For many that bought White DS Lites on launch, I urge you to check your White Lite for the dreaded crack. Oh, how I laughed at somebody whose DS developed a crack within 2 weeks of him having it. I thought it was someway down to the way he handled it, as it literally looked a year old in the 2 weeks he had owned it. Well, It now seems that he got off lucky. He replaced his white ds for a black one, which is still going strong 7 months later. The build quality is much better than my white ds, the volume control is more firm and less prone to rattling, the screen hinges open and close smoothly, without having to "click" into place... Anyway, I need to get it replaced fast, as the warranty period is nearly up. For those of you that haven't got the crack, a warning symptom is if the top screen starts getting slightly loose. I noticed this about a month ago, and thought little of it. The left hand side of the screen could literally be lifted up and down a few degrees, whilst the right hand hinge still felt solid. I think the reason it took so long to develop the crack, was because I take really good care of it. Now that's not to say you should try to not take care of it, but simulating a little wear or tear on your unit before the warranty period is advised by me, for the reasons I created this post. Yah, not particularly fun or engaging, yet let this just be a reminder. CHECK YOUR DS FOR FAULTS BEFORE THE WARRANTY PERIOD PASSSES.
