    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:
    Buttons, Charging

    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.

    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.

    The SN30 and the SN30+ are amazing universal controllers with excellent build quality and comfort. I use my SN30+ on my PC, Switch, iPhone, AppleTV, and Playstation 4. I purchased two SN30s for my sons since they like to play games on their iPhones, Switches, and PCs. The SN30 servers as an easy to use and well built three in one solution!

    I've had my SN30 for a little bit now, and I have tried it on my switch and phone. I can say it's a sturdy design and surprisingly comfortable. The d pad can be a little touchy (ie extra directions getting pressed when you press the pad), but its not a huge hassle for me. The only reason I did not review at a 5 is the syncing. It works well for what it is but syncing a switch can be a little hassle and remembering what requires d-input vs x-input.

    Wanted to run emulation on the NVidia Shield, and am very happy with it. It connected without any problem whatsoever, and although I haven't had it that long this unit enables multiplayer (we are now playing 3-at-once Mario Kart and are having a blast). BestBuy has these on sale too - and even less if you can score an open-box near you. Highly recommended!

    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.

    Most SNES controllers lack the versatility of this SNES controller. Very responsive and charges right up with usb type c it is a great way to play the old school games that were made for it l. Over I would recommend this controller to anyone who wants one for the Switch or a tablet.

    Can't say enough good things about this controller. It works great. The build quality is amazing and it fits in any bag you want to through it in. Turn it on and get it connected and the bluetooth works perfectly. I've never had any connectivity issues and the integration with Steam is perfect. Price is actually more than reasonable for the features and portability of this controller.

    This was the first controller I bought after buying my Switch, Bought specifically for Tetris 99 and Super Mario Bros. but ended up using for more modern games. Very comfortable and battery lasts forever.

    8bitDo makes some good controllers. It feels pretty close to the original SNES controller and works great. Can be setup on android ios, mac, and windows as well as the switch to act like a pro controller. no complaints.

    I’ve had this for a while now and I love using it for games like smash or Zelda. It gives me nostalgic feelings. The battery life is good, and I actually prefer it to the pro controllers. I just kind of stumbled upon this while looking for graphics cards. It was tucked away in the back and I’m so glad I gave it a chance. It’s a little expensive.

    I love the original SNES controller and this adds two triggers and 2 analog sticks. With the latest firmware there is no lag on my PC and SNES classic. Highly recommended!

    This has quickly become one of my favorite controllers for almost any gaming scenario. Excellent quality that combines aspects of the old and new school. I now plan on picking up the pro version as well as it’s blown me away with how awesome it is.

    After nearly a year of being delayed the SN30 Pro Plus is here and I spent the week trying it out and seeing how it worked in games on both the Nintendo Switch and PC. So far I have to say this is a great value
