3.0 out of 5 stars A Glorified Dust Cover 9 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase
Note: This product is not compatible with the official Nintendo Wii U Gamepad Stand, or the Nintendo Wii U Charging Dock.

I'd like to say I drink, so I could blame alcohol on my purchasing history, but alas, this one-night credit card binge falls solely on my sober shoulders.

It's a plastic cover, with an Apple-esque dust flap to protect your screen. Which seems decent and all, until you realize that, a) it's not compatible with the official charging dock, because Hori decided to plonk a thick plastic covering on the back of it, and b) it becomes more troublesome to use than redeeming, especially if you use your gamepad for long gaming sessions rather than Netflix. The cover will keep flapping around like a dick in the wind, and eventually you'll give up, take it off, and consider your poor purchasing decisions.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wii U Cover 22 April 2013
By Michael Kerner - Published on Amazon.com
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
When it has came down to the Nintendo Wii U, there have been very few accessories from third-party companies that have been worth their money. But Hori has had some excellent accessories that have been worth the effort for the Wii U and have made some excellent ones for the Wii and 3DS before. This one definitely follows in suit well, with the Wii U Gamepad Face Cover. This is simply a really good accessory that protects and cover the touch screen of the Wii U gamepad, without having any dust or fingerprints all over it, and keeps the screen in full form, when you don't have to use it on your favorite Wii U games like New Super Mario Brothers U. I definitely recommend this as a good buy if you are looking for a little extra protection for the Wii U.

5.0 out of 5 stars Convenient and stylish protection 27 Aug 2013
By Shishimaru - Published on Amazon.com
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
When I'm not using my Wii U remote, it's either charging up or sitting on my couch, coffee table, or somewhere around the living room, and I was always worried about the screen getting sat on or damaged somehow, but zipping it up on a separate case seemed like a pain. Then I found this product and it works great. The shell goes all the way around the back and gives the Wii U pad a bit of grip and added protection, and the front flap folds around and snaps in the back when you're playing. When I'm done playing I flip it back around and don't have to worry about the screen getting damaged. The front is a slightly flexible material but it's definitely strong enough to protect the Wii U pad from pretty much any attack. It also works as a kind of stand, but to be honest I don't use that function very often, I mainly like the protection and the look it gives to the controller. Very unique and cool!

3.0 out of 5 stars I like it as a cover, however it's annoying to play with while on. 26 Oct 2013
By Thomas Kenney - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
As a cover this does a great job of protecting the screen and keeping the dust off of it. However there were two issues I have that make me want to take the whole thing off while playing with the pad.

1) The cover flips behind when it's not covering the screen, however, there is no way to latch it to the back so it kind of flops around and gets in the way.

2) The plastic shell isn't flush with the gamepad and feels uncomfortable when your palm slides from the pad across the shell. It's not as if it's sharp or anything it's just too hard. A minor complaint.

The screen cover will protect against things being placed on top of it or a remote falling on it, but don't expect it to protect against something like being stepped on. So it's better than nothing, but honestly you may as well just find a nice bag to put it in when the pad is not in use.

Protip: The cover comes off at the top. I had a much harder time than I should have opening this up for the first time and the instructions do a terrible job.

3.0 out of 5 stars Its decent 7 Jan 2014
By brandon - Published on Amazon.com

This does exactly what the name suggests, covers the face. It will not cover the area around the buttons or the buttons themselves. Does stop dust on the screen sorta, there still tends to be a bit of dust accumulation due to the fact that the part that covers the face doesn't hug the screen close enough to stop dust. The plastic used feels really cheap and it may save your gamepad if dropped. Don't take the chance of breaking your gamepad especially since right now you cannot purchase a new one. Just get a Travel EVA Protective Case, It works way better and protects it all.
