Great value for a Vita case,

11/09/2012 REVIEW UPDATE
One of the nylon straps that others have complained about, broke a few days ago. So, I ended up snipping them both off with some wire cutters.
I wasn't being forceful or anything, was just trying to get the Vita out.
So far, I'd still recommend the case and am keeping the 5-star rating as-is.
After browsing a number of different Vita cases and checking reviews, I decided to pull the trigger on this one. A few notes:
- The case shipped to me does NOT have any sort of weird smell. Another reviewer reported theirs did.
- The two straps used to keep the Vita in place can certainly be slightly annoying, but they absolutely hold the device in place well. I'm undecided on snipping them off or not.
- Other reviewers reported that the games would slide out of the sleeve easily -- I did NOT find this to be the case, and I tried -- hard -- to make it happen.
- Construction of this case, overall, seems very good. Some of the stitching isn't perfect, but for under $9, it's impossible to complain about.
To be perfectly honest, I think this case is better than the felt sleeve that came with my PSP1000. I feel confident in saying the case could be dropped from a fair hight and no harm would come to the Vita inside.
So far, I'm overall extremely pleased with the case and will put it through some usage over the next few months. Should my opinion change at all, I'll be sure and update this review.
