Not compatible with iOS

This controller is not compatible with iOS devices like it claims on the box and in the product description. Returning. Consider a Steelseries Stratus

  • from Toronto, ON

broken already

R button is already jammed The joy stick is not very stable; you can only really jump from each point of the "octagon"

Used for RetroPi - Works Great

I use this with some gaming emulators loaded on a raspberry pi and it works great. Had some initial setup issues but they were more related to the software I'm using. Controller feels very good and has no notiicable lag on bluetooth (if you're getting lag, it's likely your TV settings).

Excellent Multi-Platform Controller, incl Nintendo Switch

Bought this as an alternative to buying expensive Nintendo Switch controllers. After initial firmware upgrade, works perfectly for Mario Kart on Switch! Syncs up just like official controllers. Bluetooth connectivity to Windows 10 laptop just as easy. Only issue I had was USB connectivity troubles with Windows laptop not recognizing device via USB, Mac laptop no issues experienced. Button mapping apps available for Android and Windows, Mac. Very happy. A capable and cheaper alternative to buying multiple controllers for multiple platforms. Comfortable and natural feel/grip. Highly Recommended

NES BT controller

Really liked the idea of this controller and I picked it up to play games on my phone so I wouldn't have to use the touchscreen. Let's just say I expected a lot more from a 60.00 after tax purchase. After about less than a week one of the buttons was pushed in and I couldn't use it anymore, and I'm generally pretty cautious when it comes to being gentle with electronics. It also decided to move my character in the game places I wasn't going. *Going left when I was wanting to go right* Gunna give it one more try from an exchange so hopefully it works. Other than all that it's really comfortable to use and it's small and portable which I really liked.

Perfect Mix of Nostalgia and New

Pros: - Upgradeable firmware - 5 different controller modes - Compact, but comfortable to use - Available smartphone clip-holder(sold separately) - Available retro reciever(s) for NES/SNES Cons: - Can't reprogram/disable lights or buttons Overall: An excellent Bluetooth controller for PC/Console and mobile gaming

  • from Laval

can be better

I order this on a Saturday and it arrived on Monday. The setup process is confusing, the pad look great but is too small to hold comfortably in your hand. the analog sticks are small and have a dead zone, the D pad is small and not accurate, I press up or down and some times it goes to the side or I press left or right and it goes up and the red buttons get stuck if you press too hard. all in all there are cheaper and better if you just look around, I'm returning for a refund

8Bitdo NES30 Pro Bluetooth Gamepad Controller

Purchased for my son for Christmas. Arrived in a timely manner. Son is over the moon with the quality and versatility of the unit! From ordering to use, this has been a pleasant experience. Thank you Best Buy!

  • from Montréal, QC

Good controller

Good controller forgot how small nes controllers were back in the day used to bigger controllers now like ps4 but still great and responsive with retropie

  • from Calgary

Limited iOS compatibility unless jailbroken

Don't buy this controller for an iOS device unless you're device is jail broken. If it isn't, the game compatibility is very limited. This is not a MFI controller. Returning for a Stratus.

  • from Halifax, NS

Great controller

I bought two to use with Retropie. It took a few minutes to set them up but since then they've performed admirably. The battery lasts a long time, they feel adequately sturdy and responsive. The thumbsticks are a little tetchy as they are tiny and have a short travel, but it doesn't bother me as I only need them for a few games.

  • from Sydney, NS

Great product!

Great product. Works flawlessly with my Galaxy S7.

  • from Surrey, BC

Great product! Works like a charm on TSW

This product is great for games that can take this game pad's buttons. It worked for me on The Secret World. Resembles the NES and SNES controller at once. Pretty nifty.

  • from Toronto, ON
