Really great if your in the niche that this almost fills

Summary: In case this review is too long, I'll give you the BLUF (bottom line, up front): I want so much to like this platform. I keep getting so into gaming on it, and then put it down for weeks. Since I still pick up my (very) old and battered PSP and play a few sports games on it from time to time, I am sure that I'll stick with the Vita long enough to make this a lasting (if not on-again off-again) relationship. The bad? The OS is childish and strange.
Summary: Love the platform of the vita. The games are great and the experience is wonderful. However I think my vita may have a defect. The wifi is spotty at best. Even when directly next to my router it has only 40% signal. So the remote play does not work well at all for me, downloading games takes days, and any online activity has the potential to drop connectivity. Seeing as this is an import I am not certain how to go about getting a replacement.
Summary: The Vita is actually an excellent handheld, and I really don't understand why more people don't have one. I've probably spent about $200 or so in the PS Store just on Vita games. The screen is very bright and vibrant, and it's just big enough to enjoy full length movies (such as The Lego Movie that I bought for it). However, this specific purchase did not meet my expectations: - Right out of the box, the Vita's 'X' and 'O' button's controls were switched.
Summary: I just got this in the post today from japan from a different website for $230. I was very impressed when I opened the box. It looks really good in this color. The black version looks so much cheaper and attracts fingerprints as soon as you take it out of the box. I also have the original version, but wanted an ''upgrade''. After a full charge, I turned it on and was immediately disappointed by the lack of color the screen produced.
Summary: On a fateful evening, whilst lurking the neogaf boards, I came across a thread alerting readers to the sudden and inexplicable availability of the Crystal White Vita -- heretofore only found within a long-discontinued Assassin's Creed Promotional bundle. Already owning an array of current and not-so-current Nintendo handhelds, I had no real urge to warrant the Crystal White a second glance; until however, some mention was made of the OLED screen.
