I wish I'd bought this before I killed my first 2DS XL
Reviewed in the United States on February 26, 2019
First let me admit that I am hard on my electronics and I broke my beloved Nintendo 2DS XL. I used it all the time and when I'd go somewhere I'd just throw it in my backpack. I didn't have any screen protector nor outside armor on my device. I didn't even put it into a special case. Then one day it only showed a blank screen when I tried to use it.
I had to send it off to Nintendo for repair. I immediately went online looking for protection for my 2DS XL and found this. I ordered clear armor that fits on my device, screen protectors, and this special case to put it all in once I got my 2DS XL back.
NOTE: This comes with screen protectors, so now I have extras.
Once I'd gotten my 2DS XL back I immediately put the clear armor on it, then promptly dropped it. The armor saved my device!
When I put my 2DS XL into my backpack, it goes into this special case FIRST. I've carried it around with me several places and I usually am as hard on my backpack as I am on my other things. I tend to drop my backpack down wherever I am or throw it into a back seat. Since I've been using this case, my 2DS XL seems to be much happier than its ever been. It doesn't have that 'deer in the headlights' look when I open it up like it used to before I got this case.
I like that it has little holders for my other DS game cartridges as well as a nice, BIG stylus. I didn't think I'd need the stylus because my 2DS XL has a built-in stylus, but when I put the clear armor on my 2DS XL it makes it a little more difficult to access the built-in stylus even though there's an opening for accessing it. Plus the stylus on a 2DS XL is, well, very small compared to the one on the 2DS or the 3DS.
So overall, I'm really, really glad I bought this and wish I'd bought it at the same time that I originally got my 2DS XL. Going forward, I'm going to get armor and cases for all my mobile devices. Keeps them alive much longer!
