    received in new box but when plugged in 1 did not work and the 3 foot cable that comes on controller is to short to use by itself , took back to best by in river city but they were out and had no idea when they would receive more so kept the set so that could use the one good one ordered a new set online a nd received from Wal-Mart so now I have a new set but its 38 miles one way to return at store so I will keep the one that good for a spare so that when my grand children come over they have something to do when it rains but will be leery to purchase from best buy again as store does not carry what is on line.

    These are great but a shame you have to buy

    They work for the most part. However, the makers of the classic should have longer cables attached to the controllers already. This completely feels like a case of a company trying to milk the consumer of all the money it can. Also, do not try to plug two extension cables or more together for one controller. When the button is pressed, it will get the system on a delay and it really loses some of the functionality. I'm recommending to a friend because you can't play anything with the controller and cable that is attached to it. This product is a necessity.

    Hooked up the first extension cable and it did not work. Connected the second one and it is working just fine... so far. I only have one controller, so now it isn't a huge deal. Got this pretty cheap on sale so not really worth the trouble returning it with the defective one. The one that does work though makes gaming much better and more comfortable especially since I have a 65" TV.

    Same bad design

    I should have trusted my gut and got the wireless controllers these have the same poor design flaws as the original nes mini. They have a slight delay and they crink and curl up easily. They offer the reach from the television that you would want but I would just suggest putting you snes mini on your coffee table and avoiding these wires altogether.

    This cable are a good idea for Nintendo to get more money out of you. The classic Nintendo came with a very short cable so you are obligated to buy this extensions to be able to play comfortable, because the original control is only three feet long. They know is not enough to play, so now you have to buy an extra accessory to play the game.

    Bad cable

    I was a little concerned while buying these cables from an off brand manufacturer. My fears were realized. One bad cable. Now get to wait 10+ days for replacements. Problem is, these cables were pushed by BB as a package deal (along with a second controller).

    It’s a great thing that some items come cheap, but then again this should not be that item. Gaming can be intense, cords get jerked around and controllers thrown. This extension cord should be sturdier.

    I had to return the cables because one of them didn’t work. Construction is what you would expect from the brand but overall once it was exchanged it got the job done.

    With the wireless remotes these seem pointless but if I were to sit closer to the TV it would be ok

    One core worked one didn’t. Didn’t waste my time going back to store since it was so cheap.

    This should be included with the console.

    The standard remote cable is very short so these are a must.
