EDIT: Bumping the rating to 5 stars. I still stand by the fact that these screens do not look as nice as the IPS displays - BUT they are brighter so for those of us that that are a little older, and now have to turn our phone screens etc up to full brightness to see them, you may be better off with the TN displays. I do have some SNES Virtual Console games downloaded that are very dim on the 3DS already so any brightness helps, and the screen looks fine as long as you are not comparing it to an IPS screen. Plus the hinges are much better than my current 3DS and I really do love the way it looks.
Anyways, the only minor problem I have with my 3DS XL is the weight. It's actually quite heavy to me. Maybe it's because I'm a petite girl, but when I'm laying down and playing holding the DS up, my arms get sore after a few minutes and my palms as well from supporting the weight. Maybe if I had a bigger hands it'd be more comfortable. But I don't really mind and I definitely love the big screen so bigger size is a good thing :)
So the lighting's a bit dull in my photos and the DS screen looks hazy due to my phone's camera. In person the screen is very crisp and clean :)
First off: the screen. Many of these reviewers had me seriously doubting my purchase after I started reading into the whole IPS vs TN screen. Upon receiving it, I have to say I don't know what all the fuss is about. Maybe it's because I'm coming from an original 3ds, but I'm really nothing but pleased with the picture quality. It looks like a significant improvement.
Secondly, this system is gorgeous. The pictures really don't do it justice. It's a LOT better looking in person, and the satin finish does not attract fingerprints as much. As an older gamer who loved the snes, I was torn between this system and the black one. As soon as I opened the box I immediately felt like I'd made the right choice.
As this is my first experience with the new 3ds xl, I have to compliment the build quality. It's hefty enough to feel substantial, but not overly heavy. The hinge feels solid and snaps into multiple positions with a satisfying click. The face-tracking and stable 3d feature is an incredible addition! The cartridge slot and stylus location on the bottom is a refreshing and much needed change.
So maybe I'm an old man. So maybe I don't care as much as I should about TN vs IPS mumbo-jumbo. All I know is I had an original 3ds for years, and this upgrade has left me tickled pink. I can't wait to throw my money into the eShop and go rummaging for old DS classics.
Now here are my thoughts on the good and the bad.
It is beautiful The colors are perfect and as any SNES fan from back in the early 90s on will drool at the look of this system! I did!
Nintendo has always amazed me, with the quality of their products! Whether this is your first 3DS or 10th, you will love this!
Included is a free download code for the SNES Mario Kart which is awesome.
Some people complain about the lack of a power plug, but you can get one here on Amazon for under $8. Buy the combo Amazon has.
