There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Some controllers have had a d-pad issue where when pressing a side key it would also sometimes trigger an up command as well, this is present in the early versions of the controller and the only way to really check is by going to the Switch's calibrate setting and mashing away. Fortunately my order is fine but I recommend getting this checked when you order yours (from anywhere, not just Amazon) in case you need to return it.
Bought this later as a replacement and the difference is night and day. Sticks and buttons feel great, substantial battery life.
Only complaint is that the charging cable is quite short, so don't expect to be able to charge and play unless your dock is close to you.
The buttons are massive compared to Xbox’s and Playstation’s controllers, which is not at all a negative. All buttons are nice and clicky and best of all, USB C! Nothing like supporting an open standard.
The one problem is with the D-Pad, with the “Up” input not clicking as well as the other D-Pad inputs. It’s still reading my inputs fine but it feels more squishy than clicky which is really the only negative about it
The Switch Pro controller build quality appears to be very good to excellent, charge time is quick and the play time between charges appears to be 30-40 hours!
I find controlling Mario in Super Mario Odyssey and DK in DK:TF far better with the Pro controller than the detachable Joy-Con controllers (which are great too).
Without any doubt it's a ton more comfortable than any JoyCon grip (although not as colorful unless you opt in for something like a dbrand skin). The pairing process is super easy and the controller is ready to use after a quick charge.
The biggest difference you'll notice at first is the weight - you actually feel that you're not holding a cheap controller but rather a proper, premium one. Well-balanced with sharp HD rumble and great joysticks, topped up with comfortable (z)L/(z)R buttons, this is a great upgrade for my couch gaming sessions. The grip is great too and battery-life is longer than JoyCons. All buttons are bigger, too.
It's just that d-pad that ruins it for me and makes me take off one star.
Can highly recommend for your couch sessions alongside any of your JoyCons (and grips) and I've only just played for a few hours with it.

Der hohe Preis hat mich anfangs abgeschreckt, aber der Preis auf Amazon ist im Vergleich zum Einzelhandel schon verhältnismäßig "günstig"...
Zum Produkt selbst:
Nach einer kurzen Lieferzeit habe ich den Controller voller Vorfreude entgegengenommen und konnte es kaum erwarten, Diesen auszupacken und direkt zu testen!
Ausgepackt habe ich erfreulicherweise festgestellt, dass das beigelegte Ladekabel ein Kabel vom Typ C ist, die Länge könnte zwar besser sein, aber es gibt schlimmeres, im Notfall muss man sich ein längeres Ladekabel besorgen. Hier hat Nintendo nachgebessert, im Vergleich zum Ladekabel vom 2DS, welches leider kein gängiges Format ist.
Die Haptik empfinde ich persönlich als hochwertig und sehr angenehm! Kommt zwar nicht an den Controller der One heran, aber ist eine riesengroße Verbesserung im Vergleich zur "Notlösung" mit dem Plastikhalter und den JoyCons.
Eine wirkliche Bereicherung ist auch die Größe des Controllers, welcher im Gegensatz zur "Notlösung" keine Krämpfe mehr verursacht; hier habe ich ein Bild zum Vergleich angefügt.
Die Erreichbarkeit der Sticks und Tasten ist wirklich angenehm und das Gewicht des Controllers verleiht Diesem eine gewisse Wertigkeit, was man für den stolzen Preis aber auch erwarten kann!
Das Verbinden von Controller und Konsole verlief, wie erwartet, unproblematisch!
Einstecken->Tasten anhauen -> Fertig - So, wie es eben sein sollte.
Zum Testen habe ich bisher Super Mario Odyssey und Zelda gespielt und bin wirklich begeistert!
Ich bin überzeugt davon, dass es sich lohnt hier ein paar Euro mehr in die Hand zu nehmen für das Original. Die Erfahrungen mit den Produkten von Drittherstellern habe ich persönlich nicht gemacht, aber die Erfahrungsberichte anderer haben mir gezeigt, für was ich mich entscheiden sollte.
Meine Langzeiterfahrungen werde ich nachreichen, im Hinblick auf Akkulaufzeit, Empfang etc.e
Ho deciso di acquistare il mio QUARTO Pro controller per rendere finalmente giustizia alla mia collezione. Durante le serate in compagnia è un piacere poter giocare ai propri giochi preferiti al massimo delle potenzialità.
La scatola, arrivata perfettamente protetta dal pacco Amazon, contiene un cavo USB tipo C, abbastanza diffuso finalmente anche su queste periferiche - abbandonando l'ormai obsoleto micro usb -, un libretto di istruzioni ed ovviamente il pro controller.
La forma è caratteristica, ricorda quella del controller Xbox ma penso che l'ergonomia di questo pad sia superiore. Il controller è provvisto di NFC per gli Amiibo, sensore di movimento per giochi come Splatoon 2 e una batteria capace di durare 20 ore di gioco - testata personalmente da me con gli altri 3 pad nella mia collezione. C'è anche il nuovissimo HD Rumble di Nintendo.
Acquisto consigliatissimo a chiunque cerchi il TOP su Nintendo Switch ad un prezzo veramente ottimo.
> Comes with USB Type A to Type C cable (mine was about 1.5m long)
> Long battery life
> Nice feeling controller all round, infact is one of my favourite controllers
> a good D-pad, which compared to the Joycons is very welcomed
> larger Face Buttons (compared to Joy-cons)
> no weird + and - shaped buttons (compared to Joy-cons)
> larger shoulder (L+R) buttons (compared to Joy-cons)
> analogue sticks in a way better position, especially for the right side (compared to Joy-cons)
> great to use in tabletop and docked modes
> makes the use of the "puppy-dog" controller grip with the joy-cons a good Player 2 option compared to a limited single Joy-con, or allows for a Player 3 if the Joy-cons are separated
> works great as just a Bluetooth controller for other platforms too, like on a PC (With bluetooth dongle/built-in etc), most Phones (with Bluetooth support in apps and on the phone)
> no need for AA batteries, has its own built in battery, which is a probable reason why its more expensive to a XBone Controller alone
> Weighty? Some people would see this as a Pro and some might see it as a Con
> Cable supplied may be too short for some, especially if you plan to use it's wired (NFC-less) mode when connected to a switch and enabled in Controller Options, though if you are happy using it wirelessly this won't be much of a problem with its large battery life
> Yes its is a little pricy at £50-£60 BUT, don't forget it has an NFC reader, and "HD Rumble" built in, plus it feels deluxe, and compared to an Xbox One Elite Wireless Controller, which at the time of this review, was £120 (double this!), a DualShock 4 was about £52, and a normal wireless XBone is £40 so it really isn't too bad.
> It can be charged via regular 5V USB outputs but be careful, it isn't Nintendo's fault if your USB charger/device damages the controller, best plug it into your switch if you need it charging via USB, the Switch Adapter works well for this controller too
> Could do with a Audio Jack but since not many Switch Games yet support audio chat, and seeing Nintendo seem to plan on using your mobile device (for Splatoon atm) for voice chat anyway via their app, this could be added with a USB-C add on (since it does send data via usb and not just accept charge) in the future
> After 100%'ing Mario Odyssey (999 stars etc) and using the cappy-spin flick motion control with this controller, I noticed over time, the right handle felt minorly twisted out of position, maybe that was more me since I used that move often in game but I could just hand tighten it back on, so be careful flicking it alot
> Sadly ZL and ZR on Nintendo Switch (including the Joycons) doesn't seem to support analog triggers, since it is digital so no "precise" triggers, havent seen this been much of an issue for me, but if a game requires a light trigger squeeze or a hard one (or a range), there isn't any difference with this controller
Du coup, la manette reste sur la table basse et les joycons sur la switch. Même plus besoin de les déclipser (à part pour jouer à plusieurs) ! La reconnaissance par la console est immédiate après un premier branchement en usb. Vous pouvez également réveiller la console directement depuis cette manette.
The big negative - I've only used this for less than 20 hours of an on playing Zelda. I rarely use it and I have never been rough with it, or dropped it. With the release of Super Smash Bros Ultimate . it pulled it out of then drawer to use for the first time in 5-6 months . (I normally use it handheld on my commute). The controller wouldn't charge. The unit is broken. It is too late to return.
Given the number of positive reviews, I'm clearly in the minority, but it's an expensive price for less than 20 hours gameplay.
