    Both extension cords worked fine upon arrival. Within a week one of the two completely stopped working. Now, a month later, the second extension cord works only intermittently, requiring us to unplug and plug back in every 5-10 minutes. Plugging controllers directly into the system itself causes no problems, so it is easy to isolate the extenders as the problem. Disappointed.

    Poor quality

    At first, I thought this was an awesome buy. However, after a day I noticed if you move the cords while playing it shorts your console from the loose connection between the extension cable and controller. This happened with both of the extension cables I purchased, not just one. It’s a defective product and I wouldn’t suggest anyone buy it. I hope the wireless controller edition is a better product.

    I bought this product a few months after I bought my NES because I didn't know there was an extension for it until I was told. I went to buy it and took it home only to find out that one of the cords wasn't working. Its again been a few weeks since I bought it and never had the time to return the product. not happy with it.

    I Purchased Two of these, one for each controller and both broke within a month. Controllers do not respond when plugged in with the extension. Tried powering the system off and on. Tried plugging it in with the SNES on and the system freezes. Tried each one on the other controller and nothing. Poor Quality.

    One cord defective out of the box

    One cord works great and is a must-have item that I've tested on the NES classic. The other cord was defective out of the box and simply didn't work. Not much fun to deal with, so hopefully Best Buy will let me exchange it. If they'll exchange, then I'll recommend 5 stars, otherwise this was a bust!

    This item did not work on my NES Classic. I plugged in port controller ports and nothing, no communication. Best Buy has good return policy so that's a plus.

    One cable arrived dead. So much for quality control. It's a good thing I knew that they would fail me, so I bought backups on Amazon of other brands that actually worked

    It's like Nintendo and Insignia shook hands before the release. It's practically mandatory to make this purchase due to how short the cord is that comes with the console. SMH

    Giving this one only because the NES Classic controller should've already came with a long enough cord and not have to spend another $10 or so dollars to extend the length.

    Only used the cables for about a week and one of them went bad. Did not bother to return it because box was already thrown away

    I was very excited to back up from the TV since the NES Classic’s controler cord is so short, but my cords didn’t work. I tried them both and no luck. Will be returning today.

    Doesn't add much more length to control.Plus, it isn't compatible with Classic remote that the console comes with.

    We plugged them in and controlers wouldn't work. Plugged controllers in without extensions and they worked great.

    I was hoping these would give me the length I needed to be farther away from the tv to play....neither cord works at all.

    Died after first use. Controller works without extension. Extension worked great if you’re seeking only a single use.

    They absolutely didn't work out of the box. I bought the 10' 2 pack from Amazon and they work like a champ.
