I'm sure many members in chat have heard me lament the loss of my "perfect" red original Nintendo DS.  I bought it from Goodwill for $20, and loved it because the case and hinges were in such nice shape.  Shortly after purchase, one of my kids commandeered it.   He had an old blue original DS whose hinges bit the dust years ago.  It was no big deal, I had a DS lite already. 


Fast forward a few years...and Jr. is cleaning up his room.  Garbage can and recycle bins are full of old stuff...and on my desk he puts "Ol' Red" and also a sweet Canon credit card calculator. 


It's still in great shape.  Welcome back Ol' Red!

DS is nice and comfy.   Nothing wrong with that system at all.

My wife has that same one; has not been used since she got her 3DS though. I just wish the screens were a bit brighter on it, otherwise still works perfectly.
