Pros: It does what it's advertised to do. It'll fit a 2.5" HDD/SDD and allow connection with computers that have a sufficient number of USB ports to run it. My primary reason for getting this case was to use it with the Wii U along with an older Western Digital Laptop HDD for added storage space. It works quite well for that when formatted in FAT32, though the Wii U will also ask to format it just to make sure things work.
Cons: I wish more was included to give the drive more of a snug/secure fit. Mine doesn't do much moving, but if I had to take it around with me often I probably would not have bought this case (or, at a minimum, spent some money on extra internal padding.)READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It's an SD card, so there's not a whole lot to say about it. It's storage space is what was advertised, the speeds are comparable to everything else in the price range, and it's got a TON of space on it. I'm using it on the New Nintendo 3DS, and I'm pretty sure it's the last microSD card I'll have to buy for the next several years.
Cons: No downsides to speak of.
Other Thoughts: This might be different between sellers, but despite not being pictured here my microSD card was shipped with the SD card adapter. Don't rely on my word for it though, ask the seller if it's important to you.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Protective Clear Crystal Armor Case Hard Shell Cover for NEW Nintendo 3DS
Pros: The case itself is quite solid and fits very nicely over the Nintendo New 3DS XL, doing a great job of protecting the console from minor damage such as dents and dings. I'm not sure how well it'd hold up to any significant drops, but most hard cases aren't good at absorbing an impact like that.
It covers the front and back plates very well, leaving room exposed for the two cameras on the front, and the game cart slot, headphone jack and stylus on the bottom. If you have any decals/designs on your N3DS XL, it will show VERY clearly through the case (which is why I bought a clear one.) So, if that's what you want, this is a very high value purchase for the price!
Cons: What it covers is in line with what other cases cover, but partly due to the nature of how the N3DS opens, when the system is closed it leaves the "joint" area exposed on the top plate. Sadly there's not much they could have done about this, so don't think too harshly of it because of that.
In addition, the case also makes it impossible to use the charging stands currently being sold on the market (as of me writing this.) The charging contacts/port are still exposed, but it just outright won't fit in the enclosure.
While neither of those are REALLY the case's fault, it's still annoying enough that it's worth docking an egg.
Other Thoughts: For what you're paying, it's hard to beat this case. The only other clear case currently on the market has some fit issues that simply don't exist here. I do wish it felt more protected against drops instead of just scratches and scrapes, but that's just the nature of things I suppose.READ FULL REVIEW
