It basically comes down to what you want to use it for and your expectations. If you intend to surf alot of media/flash heavy sites (eg. gamespot, etc....), than this is not the device for you. Those types of sites will take forever to load and render. However, if you are like myself and want to check your email, the weather, ebay, google, wikipedia, news type sites, and other sites that have a mobile version, than the DS browser is very handy and very fast. I've never had any issues with logging into my online accounts or with submitting various forms. The convenience of being able to check my email from bed or out on the deck in the backyard is well worth the 40 bucks (cdn). I can basically turn the device on, connect, check my email, and turn it off before my PC is even booted.
I think the number of bad reviews are due to ignorance, don't let them scare you if you are thinking of taking a pass on this thing. Some reviewer on this site complained that he got the wrong version, not sure how that is nintendo's fault when it is cleary marked for the lite version.
Some complain that it doesn't support flash or other plugins, obvious limitations that are well known before the purchase, so why did they bother buying it?Read more ›
Bottom line, the only practical use for this is checking e-mail and perhaps a few blogs, and that's really all there is. The next DS should be a bit more powerful and hopefully that'll bring a truly great mobile net surfing experience to the masses. Wait till then.
