    I went from a DS Lite to a DSi Xl and I LOVE it..I kept my DS Lite as well since it was not worth trading it in..I LOVE my DSi XL, its a great system..now if your going from a dsi to a dsi xl then it might not be worth it, but if your going from a ds lite to xl then its worth it..and I have an acekard and it works GREAT

    DSi as DSi XL is too big. Also keep away from R4i. iEDGE, EZ Flash Vi, M3i Zero, Acekard 2i or Supercard DSONEi is what you want.

    I prefer DSi because of the colours, and its smaller and more compact

    I would go with the DSi, the XL is 50% heavier which is the only bad thing for me.

    I'd recommend DSi and wait until the Supercard DSTWO comes out.Which will be soon..

    I'd say go for an XL. It only weighs slightly more than a PSP 1000, it has nice screens, and it has a longer battery life.

    And Acekard 2i is your best option.

    Seriously, anyone who says the DSi XL is "too big" or "heavy" is kinda just kidding themselves. It is bigger/heavier no doubt but we are talking about inches and ounces here. Not feet and pounds.

    I've got a DS lite and an XL.
    And all i can say is you won't think twice once you buy the XL. Bigger screens, better speakers, better viewing angles, longer battery for $20 more dollars? I'll take it.

    IF ANYTHING, you will come to say that the DSi and Lite are TOO SMALL.

    I say go for the XL if you don't already have a regular DSI. If you do, then its not worth it.

    DSiXL too heavy ?
    What do you mean ? What do I pay my membership to the gym for ?
    Unless you are a girlish girl, or an old grandma , I don't see how can you complain for a few extra OUNCES......
    No pain , no gain [​IMG]

    When I play Brain Age on the XL ( which is included by the way ) I feel I train twice as good as on the Lite.....Train your Brain and your hand grip, so next time you squeeze your your friends hand you'll torture them ..........lol

    Go for the XL I made a mistake of getting the normal DSi and I feel stupid, I tried out the Xl and it totally changes the experience of gameplay with the large screens, I may get one next month if I save up enough [​IMG]

    your moms jeans pocket
    the two are systems are basically the same
    its just i would prefer the dsi over the XL cause the XL is a little big and bulky and lass portable than the dsi
    and for a flash card i would recommend ak2i hands down

    I had got the DSI about two months ago and still had the receipt and box. So I just brought it back paid $20 more and got the DSI XL! I love it. Having the bigger screens is great. Only thing is my EZFVi didn't have a good connection in the slot, so I had to put a piece of paper to make it fit right. It’s odd because it didn’t have a problem with the DSI. FYI if you get Nintendo’s accessories kit the zip up case barely fits over the thing. It’s odd. But it’s worth the money for the car charger extra styles and screen protectors.
