A real gamble pays off nicely. – Nintendo DS Lite Portable Entertainment Console - Black (Refurbished) Reviews

Pros:
The price on this is amazing, I saved a good AU$100. Console appears to work perfectly, not a single dead pixel, battery comes fully charged. This would make a perfect gift. I plan to buy more of these.
Cons:
There is only a few things that are a little sketchy about this console. The box is CLEARLY a fake, as is the contents. When you look at the DS itself, you can tell it's a fake. It feels a lot more plastic than the real console. The buttons are a little odd (though they work fine). The touchscreen is definitely a struggle at first, but I managed to 'wear it in' in PicToChat by just scribbling.
Other:
I never expected much from this purchase, because from what I read, apparently half of them come DOA and won't even turn on. I guess I got lucky. For the price, I took the gamble. If you can afford to take the risk, I definitely recommend you to, because it pays off if you get lucky :) An additional note for us Australian gamers, for this console you will need to purchase a USB charger for the DS because the power supply that comes with the DS doesn't work in our country.
Bottomline:
If you can afford to take the risk, do it! If you really cannot afford to lose the money if it arrives broken... DO NOT BUY! I'm just lucky.
