Possibly the best hand held console Review with images

AdvantagesSleek and stylish, vast amount of games, great fun to play, wi-fi enabled

DisadvantagesNot the best graphics and audio of the hand helds, still expensive

"==The Nintendo DS Lite== The Nintendo DS Lite (“NDSL”) was released in the UK in June 2006 as a replacement for the Nintendo DS (“NDS”). The NDSL is approximately 39% smaller and 21% lighter than its predecessor, however the signatory dual screen remains the same size, which is some feat. In order to put this reduction in to perspective I have included the dimensions and weight of the NDSL in a ‘technical specs’ section at the end of this review. In ..." Read review

NINTENDO DS LITE - PERFECT FOR ALL AGES Review with images

AdvantagesPerfect for all ages and very easy to use

DisadvantagesNone for me

"...after the introduction of the Nintendo DS Lite. My gadget mad younger sister purchased her console within days of its’ release and continually nagged me to buy one. I resisted for a considerable time as in my opinion, it would be another impulse purchase that would get pushed to the back of one of my drawers and eventually car booted! However, my opinion soon changed when she brought her console to my home and challenged me to play one of her games. ..." Read review

I Love it! Review with images

AdvantagesEasy to use, good range of games, sturdy

DisadvantagesCan be addictive

"I’ve had my Nintendo DS Lite for what seems like forever; but surely it can’t be that long ago that my husband so kindly bought it (along with Scrabble and Braintraining) so I could entertain myself whilst stuck in hospital pregnant with my second daughter. A few calculations later and I’ve worked out that I must have had this for 3 years at least. This surprises me because I’m sure he paid around the £100 mark; and to my horror they are still selling ..." Read review

Touch Me Review with images

AdvantagesLong battery life, great choice of games available, multiplayer capabilities are endless

DisadvantagesBig handed people might suffer from their hands cramping, Wi-Fi access can be tricky

"Seeing as both the Nintendo DS and the Sony PSP came out at roughly the same time, and therefore seen as rival next-gen handheld consoles, I thought it would be appropriate to tell a little story. I watched a live instalment of a regularly broadcasted show on Gamespot.com recently. Now although the whole thing is presented by a bunch of middle-aged nerds, the material is always focused on the latest up and coming stuff from the gaming industry. ..." Read review

Second times a charm nintendo! Review with images

Advantagesgreat new design

Disadvantagespossibly limited features?

"The Nintendo DS lite looks great plays better! the DS will be hitting UK streets on the 23rd of June in either black or white finish. When the original DS was launched people expected great things me being one of them I had worked pretty much all year for this thing but when I had it, I couldn’t help but thing there was something wrong with it. However a true blue Nintendo fan such as myself was still not put of, almost! Then it hit me this is not ..." Read review

A handheld console for everyone

AdvantagesGames for everyone, good battery life

DisadvantagesNone

"I have had my DS Lite for very nearly 2 years. My partner bought it for my birthday and I remember he paid around £100 for it. Since then, the DS has come on a long way and the Lite edition is no longer available (unless buying preowned), but the new version - the DSi is available from Amazon currently for £99.99. The games available work on both the DS Lite and the DSi. *What is the DS Lite?* The DS Lite is a small, hand held games console. ..." Read review

A much improved design on an already excellent console!

AdvantagesBetter design and finish than original DS, easy to set up and play, great battery life

DisadvantagesGets dirty quite quickly from fingerprints, top screen a bit flimsy when open

"In 2006 Nintendo released their ‘Nintendo DS Lite’- a slimmer, more lightweight version of the original DS with quite a few design changes. It was a very popular addition to the DS console family, but at the time my sister and I stuck with the original handheld console. However in 2009 the original’s touch screen was too messed up for us to give it back to Argos and neither was it under warranty, so my sister and I pooled our money together to upgrade ..."

Super Gameboy advanced!

Advantagesfront runner in handheld games market

Disadvantagesi haven't encountered any problems using the DS

"...peaked somewhat but it's the Nintendo DS that seems to still manage to come out on top. Nintendo has a long history of handheld games consoles and have captivated gamers since the original gameboy (we'll exclude the Virtua boy though!) So now i'll be taking a look at the Nintendo DS. The design of the console itself isn't stunningly beautiful per say, it's got a nice gloss polish finish and a rectangle clam shell design, and it's simplicity in ..." Read review

I HAVE A PINK ONE!

Advantagesfun to play with, lots of games to play

Disadvantageshard to find...sold out everywhere

"...love Mario so really the Nintendo DS is a great console for me. The console also has the ability to link wirelessly to other DS users which is great for anyone wanting to play against another DS user. I grew up with a Gameboy and absolutely loved it. I was never into Playstation at all and found the D-Pad and buttons very easy to get used to, however even beginners will find it easy. SETUP ---------- The setup was very easy and unlike my ..."

DS Delight

Advantagestoo many to list

Disadvantagesnone that ive seen so far

"== How I Discovered It == I knew about the DS like most other people, through word of mouth. I never had the desire to buy one until the beginning of 2008 when for some strange reason I set my heart on getting one. I think it was because I had seen the adverts for brain training on the tv a lot at this point, they were on almost every day. Then I played on my friends step-mums DS and that was it, my mind was made up, I had to have a DS, all ..." Read review

Nintendo DS Lite Review

AdvantagesBrighter screen, smaller, lighter in weight, clearer colours, bigger stylus

DisadvantagesGBA Cartridges sticks out slightly when inserted.

"Okay, so the Nintendo DS lite is an updated remake of the Nintendo DS; it definatly boosted up the popularity of this handheld console. Nintendo totally re-done the design, for the best! Instead of the bulky, heavy look the original DS had, they made the DS lite smaller and much more easier to hold. And what's more! They come in many other colours other than white such as Pink (Which I have), Black, Navy blue and some other colours. ... But that ..." Read review

A Console You Can Fit In Your Handbag Review with images

AdvantagesPortable, massive range of games, durable.

DisadvantagesPlaying can be addictive!

"...Official headphones are sold by Nintendo but I have also used the headphones from my I-pod. The built in microphone is used in some games. Some titles such as Brain Training rely on speech recognition but I've found they don't recognise my Scottish accent. Other games will ask you to blow into the microphone and some like Carnival Games merely ask you to shout as loud as you can to register your volume. The console is available in a range of ..."

Pocket Rocket We Have Lift Off !!!!!!!!

AdvantagesWireless, Big improvement on First DS

DisadvantagesBattery Life Kinda Poor

"I bought my son the Nintendo DS Lite last week and what a buy it was looking on the FridayAd website I found one for sale locally for only £90 including 2 games one of which was Animal Crossing. It was brand new and had everything with it as you get when you buy from the shops so saving about £50 I was a very happy dad. The console itself in most retailers is £99 and thats without any games or a case to keep it in. The console was bought to replace ..." Read review
