    my nds got stolen along with my r4 and g6.
    so since my girlfriend has a white ds, i decided to go with the black.
    i've never handled a black ds before.
    i was rather disappointed to see that it was just black plastic, without the clear plastic coding like the white.
    it also feels that the directional pad is of less quality, i'm sure that's just in my mind though. i can't see why the button build quality would be different.

    brien i would return you new black DSL if what you post is true. my black and white DSL are both identical. both use the same 'doubleshot' plastic casing with the clear layer ontop, and both DSL, in fact ALL current nintendo consoles (DSL, wiimore, GBAmicro) use the exact same dpad form the same mould.

    someone my brother knew broke into our house when we weren't home and he ran into my room and took it.
    my brother came home when he was in the house and he pulled a knife on my bro.
    he got arrested and they are pressing armed burglary and petty theft.

    i knew it got finger prints.. i decided just not to care since i wanted to distinguish mine from my girlfriends... but i'm very interested, if other people's are indeed double shot, i feel ripped off.

    i just talked to a friend and his black is just solid black plastic, not doubleshot.
    i'm really curious about this now.

    I had a white one to. But I sold it. Because of a small scratch. But the white one became yellow at some points. I have a black one looks for my taste better. Only problem are the fingerprints. What would you people recommend that i sould buy to protect my baby. But it has to be invisible as possible. I had a protection for the touch screen that was very ugly. Never used it.

    My two friends have a couple Black DS its just all black plastic, no clear plastic coating, after longing to have black, I felt sticking with my white was way better for me.
