Handheld systems are great, the Nintendo DS plays two different types
The product performs excellently, it was well worth the purchase and the wait. It can run both Gameboy games as well as Nintendo Ds games. It is a nice product to have for long road trips or entertainment for kids during long errand days or general waiting time away from home. Games for the handheld system are in general affordable and good quality, and most retailers still hold the games for the Nintendo DS. The games are also available to be shipped from online shopping sites such as Ebay, or from older video game stores.

Amazing system -- nice features/graphics -- endless game library: Buy it!!
The Nintendo DS system is one of the best handheld systems that there is -- period. When I received it for Christmas in '07 I was ecstatic! The game library is excellent and varied and the system is just as impressive. I have a 3DS too which I treasure also but if I had to pick my all-time favorite handheld it would probably be the original DS since it started all the dual screen madness. Plus Pictochat was very clever and addicting! Sending messages and pictures to nearby friends and family was a treat! One of my favorite aspects of the system is how durable it is!! The one I originally got for Christmas was electric blue and somewhat recently died on me because I let my mom clean it with a alcohol pad while it was still on!! Whoops! I really wasn't thinking. :/
I ended up buying another one here which was in pretty nice condition but unfortunately one of the kids that comes here dropped it and the hinge broke. :/ :/ I have NEVER broken a DS in my life. They are insanely durable. This kid must have dropped it pretty hard.
Sorry for going on a tangent!! Anyway, great system -- nice graphics for its time -- easy to learn and control -- large library of games. Love it! The only real complaint I have about this system is that I don't think the max volume is as loud as you want to be. But that problem is across many handlhelds for some reason.
Rating: 5/5 (or a 10/10)Read full review

The Original is still the best
I was given one of these in 2004 for christmas when it had just came out. It was the coolest new handheld at the time. Now that it is 10 years old, I purchased a new one to replace my original one. I have to say that it has aged well. I like the fact that this version of the DS is able to be dropped without breaking, (although the hinges are fragile, so be careful there). I bought a new one of these just so I could play my GBA games again. The backlight is not adjustable, just on or off, and the system itself is not as comfortable as my 3DS XL to hold, but it is a nice system, especially for the cost. They still make DS games, so it is not outdated except that there have been a few newer DS consoles over the years. Because this has the GBA slot, I personally like it better than the dsi. The DS lite would be the comparable console, and I like this better because it held up over time much better than the ds lite my brother had.Read full review

Although clunkier than the units to follow, I find it easier to repair.
First in the DS linage. Feeling clunkier then the rest but still gets the job done. (Playing both GBA & DS games)
While it is bigger and a bit harder to hold over larger periods of time (Definitly will not fit into your pocket without a stretch), it is designed so that the GBA games fit plush inside the unit (Unlike the DS lite). The button layout is not as nice as the Lite but it still fine.
The Stylist is not as good as DS Lite and is not as nice to hold, a little too small.
The screen is dimmer than the DS light but still is not bad and works perfectly fine, still palyable in the dark.
Battery life is about the same as the light, charger is the same as the GBA SP. Which at the time of introduction was great because it was backward compatable to the last hand held.
Design feature of the shell make the hinge a weak point and is prone to break. Although as a plus both the top and bottom screen are the same making it a bit easier to repair. There is a link cable connecting the upper and lower screens so if you snap the unit in half you are only out the link cable and not an upper screen like the DSL. I find the original DS easier to repair then the DSL.Read full review
