Not bad if you are looking at saving some extra cash and really want a 3DS.

Neat. back in late 2011 my niece's Cosmo Black 3DS had the wireless switch crap out on her and get completely stuck to where it wouldn't move at all. sent it in for repairs only to find out that they actually had to replace the whole system because it was unfixable.

We got her 3DS back but it ended up being a refurbished unit. upon inspecting it you would think this was a brand spanking new 3DS. it was damn near perfect. maybe 2-3 super super light hairline scratches on the top shell of the 3DS (glossy part) that could only be seen in good light. it was pretty much 95%+ flawless.

Buying a refurb unit from Nintendo (if the price was right of course) is definatly a safe bet that you'll get great quality. you definatly wouldn't need to worry.

What a bunch of criminals trying to sell used products. I hope they go out of business.

Obviously sarcasm.
As to Last's post, selling used stuff isn't the problem, selling used stuff as new is.
Anyways, this topic isn't a Gamestop topic, so let's not talk about this here now.

A 3DS repaired by Nintendo. It'll have a 1 year warranty like a new 3DS.

Not worth it until they cut the price to below $100 for a refurbished 3DS.

Its $160 for a new 3DS with warranty. I think $100-120 is far for refurbished with a warranty. Below $100 is fine if you're buying as is, but you aren't buying it used on Craig's List, you're buying a system from Nintendo with a warranty.
