I'm thinking of getting one of these sometime off eBay but I've got a question before I do. Are the colors on all the shells painted on (I know that silver and black is for sure)? I'm thinking of getting a red one and I have no idea if it is a solid red or some shiny glittery red paint or something similar.

they seem to be just like the nintendo shells... a base plastic that is a solid color with a coat of the glossyish paint material over...

the #1 difference is the plastic is a bit 'softer' than real ds shells

Hm, well most DS' are like that it seems. I heard the red one may be the actual color of the plastic, which I'm hoping it is. I just wanna get a new shell where the plastic is not painted and one that isn't white. I saw some images of the red one and it doesn't look like paint either, though I could be wrong. I'm not even sure how different the red is on the Japanese Jump Superstars or US MKDS edition DS'.

Not yet. But the DS Lite is extremely scratch-prone, and no doubt replacement shells will become available soon.

    the only good thing about soundbars is that they fit neatly under your TV but if you have the option to use standalone speakers, you ALWAYS get more for your money

    that's why all soundbars are crap

    because it's a waste of money

    you could've gotten cheaper separate speakers and they also take up less space

    i always do hours of research before i buy anything because half the crap you see gets bad reviews especially when it's on sale, stuff is usually on sale because it was a bad deal at full price and nobody was buying it

    No comment on whatever particular unit Kennie bought, don't really care

    Just, in general, sound bars are a scam.

  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    An actual decent to good sound bar is going to be as expensive as a lower end home theater in a box system with less functionality and a poorer sound stage

  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    Which is to say you're spending so much money to still have 100% of the sound come from the bottom of the TV.

    As long as it sounds good that's all I give a fuck about lol

  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    aye long as you're happy with your purchase that's the important part

  • KennieDaMeanie @ KennieDaMeanie:
    You really can't judge based on video reviews as it's not the pure sound coming from it
    Gift
  • KennieDaMeanie @ KennieDaMeanie:
    So any product reviewer can just say spend $200 more on this cause it sounds better be your own judge

  • KennieDaMeanie @ KennieDaMeanie:
    Plus stores have that 30 day return thing if you're not happy with it return it it shouldn't need to be a huge deal lol

    Does everything I need it to however it's got some peculiarities that either I'm just being big dumb and not understanding right, or are a complete dealbreaker

  • KennieDaMeanie @ KennieDaMeanie:
    I'd love to own a good klipsch or Yamaha receiver but I don't really need to spend $200+ on a receiver living in a single bedroom apartment
