I bought this in May 2009 for our son. It worked great for the first few months, then it started having problems. I called Vtech and they told me how to re-set the thing. (unplug everything, hold in the power button for 30 seconds, plug it all back in). I found myself constantly calling Vtech. It would work for one game and then I'd have to do the whole re-set thing every time he swapped games. After about 6 or 7 different calls to Vtech, they finally had me send the system to them and replaced it with a new one. I got the new one yesterday, so we'll see how long it lasts. My son likes the games and we probably have about a dozen different games. I don't expect much for graphics on this, so that's not a big deal. I just shouldn't have to disconnect everything and re-set it every time he wants to switch games (and hope it powers back on)

I have to say that my kiddos got a vmotion for Christmas and they are so frustrated. They have been playing non stop with their Leapsters - no trouble. The V-motion. Ugh. My son I thought would break it at one point he was so frustrated.

Our "new one" also ended up having the same problems as the first one. I am now waiting to hear from VTech on a resolution.
