The Nintendo 3DS provides an impressive 3D gaming experience without the need for special glasses. There's a 3D effect slider, it shoots and displays 3D photographs with its dual back-facing cameras, and it has a single front-facing camera. The 3DS comes preinstalled with a bevy of software and StreetPass and SpotPass services, and it comes with a drop and charge dock. The eShop, including GBA Virtual Console, Internet browsing functionality, DSiWare transferring, and Netflix support, is coming in May.
The launch lineup is lackluster, and the disappointing low-resolution lenses provide grainy photos. The 3D effect can cause headaches for some, and it can snap out" due to sensitive viewing angles and games that encourage movement. The 3DS has a very short battery life, and most Internet functionality isn't activated at launch. It's also expensive and may not provide enough value and functionality for those looking for an all-in-one device."
Though it's a bit pricey, the Nintendo 3DS successfully offers a glasses-less 3D experience that needs to be seen to be believed. A weaker-than-usual launch lineup and some inactivated online features dampen its launch, but the future certainly looks bright.

Overall, I gave the Nintendo 3DS 4/5 stars. The game selection is still growing, the features (including the 3D) is very well put together, and it's relatively easy to use. However, it's a bit small in an adults hands, which can cause hand cramps if played for a long period of time, the stylus is located in the back of the machine, and isn't exactly the easiest thing to pull out if you need it right away, and the finish is very glossy, which means a lot of fingerprints. I'd say if you're a first time buyer for Nintendo's handheld devices, I would skip this device, and go straight for the 3DS XL. They've fixed/enhanced some of the features that should have been placed into the works for the 3DS, in the first place, the screens are 90% larger, the stylus is on the side of the device, making it easier to access right away, and the device itself is overall, larger and the corners are rounded which makes for easier game play to those with bigger hands. Overall, it's a great device and I would recommend it to anyone who's into handheld gaming systems.
I bought this DS for my 8 year old daughter for Christmas..She love it!She plays the games,musicand taking the pictures.
Works well.For me the pictures are not very clear for her are fine.The other way it is a good product ,I wish will be cheaper.Ewa
While it did not initially have a stellar lineup of games, nintendo is showing a lot of support coming in the next year. With games like Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, Luigi's Mansion, and Fire Emblem, Plus all of the titles they will show at E3, and the new generation of Poke'mon, It's a no brainer to go with this handheld system.
Upgraded from the DSlite and i have to say it's a pretty good upgrade. I really love that they added the joy stick. I don't really play 3D games since it hurts my eyes but you can turn the 3D feature off and play games normally so it isn't a problem at all. I think it's defiantly worth finding one at $150 and under. Good quality. No complaints. The only thing awkward about it is the placement of the stylus (it's next to the game cartage insert in the back).
The left third or so of the touch screen does not work correctly, and towards the upper left-hand corner it does not register at all. This problem was not affected by recalibrating it so apparently the screen is actually somewhat broken, which I had not been informed of before buying. The system works fine otherwise but considering the price tag, you might as well pay slightly more and get a new 3DS that works completely as it should.
