    well, i recently brought my DSi with me to go out, and i left it in my pocket. the lint went through my DSi case and on top of the DSi, so when i got home, i decided to take off the case and take off the dust. when i took out the case, the DSi wouldn't fit perfectly, it would make squeeky type of noises. so i was wondering which one is a good case? i got this case atm http://www.realhotstuff.com/ndsi-crystal-case-p-418.html but im planning on buying this one http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.22504 or http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.25739 is this one good? if not, does anyone got any good cases that fits and everything is great?

    All cases are a tight fit, it snaps onto your DSi. You just have to shove the DSi into the clear protective case and leave it there. I recommend the Hori brand transparent clear/colored cases, they seem very durable and good.

    Now and then you'll find lint and debris but just take the DSi out and clean it out.

    The same thing except with no Kingdom Hearts design on it. Half the price, its clear and there seems to be mixed reviews about the product. Doesn't close all the way, visible scratches seen the usual complaints.

    I find my case durable and so far no scratches on my cover since its mostly in my hands or pockets. The DSi fits snugged in, except when you try to close it, it is slightly not closed all the way (most DSi cases have this sort of problem.)

    Yep, same here with my Hori DSi clear case. The case itself closes perfectly fine but because of the hooks, the upper display won't close properly.

    Here, some pics I made from my DSi with case. Hope you can see it.

    This is what I use. I use the black one. I recommend using the black one so you can't notice any dirt. Because the case is rubber-based (plastic inside), you can get smudges but they don't bother me.



    Not sure where you can buy it in a US based shop. It's made by Exspect.

    I got a simple matte-ish case from GameStop. It works fine, and it's clear [though foggy for aesthetic better-ness? Lol.]. It's what I use. I live in FL so I'm not sure it'll make a difference. It's not on their website, though. =/
    G'luck!
