Summary: So, the top/bottom Pink Panels have obviously been applied or removed for some reason. There was a hairline crack on one of the hinges. Other than that the device plays great, no internal damage to be found. Arrived fast and hasn't shown any sign of "failure" from a technical stand-point. Was used and showed it but the device was definitely reset to factory defaults before it arrived.
Summary: Okay, I got this for my son for his graduation, and the system's okay, but there were several things wrong that I would like to see corrected in the future. First, the top screen is scratched. This isn't much of a problem, but when using the 3D, it's very visible and it's pretty irritating. Second, they sent the wrong charger. It didn't work with the system. They sent a DS Lite charger.
Summary: Is a japanese product, so is pretty good designed. This version fits better on your hands than the tinny 3ds or the ds, however the joystic pad could be cut poorly and have little edges sticking out sometimes. I'm not a fan of the software, they could use a more friendly system, and by friendly I mean something with more polished, I know is a kids game console, but not all the time, big part of the owners in Japan are young adults.
Worth the Money -- Kids and People that Like Nintendo Will Love It

Summary: I bought this as a gift. The recipient was my daughter. She loves it. Heck, I love it. I really must get some with it. I think the available games would bore me after a while. In part, such boredom is due to the fact that the screen is small I like big TV sized screens. Of course it would not be a really well executed portable game machine, then. Would it? The 3D effect is fair but I felt eyestrain after a bit when I was able to test it.
Summary: I grew up on Nintendo... but I'm just nto feeling it.... very low content coming out for their systems... all of them... not to many good games out there. If I had to do it again I'd buy a PSP... Also don't like the fact that your Nintendo account is linked with the Serial number.. So If i put $100 on my nintendo account for Digital download.... that money and those games are actually connected with this system and can't be transferred..
Summary: I am a long time gamer and have owned most major systems since the original NES. After taking some years off from Nintendo while playing xbox and playstation, I decided I would rekindle some of that childish spirit with a new Nintendo system. I found the interface to be quite pleasant and screen size was more than adequate for an adult. Games like Mario 3D land and Pokemon play great and feel natural on the system. The ergonomics were the biggest draw back for me.
