    The title of this topic made me lose 16 brain cells. Your treatment of the 3DS made me lose another 5.
    It's so dirty!

    He wants the views of people that have "had a go" at the system.

    That means if you have played the system before.

    Where did you get an English system anyway?

    I understand the title, doesn't mean it makes grammatical sense. Probably should have been something more like "3DS; views of people who have had a go".

    Pros: Almost everything, as for eye strain (I could take 8 hours of 3D just fine which is average time for gamers)

    Cons: Power button is in a very precarious place (at least it will show options to go to the home menu and shut down when it's pushed during gameplay instead of turning it off), you are prone to push it instead of start which you want to push. I had this happen twice.

    Losing the 3D effect is a common occurrence especially if playing the 3DS lying down both back and chest down and can be an annoyance at times.

    3D effect isn't as good in a well lit area, so turn off those lights

    Good to see you active again, Pong.
    I cleaned up the title to make it a little bit easier to understand.
    And you're a lucky guy to have already gotten hands-on experience with the 3DS.
