Finally it has arrived! Earlier I had ordered one of those "fabled" scratch proof and damn-near invincible covers for your Nintendo DS Lite. Initially I was sceptical about the claims it had been making but after glancing at some videos on the net, I ordered one with a conservative click. I ordered from "Best Skins Ever" and it was my first time ordering from them so it was a stab in the dark. Unlike another company which supplies a similar product I was extremely satisfied with the coverage provided (the other with a piece of the plastic which covers the speakers and does not include anything for the inside bar the aforementioned and the screens). The product is here @ 10.99 1. It came in the envelope shown above. Initially I was a bit suprised as it lacked any sort of packaging (unlike another company) but it is much cheaper so that's probably why. I opted for free delivery as I was initially sceptical and it took a resonable time to arrive. It is nothing I wouldnt expect from free delivery and from the USA (to UK). I ordered on the 29/06/06, it shipped the same day and it arrived today 05/07/06 taking about 6 days. 2. Here in the picture is the entire contents of the envelope, consisting of: - 1 x invoice / application instructions for ipod ( @_@) - 3 x pieces of the skin for your DS lite. 3. A close up of the skin. You remove each piece by peeling it and it is very easy to do so. 4. I used a bowl of soap which is applied to the back of the skin before I stuck it on and a bowl of boiling water to get rid of dust specks etc. 5. Wetting the pieces of the skin with the soap water (thin layer) you place on skin on your DS lite from one end. You then gently from the end lower the piece of skin onto the DS lite (possibly using a credit card) (I didnt have any bubbles as i systematically moved from the end through the skin to the other end) 6. Apply the rest of the skin as in step 5 and just wait. (For those pesky corners, you can hold your palm over the corner and the heat from your hand will mould the skin into shape) 7. Once finished you leave for about Quote "24 hours". I only did for 6 and it looks pretty sweet (see the pictures) ----------- My Impressions: Delivery: For cheap people like me xD the delivery time was OK but for people who has the money to spend best spend it. The waiting time is a bit long 7/10 (FREEE) Packaging: It's an envelope. Very minimalistic. (if it is that which leads to it's cheap cost, then it's perfectly acceptable) 8/10 (very refreshing change) Application: It took me about 1 hour to apply the entire thing on (maybe sorter because during the process I dropped my Ez-flash IV lite in boiling water >.< it's working fine now though), which is slightly longer than expected. I am not going to sugar coat the process and say that "it's worth it" etc. It is certainly a long time. Patience required. Addition stuff required e.g. soap but should be easy to obtain. 6/10 Fitting: The fit is fantastic everything is picture perfect and fits like a glove to the millimetre. I certainly didnt expect this so it raised my opinion of it. It covers everything shown here: and yes there is a cover for both the screens. 9.5/10 Screen cover: I am sure this is a major worry for everyone ordering this product and the alternative. The coverage of the top screen is perfect and covers the entire area of "glass" for the top screen. Now the touch screen. The plastic that comes with the touch screen is about 2mm smaller than the top screen cover and that is to allow people to extract it easily. Many say the sensitivity is reduced with these plastics. I can confirm that in sessions of Trace Memory, Rub Rabbits, NSMB (minigames), Bleach DS and Brain Training that: The sensitivity is THE SAME AS BEFORE! (obviously I am not saying it's the EXACT same but it just isnt possible to tell) Also lots of people have been worried about the reduced brightness and.. *just look at the pictures* 8/10 ---------- The DS Lite's Best Skin Ever Skin (< lol) gets a 77% or 38.5/50 --------- Now for some random pictures! ------ Side notes: All you guys can now drop your Ez-Flash IV lite into boiling water and FEEL SAFE that it will still work! Hope you guys enjoyed this!
