    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.

    I recently purchased the Nintendo switch and I don’t prefer the Joy cons. I found this joystick, which is one of my favorite joystick’s type. I’ve owed every Nintendo except the Nintendo 64. So you can imagine that I have experience using different Nintendo joysticks. It connects easily to the game console, the buttons do not stick, and the wireless range extends really far. The look, feel and configurations are the same as the original. I amVery pleased with this joystick and in conclusion, I refuse to share it with my kids 7,18,20.... lol

    Got two of these for my Raspberry PI 4 running RetroPie. They were nearly seamless to setup. They hold a charge well, fit nicely in the hand, and work for all games I've tried them with. Some reviewers have complained about the buttons being offset slightly from the original SNES controllers. I have some original SNES controllers that I still use and although I agree that the offset is noticeable, it does not affect my game play at all. I highly recommend these controllers for any retro gaming, but they are also versatile enough to work for most new games too!

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    Everything about this controller is great. Buttons, D-pad, joystick. All top notch. It's also very light. If you have really big hands, this may be too small.

    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 lucked out one day going to Best Buy to browse around and found they now sell 8bitdo controllers. It is the best controller on the market for bluetooth and wireless communications on your devices. I use mine for my PC and Nintendo Switch alike and haven't experienced any issues.
