Nintendo DS Lite Hand Held Gaming Console
The Nintendo DS is absolutely amazing for fun. It keeps my daughter and even my self thinking and playing adventurous well thought out games. However, the craftsmanship of the DS is rather chintzy. This is our 4th purchase in 4 years. We even bought a replacement case. The hinges are junk. They crack, get loose and then the DS breaks. They are not very resistant to accidental droppings and for a child's game console, you would think it could handle a 1 foot drop on carpet. You would also think the price could come down since new and improved consoles have surfaced. We purchased 2 new ones and 2 used ones. They all work the same and have the same lifespan. Just recently bought a new shell and screen to reassemble and try to save some money. Money saved, but what a pain to put it all back together! Not for the mechanically deficient. If you can't use a soldering iron, do not attempt. I give this an average to below average rating on durability, an excellent rating for fun, and a poor rating for your wallet.Read full review
Consider before buying
I orginally had a DS Lite before it got stolen. I brought a DSi to replace it. Normally when I do that I give the old system to my niece. Her birthday was coming up so I wanted to get her a DS lite so she can still play her Gameboy Advance games (you can not play them on the DSi). Anyway she was turning seven so she doesn't necessarily need a new system so I brought this one. It was cheaper than anyone that was sold in the stores. I didn't care that the touch screen was so scratched up and loose but she and I would live. After she had it for about two weeks and played it then the battery dies. So she tried to charge it. It wouldn't charge. I thought maybe the battery had died so I ordered a new battery for it. Worked fine. Try to charge it after the battery had ran down a little. Still nothing. Long story short I tried everything to make sure it was the gaming system itself and it was. So I would highly recommend considering what I said before buying it unless you know how to fix the charging issue, and scratched and loose touch screen.Read full review
Great product, exactly what I ordered.
This product was basically exactly what I ordered. A Nintendo DS Lite, works great, have had no problems with it. I got it for my girlfriend as a christmas present, and she has been using it a lot. The touchscreen works both by touching it and with the included stylus, which conveniently inserts into the device. I was thinking it might be nice if it attached to the ds somehow, but that would also make it less convenient to use, so they probably have the right idea the way it is.
Great design, can't go wrong!
The Nintendo DS Lite is fairly compact, can easily fit in an adult size pocket, yet it still packs a lot of gaming punch. The design is simple, yet stylish. These things are durable and made to last, that's one of the great things about Nintendo products. The built in rechargeable battery pack, and included charging cable, will ensure you will always have the power needed to run the DS without having to continuously buy new batteries. There is a HUGE library of games for the DS, so virtually every type of gamer will be satisfied with the selections. However, the only down side is the cost of the games adds up quickly! Newer or popular games range from $30 - $40, so get 10 of these and your paying an average of $350! But fortunately there are many games in the $10-$20 range, and many used games for sale in games stores or right here on ebay!Read full review
