    Hori's can be found in EB or Gamestop.

    Dealextreme has a few cases that are pretty handy. I got a crystal case from them, and I've dropped the ds once, and it didn't break. Make sure you read the review before ordering them though. I also got the genuine hori Screen protecter from them.

    Surprisingly, it arrived exactly 2 weeks after.

    You can get like 5 of them on ebay for real cheap, they are hori however ive seen a lot of fakes going around. As for case, the black rubber one i have now fits like a glove and very cheap.

    the fake horis from DX work fine. but if you are willing to spring for the real horis, you might as well go all the way and get this instead - the horis will eventually scratch and by the time you buy two you'll wish you had this one instead.

    i like the invisibleshield thing
    just a lil pricey
    would it be ok if i just bought a lot of them 2-3$ 'fake' ones
    and then used em after another if they break?
    or would it be better if i bought hori's and used them longer?

    I would recommend Hori's over anything else. Those suckers stay on there for a long, long time.

    Also, I bought an 'Invisible Shield' for my DS and it does the job fine. I like the fact that I can still see the color of my DS thru the case...I'm weird.

    It all depends on what you want your case to do:
    * Do you want it to be see-through? (Hori or Capdase's crystal cases should do the job, just fine. Capdase doesn't use clips to hold you DS lite in to place, Hori does)
    * You wish to have better grip? (NERF armour or any silicon type will comply to your needs)
    * Shock protection (the best from what I know would be the NERF armour)

    As for screen protection, Hori, Capdase, Pelican do a good job.

    anyone have suggestion for a crystal case (clear) for my ds?
    i see many on dealextreme but i dont know which one

    oh and im also looking for a case
    like not one that protects my ds but so i can carry it and put the games and stuff
    suggestions?

    i might just stick to dealextreme
    or maybe ebay

    I'm not sure which would be best, you would do well to read the reviews they offer on-site on the article. I myself prefer to buy Hori or Capdase, but in the end it comes down to how much you are willing to spend.
    I have bought a lot of things at DealExtreme too and their after-service is great, if I may say so, but if you want to be sure I'd say put in a few more bucks and buy a Hori Clear Case elsewhere like Play-Asia or so.

    Anyway have fun shopping around.
