Summary: If you want to enjoy this DS Lite, make sure you do your research. Multiple things can go wrong because Gamestop has applied the "refurbish" tag onto this product when in reality all they did was repackage the system.
Summary: I got this when i was about 5 and it was fun but when i got to be about 7 this got to kiddy for me. I never sold my ds it has bean in the attic for about 5 years collecting dust. the one good thing about the ds lite is that it is realy duribal.
Summary: My DS lite was a great system. After a fatal (for the DS Lite) fall I got a DSI for Christmas. Let me tell you right now I am really glad the DS Lite took that fall. The DSI has much more functions and is really easy to grip onto when compared to a DS Lite.
Summary: This system is great for younger kids but begins to loose it's effect later on. Although the gameplay is impressive the fun eventually fades. The Ds Lite is basically starts off fun and excititng but gets boring and dull later on. It was only fun for a week or two before it got boring pretty quick.
Summary: As an owner, i know first-hand that it's not reallyworth the money.it's slow, gets scratches easily, and isn't as cool as its new generations.Buy it if you can't get a dsi or 3ds, but if you can, get the 3DS!
Summary: I own this and a PSP slim and have to say when you compare the two side by side, the PSP smacks down on the DS. I know everyone has their own opinions and that's fine, but here's my reasons.
Pros: Descent battery life, LOTS of games, quick shut off time when you slide the power button (PSP requires you to keep holding in the button until it shuts off completely).
Cons: while I emphasized LOTS of games, the quality of those games in my opinion is pretty low most of the time. It's like nintendo lets rushed games get out there without real quality testing. Lacks the graphical power of say the PSP. Too many kid oriented games and not enough to appeal to the adults....
Summary: expected something new for the retail price. it'll be hard to returned it since shipping it back will cost 20 percent of the price of this item. I doubt it was damage during shipping since the missing piece of plastic that came off the cracked portion was never found inside the box.
Pros: polar white is nice. works out of the box and reason why below
Cons: normally if the console is new you will need to charge the battery. why did it power up without charging? i checked the box and it had evidence of either an open box item or someone returned it and swap out the ds. there is a crack on one side and the tape that tapes the plastic doesnt stick anym...
Nintendo cheapens out on the Crimson/Black DS Lite

Summary: I was so excited to received the new Crimson & Black DS Lite. I even sold my Onyx one. When I started using it, I noticed right away that the screen quality was different. When you tilted it forward or back, visibility would be far worse. This was not a problem with the previous models.
