please let me know how you like it, I'd like to get someones honest opinion on it after they get their hands on one.

I don't plan to buy one, but I'm still curious as to how many people will just turn off the 3D function to get better battery life in light of the complaints. Remember to give us your personal review.

The 3D effect is awesome. Wow!

The AR games rule. (But will be boring pretty quick I guess - they are more like casual mini games.)

3D camera is amazing too.

It's a lot more heavy than the DS.

DS mode looks pretty ugly next to the new higher res games.

Will post more about battery life later I guess.

How well does the 3d work if you're not standing perfectly still? I heard the 3d sweet spot was fairly small which seems like it would be problematic walking, bouncing along in a car etc. Seems like it wouldn't work well with the tilting of the 3ds for the accelerometers.

If you have the 3D "control" at the lowest point (the depth of the scenery drops) the viewing angle is large enough for car/walking bouncing. But in accelerometer games (I have Monkey Ball 3D) you get a flickering display.

Thanks, I had been quite curious about those questions for a while and no review/preview really seemed to address them.
