    I'm looking for a coloured hard case for my DS Lite, but one that offers some sort of protection from drops as well as scratches. I had a poke around the forums and found a couple posts from people, but they're old now. Anyway, I found THIS one (also from RenChi.com) and it seems pretty good. It's hard plastic on the outside and soft silicon on the inside, so it SHOULD offer a bit of protection if it gets dropped from minimal heights. Thinking of getting the white+aqua one so I can put the white one on my onyx DS Lite. I reckon that looks pretty classy.

    Does anyone have one of these cases? Could some generous individual please take some pics of this case?

    I'd like to know if it fits well on the DS and if the DS closes properly when it's installed. Also if there's any sharp edges or other annoyances that make it less-than-perfect.

    Alternatively, I'm looking at the Dragon DS Lite Guard Mask which has a more rubbery feel with better grip. But I can't find that one anywhere other than KickGaming.com and they only take Paypal.

    Open to other suggestions, but these two seem the best so far.

    The first case you're looking at is a black horns polycarbonate case with a silicon padding thing. it's pretty decent and I know a couple of people who have it. It's pretty sweet and the silicon protects the ds from dust scratches from the polycarbonate case. my only gripe with it is that it makes your ds huge (think ds phat) and a bit heavy and good lick fitting your ds in you pocket.

    Me, I just use a leatherette case for my ds [​IMG] I believe you can find it named as a ds lite smart case.

    miikes: Yep, that's the one. Cheers. I didn't really notice just how big the black horns case really is until you mentioned it. Now I'm thinking twice about it. Don't particularly want to add more weight to it if I can help it. Though it does look sweet and seems pretty solid. But I guess you can't have loads of protection without the added size + weight.

    Found a few more pics of it as well, someone's added some paper/cardboard underneath the plastic. Looks mad.
