    Type of review

    I specially posted a photo without licking the controller so that you can see what will happen to it in 1.5 years of average use. No scratches, no chips or cracks. The charge holds great! If you asked me whether it is worth taking it for an owl? definitely yes! when you're playing on TV, it's easy to rock the JoyCon with its fragile sticks in the heat of some doom or Smash bros. An irreplaceable thing! And it’s worth every (and I took it for 3500, in my opinion), but the prices bite now and…

    • - comfortable grip - conveniently located buttons and ease of pressing them - very good autonomy (3-4 days of active play holds) - the materials are good, except for the buttons, they are original to the touch (for 1.5 years, not a single scuff and scratch) - impact resistance (dropped many times on the laminate, not a single crack) - amazing reliability (I already changed 1 to 2 revision of the switch, and at the same time did not change the procontroller, I already changed joy con 3 times under warranty on two generations of the switch due to drift, but here everything is generally perfect)!
    • - the triggers are not analog, the force of pressing is not regulated, in racing it is either the gas at full strength, or you let go and you have to release the gas. - stiff cross (apparently the reliability of the design is just in the rigidity of the buttons, it is tight, unusual after XBOX and PS4)

    Thought it would be better, but overall not bad.

    I decided to leave this review after the news about the increase in prices for Nintendo products. I remember being among the pioneer advocates for Nintendo, believing that prices were a temporary problem. But even now I'm changing my shoes. This is really disrespectful to people. 6500 for a gamepad seriously? Guys, did you hold this gamepad in your hands? I'll try to describe. It's just cheap: cheap plastic and a plastic cross, which . how to describe it . you know, when a plastic thing lasts a

    • 1. Really holds a charge for a long time. 2. Well lies in the hands. 3. USB Type-C connection.
    • 1. Disgusting terrible cross. 2. Price that does not match the quality. 3. Lack of trigger buttons.

    I wasn't thrilled with the product, but it can be used.

    The gamepad is excellent, only the gyroscope and presentation are upset, if you play through an adapter on dsh4, then this one does not make sense to take, in dsh 4 the gyroscope works just as well when connected to nintendo, the pro controller does not have smooth triggers, these are just buttons, keep due to

    • Comfortable, pleasant to the touch, lies well in the hands, there is a gyroscope, pleasant button presses
    • Gyroscope! I took it to play Zelda, as a result, it either does not react until you shake it hard, or it works in jerks, what is the reason, it’s not clear to me, while I’m dealing with the manufacturer’s support, cross, frequent false positives, I knew about it when I took it, but I play on sticks and the cross plays a small role for me, the package from came without manufacturer's stickers, that is, the box was opened, there is a crumpled internal strut, possibly a used gamepad, so I have problems with the gyroscope. The price is not the cheapest.

    Average product, you can do better.

    Overall, the best gempad for the Switch, but if you look at it in a vacuum, it's pretty weak. I do not advise taking it for a PC, although it works well if necessary - there are not enough features and the terrible DPAD spoils everything.

    • Convenient large buttons Good stick with smooth action without dead zones or non-linearities Gyroscope USBC
    • No analog triggers! The Switch doesn't have them either, but that doesn't make the device control any better. Analog triggers have been the industry standard for a long time, and even past Nintendo consoles had them. The cross is terrible. It is completely unsuitable for games in which it is actively used - instead of the "shatalka" it is all like one button, you can hold it all at once. In platformers and games like Tetris, this is a big problem, pressing right / left all the time turns up / down with it.

    Great quality, did not expect at all for the price.

    But there are already more advantages - for starters, it is fully compatible with a PC without any tricks. It is equipped with a built-in gyroscope, accelerometer, NFC (for working with amibo) and a battery (not batteries like those of the same Microsoft), and there is also a very high-quality Type-c cable in the kit.

    • Compared to joycons, a normal large joystick is much more convenient. The smooth movement of the sticks and their larger angle allow you to aim more accurately and correctly control the movement of the character without unnecessary jerks. It would seem that why even write about a more ergonomic version of the joy-con. But I have something to compare it with in addition to the complete ones. Of course with the joystick from X-Box One. And here the difference is no longer so obvious because they are the same in form: Unless the Xbox platform is a little larger, the handles are a little longer and the crosspiece is not much different in shape. But in general, Nintendo designers clearly did not reinvent the wheel, which is good. Now let's go through the prices to determine the need for a purchase for a PC (all prices will be approximate and without seasonal discounts): - 4000 - the approximate price of a nintendo pro controller, complete with which we also get a charging cord and a battery immediately installed on board. - The option from Microsoft here seems cheaper than only 3500 on average, but you also need a battery, and this is another 1500. Bottom line: is it worth taking it for a switch - definitely. Whether it is worth taking to play on a PC depends on the need for a wireless connection.
    • The only drawback of the switch joystick is perhaps the lack of a smooth running of the triggers, and this is critical in racing.

    Good product, not disappointed.

    I bought it purely because when connecting via third-party dongles of the Xbox gamepad, it would be impossible to turn on the console from it. If this function is important to you, like me, then you should take it when the price is less than 5k, otherwise you should consider other gamepads, to which this one is still inferior.

    • Pleasant pressing of the buttons, triggers, surprisingly the crosspiece, in the hand the gamepad lies comfortably and pleasantly, especially after the joycons. Stick travel and ergonomics. Huge battery life (up to 80 hours). Charging via USB-C.
    • Glossy insert on top, it is not clear why it was made, it gets very dirty very quickly and badly. YXAB buttons feel and act cheaply The vibration motor is not very pleasant (here it is the same as in the joycons and is not felt so strongly). Well, the design is very much for an amateur, which I am not.

    Just super, it's beautifully made, I'm very happy with it.

    Top controller Got pros: Comfortable, pleasant to the touch plastic, HD Rumble, gyroscope, soft stick movement, a guarantee from Nin with a replacement in case of marriage, no questions asked. Some cons: The crosspiece is inconvenient, it is not always read correctly

    Great quality, happy with it one hundred percent!

    Top controller. Has pros: Now in fighting games the wife with standard horses suffers. Buttons and levers are larger, softer and nicer than stock. Got cons: Feeling that the case itself is a little smaller than the ideal size could be. If the size of the palms is Asian - that's it.

    The best thing I've ever used, I recommend it to everyone!

    I used ordinary joycons for several months - convenient, but not 10/10. I thought about buying a procon (pro controller) for a long time - I decided, especially since the discount is not bad. No regrets - definitely worth the money! Pros: Extremely high quality, nice and comfortable joystick. No worse than the level of joysticks from PS and Xbox :) Has cons: It will take a few days to get used to the greater "stroke" of the sticks and the location of the buttons. After getting used to it, it is

    Reliable purchase, guaranteed to be a good purchase.

    For all Steam users, we cut it via Bluetooth, go to Steam - big picture mode, turn on support (tick) and adjust the course of ogues. The saturation of the blue LED backlight can be changed))). It will not work on other sites (GOG, BatelNet), but if there is a stray radio from the Chinese, like the 8BitDo Wireless USB Adapter (sold on Ali), it works great and works in almost all games with pad support.

    • The gamepad is very handy. Ning has a huge experience in developing pads, here the ps4 and xbox one pads were nowhere near (I speak as the owner of all 3 pads) - large ons, a clear move, convenient "shifts" and "standard" triggers for Ning, not og, but GameCub type, but in fact for all games (except racing) this is a huge plus, tested on many projects. - the cross is worse than usual, but better than the compeion - rubberized plastic, matte inserts - JoyCon type vibration motor for Switch - HD rumble - Amiibo support - built-in NFC. - Standard USB-C - the battery keeps charging out of compeion, calmly takes out a week of intense play (1300mah) pad number indicator + blue ring (when connected to Steam, more on that below)
    • The price is in the 2022, discounts are not often, but you can for 3100 - 3500, if you're lucky. No 3.5mm headphone jack. Dancing with a tambourine when connected to a PC.

    A valuable purchase, some advantages!

    <subjectively>: For convenience, as from the X Box Series, but there is also a gyroscope with an accelerometer. Tried this case in a shooter. Feelings are strange, but overall an interesting experience. Customizable with any (or almost any) shooter in the Steam settings. Pros below: - holds a charge for a long time - high quality cable included - quite comfortable (purely subjective characteristic) - Works seamlessly with both Nintendo and Steam. Cons below: For those who are thinking of taking

    A great option for this money, one of the best offers.

    Tired of rearranging the joycons on the Switch, I decided to take the Pro Controller. I bought it for 2 thousand less thanks to discount coupons. The gamepad is comfortable, lies well in the hands, pleasant to the touch. After half a year of using joycons, the classic d-pad is somewhat unusual, and the sticks and buttons seem large, so you have to get used to it. In general, everything is fine, practical, reliable. Good gamepad. There is only one minus - it is not quite suitable for a PC…

    • Quality materials, good ergonomics, reliability
    • PC operation

    Revainrating 5 out of 5

    Exactly as promised by the manufacturer, high quality.

    Joycons are convenient, but when the question arose of buying additional kits or a gamepad for joint games, I decided to stop at the gamepad. I think it's safer to play shooting games on a gamepad and save joycons for trips and sports games. To connect to a PC, it is enough to purchase any bluetooth receiver. I launch games through Steam and enjoy convenient controls. The Home button, when connected to a PC, is highlighted in a pleasant blue color.

    • Bought for Nintendo, eventually play on PC. I recommend it as a mandatory purchase for the console in order to save native joycons. - Fits comfortably in the hand - Excellent vibration - Clear gyroscope - Robust construction
    • The price is high compared to the Xbox controller.

    Cool product, happy with the purchase, maybe Ill buy it again.

    A must-have item for playing on the switch in stationary mode. Easy to connect, remotely turns on the set-top box. It has all the functionality you need for games. It lies pleasantly in the hands, although there is no wow effect like from xbox one s. There is no minijack, and the switch itself does not have the ability to connect bluetooth headphones, which is extremely inconvenient.

    • Not bad lies in the hands (however, it seems that it is designed for very small hands). Nice rough material of the legs. Holds a charge for a very long time. Much longer than controller, for example. Very good sticks, suitable for shooters.
    • The triggers do not have a smooth stroke, but work like discrete buttons. Weak vibration. Fingers do not hold very securely on the sticks in the heat of battle. No headphone jack.

    Not a bad purchase, worth the money.

    I owned an Xbox one controller on a PC for 4 years and it was ok, but I wanted a gyroscope for aiming actions, because. during this time, he never learned to aim with sticks, some kind of perversion. And here the controller is already mentally and physically tired, the right stick is out of balance from the center and all that. I waited for information about the release of new consoles, looked at what controllers were offered with them, spat, and decided to make a knight's move by buying a…

    • Grip is more comfortable than xbox one controller The abxy buttons protrude above the case and are a good size, thumb like native Good quality sticks Battery for real 40 hours, passed 80% of the game Zelda Wind Waker on a single charge Works great with steam, anything can be reassigned Connects to the computer instantly, the reception is excellent (external bluetooth adapter DEXP) Strong quality assembly, coped with several complete disassemblies, assembled in one piece The severity and beauty of the design is impressive (black standard version), it seems like a simple control panel, but it looks amazing in the interior of the apartment The presence of a gyroscope
    • Small off button The cross, as everyone rightly says, is very picky about the accuracy of pressing, but this is completely fixable (see comment) Japanese (reverse European) abxy layout, the buttons of which cannot be physically swapped by disassembling the controller, their mounting shape inside is different, as a result, A is B, and B is A, also with XY

    The right product for me, the price suited me.

    I used an Xbox One controller on a PC for four years, and while it worked alright, I longed for a gyroscope that would improve my ability to aim because. At this time, he never acquired the skill of aiming with sticks, which is strange in and of itself. And at this point, the controller is not only emotionally but also physically exhausted; the right stick is off-kilter with respect to the center, and so on. I waited for information on the debut of new consoles, looked at what controllers were…

    • Grip provides superior comfort compared to the Xbox One controller. The abxy buttons protrude over the case and are of a good size, comparable to the size of a native thumb. Sticks of a high grade 40 hours of battery life, and I've already completed 80 percent of the game. One charge is sufficient to play Zelda: Wind Waker. Everything is up for grabs, and it works wonderfully with Steam. Instantaneous connection to the PC; exceptional signal reception (external bluetooth adapter DEXP) The assembly was of high quality, was able to withstand being disassembled completely multiple times, and was put back together in one piece. It looks like a straightforward control panel, but it does an incredible job of sprucing up the interior of the apartment. The design is impressive both in its severity and its beauty (in the black standard version). The existence of a gyroscope in the device
    • A tiny button labeled "off" Everyone is correct when they claim that the cross is very particular about the accuracy of pushing, but this is something that can be entirely fixed (see comment) Japanese (reverse European) abxy layout, the buttons of which cannot be physically changed even after disassembling the controller since their mounting shape inside is different; as a consequence, A is B, and B is A, along with XY.

    Excellent product, the best quality.

    Its pros: Excellent build quality (dissatisfied most likely took copies from the Chinese) Battery life Ease of connection Cons: The left D-pad is not the best solution, there are false positives when switching weapons (press to the right, but the action works down)
