This is a high quality DS as other buyers have said. It is my daughters 3 rd DS over the years and every time they have improved considerably. The XL screen is a good size and the 3D feature is impressive and can easily be flicked off mid game if desired. Buyers should note that there is no adaptor included which is slightly annoying, but as we have other DS 's in the house it wasn't a problem. If this is your first DS though it is annoying to have to then go and pay more for the charger. They aren't expensive but even so, when you pay a lot for the console a charger would be nice. However, this aside, it's a great quality product and my daughter loves it.
