    The controller is amazing! The quality felt like the oem SNES controller as I still have my original controllers. The analog sticks feel like they were there all along, as well as the L2/R2 buttons! I use this on my Switch, phone, and am trying to figure out how to use on a PS4. The bad was I purchased one from Best Buy that said was Open Box Excellent Condition and included everything. This has never happened before but I guess an employee was feeling lazy and did not check the contents of the box. Luckily I have other USB-C cables. I cannot go to the store to return it and its a hassle online. I tried to call and the wait time was over two hours. So just be wary if you buy an open box controller that says everything is in there.

    Pros mentioned:
    Design

    I initially bought this to play games on my new Surface when I'm out and about. It feels so right, that I use it with my Surface, Android phone, and Nvidia Shield. Great for retro and modern games. Connects easily and reliably. I plan to get a second controller to take with me for random 2-player gaming opportunities on the bus, lunch breaks, at the park.

    Pros mentioned:
    Buttons

    If you have small hands then this controller is surprisingly ergonomic. Buttons feel great and low travel time when using the D-Pad, which has a much more satisfying press than even the Pro Controller. The inclusion of the analog sticks are fantastic. Look and feel exactly like the PS4 DS4, and even in the same location. Very easy to pair with a Nintendo Switch and the included charge cable is an added bonus.

    This controller is great, it can be paired with multiple devices at a time and has great accuracy. It also packs pretty well, given its fairly flat form factor. I would definitely buy this again in a heartbeat, it would be really great if they made a phone clip which could hold the Galaxy Fold 2 for this controller. Definitely try and buy it on sale

    Great controller! I bought it for playing NES and SNES games on the Nintendo Switch. While the Pro controller is great for Switch games, it didn’t have the right feel for the older virtual console games. The 8BitDo did the trick. It’s not the cheapest thing out there, but the quality is top notch and the ‘button-feel’ is at least as good as the original system controllers. No lag, either. Battery life is also outstanding - I charge it every few days, but never seen it drop below 50%, even after hours of constant play.

    I use this on my RetroPie, it can tricky to set up if your a not a Linux user, but you can find plenty of guides on the internet. Make sure you upgrade the firmware first, so it is more compatible with what you want to use.

    Stellar build quality for the price. At this time 8bitdo is by far the best bang for the buck. Also check out their other controllers, I especially love their arcade stick.

    With a tried, tested and true shape that has been seamlessly updated to modern standards, absolutely a controller that belongs in any collection. Fantastic analogue sticks that feel better than the sticks I have used on other similar controllers such as the Switch pro controller, amazing D-PAD that functions with the best of them which is sure to keep 2D aficionados happy, solidly constructed face buttons with trigger buttons that just have an oh so satisfying click when you press them.

    This is a great controller. Seeing as how the official SNES controller for Switch is always sold out on Nintendo's website, this is the next best thing, maybe even a bit better with the inclusion of the two sticks and trigger buttons. It also works on your phone, if you're into that kinda thing. Just remember to update the firmware to make sure everything is up to date!

    Definitely feels like a SNES controller and the extra triggers, analog sticks, and wireless capabilities are a nice bonus. Connects right up with my Switch and is great to have around as a player 2 controller without shelling out $80 for joy cons.

    I have a Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1, that I use SNES and NES emulators on, and this controller connects wirelessly to my tablet without lag and amazing response, so as far as performance it exudes expectations. The size is practically the same as original SNES controller except it's a little bit heavier due to the built-in battery. I felt it was a little pricey but considering the cost of most controllers I'm very happy with this purchase and the quality of the device.

    If you're looking to have that SNES nostalgic controller feel, this is a go to. I love using this to play SNES games on my switch. It's also very convenient that it can connect to pretty much anything else for other retro games you have saved on other platforms. Highly recommend!

    I researched some pad for games and most of non brand is cheaper than 8bitdo controlller but most of a gamer recommended this controller for their emulator or platform. I tested this one for a few days and this one is for all my computer and emulator controller. First i used it for Amazon Firestick and it works but it wont work for retropie with usb wires. I checked official website and download the firmware to update it then it works well. I highly recommend this one for a retro gamer.
