    -Intro

    Well, on with the case reviews. Today I will review the Leather DS Lite Keys Factory Case. I got this one off ebay for pretty cheap, around 12.00 USD with shipping. Mine did not come with any packaging, but by using this website that GBAtemp user Scrawl posted I was able to determine that my case is genuine, (and it does not smell)

    -Contents/Features

    Sad to say that despite the well crafted leather of this case, the features are lacking. It holds a DS lite, it velcos closed, and it could be used as a key chain if you wanted. It comes with a DS Lite strap, which is great because the US DS Lites did not come with one, and Nintendo stole my thumb strap from my Phat DS when I sent it in for a pixel fix.

    The DS Lite is well protected in this case. It fits very snug, and It looks "professional", by this I mean you probably could take it to the office and people would think its a PDA or some other work type of electronic. There are black elastic straps on either side which keep your DS Lite in place, and it closes with a velcro latch on the top that is a nice size it stays together well.

    -Overall

    I have to say this is a nice case, it does not have a place to hold anything other than a DS Lite, but Keys Factory makes a nice DS game holder to go with this case. You can get it in different colors so you do not have to be stuck with white. I would have liked to see a pocket on the front that holds one or two extra ds games, and maybe a side extra stylus holder. I think if you dont switch games out very often, this would be a great case to get.

    Pros
    -nice leather
    -modern looking, great style
    -comes with a DS Lite strap.
    -Great price on ebay

    Cons
    -does not hold anything other than the system
    -beware of fake cases, make sure you have a trusted buyer
    -some have claimed that the leather smells bad, mine does not, but this would be a huge con if it did
    -I have read that other color cases, the dye may rub off onto your DS, esp if its fake.
