Pros: This is the Nintendo Wii version RVL101 and is capable of playing Nintendo Wii games.
Cons: Unlike the Wii version RVL001, the RVL101 does not feature Gamecube support of any kind. Your Gamecube games will not work with this machine like previous versions of the Nintendo Wii.
Nowhere in the technical specifications on Newegg is this lack of support mentioned. When the box comes, you have to look at the fine print on the side of the box to find this out. Chances are you have already opened the box and found out the hard way by the time this happens.
Other Thoughts: I am completely disgusted with Nintendo over this change in design, and I would have never bought a new Nintendo Wii if I had known the backwards compatibility was removed. It was the entire reason I bought a Wii in the first place.

Pros: Great gaming system for kids..it's cheap and has many fun games. That said, it's not top-of-the-line, but we all know that going in. For those who gave poor reviews because you're obsessed with GameCube, that's just not fair. This IS NOT GAMECUBE, and you know better. This review is to help balance those poor reviews, which are nonsense.
Cons: Doesn't migrate as well to PC game play as XBox and PS3 (even with adapter)
Other Thoughts: Great price ($69 with promo code thru 4/20/13), but sold out..

Pros: I really like the Wii because it helps get the kids active on days the weather isn't as nice as we would like. Example:Rain This is the second wii we have owned. The first one lasted a long time and it was dropped when we moved, so I do not blame Nintendo at all. It even allowed you to play game cube games.
Cons: This model does not have the ability to use game cube games.
Having problems as on 1/10 A replacement wii we got our son for the major Christmas gift and it is already having problems.
Other Thoughts: I love Nintendo and have always been a fan since I was a kid with the NES and now my son who is 5 play games from NES-Wii (his fave is SNES and Wii) and soon the wii-u I really hope that I just happen to have received a bad system and that this is not going to speak for the future of Nintendo.
