    Hey, I was planning to replace my DSi's home shell and was wondering if anyone can recommend me a case.
    All I'm really looking for is good feedback from anyone who's replaced theirs, like:
    If it fits nicely (not too loose or creaky)
    Responsive Buttons
    And if it feels like a toy from a Chinese dollar store.
    Anything around 20$ is fine, and color/design is pretty irrelevant.
    Semi-related, I replaced my PSP's case a little while ago (with the help of the excellent guide here) and it feels alright. Buttons are a bit stiff, but at least they don't get stuck anymore.

    Thanks in advance everyone.

    I got one from DealExtreme but its cracking and it feels really cheap.
    Ascetically it looks awesome (clear) but it was a hair to small and the pieces done fit perfectly

    I second this - I got my DS (not-i) housing from dealextreme for about $17 - it is great, no crackings or like. So the quality really differs.
    But prior to ordering I have read every single comment and review on all availalable items.
