The Nerf case lets you protect your Nintendo DS Lite at the right price. It has a lot more pros than cons. A case is really required equipment for any DS purchase, and this is one that should definitely be at the top of your list.
Pros + Durable Nerf material provides a nice secure cushion to protect your NDS + Great design leaves open access to your stylus, controls and game slots!! + Cool color options including black, blue, pink, white and grey + Affordable price point (although I imagine it might go on sale from time to time) + Light Nerf material feels good in your hand, a true play-thru case
Cons - Adds a lot of size due to the thick padding - All available colors not listed here on Amazon
First of all, this Nerf material has some give to it. As such, this case is by far THE BEST when exposed to the drop test. Instead of cracking the case, the cushiony material will bounce slightly and in most cases keep your NDS intact.
Second, this case is well designed with open areas to access ALL those controls, game slots, and key features of your game player. That includes open spots for the headphone jack, volume control, and stylus! My first game case didn't have this feature, and it's taken me 3 cases to land on this one.
The main downside to this guy is the added thickness of the case. At this size, they could have added more extras. Additionally, some colors seem to not be sold on Amazon, namely the grey.
Still, this case does the job at a fair price. The Armor-Lite case by Joytech also has slots for your stuff, and is a lot less bulky. Nintendo DS Lite Armor Lite Case However, that case doesn't provide the same level of protection as the Nerf material does.
If you are like me and protecting your case is priority #1, get this case! If you need something more sleek and less bulky, the clear armor-lite should be on your list.
