I'm a fan. This thing does its job of protecting this now ancient product in a way that makes me feel comfortable taking it on trips.
The only real downside is a bit of the L and R buttons towards the center of the device gets covered in plastic, meaning its not quite as satisfying to press those buttons as it would have been if the manufacturer had somehow designed the case different; but in their defense the case doesn't have very many places it can cover while also leaving the UMD drive accessible, so maybe they had to (unlike other reviewers I haven't had problems opening the UMD drive).
One other minor thing I'd have changed- though it doesn't really affect much- is the silly window that lets the screen protector fold up. I bought this to protect the screen so the option of uncovering it doesn't appeal to me, and I worry a bit that it may be possible to push the screen window down against the screen and scratch it (so far this has not happened).
Another positive of this device is the power button- which IMO is stupidly placed in a position where its too easy to accidentally press it, especially if you're holding down the R button with one hand to execute CQC attacks in Metal Gear Solid : Peace Walker- gets covered up by a lot of plastic which makes it a little difficult to press normally but impossible to press unintentionally.
Finally this thing is cheap. I'm really glad I bought this as it was just what I was looking for.
