The very soft case "melted" into the DSL. Install was easy: just slip the DSL into the case matching the top & bottom portions. The case has a good grip, & protects the shiny DS from minor damage & blemishes. The material & color seem to be the same as a car tire. The case may not be for sweaty palms & very hot surfaces. It has a bit of new car smell to it. Don't leave it in a vehicle under the sun in the summer. I think there's a market for DS/PSP customization. The very facts that the DSL was sold out at launch in Japan & every new DSL color moves the hardware sales number north is saying something. For less than $3 US including shipping, the soft silicon case is a cheap insurance for the DSL: keeps the DSL in mint condition & resale value high. Thanks, DealExtreme, for the deal.

The retail English R4DS I got came in the same package as pictured, except for the cyan/light blue color of the carrying strap & container. It's very easy to use: just drag & drop files from PC to micro SD. The main menu loads in 2 seconds, has brightness & soft-reset settings & lets you browse through every folder. It runs all the popular online & offline games I've tried & saves the WiFi settings & game progress. The freezing issue with some micro SDs & Castlevania PoR is non-existent. I love the theme customization: download & unzip themes into micro SD. The ability to load & bookmark ebooks or plain text files is a bonus: you don't need a computer or PDA to look up gamefaqs.com's guides while playing a RPG. It even goes back to your last bookmark in the book/file. The soft-reset resets the DS to the main menu. Best of all, the DS doesn't have to be flashed to a custom firmware. There's no risk in bricking the DS. Coming from a PSP background where I just hook up PSP to PC via USB to transfer data, it's an inconvenience to eject the very tiny micro SD & insert it into an SD adapter to transfer files. I've read about the spring issue with the R4SD. I think they should design a USB-to-R4DS adapter or a R4DS with USB connection. The transfer rate is slow, regular 900 kB/s or hi-speed 10 MB/s for micro SD VS regular 1.875 MB/s or hi-speed 10 MB/s for Memory Stick Pro Duo. The R4DS design is ingenius. The documentation could be better written: divide it into a quick-start guide & a user's manual with troubleshooting at the end, & it should be in Acrobat PDF format. Even the free OpenOffice can export to PDF. The R4DS is the best DS investment I've made. The low price includes shipping. The wait was about 2-3 weeks. Payments are handled by Paypal. DealExtreme answered all my emails. I'm getting a 2nd one for a friend.
