not feel cheap.

Case opens but not fully. Instead there are two straps in the middle of top half of the case that holds the case to the bottom half. This prevents accidentally have your Vita fall out if you open the case a weird angle. There is also a small cloth piece that postions itself over the Vita's screen when it is inside the case (helping against scratches). What I personally love about the design, is that the Vita cannot come into contact with the zipper. There is a small groove that separates the Vita from the outside of the case and stops the zipper from touching the Vita when the case is fully closed.

Perfect for storing Vita and 2 games (does not fit anything else). The right case for just transporting the Vita without fear of dropping the case and damaging the system.

Hori makes great portable products, and the HORI PS Vita Hard Case (Black) is almost no exception. It's well-designed, compact, good-looking, and keeps your system safe. But it absolutely reeks. I mean that literally. Whatever plastics Hori used for this thing emit a powerful, room-filling odor somewhere between "wet sawdust" and "dead hobo." Much as I like the design of this thing, I can't use it -- at least not yet -- because the stench of it rubs off on my hands, on my Vita, on whatever bag I carry it in, etc. I'm all for recycled products, but next time I hope Hori looks somewhere besides a toxic landfill for their materials.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hori hard case April 19, 2012
By Joe
Color Name:Black
I bought this case off the Hori website for $20 shipped, hoping I could get the newest version of the case. I read the reviews and all were favorable aside from the funky smell. I will say as of 4/15/12 they are still shipping smelly cases. In my opinion, the smell isn't as bad as some other reviewers claim. It's sorta a soily/peppery smell. Like I said, it's not bad enough to not buy the case over. You can only smell it within a couple inches of the case, and my vita only smells like it if you put ur nose right up to it.

Alright, now to actually review the case. Ultimately I was after the smallest soft case I could find, like the sleeve in the accessory package, so I could carry the vita in my back pocket. I started searching for something OL and found some cool japanese soft cases, which I sorta regret not going with only because this hori case is just a little bigger than I thought it would be. It DOES fit in my back pocket though. Oh yea, this case is also a model they sell in Japan, for all you weeaboos out there(admittedly, I'm intrigued by the crazy jap scene too, don't care for anime though). Another reviewer said it was a SEMI hard case. Not so. It's pretty solid. About 2-3mm thick, feels like tackboard, but probly is plastic. I say tackboard because it does flex abit, and you can slightly squish the case between your fingers. Pretty solidly built, and as for looks, well that's why I bought it. It can hold two games inside, but I was able to squeeze in 2 in each slot easily, so 4 total. My local(Green Bay WI) Walmart stocks the blue one. Found that out after I ordered my black and red one. It looks better anyway.

If you look around, there's a site offering it at $10.99 w/ free shipping to the US. I read reviews of this company and they are legit.

1.0 out of 5 stars Get something else March 3, 2012
By Mac
Color Name:Blue
I bought this case along with a Hori screen protector and while the screen protector is good the case is terrible. Firstly it absolutely stinks, it has an awful chemical smell to it. Another review of the black one also mentions this. Secondly it is bigger then it needs to be, and despite its size has only 2 internal slots for game cards and no pouch for headphones etc. Thirdly it opens only partially allowing only semi access to the vita and the game slots. It opens vertially and has internall hinges that dont allow the case to open more then slightly, these also stick out when you try to close the case and do up the zippers on the side. Overall I would not recommend this case if you have more then 2 games and want a case that is reasonably sized and can actually open to allow access. If you don't mind a smelly case, only have 2 games and like your cases on the larger size then this is the one for you.
