Good enough for my 3DS XL
on November 29, 2012
When I ordered this case, it had more bad reviews than good ones. But it cost only $5 including shipping, and there are not many other video game peripherals companies who made crystal cases for 3DS XL. I had one Hori crystal case for my DS lite, which works great, but they didn't make one for 3DS. So I decided to give it a try.
It surprised me when I received it and fit it onto my new 3DS XL. It fits perfectly. Cameras, mic, all sliders, connectors and L/R buttons are easily accessible. I think the idea of using a crystal case is to make your gadget looks 'shiny', rather than have tons of protection. As for the 'dust' problem other people mentioned, you have to remove the case every several weeks to clean the inside of the case and the outside of the 3DS. Actually this a necessary process when using crystal cases on anything, and the manufactures should mention this in the manual (Speck did, but don't expect a $5 product to come with a manual). This is a drawback for crystal cases, but it costs to look good :p
Recommend if you are a fan of crystal cases for your gadgets.
