Rated 3 out of 10 by Jackx429 It works.
My mom bought this for me for my birthday and while greatful for the gift because this is indeed what I asked for, the device does NOT come as shown. Mine did not come with the top decal. The bottom was fine and clearly did come from the zelda limited edition 3ds, but the top was not. It is flat black and you CAN SEE WHERE THE DESIGN USED TO BE. I am overall just barely satisfied with it. It functions. the right button sticks, and the screen flies all the way back when the car hits a bump. I feel that if I were given the chance to return it for a 100% refund and get one with all the decals and the buttons in good shape I would do it in a heartbeat.
Rated 9 out of 10 by Katyaris Great condition, came as pictured!
I love my beautiful, Zelda-themed 3DS! There are a couple reviews saying that it does not come as pictured. I'm here to assure you that it does. Black with the pretty golden Zelda design/border on the top. Everything was nicely polished. There is a ding on the edge of the top screen, but that's to be expected for a used item and I can live with it. The system itself works great. Everything functions as expected. It came with the charger as well as a screen cloth, screen protector and earbuds. It does not come with an SD card, which some games require. (Just FYI). Overall I'm very happy with my purchase. :) <3 ZELDA!! <3
Rated 5 out of 10 by girlincape Not a Zelda 3DS
I decided to try my luck buying here, since the Zelda 3DS elsewhere like on ebay runs at least $175. I figured since the more recent reviews reported the device was a complete Zelda 3DS, I might get a deal, but I was wrong.
The top of the 3DS is metallic black, and does not include the Zelda 3DS designs. There is a gold slider from a Zelda 3DS but the gold is almost completely scratched off in the middle. The corners on the bottom half are pretty banged up, a lot of the color is missing.
So far the device at least seems to be functional, but not what I was hoping for.
Rated 7 out of 10 by Leyla Not as expected, but great customer service
I ordered this 3DS for myself, and as some people have said, I didn't exactly get what I expected/what was shown. It was indeed the Zelda 3DS (decal and all), but it was a bit damaged. The top right inside corner was poorly retouched with black paint, and the outside top left (as well as bottom right) were both kind of dinged up. I wasn't really happy with it, so I sent an email using the customer service information (you can find it on the website when you're looking at your order status I think...) explaining my situation, and asking for one in better condition/an exchange. I got a response within 24 hours and they also went ahead and processed an order for another 3DS in better condition. The email stated I would receive it in 3-5 business days. I received it in the estimated time, the only downfall was there was no tracking number or secondary email that was sent out for the replacement. Now I just need to bring the old 3DS to any Gamestop to return and/or ship it back with the return label. I rate the new one almost perfect condition with all the decal/markings (and very very minimal wear and tear) - 8-10, while I would rate the old one around a 4-5. I think for the price I got it at, I'm very satisfied. There was a hiccup, but the customer service was great and I got my new one within the next week :] If it wasn't for the hiccup, I probably would rate this a bit higher. But all in all, for the value, I think it's a great deal and I would buy again from the online store :D
Rated 5 out of 10 by Downwiththewebsite 3DS completely different from photo
I ordered the Zelda 3DS online (never used the website, love the store) and paid for overnight shipping. The 3DS is COMPLETELY different from the photo. It is refurbished, but the top is completely black with no decals while the bottom is a lighter black with the Zelda decals. Works fine, but very disappointing that it is not Zelda. If you are buying a refurb - BEWARE! You may not get what you ordered!
Rated 9 out of 10 by ExplodedX This 3DS is amazing!
I received my 3DS and it's exactly how it looks in the picture. The beautiful gold embellishment on the black 3DS makes me smile every time I pick it up. It only has a few scratches on the back, but other than that it's in great condition. Definitely a purchase I'm very happy I made

I got this item for my husband he's a big Zelda fan and he's wanting a 3DS I thought this was the perfect gift for him. When I received it, it's well taken care of , just a slight cosmic scratches... but hardly noticeable , it works in perfect condition... I would recommend this product.. I even want to get a refurbish 3DS XL and play games with him haha...

The system itself is great. The buttons are a little small for a teenager, but its to be expected. Be warned though, the picture for this black/gold is actually the limited edition zelda 3DS, the one you get has a solid black top and a gold lined bottem
