Well it's time to replace my old black DS Lite. It's been quite a run...not really. I hated my old Lite. The diagonals were so horrible and they were almost nonexistant. The L and R button are rather not stiff, but so loose that I don't know if I actually pressed the trigger all the way down. Not to mention my touch screen shifted a little bit. To top onto that, my volume and power slider became really, really loose. And to those of you that doubts me, I take EXTRA good care of my electronic hardwares, first couple things I bought right after purchasing my DS was not one, but 2 cases and 2 sets of screen protectors as well.

Anyways, onto present things: I'm about to purchase a new DS Lite and I was wondering what other problems I should look out for. I've heard of broken hinges, yellow L/R buttons on Polar White DS, the problems I've experienced above, yellow screens, and shifting D-Pad. Another thing that I've read is that the Polar White DS's are built better than the Black Onyx in the case of buttons. Is that true? Anyways, thanks for your time and let's hope I'm going to get a good unit before that DSi ships in later this year.

P.S. Yes I'm going to buy a DSi too, but I need something to operate my slot-2 flashcarts and expansion packs.

EDIT: Is the Metallic Silver DS Lite problem-free and/or fingerprint-free as well?

Buy the crimson/onyx (red/black) which is my avatar. I've had it for a good 2 years and it holds up very nicely, and I have had no problems.

    @Xpk24, Sure thing.

    But this is the general chit chat. Nobody responds to questions.

    esta bien pero tu lo vas hacer porfa
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    Saying it like that sounds like you want others to do it than doing the research yourself.
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    I've already posted a link to the Nintendo DS section so that you can post something regarding your DS flashcart. Just make sure all of your posts are in English as this is against the rules.
  • Xpk24 @ Xpk24:

  • Xpk24 @ Xpk24:
    no se no donde sea si pero aca en venezuela las consolas de ds esta descontinuadas y la poca información que consigo en internet no es la que nesecito
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    You know, finding information about DS flashcarts isn't that hard. They can be found pretty much everywhere and a lot of them can be still bought, however, these are clones from previous generations.
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    My apologies if I'm boring you. But if you'd like help with your DS flashcart, then I highly suggest making a thread to get a quick reply. Nobody is going to help in the chat section.
