Anyone else had this problem? I say had, turns out NoA will offer you a replacement if you have a split. I've no idea where NoE stands so I'm going in blind today to argue why I should get a new DS Lite.
noticed a few things if it helps anyone picking between black/white. still only personal experience it might be just bad luck... I've played with 2 black DS Lites (my first one and my girlfriends), and 2 whites (2nd and 3rd DS's) the list! -
Black Lites look fugly after being used but are absolutely beautiful when pristine.
The top screen "clicks" into place, very reassuring 'locked' noise.
The volume slider seems tougher, like the original DS.
Uses a slightly more sensitive touch screen.
White Lites hide everything, no marks or fingerprints on the actual smooth plastic. the matte stuff looks to taint over time.
Volume slider is wobbly
Top screen doesn't click into place.
First model had a sensitive screen. Second one uses the same as the old DS.
Oh, and GAME replaced my DS Lite despite the split being hairline. Reassuring to us brits no doubt.
I prefer Gamestation to GAME - cheaper plus they have a wider variety of pre-owned stuff where I live
I'm not sure why the colour of the DS lite would affect the product itself? I'd guess that the wobbly volume button was just a problem with that single DS. Unless the white DS are produced differently to the black ones.. I don't know
My original chunky DS was strong though - never had a problem with it. Only thing is, it looked a bit ugly. So I sold it
i hav 10000 (one millions) ds litez and dey are all never broked
By a route obscure and lonely,
Haunted by ill angels only,
Where an Eidolon, named night,
On a black throne reigns upright,
I have reached these lands but newly
From an ultimate dim Thule
From a wild clime that lieth, sublime,
Out of space
Out of time.
My brother just got a DS Lite white with New Super Mario Bros. The game is ossum, Im gonna have to get a DS lite too, the screen seems so much clearer and bright! I can see how the white plastic inside could become very dirty though
