One piece of info you should know, is that while the title says "16 game card slots with SD slots", this does not mean that you can keep 16 games in this thing as well as your SD cards. The SD slots are small plastic clips the same size as a game cartridge that clip into one of the 16 game cartridge slots. Therefore you can either hold 16 games, 15 games and 1 card, or 14 games and 2 cards.

p.s. for some reason amazon seem to have the listed as a game for some reason. Therefore the "5 star" system is a bit odd.
Having said that, it does actually take 3DS cards, although they have to be fitted in a way that the top 2 are right way up and the bottom two upside down but with the label still on the top side. This is not a bad arrangement anyway because it keeps all the electrical contacts in the middle of the holder so that when you prise a card out you do so on an edge that is solid without the contacts
The case is a hard plastic and I have my doubts about how long it will last before it cracks or the plastic tab that keeps it closed breaks off. Had a more flexible plastic been used I would have given it five stars, but as it is, it just does not feel durable.
If it lasts then, I would say its a great case as cards are held securely in two trays that hold four cards on each side. The SD card inserts it comes with allow you to store up to 2 SD cards instead of a game cards.
- noisy when shaking (like when in a bag), the game 'sheets' are a bit loose and rattle against the sides
- the game 'sheet' hinges dont look particularly sturdy, each one is connected at both sides but another connection in the middle of the hinge would make me feel more reassured
- the button to open the clasp is a bit wide, its easy to only hit one side of the button which wont open the case (minor annoyance)
... also worth noting the the SD card slots are adaptors that fit into game slots, so its actually 16 games or 15 games and 1 SD card or 14 games and 2 SD cards
However I did have a problem with trying to open it. The clasp was stiff & wouldn't open at first, it took a bit of pressure to open, but once opening I then had problems trying to get the game cards into the slots, they need a bit of pressure to put in to keep in place & stable which is what you need. It is designed for this & at the end of the day thats what you want. For some people they would not have this problem but I have arthritus which makes it harder for me.
Because of this I've only given it a 4 star rating. Its a good idea at a good price. It does what it says on the tin, just wished it stated this when buying it.
I say the downside is the feel of the plastic and the way it was designed. It looks and feels like you can't let it get damaged otherwise it will break, like a toy.
I reccomend this to anyone who looks after their belongings.
