Mine works fine! – Nintendo DS Lite Portable Entertainment Console - Black (Refurbished) Reviews

posted by rubenmiddel on 02/24/2009 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
- It's cheap compared to the Netherlands
- I don't believe it's a third party motherboard
- genuine box (I guess)
- No dead pixels or other weird stuff
- High quality third party casing
- Works like it should work
Cons:
- Touch screen did not respond the first time I started my DS. This problem was fixed by removing the battery and putting it back in.
- Chinese battery. I think it's third party.
- Flat plug charger. I fixed it with 3529, but mostly use USB.
- Volume button blocks a little at full volume. No big problem if you're gentle and don't force it.
- Mine came with only 1 stylus instead of 2.
Other:
Except the touch screen problem on the beginning, I had no problems with this item at all! It's totally what I hoped for. There is a big risk if you know there's no guarantee and its refurbished, but it worked out very well!
For people that use round power plugs; sku 3529 fits fine! But for me USB (sku 4279) is even better.
Bottomline:
I know it was a big risk, but after knowing this, I think it is safe enough for other people to buy it.
If I had 4 hands, I'd buy another one.
