To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
My first controller experienced stick drift within months of light use. Luckily it was covered under warranty and they sent me a replacement controller relatively quickly, which I truly do appreciate.
However, the replacement controller that I received has an issue out of the box where the right controller stick gets stuck when pushed downwards. It's pretty annoying, and fairly irritating given that I expected more decent build quality for a $50 wired controller when there are much cheaper options out there, especially considering this doesn't even come with vibration functionality, etc.
Maybe there's a genuine issue with build quality or I'm unlucky. Apart from the issues I experienced, the controller is definitely pleasant to use, and a nice improvement over the joycons in docked mode. I guess it's just a matter of praying they send you a decent controller from the get-go. At least their warranty is relatively generous and it's pretty easy to fill out an application form online.
Great controller, unfortunate that I'm running into these issues however :(
I bought this as a substitute for my nephew and liked the look and feel of it so much, I decided to use it myself.
I recently bought animal crossing and decided instead of handheld, I'd just hook it up to my monitor and could freely flick between switch and my PC.
I've gotten very light use out of the controller, I'd say maybe 50 hours of gameplay and the left stock's drift is unbelievable. I push it left and my character goes right o.O I thought maybe it's just a calibration issue, so I go to calibrate the sticks and it does in fact show pushing the stick to the left causes it to go right, yet pushing it to the right is perfectly normal.
I like the look of this controller and the feel since I have considerably large hands. But 50 hours of gameplay is ludicrous. If it was a years of gameplay I'd understand but not light, casual playing for 30-50 mins not even daily. Its left me disappointed because I was initially pleased with the investment.
Looks great & is comfortable. Not bad for the price but a good chance the joystick will go. Like others my left has a mind of its on. I would recommend like others have mentioned to go for a slighty higher quality version
Feels and looks good. The triggers are buttons rather than springy triggers which may affect certain games. After a few months we noticed severe drift in the left thumbstick, not sure how to get a warranty repair.
Ich habe den Controller drei mal kaufen müssen, da an den ersten beiden Controllern Druckfehler waren (an unterschiedlichen Stellen) bzw. der Aufdruck "beschädigt" aussah, als hätte jemand zu lange an einer Stelle herumgekratzt. Auch der dritte Controller ist nicht einwandfrei bedruckt, aber da sich der "Fehler" auf der Rückseite befindet, kaum zu sehen ist und daher nicht auffällt, habe ich ihn diesmal behalten. Leider habe ich keine Fotos davon (habe nicht mitgedacht, dass das für die Rezension sinnvoll sein könnte...). Nichtsdestotrotz funktioniert er einwandfrei, ich finde es trotzdem sehr enttäuschend, dass ich ihn so oft neu bestellen musste.
