Not worth the money.

  • Summary: Yeah, it works... BUT no flash support, no audio, no video, and very slow, so what's the point? My son was very disappointed that he can't watch You Tube videos or listen to music. The DS does not have the hardware to support any USEFUL internet browsing.

Sooo slooow

  • Summary: I eagerly awaited the release of the Opera browser for the DS. My girlfriend tried to talk me out of buying it, but I had faith in Opera after using the top notch Wii browser. Now, I have buyer's remorse. Before I bought it, I had already come to terms with it's lack of Flash.

Great implementation. DS falls short.

  • Summary: The software is stupendous, and would earn 5 stars on its own. Unfortunately for today's internet the DS just doesn't have the power you need. No flash is liveable, but the render times are crippling. If all you want to do is read the news and check your email this may be worth it.

*** WAY TOO SLOW -- NOT RECOMMENDED! ***

Bao Lammikins, Amazon

  • Summary: Even with broadband (not like you can use it any other way...) this browser is way, way, way, WAY too slow. I'm returning mine. No need for a review. You can read other people's reviews if you're that curious. Trust me, it doesn't matter how well designed it is. (It kind of is.) It is unusable.

The browser that takes the fun out of browsing the Internet

jlgran, Amazon
26 June 2007
  • Summary: I expected too much from the Nintendo DS (Lite) Browser. When I heard the browser was from Opera, I jumped to make this purchase. Over the last few months I've used Opera Mobile on my Samsung A900 cell so I thought this would be as good (if not better). I was only in for a huge disappointment.

Not what you're expecting

S Kim "Need More Reads", Amazon

  • Summary: The Nintendo DS Browser functionality is far too limited to be of any real, fun use. The greatest problem I have is the load speed - even when you're connected to a very good hotspot and have image-loading turned off, it'll still take 10 to 20 times longer to load a page than say, a computer.

Would... you... like... to... surf... the... internet... ?

W R, Amazon

  • Summary: If so, be prepared to do a bit of tap, tap, tapping of the fingers. I love my DS, and around 5 years ago, this would have been a decent mobile browser. But today even the most minor websites have lots of data and images to load, all of which will bring your surfing experience to a near standstill.
