3.0 out of 5 stars Good for the price, but not what I really wanted. 20 Sept. 2013
By JBV VINE VOICE
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
Not really sure what this case is trying to be. If it's a protective case, then it's a 1 star item. Drop the controller in this case and there's no shock absorbent material inside, so the pad will still receive the full blow. It's not designed for protection from liquids either.

It's too smooth to aid grip, but at least it doesn't get in the way. The buttons are all easily accessible.

The one nice feature is the stand on the back. I have a deluxe version, which comes with a small black stand for the pad (mainly used when watching films.) this seems to be more stable and cannot get knocked onto the floor, where the black one seems to disappear in the shadows.

Personally, I think I would have preferred a shock absorbing silicon case.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good product with a few niggles 7 Aug. 2013
By Mr. T. Ralph VINE VOICE
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Every Wii U comes with a Game Pad input device, which this product is used to protect. As you can't currently buy new Game Pads separately, it's important to keep the included device in good condition.

The case is see-through and has holes for the appropriate buttons, as well as the charging port at the bottom. It is easy to attach and the Game Pad fits on the charging dock with the case attached. While I haven't tried tests such as dropping the Game Pad for obvious reasons, it seems like it would provide reasonable resistance. There's a hard unfoldable stand built into the case which allows you to prop up the Game Pad on a table for games where it's used only as a secondary screen.

On the minus side, the stand at the back, when folded down, makes the case uncomfortable to hold (but you can open the stand). And as a hard plastic case, it can get sweaty during long gaming sessions. A silicone case might be better for people who would find these an issue. The case does not provide any substantial protection against liquid spills due to the number of holes.

3.0 out of 5 stars Hard plastic cover 7 April 2014
By Smallvillenews VINE VOICE
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I don't really know what I can say about this cover really, other than that it is made of a hard clear plastic that clips easily over the Wii U hand held unit. It is good for stopping the unit itself from getting scuffed up, but if it were dropped from any height I don't think this cover would protect it at all and it would probably crack very easily and break. So don't use this as a form of breakage protection, because it isn't, it is merely a cover to protect from scuffing the unit itself.

It has a stand than you can pull out, so that if you are using this on a surface like a table, you can prop it up at an angle rather than hold it in your hands, which is only really useful if you are watching something on it to be honest, because I think it is easier to keep it flat when not in use. In fairness I would say if you like to keep your consoles looking pristine, then this is useful for keeping it scratch free, but other than that it has no other purpose, so bear this in mind before you purchase it.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent 31 Dec. 2013
By Tinksjane VINE VOICE
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
Excellent sturdy and very good quality case to fit the wii u pad controller in. Fits like a glove and the is extremely comfortable to hold. I believe that this will protect from lots of bumps and scrapes that will likely happen along the way and because its clear plastic does not detract from the original look of the pad controller. Fits neatly in charger when on the pad too, so does not stop you from charging unit. Extremely good product that we fully recommend.

1.0 out of 5 stars Makes a bulky controller even bulkier 19 Oct. 2013
By 411 VINE VOICE
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
OK, my biggest issue with this case is in the title - it's pretty thick plastic, and if the GamePad wasn't big enough already, this case makes it bulkier still.

The plastic used feels cheap and brittle. What's more, just like the GamePad itself, the front is glossy plastic and the rear is slightly frosted. Why they couldn't just use the slightly frosted plastic is beyond me.

Being clear also means you're going to see all sorts of dust and dirt trapped in between the case and the GamePad itself. There's going to be a lot of that, too. Even when secured with the four clasps, there are large uneven gaps between the front and rear.

The biggest seller for this case, however, is perhaps kick stand. However, when holding the GamePad as normal and with the kickstand closed, your fingers rest on it constantly. This is because the stand is a separate piece of plastic on top of the back cover.

The only half decent thing about this for me is that it fits on the power cradle thing without being removed.

I will, however, be removing this case after writing this review.

Fits snugly around the Wii U controller, with its clear plastic body, you barely notice its even there. Great for protecting an expensive gadget! Also, very reasonably priced! I have previously had AmazonBasics products and I must say they work perfectly at half the price!

2.0 out of 5 stars Good for what it is......but what is it? 9 April 2014
By J. Walsh VINE VOICE
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This kickcase stands is made out of quite strong plastic and covers the handset really well with all nobs etc accessable. However I am not really sure what this is trying to be, The plastic is so hard it is unlikely that it would stop any damage if dropped, if the kids are fighting over over the controller I suppose it would help it not to get to many fingerprints etc on the fine piano black controller but I really do think that this is perhaps a waste of time and money
