    Well, what type of DS do you have. Mention what type of DS you have, why you got that type, and if you had any before that.

    I had the original DS. I bought it the first day it came out I think. Well, maybe about a week ago my brother bought me the DS lite, Zelda Edition as an early Christmas present and I really enjoy it. The screens are much lighter and the handheld itself is much lighter and smaller.

    I have the DS Phat, I like it better than the Lite. It is more durable and It's the right weight. The only thing I like from Lite is the brighter screen

    I bought the original DS when it came out in 2003 or whatever.
    Just because it was sweet and I wanted it.
    Then the PSP came out and I bought it, but didn't really play it that much until LocoRoco came out and Socom 2.
    My friend bought the DS lite two summers ago, but something came up and he needed money so I bought it for 40 and sold my original DS for 80.

    DS phat forever. I hate the Lites, only thing going for them is the brightness. DS Phat is more durable, has better grip, better buttons and bigger speakers.

    Have a pink lite with Zelda stickers. It is the most badass thing ever. I will get pics up when I can.

    Oh, I have a Phat, too with a San Jose Sharks sticker on it. I don't like it cause it doesn't fit in my pocket that well and it looks like its from the 70's.

    Lite is the best. I used to carry the Phat in my pocket too, but it made my pocket stick out. Now I keep the Lite in my pocket. It goes with me everywhere, like a set of keys.

    Phat ftw!

    I didn't see the point of buying a whole new DS, when mine has worked just fine.
    And Why do I need a brighter screen even... And it looked liked a DS and an ipod didn't use protection:rolleyes:

    But for some reason I am attracted to that hot tri-force lite.

    In my house there are 5 DSlites.. .. .. 2 white, 1 black, one silver, one ex-white one now recased in red.

    Went for the lite over the original for the same kind of reasons that people upgraded their GBA to GBA SP - screen brightness, portability, weight.

    I had a DS phat, got it when it came out. I've always been a Nintendo Fanboy.

    I now have a white DS Lite, which I got over the summer, after trading in my old one, because I like the design better, and the brighter screens.

    I just love Nintendo Games, in general.

    I have a DS Phat but I'm getting a Lite 4 Christmas. I normally wouldn't bother but the bottom screen of my DS is a little scratched up and the battery is a bit worn down. I couldn't care less about the blindingly bright screens I just need a new DS and I like how sleek the DS Lite is.

    The DS Lite is so bright though. . . I'll probably only use the 2 lowest settings. :lol:

    Had a Phat traded in and got a Lite, then got a skin for the Lite. I'll find the pic I have of it.

    Edit: Here we go

    I got the DS Phat the first day it came out, and traded it in for a Black DS Lite the first day that came out.

    I still use the same one and I've never had a problem with it. :yesnod:

    I'm currently have an Onyx DS Lite.
    Goes along great with my Metallic Silver PSP.
    Both get used evenly, I don't favor one over the other.
