Review Summary

This is the summary of consumer reviews for Nintendo DSi XL. The BoolPool rating for this product is Excellent, with 4.70 stars, and the price range is $127.00-$210.00.

Nintendo DSi XL is a great hand held gaming device with two big 4.2 inch screens and two integrated digital VGA cameras. The cameras have a low resolution of only .3 MP but they work fine and the photoshop feature is liked by many reviewers. The voice recorder quality is awesome. The home screen is completely revamped from the DS/DS lite versions giving it a nicer look and ability to rearrange icons. It also comes with a big stylus. The games are easy to download and are fun to play. Parents like the availability of good educational games like BrainAge. It also has built-in WIFI that allows multiplayer games.

Since it has 2 big screens, it is not very portable and does not fit in pocket. Reviewers complain that the web browser is painfully slow. It is not intended for games with HD graphics and it has no flash.

Overall this is a great handheld gaming device and provides good value for its price.
