I have actually purchased this system and have been using it for almost a month now. I am not some "Nintendo Fanboy" or anything like that. This is an honest opinion of my impressions of this product. Take this system for what it is. This was designed to be an extremely portable system, and nothing more. This was not meant to be Nintendo's "next big money maker", this product was designed specifically for individuals like me to have another option to play their gba games on. This game selection for this system is huge. Really great titles for this system can be picked up at most chain game stores for as low as $10. Though I doubt any new titles wil be made for the GBA line, if you are like me and have plenty of titles which can be played over and over again, you will love this sytem. I can throw it into my pocket and not have to worry about any lame jokes or scratching the miniscule thing. Because of the removable faceplates, if it get scratched enough to affect gameplay, just pull it off and put on a new one. I have yet to amount anything but surface scratches onto it yet, so it seems pretty resilent to scratches, thought I wouldn't throw it into your pocket with a bunch of change. Now when I first got it, I was like "Sweet Jesus, this thing is too small, I am not gonna be able to play any games on it." But to my surprise, on screen items such as text are easily read. The screen is incredibly bright and is easily read in direct sunlight. The sound coming from the tiny speaker does sound extremely tinny, but I usually don't play with sound anyways. It also comes with a much needed headphones port so you don't irritate people on long-distance travels. The micro is incredibly light, so is not tiring to hold. The ONLY problem I have encountered with this system is the placement of the L and R buttons. They are positioned at the top of the unit, and they must be pressed towards the center of the unit for a push to register. This can be slightly uncomfortable in games that require you to hold either of these buttons. I have also read many reviews on the net where some individuals have gotten headaches after playing with the system for a short while. I have not gotten a headache at any time while playing this system. Though, I am rather resilent to any motion sickness or anything such as that. You have been warned.
Overall, this is an excellent system, and I am very happy with my purchase. If you already have alot of GBA games, or want a system that will actually fit into your pocket, this is a great system.
Pro's - Small size, bright screen, huge game selection, and changeable faceplates.
Con's - L and R buttons are inefficent, doesn't play older Gameboy games, and not in my case, but there have been reports of headaches.
