PS VITA ArmorShell
Useful but not necessary.
I ordered my ArmorShell a couple of weeks ago along with a screen protector. I'm obnoxious with keeping my electronics safe in my pocket and when I'm not using them. All in all, it's a fairly sturdy piece of plastic that is well designed for the most part.
My only problem with the design is that it latches on top, right above where the Vita's game cards are put in. This means, whenever you want to switch games (unless you have them downloaded), you need to open the case up. That's a small personal issue, however.
While it keeps smudges off the handheld itself, the ArmorShell is not smudge resistant itself. You will still need to keep the outside of it clean of finger prints every once in a while.
i like it
i got the armor shell when it first came out and i got to say that it the best thing so far it good if you like keeping your system safe
Does it's job.
This case does exactly what it's supposed to do. It works just fine and the price wasn't terrible. I'd recommend it to anyone that doesn't want their Vita so get scratched up.
its okey but not that great
love the see thru.In the shell gets the job done but looks like it could break easily if your vita is out the shell so be careful and don't let your friend sit on it .Reason for the 8 if you love your vita to death plz get a forward back screen protector cause the back opening area is pretty loose and since it always in my pocket it tends to rub a lot. Gave my lovely lite scratches ;_;
Nice form fitting case for PS Vita
This is a nice form fitting case for the PS Vita, it gives the system a little extra protection. It is not big and bulky like some other cases on the market.
If you're looking for something light weight that doesn't add a lot of bulk to your new PS Vita this is it. Light weight with no bulk makes keeping it in your pockets as easy as if it didnt have the shell on at all. However, parents, please advised that unless your little one is completely accident free I would not recommend this for anyone under the age of 13. Sadly because it is made of plastics it probably wouldn't save the Vita from much damage if dropped. However if you an adult and take emaculent care of your electronics like I do this is a great alternative for. It also comes with a nifty stand to prop your Vita upright for movies.
Good but be wary of cracks
I bought this the day of buying my vita, and as far as I can tell it's design is very well thought out. Clear cases are often very pretty but flimsy, and the plastic seems fairly solid. There's even an extra piece of plastic to cover the back panel when it's not in use. My one gripe about this product that kept it from a ten was my shell had a small crack inside the plastic. It hasn't gotten bigger, and isn't a physical outside crack, just a rough patch in the plastic that retracts from the all around sexiness of a clear case. My advice is when you pick one up at the store, give it a once over for any cracks or blemishes before you purchase. Not a big deal to everyone but I'm really annoying about this stuff.
Keeps Vita safe, but you'll miss your grips!
I purchased this but I miss the grips of the vita, so I sort of put it on when I'm out and about but when at home I enjoy the feel of the vita
Low profile, sturdy, does its job
This little piece of armor is light weight and adds very little thickness to the system, so therefor if you have a sleeve or the pull 'n go portfolio, you can still slide it in easily with little to no hassle. The small stand on the bottom is also very nice and strong and is able to fully support the weight of the system. Not to mention this also protects from scratches and fingerprints on the glossy face of the system, and of course, paired with a screen protector, would ensure the aesthetic safety of you PS Vita system. This comes highly recommended from a daily user of this system.
Great Crystal Case
This is a great crystal case. It fits the vita nice and snugly. I got this over the nerf because it is slimmer and would still fit in my pocket. The little stand part is real nice for watching movies. It has a cove for the rear touch pad which I found odd but somewhat useful. The only thing I dont like is the part that covers the top and snaps the sides together. It covers the game slot so every to you change out a game you have to pop it off then put it back again. Its annoying but doesnt really detract from the case. i definitely recommend it.
