iStyles5/Not the cheapest product so I was pleased to find it simple to apply and super attractive!F. Jelley, United Kingdom, 5 May 2015
iStyles5/After spending about an hour on the site, I finally had a few choices to compare. My daughter loved one, so we got that style for her DS and I got a different style for my Mac Air. Both arrived quickly and the installation was a snap. I had absolutely no trouble putting these on their devices. Thanks for the great service.A. Walker, United States, 17 June 2014
iStyles5/Thank you for the wonderful skin! We love it very much, it was easy to apply and the print is gorgeous.P. De Meue, Belgium, 1 February 2014
iStyles5/While iStyles have a good customer support service and great delivery speed, I'm obliged to give only 2-stars for the following reasons:M. B C, Canada, 7 December 2013
1. The two Skins I had ordered for my Sony Reader and 3DS XL, while very pretty, were not as good as shown on the website. Their colors are much darker, with a lower image quality/resolution.
2. They are also very, very difficult to apply and they can be scrapped very easily. I scrapped mine, so I asked for a replacement and I got them again.
3. Those Skins leave a strong, old plastic-like odor on the device they are put on as soon as you remove them. I had to leave my Sony device at ’free air’ for one full day to remove the odor. Not very pleasant.
4. If you are carrying your device in a hard case for protection, like the book-style case for the Sony Reader, the skins will peel and get scrapped will the constant removal/put back the device in.
In the end, I did not keep my replacement Skins. The one for my Sony Reader was peel off my device in less than a day (explained in #4), and the other, for my 3DS XL, were too difficult to put on without scrapping it again. That’s why I’m leaving only 2-stars for iStyles and furthermore I do not recommend it. Beside, you cannot get refunded, so I lost some $$$ in all of this.
Thank you for the feedback. We're glad that you liked the service but sorry to hear that it did not work out for you in the end despite the free replacement of Skins that were damaged during the Skin application process.
The Skins have a special weaved adhesive that allow for easy repositioning and bubble free application. However, the actual application mileage varies from person to person and it can indeed take a little more effort for some devices depending on the layout. The final result will be well worth the effort. It is important that the device is well cleaned prior to application. If applied properly and subject to normal wear and tear, a Skin will last for years.
It is indeed possible that the Skins had a "freshly baked" smell as the products were made on demand, they were packed and shipped immediately after production, and you received yours just a week after they were made. We've not had complaints of "odor" from other customers but this "smell" will go away rather quickly as you've experienced.
We are just as disappointed as you are that it did not work out. Thank you for stopping by anyway.
iStyles5/Fantastic selection of products, can be slightly fiddly to apply the finer decals but patience and persistence will reward you with a fantastic looking device. I've ordered from iStyles several times and will be coming back for more soon.T. Kubiak, Australia, 22 November 2013
iStyles5/The materials quality is very good, easy to stick on and off, but the cutting is 3-4mm smaller than the console (3ds xl), as you can see in the photos, what ruins the job. Only buy if your console case matches the skin background or you like the edge color ...D. Torres, Spain, 6 March 2015
Thank you for the review. We're glad that you like the Skin material.
The 3DS XL outer Skin pieces cannot meet the edges because of the way the surface on this device curves towards the edges. If the Skin was cut any larger, unsightly budges will form at the corners.
Skin sets are designed to have as comprehensive a fit as possible but they are limited by the physical layout of the device. Skin sets for devices where there are predominantly flat surfaces (such as a MacBook Pro 15-inch Retina or an iPhone 5s) extend all the way to the edges.
iStyles5/Skins were awesome, fast shipping, safe packaging, quality product. Will order again in the future.L. Brown, United States, 31 July 2013

iStyles5/I'm retarded at putting stickers on.... but it's a good quality skin so it was easy to re-apply several times till I had it in a half decent spot.J. Mocsay, Australia, 17 May 2013
iStyles5/5 stars to iStyles!! My 3DSXL skin match perfectly to my console! It definitively worth the price because they are made with strong vinyl. I was able to remove and replace it as often as I wanted while applying!E. Memeteau, France, 23 April 2013
Plus I received it shortly, so, I'm glad!!
iStyles5/I just received my skin I ordered for my 3DS XL. It fits like a glove and looks fantastic!! It was so easy to put on and the cut on it is perfect!!! Your product is of high quality and the material is of thick vinyl material. It is not made of paper and will not rip.J. Wagner, United States, 26 March 2013

iStyles5/For almost a month before I discovered iStyles, I was desperately looking for casings for my 3DS XL to make it stand out. Thanks to iStyles, my 3DS XL is making my friends' gaming consoles envious.E. Merene Jr., Philippines, 11 February 2013
Good job on your skins! More power to iStyles!
This was not my first order, but it was my first custom order. I chose to order a skin for my Kobo GLO with an image of my horse and a citation form a French author. I had a lot of fun to design the image and when I finally sent it to iStyles, I couldn't wait to see the results. And I was thrilled when it arrived ! It was so beautiful and it really suits my Kobo. Now, I know that my next order for my iPhone will be a custom skin and nothing else. :-)Samantha Terrasse, Switzerland
