    It was working fine when I get it but not even 2 months later it developed an analog stick drifting problem, tried everything but couldn’t fix it. I barely used it, it was a waste of time and money

    The left analog stick is drifting BAD. I have barely used this controller and it’s all messed up. When going into the calibration it shows it’s moving all over.

    If you’re looking for a switch controller to use whilst travelling do not go for this one, it uses a standard USB connection (not a USB-C connection on the bottom of the switch unit) and therefore will only work when the switch is in the dock, which is not made particularly clear on the listing/packaging

    Love this controller it has a nice textured grip so even if your palms get sweaty, or your knees get weak, arms get heavy you’ll be able to hang on to these through all that! It is a solid alternative to the much more expensive wireless. The cord length is really long enough to reach the couch and still be able to play comfortablely.

    Cette manette est plutôt bien réussi, attention cependant car cette manette n’est pas une nintendo officiel, elle possède juste la licence mais de toute façon celà est décrit dans la presentation, le câble fais 3m donc si vous n’êtes pas trop loin de votre TV celà devrait suffire amplement.
    Côté finition la manette n’est pas d’une qualité incroyable mais amplement suffisant, le plaisir de jouer sur switch est bien plus agréable que sur les joycon car les boutons sont plus gros et l’ergonomie bien plus adapté. Les boutons sont assez bruyant mais personnellement cela ne me dérange pas trop.

    Cependant lors de la réception de ma première manette, celle-ci c’est mise à dysfonctionner au bout d’une semaine, ce qui m’a forcé à demandé un échange contre une nouvelle manette et depuis je n’ai plus aucun problèmes.
    La manette ne possède pas de vibration.

    Pour résumer si vous voulez une manette efficace, à bon prix alors n’hésitez pas, celle-ci est faite pour vous.
    Cependant si vous voulez une manette avec une bonne finition, possédant des vibrations et des matériaux de meilleurs qualités alors celle-ci ne vous conviendra sûrement pas.

    N’hésitez pas à dire si ce commentaire vous a été utile.

    I cannot, for the life of me, understand why this wasn’t made as wireless. It is their best Animal Crossing scheme they’ve made.

    I promise you, this would be a bestseller if it wasn’t wired. As an artist and product designer, I am angry that you picked VERY unattractive colors for your wireless controllers but then created this magnificent, cute and wonderful theme for… a wired controller? It should be a criminal offense.

    Please make this wireless. Thanks.

    I had this controller for less than a month of mild use and the analogs went wonky on me. They return to a neutral position automatically while holding them diagonal. Like the Horipad it has no rumble and can’t scan amiibos. Also, the shoulder buttons are not analog. One thing that’s nice is the device has a removable wire and opening it up, i find it is quite easy to make simple repairs. Basically, it’s smaller and less comfortable than the Hori and the build is lower tech and quality but it’s easier to repair and comes with a 2 year warranty which is useless because power A’s customer service is useless. I wish somebody would make a high quality wired switch controller. This aint it.

    Steam just added support for the Switch controller and, lo and behold, my trusty Xbox 360 controller started acting up. This controller has a low price, it should work, why not give it a shot? There are bound to be people looking for info on how this controller works with the PC after support was added and I wasn’t able to find any so here’s that review.

    The best thing about this controller is the cable length, which I had to coil up multiple times on my desk to keep it from sitting on top of literally everything, but that’s a good thing! I could easily have sat across the room from my screen and had cable to spare. Unfortunately it was the only good thing I came across with this controller.

    The first thing I noticed was how uncomfortable it is. The back of the controller isn’t deep enough to allow your hands to rest around the grips so I was always moving my fingers to find a comfortable position which I was never able to find. The angles of the grips are also a little wrong as well, and the slight angle it put my hands at relative to my forearm led to some discomfort after a while that was very similar to having your keyboard at the wrong position. Finally, it weighs almost nothing by controller standards and is somewhat top-heavy. More of a personal preference, but it feels very cheap as it is.

    The other thing I noticed immediately was that the triggers are not an analog input. They’re digital buttons. This can cause an issue for those who may be playing racing games or anything that would involve driving cars, flying aircraft, etc. Some may not mind this, but I know some will so I’ve mentioned it.

    As for its functionality, I saw multiple outlets say that I could plug this controller into my PC, Steam would say “Oh hey a controller!” and it would work just fine. That could not have been farther from the truth. Steam did, in fact, recognize the controller but I had to manually enable the setting for it (no biggie) and switching the button assignments to the more typical “Xbox-style” layout was simple. I fired up one game only to find that the triggers had no function, the right stick would only look up and down and the left stick would only strafe left and right. That’s fine, teething pains are normal, just remap and move on. Remapping didn’t fix the triggers, and restarting the game reset the control configuration. Next was Rocket League! Menus worked great, the buttons worked well, but the triggers didn’t work at all. Went into the mappings and made sure they were assigned properly, which they were, but nothing happened. At this point I was 2-for-2 on the failure front and a couple of hours into fiddling with it.

    For the PC gamer looking for a controller, this is not going to be your best bet. It looks cool and it’s inexpensive, but that’s where you need to take a step back and ask do you want “cool looking” or something that was designed to work with a PC in the first place. I’m sure it works quite well with the Switch, and there’s the possibility that all my issues were on Steam’s end, but as of writing this controller is not the best option on the market today.

    Cuando comencé a usar el control casi no noté el problema pero con el paso del tiempo jugando Smash me he dado cuenta que el stick no responde de manera correcta, en la selección de personajes lo muevo hacia la derecha y se mueve en diagonal, hacia el lado izquierdo va a velocidad normal pero al lado derecho se mueve mas lento. Incluso en smash cuando quiero correr hacia una dirección regularmente mi pj siempre da un salto porque detecta un movimiento en diagonal hacia arriba.

    Si pretenden comprar este control recomiendo que verifiquen la correcta funcionalidad del Stick dentro del tiempo de garantía / devoluciones.

    Characters don’t stop moving when I am not moving the joystick. When going into inventory selection window it is hard to get it to stay on what you want to select. Update. I discovered it was my console not working properly so I don’t think it was the joystick however I haven’t used it since repair.

    Beautiful controller. My only issue is mine came with bubbles under the design. It’s ok, just a little annoying to see on such a pretty controller.

    Out of all the Animal Crossing controller designs, I think this is by far the prettiest and is much cheaper than the rest. I only wanted it for casual use and so invested in a Amazon USB to USBC adapter which allows it to work perfectly on my Switch Lite (so far). Although it is a great design and a lovely colour, it is very light weight and almost cheap feeling…it isn’t the comfiest to hold. I still feel it is an absolute bargain and a perfect piece for AC fans.

    To start, i want to say that I like the design, but considering pictures exist i didn’t factor in the physical appear of the design because you can judge that for yourself.(I love it).

    To start, when I had ordered the controller it came with off-centre analog stick(or stick drag as it’s usually called). Naturally I open it up(don’t do this, even if PowerA won’t replace it, Amazon would give you refund. Opening it will likely cause PowerA to refuse to fix or send a new one. Afterall they wouldnt know if it actually came broken or you broke it when you opened it) and find it to be one of the easiest disassembly and reassembly processes ever. And it turns out the sticks are easily replaceable and PowerA even sells replacements. So if you ever get those worn joysticks you can just buy new caps instead of a whole new controller! I fixed the problem very easily. I won’t hurt the rating based on coming defective because, well, my sample size is one and that’d be idiotic.

    Beautiful functional and suprisingly quality for $25. I was expect cheap feeling analogs and buttons but it actually has a premium feel. The only thing that doesn’t feel premium is the dpad. However it is properly design as to disallow you from hitting opposite buttons(left+right), which is nice since the pro controller doesn’t.

    There are plenty of reviews that talk about the life on the controller. If I have problems with that, I’ll update this review. I’ll also talk about how easy or impossible the problems are to repair yourself. If there’s no edits are this, you know the controller worked well into its life for me!
