It's my first 3Ds Xl, I waited for years to get one because always found the screen to small in the original Ds and seemed made poorly. But I have to say how great the 3Ds xl is. I just love it and the bigger size is easier on the eyes and they made this one very well.
If you are thinking of getting a Ds get the 3Ds xl you will love it

      Comments about Nintendo 1001272 Nintendo 3DS XL Handheld Gaming System - Blue/Black:

      I play here and there throughout the day, mostly when my son naps/sleeps. I am really glad I bought this (my husband was going to get one, so I figured I should too). I love the 3D; you have the ability to turn it off or adjust it to your liking with a sliding switch on the side of the top part. I love that you can close the system at any time and it will put it in sleep mode, and when you open it again, it is exactly where you left off, even in the middle of battle! However, this action doesn't save anything, so I'm sure if something happened you would lose any unsaved data. I also carry it with me everywhere for the streetpass feature. The features of streetpass are dependent on the game, but if you pass by someone with the same console, it will pick up their information (non identifying). In the case of my current game, this adds villagers to the town I am building and I can get more things built quicker.
      The only thing I don't like is the volume switch location. I am constantly turning up the volume as I am playing, and I have to keep turning it back down.

      Overall, I love this system, I am glad I got one for myself, and now I am on the hunt for great games!

      As a side note: for all you old school gamers out there, the Nintendo eShop has the ORIGINAL mario's, zelda, arcade style donkey kong, metroid,etc. Available for download. Search for Virtual Console. I'm hoping they are working on adding tons more!

                  The 3DS XL has a an elegant and compact design, nicely evolved from the clunky DS of old. Though bigger than the regular 3DS, it still fits nicely into my purse or backback. If you're debating between this and a regular 3DS, I'd reccomend the XL as it's better for viewing the 3D effect and game graphics. As for the fun aspect, there's plenty of excellent games to keep you busy (I'd recomend Fire Emblem). I've also enjoyed carrying my 3DS with me around campus to get street passes from fellow gamers. I'm loving my 3DS so far!

                  It takes some time to get set up especially when you have an impatient child wanting to play. But once it's done you don't have to worry about anything. It's great to play and fun for all ages. Only thing I did not know till after we bought it, is that the "3D" part is only recommended for children over the age of 7, my son is 6. BUT, the 3D can be shut off which I am so glad for.

                    Great value for an excellent portable gaming system. Large size screen emphasizes gaming characters and overall greater visual effects for basic low bit games. 6yr old nephew loves this over his standard size DS gaming pod. would love to see an improvement in sound quality when not using headphones, but when headphones are used, sound is as great as any handheld system around.
