I was having constant problems with the og switches joycon controllers, After many fruitless, attempts of trying to fix the stick drift. aaand sticky buttons, I went researching alternative controllers and gonna say this is perfect so far Pairing was super quick and easy and it can hold a charge for days in my experience, Far more comfortable In your hands. a bit pricey but feels like a worthwhile investment if you don't wanna suffer with sucky og controllers. Thanks!
Packaging is gorgeous, a small detail I wanted to bring up, I ordered a pair (2) of the classic color model and I love how they look. Instructions on pairing with different devices are super easy to follow. Now let's talk about the feel and functionality: Weight is excellent, the feel of the joysticks is incredible, the analog triggers are really good too, the grip and feel of the gamepad in my hands and my girlfriend's is just really comfortable. Right thumb buttons are nice, clicky, I like them, they could be a little softer but that's just my taste. When connected to the Switch, response is flawless but when connected to my laptop I can notice a small delay when I'm waiting for the right time to jump while playing Cuphead for example, it might be related to my setup though... I'm leaving a 5 star while I try to fix this issue on my end lol.
To sum it up, the quality for the price is just amazing, if you're considering on buying one please do.
PS. I'm living in Mexico and they came in perfect conditions after 10 days of ordering them here in the official 8BitDo's site.
This controller arrived late (not surprising considering it was shipped from the far side of the world, but it was still annoying to watch it sit without tracking updates for many days.) Then it started rattling as soon as I tried to take it out of the box. When I actually tried using it, I immediately discovered not all of the advertised features work together: depending on mode, gyro motion controls are mutually exclusive with analog triggers - and the back paddle buttons don’t expose themselves to your device (such as Steam Input on the Deck) for advanced mapping; instead you can only map them using 8bitdo’s software to mimic an existing button, which is nearly useless. I’ve spent the last week exchanging emails with the support team trying to arrange a return, so expect to have a protracted argument when anything goes wrong.
Ordered 3 weeks ago and still hasn't arrived. If I knew it would take this long I would have purchased somewhere else.
Very high quality controller and simple to set up. Love it
