Rated 8 out of 10 by Th3ta01d Situation Specific
This system is a great deal for specific situations. While it does not come with a memory card, it does come with screen protectors and the headphones, which work if you don't have anything else. The main thing I would say is if you happen to have SD cards laying around, (because let's be honest, there are a lot of devices that use them), then this system works for you. The system I received had only a slight blemish, and works perfectly, Battery life is around 4 to 5 hours, give or take how much you use the system. Overall, if you already have SD cards on hand, and your looking to upgrade from an older DS model, such as a DS or DS lite, then I'd recommend this to you. The system, though large, doesn't feel awkward in your hands and the big screens make games like Mario Kart 7 look beautiful. In conclusion, I'd recommend this over the newer system to most anyone who's looking to upgrade, doesn't mind buying refurbished, and has an existing collection of DS or 3DS games.
Rated 10 out of 10 by IsaacTheAwesome I just got this for the menu music
I have always loved the soothing mellow tones of all Nintendo's gaming system's menu music. Just puts me to sleep. totally worth the $200.
Rated 4 out of 10 by Wizzrobe A bad deal on a great system. NO SD Card Incld.
For a $10 price difference from a New 3DS XL (5% cheaper) you will get a Cleaned Up but Used and Refurbished system. The system will mostly be in great shape save for some mild cosmetic damage. (mine had scratches on the top lid) You will get as a "bonus", which is some cheap ear buds, a cleaning cloth and screen protectors. While you do get the AC Charger you do NOT get a SD Card. This omission along with the highly likely cosmetic damage is simply not worth the small $10 difference offered here. I did the testing for you, so dont buy this @ $190. If ever offered for like $170 (%15 difference ) then its a more reasonable offer. (Also you can NOT do a system transfer without a SD card in each 3DS so you will most likely NEED that SD card)
Rated 4 out of 10 by Tswiggles Look Elsewhere
I love gamestop for the most part... But systems and such are always over priced here. Nintendo sells the exact same product refurbished for $135 with 4gb SD card and a year warranty... You may be able to find it cheaper elsewhere. Look around before you buy.
Rated 9 out of 10 by ClayfromStatefarm Great System for a GREAT Price
The refurbished system is a great deal if you don't mind not having all of the packaging and papers that comes with a new 3DS. The system works great and the longer battery life is killer. Love this system
