Great product. If you love to make your handhelds have a more sleek look to it with a nice solid grip then this is the case that you should get. I had a crystal case before this but it was somewhat flimsy and it was really the only accessory at the time since I got my Vita at launch. I have a long history of buying cases for my handhelds since the original Gameboy. I enjoy caring for my handhelds (I still have the battery cover from my 1989 Gameboy which goes to show you that I know how to cater to my handhelds). This case (the blk aluminum metallic edition) is beautiful and it wonderfully snaps all the way around the Vita, caressing it, lovingly : . It doesn't block any of the ports and does not restrict the gameplay. After installing the case, I have dropped by Vita from 2 feet without any damage to either the case or to my Vita.The only cons that I have noticed is that the power button is somewhat difficult to get to. However, you can turn it on with the flesh of your finger and it really isn't an issue. The Start and Restart button on the Vita is difficult to access in the same way but those buttons were always kinda tiny anyway so it's not the case fault.The other con is that dust can sometimes get stuck along the analog stick, along the rim. You may be forced to remove the case to get that cleaned out so be sure to put your Vita away in either a case, put a cloth over it, or place it inside a ziplock bag after use.Best case that I could find for my Vita. Highly recommended.
