Product Description

Nintendo DS Lite, Polar White
Lighter! Brighter! Let the cool look of the Polar White DS Lite brighten your day! This Lite is heavy on features.
Available in the Polar White color, Nintendo DS Lite sports two brighter screens with four brightness settings. The powerful backlight brings your DSgames to life like never before.
In addition to the brighter screens, Nintendo DS Lite is two-thirds the size of the original Nintendo DS and more than 20 percent lighter. It's sleek and powerful. Although the DS has undergone some major changes with the Nintendo DS Lite, you'll appreciate the minor changes as well. The built-in microphone resides in the middle of DS Lite and not at the bottom. We've moved the Power button away from the Control Pad and placed it on the side of the machine. Also, we've added a larger stylus to give you a better grip on gameplay.
If that isn't enough, Nintendo DS Lite sports a longer battery life, up to 19 hours depending on the brightness settingyou choose. Of course, the new handheld still plays all the Game Boy Advance titles available in addition to games made specifically for Nintendo DS.And the built-in Wi-Fi lets you play wirelessly against nearby friends, or you can play online against gamers from around the world with Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection.
Awesome games, great enhancements and an incredible price makes Nintendo DS Lite will be your best acquisition of the year.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lighter is Better August 31, 2006
Color Name:Coral Pink
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
People will no doubt find the Nintendo DS Lite to be a way for Nintendo to sucker people out of their money. It can be that way, if you think of yourself as a sucker, but for me the DS lite is a little better. Simply put, if you're content with your original DS, then don't even waste time to buy this one. If you don't have a DS period, the DS Lite is a much better investment than the original bulky one.

With the DS Lite, gameplay is made a little simplar. The button placement and brighter screen make the gameplay a little better. For one, the start and select buttons have been moved to resemble where they were on the original Gameboy Advance. This makes handling some of the functions (especially for GBA games) a lot easier. The buttons, sadly, are a still a little small for guys with big hands like myself.

The DS Lite also comes with a phony GBA cartridge (called a "cap"). If you don't have a GBA game plugged into the system, you can put in the phony cartridge to keep it from collecting dust in there. However, when you do stick in a GBA game, it sticks out by about a centimeter. It just looks weird. The cap does, at least, keep the system looking good.

Perhaps the most welcome change to the DS Lite is the screen. The original DS screen was not exactly bright. In fact, it was, in comparison the DS Lite, rather dark. Games like Metroid Prime Hunters were darker than they had to be. On this new screen, the difference in how bright the games appear really shows. Not only that but, you can adjust the brightness if need be. It doesn't really affect the battery life, either. You can play the DS Lite for as long as you played the original. And also like the original, it charges while you play.

Another welcome difference is the touch screen itself.

5.0 out of 5 stars very fun November 23, 2006
Color Name:Polar White
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I have owned the first DS since the day it came out. I bought the DS Lite about a week after it came out and I was amazed of the changes. It is so much lighter and is just a lot better to have than the original. The screen emits about as much light as the sun. It is like DLP technology compared to a regular TV. Plus, most of the games look loads better. Sme people say there is a stress crack, but I have had mine since June and it is still in very good condition. My advice is to you to buy this DS Lite and you will have made a good choice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pretty in Pink and with improvements! DS vs. DS Lite October 16, 2006
A Kid's Review
Color Name:Coral Pink
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
My brother and sister got the teal and pink Nintendogs bundles last year with the regular DS in them so I've had a chance to try them out. I wasn't sure whether I wanted the Nintendo DS, PSP, or anything like this at all. However, I decided to go with the DS now after playing around with theirs.

Playing video games on the DS in a whole new experience. There are lots of games to play for all ages. The microphone and touch screen get you involved and interacting with the game in a way a joystick or game pad alone just can't do. The wireless feature can't be overlooked either. Locally, we can play against each other including our friends even in different rooms. You can also pictochat (a picture and text chat program that comes pre-installed on the DS). You can also play against others worldwide too! All you need is a compatible router or a Nintendo Wi-FI USB connector for that which was set up by my parents. Playing against others makes it exciting, and a chance to tryout our skills against others. My parents try them out first for "our safety". I think they like to play them too :-). My favorites so far are like Mario Kart which only gives out your user name (we use nicknames instead of real names) and Clubhouse Games which displays your user name as well as select from a list of already made text messages--as far as I know you can't add your own text when online for this games. Other games may be different so it's a good idea the parents do check. So far I haven't come across any usernames that should be bleeped either so everyone seems to being playing nice or Nintendo has a way of screening them out. My parents still took the time to make sure my younger sister and brother knew why they shouldn't give out personal information even when playing locally.
