WARNING: Amazon's Price is TOO HIGH,
This review is from: Nintendo DSi XL - Metallic Rose (Video Game)
This is the second DSi XL for me. I replaced my old one today; I will not be allowing my 6 yr old granddaughter to play with the new one, as her mishandling is why I had to buy a new one. Up until she got her busy little paws on it, it worked GREAT, and I got many hours of enjoyment from it, so this is not some sort of recurring problem inherent to the unit. It was MY BAD for thinking she was old enough :-( Well, enough about that. Just wanted to be sure you understand that buying a replacement unit had nothing to do with how well-built it is or anything like that.
Mostly I wanted to post a review today to let you all know that Amazon's pricing is too high. I did a little online research and found that BEST BUY stores carry this unit (in both blue and pink) for $129.99 -- and if you are close to a Best Buy store, you won't have to 1) pay any S&H fees; or 2) wait for it to be shipped to you. Both pretty good reasons to skip Amazon's $145 price tag. Any day that I can buy something off-the-shelf locally for $15 LESS than mail order is a GOOD day.
Moral of the story: it pays to shop around.

Thanks for posting this review. I checked and you are totally right; as of today BB has a much better price than the third party sellers on Amazon. I think sometimes I get a little too accustomed to Amazon always having the lowest price and forget to check!
