Pros well, as im sure you know, it has an internet browse (probably the best feature) and an MP3 player, a camera, voice recorder and an online shop. its not too badly priced...where i live if you turn in your ds lite, they give you 70 dollas off...
Cons well obviously the most noticed is the fact that there is no GBA slot...no more guitar hero sadly...also it has 1-5 hours less battery time.. i was hoping for more battery time :[
Summary the thing is...the pros outweigh the cons for people like me...i like some privacy and i like talking on the computer to friends and watching youtube vids without someone standing behind me at the computer desk...so with the internet browser (which is very fast) i can just go lay down on my bed, relax, talk watch vids surf the web...no intrueders...also my computer is getting to be rather old so its like buying a new computer...there is also internal and external storage for music, pictures, games, sound recordings, ect. plus as we all notice...the cameras!!! the best part...finally a competitor to the iphone and ipod touch...i always wanted a touch but not anymore, ive always wanted a psp too but now that the DSi is out...there is no competition...i say DSi is the winner hands down!....its cheaper....does all the same stuff...the only bad part is less storage than an ipod touch :[ but can also do more on the internet and is faster :]...if your a DS person i say in with the new and out with the old...upgrade....trade in you old DS lite or regular DS..heck where i live they even give u a discount to trade in your GBA SP...SWEETTT...so im getting mine April 5th for the low price of $70!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! im trading in my DS lite and my GBA SP lite and now thats all i have to pay!!!!!!thats the price of a GBA SP!!! whoa!!! i think the DSi is a great product with so much to do...u can actually play a wider veriety of GBA games because you can also buy older GBA color games along with Advance....(gotta buy then :[ sad...) its not too bad if u dont already have the games then they are worth buying online on the DS....if u want a DS go for the DSi...if u have a DS....UPGRADE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.....totally worth it....im going to get mine reserved tomorrow and i dont think i can sleep :]]]] cant wait.....BUY THE DSi !!!!!!!! NOW!!!!!!......
BTW: Thnx for reading my take on the DSi compared to the DS lite...which i was a proud owner of...but since the DSi....the DS looks like a childs toy....thnx for reading :]
Pros Camera, music storage, picture quality
Cons Price, weak touch screen, games too expensive
Summary Well I can't really say much but to be honest, I am not a fan of the DSi. I can't see the point in all the hype about it, with people saying ' The best handheld ever', but when it came out, it was worse than egg flavoured ice cream. It was terrible. For starters, it was way too pricey. In the UK, it would set you back at least £160, which with that, you get no games, no starter pack, no awesome case, no bonus pens. You just get the console, and over in the UK, you don't get the memory stick with it. You have to buy them in camera shops, and they overcharge you, big time. Also, the DSi's touch screen, it's just too weak. I tapped it medium strength because the game said, ' Tap hard here', so I did, and what happens? The screen breaks, and then you have to send it to Nintendo, which is all the way in Japan, and then they mend the screen for you, and charge you at least £95 for it. Typical. However, the stupid piece of Japanese malfunction has two good things. The first is the intergrated cameras. Now these are quite cool, as you can enhance the pictures to either make you laugh, or make you smile. The last thing is the voice recording system. You can make your voice sound anyway you want. It can sound like you're in a tunnel, or it can sound like you're speaking through a trumpet. But all in all, probably one of the worst handheld consoles I have ever had a go on. I would totally recommend the DS Lite because it's cheap and they are good all-rounders. That is all.
Pros 0.3 mp camera, dsi sound, dsi shop
Cons no gba slot, no new breakthrough type features that the ds had
Summary the dsi is a nice upgrade to the ds, but ds owners shouldn't pay 170 bucks for that slim of an upgrade. overall a great product, i have found the dsi sound, camera and shop all useful tools. as i said, there is no reason to upgrade because there is nothing breakthrough in the system like the ds breakthrough.
Pros Camera (Pretty good quality), nice music player, game downloads, sexy, thin, durable, great screens, SD slot, great battery life, great speakers, user-friendly, amazing game player, good size, great game library, touchscreen, charges quickly, price
Cons Buttons can get stuck, no GBA slot, crappy web browser (no flash, really slow), music player can't run in the background, no video capability it just plays the audio from videos you try to sync to it, no video capture, no app store
Summary Overall, this is a great gaming device. It is a great value. I would definitely upgrade even if you already have a DS or DS lite because there are lots of fun, cool, and useful add-ons. There are a few quirks, but you get over them once you start using the DSi in your everyday life.
Pros This device is slim high-tec, goes on the internet, has a special shop where you can buy new games. The two cameras have lots of different features. The DSi doesnt get fingerprinted like the DS Light.
Cons You cannot download adobe flashplayer for the internet so you cannot watch movies or listen to songs. The internet also holds so much data and some websites do not load correctly.
Summary Overall I love this thing I would 100% recomend this to a friend.
