Nintendo DS Lite - (GameStop Refurbished)
A good buy,but has its flaws
Okay,so we all know the DS Lite isn't perfect,but it's not all bad either.It has the GBA slot,not like the DSi,DSi XL,or the new 3D DS.I had my DS for maybe a good 2 years,but then I dropped it in water,kinda my fault,and sadly it never worked after that.But other than that I'd say it's a pretty good handheld,but thing I hated was that if I played it only for a range of 10-20 minutes my hand would cramp and start hurting,so I would have to stop playing,and that it was really easy to drop and break.So get this handheld if you want,but it may or may not last very long
"I never leave home without it!"
My Nintendo DS was given to me as a Christmas gift last year. I LOVE IT! First, it is very light weight and the picture is amazingly clear. My eyesight is not 20/20 so I was afraid that the screen would be to small to read. NOPE, IT'S THE PERFECT SIZE! There are so many games that the Nintendo DS has to choose from, you will never get bored. I have a few younger cousins from ages 5 to 13 that all have one. And as long as we are within about 50 feet of one another, we can download our games and play against each other. IT IS SO COOL! I like the Ds better than the other gaming systems because it offers educational games also. They have games that teach you to speak foreign languages and how to cook. Not to mention the cute colors they come in. If you are trying to decide which system to purchase, GET A NINTENDO DS! I am 24 years old and I love mine. The crossword puzzles, Brain Age, and Super Mario Brothers are my favorite. You will not regret purchasing this system!
dosent matter if it is new or used
I was very impressed on how the ds lite performance was. A nice sleek design, brighter screen, wider screen are just some of the many features on the ds lite. I thought gameplay was more easy because the screen could be brightened. Any nintendogs play great on this system and nintendogs has great graphics. Another thing i noticed about the ds lite is that the gba slot was not sticking out, so it is not hard to carry. I would recommend getting the refurbished version because when i got my refurbished ds lite it was spotless! It is a few dollars under the brand new one but you need to save every penny eh? I recommend this product to any new gamers. It has many easy to use buttons. The slider may be hard to find sometimes but at least it will stay in place.
The actual system is great, I'm going to get another, but Gamestop refurbished is not the way I would recommend. The hinges were loose, the screen was marked up, and so was the outside. I used it for a while and then the hinge got so loose that it broke a connection. All I'm saying is it's a great system, but you'd better open the box and check it out closely or it may be in bad condition.
I have had my DS for 1 year and I never got bored of it. I'm a big Nintendo fan, and the DS was an amazing product! The games don't have the best graphics (some of the games do) but the games are very entertaining, and long. The picto chat isn't very good since you can only chat from 30 feet away, but whatever! It's also sooooo much better then the original DS, it has four different lite views, much smaller and thin, kinda like the apple disine. It has tons of games you can choose from, I usually have a hard time choosing what to buy haha. There are games such as Mario kart, Super Mario bros, metroid prime hunter and much much more, games such as Mario Kart have some pretty good interface, and can go up to 6 players. Some games can also teach you things such as cooking, math, and language etc. if your not a hardcore gamer. well have a good time and listen to a lot of owl city! haha cya
Down with PsP up with Ds lite
Whats up fellow gamers its me fighterZ and im hear to say that the Ds lite rocks!!! Its graphics need work but overall its awesome. O.k. if ur wondering why the crap i wrote Down with PsP up with Ds lite is because dont get me wrong the PsP is pretty cool but im sick and tired of people like qqman22 and kitkatballer dissing the nintendo games. O.k. so if u want violence good graphics and people heads being cut off go to PsP but if u want to have actual fun go to Ds lite. And another thing qqman22 how dare u give the Ds lite a 5.0 i mean come on Ds lite may have crappy graphics but its definetly better than the PsP. Oh and one last thing before i sign off i have had my ds lite for two years and it has never broken so all those roomers saying the ds breaks easily dont listen to them and to end my disscussion i guarntee that the new Dsi is going to be 50 times better than the new PsP go. Well peace out fellow gamers.
Great system! :D
I got my ds lite about 4 or 3 years ago and it still gets me entertained. Here are my listed facts of why the dslite rules!
1. I think I dropped it about 1,000 times or so and it never broke or anything, so the durability is very high.
2. Its very portable and easy to take around with.
It has touch screen! ( I love touch screen!)
3. It has different light modes so that you can play in sunlight or at night.
4. It carries Game boy games!
5. This system has great VOLUME. Especially with ear phones.
6. this game system is good over all with its screen and the good games it features!
One bad thing about getting a WHITE DS LITE is in the corners it gets filled with crud and dirt.. yuck! but yeah it still rocks! I'm planing to get a DSI too :D
Only ONE gripe but a great buy
I bought two DS's, and I still have them both. Originally when the DS lite was released they had a minor design flaw, which has long since been fixed by the company free. That was my white one. As soon as the Black one came out, I kept waiting for my white one to break so I could justify buying the black one. Well that 'breaking thing' just ain't happening! These are well made, don't have to pamper it while handling, as I must with my PSP. So I eventually just bought a black one refurbished [as a back-up or for company ya' know lol]. It is a great buy [refurbished] buy you should ask your retailer to TRY the actual system you'll be buying, as mine [black one/refurbished] has some missing motion in the Dpad, which most people wouldn't notice unless you are trying to run in a direction [in game of course] that's NOT straight up down, left or right, in other words, angular running, it wants to go down, THEN left/right or what ever direction. It's probably just dirt under the protectors of the D pad [from before purchase], but I keep mine immaculately clean. In other words, it should have eight directions, mine only has four. I DID buy the warrantee and could return/exchange it, but most units you could get aren't going to be that way and it's just not a big enough issue for me just yet, especially since I just got it a few months ago. FURTHERMORE REASON for not returning it yet; the warrantee, which IS worth the price, is for a swapping of units when yours malfunctions due to manufacturers defects, which will almost never happen with these DS lites. The warrantee is worth the small fee, just be forewarned that you can only do that warantee exchange ONCE and ONCE only before the warrantee is considered null and void. BOTTOM LINE, the Refurbished Units of the DSLite are well worth the cost and a great buy savings. Just think of it this way, for LESS THAN the price of a NEW ONE, you can get a pre-owned one with warrantee and still have money in your pocket less than the cost of a new one.
In two ways better than the DSi!
For starters the DS lite is a great system and in two ways better than the DSi, the first thing is that it can play gameboy games too and the DSi can't and the second reason is that it's not as fragile. I had my DS lite for at least four years and I dropped it like a billion times and it never broke so it's very hard to get rid of if your wanting to buy something to replace it. The DS lite is pretty much the same thing as the DS just smaller and has brighter screens. If you think that this isn't right for you then just go for something else or get the DSi like I did. To wrap this up I'd like to say that the DS lite is one of the best DS systems ever made.
The Nintendo DS Lite is a great product. This system is great! You will not get bored with this. I'm not even joking! It has a lot of great titles like New Super Mario Bros. Which is a game I couldn't stop playing. A unique thing about the DS is the touch screen. Which gives you a whole different experience with gaming. This system is worth buying. It is very easy to use too. It is very cheap and has great games. It comes in great colors. And one thing i like about the DS is you can also play gameboy advance games on it too which is great. So it is basically a GBA too. The has some other cool features too. But you have to buy it to find out what else this system can do. I hope this review helped about what to expect with the Nintendo DS Lite. So what are you waiting for?
