First off, the case I received is 100% clear; not smoke, not black. The black in the photo is a paper insert to show what the 3DS would look like in the case. As I own a blue 3DS, this is exactly what I wanted--a clear case.

Also, this case is made specifically for the 3DS and will not fit on a DSi or DS Lite, so be sure of which system you're buying this for.

This is a fitted, rigid, snap-on case molded to fit the 3DS. There are no hinges, which helps keep the size down. My 3DS usually travels in a pouch in my daily bag, so I just needed something to protect it from the occasional scratch or ding, without adding too much bulk. This case fits perfectly and blends right in to the body of the unit and seems fairly sturdy.

If anything, I only have one con: Because the case is a smooth, clear plastic, dust and particles gather between the lid and the case, which can leave ugly blotches or gunk. This probably won't bother most, but it can be an issue for some. I also don't think the particles stuck in there will scratch the lid, though because I hate fingerprints and smudges, this is something that'll drive me batty, no doubt.

Finally, I won't list this as a negative, because it's the nature of this type of case, but this is not meant for impact-resistance. If you drop your 3DS, you'll still likely break your unit and all this case will do is pop off. It's made of a rigid plastic, not something soft, like silicone. Again, it's something I was aware of and am fine with. Still, if you want something that'll take a short drop, look elsewhere.

Overall, I think this is a great case to protect my 3DS while it sits in my bag, looking for people to meet on Street Pass. I like that it doesn't add to the bulk of the unit and can still fit in the small carrying pouch I bought. I'd have preferred that it be translucent instead of perfectly clear, so that dust and smudges wouldn't be so noticeable, but it fits my needs nicely.

If you, like me, are considering both the silicone and the clear plastic protectors from this brand, this review is for you. I was given both for review and will focus on comparing them.

The clear protector is made of thin plastic that comes in a top and bottom piece which snap on and off easily (no damage). While it looks dark in some pictures, it is transparent. Some have commented on the little spots of condensation under the protector, which don't bother me at all. I imagine these occur with any protector, but are evident in the clear ones. In terms of protection, the plastic is not going to protect against major impacts. Rather, it will prevent scratches from normal use.

The black silicone case comes in one piece and slips on and off very easily -- important because it blocks the SD card slot. It looks just like a silicone case for a phone, which is good or bad, depending on preference. I think the clear case looks better. The silicone has a nice feel, but it makes the system more difficult to slip into my pocket for Streetpass action. The silicone also covers the shoulder (top) buttons, which makes them a bit harder to push, but is good protection. These buttons are exposed with the clear protector. As with the clear protector, it only offers scratch, not impact, protection.

While both products are thin, they have enough thickness to prevent using the charging dock. I really dislike this, and it could have been remedied by including a larger dock. I can't imagine this would cost them much, since the docks are just plastic with contact pins. The clear protector can even balance precariously in the dock and work.

Usually have nothing but good to say about Hori products, but this one I do not like. It is very easy to put on and remove, but when it is on, it has a rainbow reflection in top and bottom, and a moisture effect on both top and bottom. Not very happy with this case, and will be returning it.

+Good quality
+Easy to snap on and off
+Good access to all the switches plugins

-Moisture effect
-Rainbow reflection

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
We'd recently bought a Nintendo 3DS for our 8 year old. We've had experiences involving electronics and sidewalks, toilets, and various other 'challenge's. So I was really happy to get the Nintendo 3DS protector.

We don't have earlier DS systems, so I can't tell if this protector would fit them. But for our purposes this heavy duty plastic protector has already saved the system from several falls of 3-4 feet onto hard surfaces.

We can still plug the charger into the back of the DS, and the protector itself hasn't interfered with our son's enthusiasm for the DS, or his ability to use it. I'd recommend this for anyone looking for low cost ruggedness for the DS system.

I received the package a day earlier than expected! I was a bit disappointed knowing before buying that this case won't protect from impact, but will protect from dust and scratches. That's pretty much the only downside. This does however make me have a better grip on my 3DS, and makes me worry less about dropping it. I'm not that much of clutz with it anyway. I'm completely careful with it. Yes, it's a bummer I can't charge it with the cradle, but it's not like I use it anyway. I let it charge in the middle of my nightstand.
