    So I was looking around dealextreme (pretty much the only place i can afford) for new NDSL housing because my sister dropped my DS and it shattered, but it still works.

    Now I'm trying to decide which color I should get to replace it. I got bored of the white DS and was thinking of changing it to some other color. Now I'm looking for some opinions from people from which on to get. It would be great if you posted your opinion or listed a site and a case that looks better. Oh yea I have a white flash cart, if that matters.

    Here are some of the cases I was thinking of getting:
    Translucent Blue: http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.10859
    Black Housing: http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.7276
    Translucent Black: http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.10858
    Translucent Clear: http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.10860
    Crimson Black: http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.12695
    Red Housing: http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.12694

    Those are the 6 housing that are interesting on Dealextreme, but the TRANSLUCENT BLUE and the pure BLACK housing seemed the best. The black housing seemed simple and nice, but one reason that I don't want it is because my cousin has a black nds... But I still don't know which housing to get, the crimson black one looks nice also. But the reason I want the translucent blue was so it would stand out more but it not all the great.

    So post your opinion or any suggestions to websites or cases that look better. ALSO VOTE!!!

    Thank YOU! [​IMG]

    You've read this thread, right?
    If you're only concerned about the color really,
    I'd suggest going for the Red Housing.
    Don't know about the quality / build, but it looks eye-catching.

    Yes I have, but I'm having trouble deciding the color.

    ALSO, does anyone know where a green replacement housing can be found?

    red or Crimson Black, why would you want to get a normal boring black replacement case?

    Plain black cause everyone i asked out of GBAtemp said to get plain black.

    That green one looks ok, but how about translucent blue? I saw it on the review, it look pretty good.

    And they say the quality of the cases from dealextreme are good. How about ghost cases? Like the green on above?

    It's not plain red, it's metallic. The inside of the ds is the same as the outside with it. So I bet it would get a ton of fingerprints.

    Crimson Black or Translucent Blue. Crimson Black because the bottom is matte, so that means better grip and that's different than most DS's. Translucent Blue because it's just cool, it stands out and will turn heads all the time.

    If it were me personally I would still get the metallic red though. Mainly because that's one of my favorite colors, secondly it stands out just like the translucent blue would, thirdly all of my other electronics I carry with me are red too.

    Well, I'd go for the whole Red..
    But isn't it actually matter of personal taste.....Why would you buy casing we choose for you?! Buy the one you like the best!!

    To me, of all those, Red looks most interesting, as I haven't seen them around..

    The sooner you make your decision the sooner you get to rock your DS again!! Shipping from dealextreme isn't exactly lightning fast. =P
