I am VERY NitPicky! I work hard for my money and when I buy something new, it had better be flawless! It had better not have dust or smudges like its been played by employees (GS!) or returned and repackaged. It had better not have mechanical faults. The loose back cover of the XL annoys me but dead pixels or otherwise damaged screen or any non-working buttons/controls would be intolerable.

You're all hallucinating or something. Every time I come here, there are about ten threads going "hurr durrr my screen has a smudge or something, I'll go spend more money now or wait two weeks to fix it wahh.."

I've bought every system since DS Lite; it worked right out of the box and looked fine, but then again, I didn't scrutinize every micrometer of it first, so I might have missed a stray line.
I can't blame the guy for complaining about a big gash across the screen, flickering, sticking buttons (sometimes they merely need broken in if it's NEW), a missing stylus, etc. because those are serious oversights.
But it's never that. It's lines, smudges, scuffs, specks, squeaks, clicks, "my screen is .01 lumens darker than his screen."

It's going to get scathed and abraded probably a week or so later during normal use, so who cares? It's not 10,000% pristine, nor will it look as it did immediately after the moment it was assembled. And all products will look or perform slightly different.

Bringing things back cost money, and sometimes employee morale, especially at the multitude I've seen around here, which in turn can affect future production, so quit blaming Nintendo or other companies over your OCD. And if cosmetic blemishes are really your biggest worry, then just quit buying stuff.


Yup. 100% agree.

My screens never get messed up after a few weeks, If you use cases and take good care of your screen you can have it looking new for a long time.

Those lines that always appear on the 3DS when I open it is poor development on Nintendo's part. Nintendo can be critized too people, they aren't God.

As for these lines, if TC is talking about that, my black 3DS gets these pretty much every time I open it after a while. Not a big deal.

I always have to run my finger through them to get them off.

I shouldn't have to carry around a towel for cleaning it, this is supposed to be a portable system.
