Battery life could be better. Did not include the ring stander like advertised. Bluetooth and usb means I can use it with my chromebook, pc, android phone, and retropie setup. I notice a little input lag over bluetooth. not terrible but sometimes noticeable

Amazing controller

Even just opening the box for the first time, I knew I was in for something special, didn't feel like a cheap box. Well packed and feels special. Controller was super easy to sync with my phone and start playing with, all the buttons feel great. solid feeling controller as well. Includes charge cable and a keychain.

An awesome controller.

Purchased two of these Snes 8bitdo bluetooth controllers. Paired perfectly with my desktop PC as well my PikTV Android box. These are some sweet controllers that are a solid build quality, light in hand but not cheap feeling, resemble the originals almost perfectly. Buttons are responsive, they play great with 16bit games. Includes USB power charging cable, very quick charging, only twenty minutes or so, seems to last long time I haven't charged for a few days so far and not red light indicator turned on yet. Easy to understand light indicators for charging, Bluetooth, pairing etc. Packaging is stylish, you can tell the company cares about the product and put effort into the style and feel. If I was forced to find a con I would repeat what others have said that the d-pad is slightly, stiff or has drag, barely noticeable and does not affect game play you get used to it. Nothing beats laying back on couch cordless bathing in old school nostalgia. Good purchase. One last thing, I compared both the Snes and the Nes controller in store in hand. The Nes has joysticks but the L and R tops buttons are just not easy to press since the controller is rather small, you have to really pull back your fingers in an awkward position to hit them so I choose the Snes since the feel in hand is just like the original and that's what I was gong for.

Constantly crashes

it just crashes whenever I try to use it

Incorrect product. This is the SNES30, not the SNES30 Pro

BestBuy needs to learn to advertise their product properly. This is not the SNES30 Pro. The SNES30 Pro has Dual Analogue. This is just a regular SNES30.

Love it

I've owned one for about a year now and I absolutely love it. It's an exceptionally solid design -- looks, feels, and operates just like the original. The only downsides were that the instructions that came with mine were not only horribly written, but also just plain wrong, and the price is a little bit high considering you're somewhat limited in what systems you can use it with (due to limited number of buttons). I recommend upgrading the firmware, and looking for instructions online. Definitely worth it -- I'm planning to buy another one.

Great for casual playing

the only downside to this controller is input lag. it will be fine in most games played casually tho.

  • from Regina, SK

Well built

Great blue tooth controller. Took some trial and error to get it working with Retropie, but have had no issues after the initial setup. The instructions that come with it are not too helpful, but there is lots of information online.

  • from Toronto, ON


Feels just like the original and plays great. Very responsive and connects easily and immediately.I love it!

  • from Calgary, AB

Great controller, well packaged

I was VERY impressed once I got this controller in my hands. It feels almost exactly like an SNES and has a very polished build. I was also impressed by the very professional way it was packaged. It was like I was opening an Apple product. Everything was nicely laid out and of a very high quality. The controller will connect to almost any bluetooth device you can imagine (Windows, Android, iOS, Linux) and worked with RetroPie out of the box. All in all this was a great purchase.

  • from Edmonton, AB

Retro feel, modern convenience

Feels authentic to the SNES classic. Buttons and D-pad all have the exact same travel and feel as the original. Works absolutely great with RetroPie, fast charge time and 9+ hours of game play per charge. Highly recommended, quality product. The included retro keychain is a nice bonus too.

  • from Saskatoon

Fantastic value

This controller absolutely lived up to all my expectations. Feels like the original and was so easy to set up. Opening the box was also a treat, the developer clearly cared about the product. My fiance and I haven't put down the controller or lost the smiles from our faces since we got it. Going to get a second tomorrow.

  • from Coquitlam

Must buy!

I m using it for my raspberry Pi 3 for some Super Nes retro gaming.... Took sometimes to get it works but once it does.... It is perfect!!!! Good hand feeling also feel exactly like the old Nes controllers. It is wireless!!!!!!

Couldn't be happier with it. Just like a Brand new Controller for the SNES but more. Using it on my PC.

  • from Toronto, ON

Great Buy!

I've had mine for about 2-3 weeks now. I have it connected to an Android TV Box I built out of a Mini-PC. It works well with an Open Source version of Android Marshmallow. If it works with that it will work with anything. The latency is imperceptible, ie how long it takes button presses to register on the console. They seem to last for ever on short charges. Identical to the real thing. I came here to buy 2 more and I saw the reviews and figured I'd share.

  • from Ottawa, ON

Better Than the Original?

This is quite possibly better than the original. The design and feel of the controller is an exact duplicate from that of the SNES. The exception? It is wireless! I purchased the controller for playing emulated games for the NES, SNES and Gameboy Advance. You cannot go wrong with this controller!

  • from Calgary, AB

Feels solid

The box, the cable, the key chain, and specially the controller all looks amazing. Worth every penny.

  • from Toronto, ON

Classic fun

Feels and responds well, great for playing emulated games on an Android tablet.

  • from Dartmouth, NS

Broken right out of the box!

Wouldn't connect to anything through bluetooth, must have had a bad radio. Too bad, as the design was solid.

  • from Vancouver, BC

very good product

Set me back in the days when I was playing games on my Super Nintendo. Very good quality, works like a charm.
