Outdated tech

Tom Roberts, Amazon
26 July 2012
  • Summary: The technology is clumsy to use and outdated. You have much better options now, but touch phones kinda spoiled us for that I suppose.

OK Product, if DHL ever delivers it!

ejwitt, Amazon
21 December 2007
  • Summary: Pros: -It does allow web browsing on a DS Lite -Reasonably easy to configure -Supports AOSS standard which simplifies connection to AOSS-capable access points (like Buffalo's models). The linking process is pretty simple with this standard. Cons: -Slow. Yes, really. Even with broadband, no congestion, and the AP transmit/receive settings configured they way their instructions specify. It's slow.

Something's Better Than Nothing

Alexander Wilke, Amazon
3 October 2007
  • Summary: The DS Browser was a great idea that was poorly executed. Seeing as how this comes from the same group that made Opera Mini, it is a huge disappointment. Despite the fact it's an overall disappointment I still think the DS Browser is better than nothing. The navigation is about as easy as you would expect. You tap links to open them and you drag pages up and down to read them.

its slow, but it works

Merch A. DeGrasse, Amazon
6 September 2007
  • Summary: This browser works in a pinch. It's slow, and if you use windows live hotmail you will need to set it to the "Classic" setting or you will have a very long wait for your email. Clever use of the two screens to pan around the pages.

A decent browser for certain occassions

Ivan, Amazon
6 September 2007
  • Summary: This isn't exactly the fastest browser out there, but it gets the job done. This browser isn't exactly a replacement for a laptop or home computer either. It's good if you're in your room and just want to check something out online real quick without getting up (assuming you keep your DS next to you at all times like i do :) ) However, when I bought this browser I knew what i was getting into.

Slow and tricky to work with

Kernykaleyfan "Maureen", Amazon
27 June 2007
  • Summary: We've had this DS Lite Browser (using Opera software) for only a few days, and have had no problem connecting to our wireless broadband service at home (SBC/Yahoo). Was able to access blogs, websites, weather, news, and images. Just for an experiment, I typed in "Brad Pitt" for images, and it came in with clear images of that hunky guy. My only problem is that I'm not able to (yet) access any of our email services. I have tried Yahoo's and Hotmail's, but no luck.

The extremes are a bit silly...

Michael P. Stueber, Amazon
20 June 2007
  • Summary: ...the moderate reviews are spot-on. The browser _is_ slow, sometimes frustratingly so. And it's a bit of a pain to use, as the display's smooshed and typing is a chore (though this may be common to other portable web devices). But if you already own a DS, this doodad gives you basic portable web access for thirty bucks, and that's a fair price in my book. This is a basic tool, not an entertainment device.

No Flash Player

Bud, Amazon
12 June 2007
  • Summary: I purchased this browser for my 9 year old who likes to play games on the internet. I did not realize that you could not download any of the flash players. It does work and you can look at web pages and do searches but I would not buy this for a young child. It is more for an older person who just wants to look at the news etc.

WARNING

Adrienne Frederick "Vomonte", Amazon
5 June 2007
  • Summary: Be sure to check the version of the browser you are getting! My boyfriend picked this up for me when it just came out, and unfortunately I discovered after opening it that it is for the DS Lite. I happen to have the old DS and the extra memory card that comes with the browser will not fit in the old style. (It is smaller, designed to fit flush in the Lite gameboy advance game slot.) You need the memory card to use the browser.
