    Second/third/whatever the ad question. The text, which reads like a promo text, tells us nothing important about the controller, like, for example, does it support motion control? A real Switch Pro controller replacement absolutely needs that. Why is it different from run-of-the-mill dollar bin controllers? Why should I buy it over an, e.g. Hori controller, when I want to go off-brand (just an example, I know nothing about that controller, Hori is just a brand I know and trust)?

    This text has also been published here and here.

    @Costello what do you say about this? Why isn't that tagged as advertisement?


    EDIT:
    Here and here are two more sources with the same text. The last one at least has the common decency of tagging it "press release".

    Yeaaah...the ad-like tone, the reviews, and the fact that I can't find any information about the controller on their website is a bit strange...

    Only one who utilizes them good until the Switch Controller has been Microsoft. The 360 and xbox one placements are perfect. Which is probably why Nintendo finally went the same on their new pro controllers.

    It's a press release, not an advert. Like 90% of our front page posts it's a copy/paste text dump from a mail in our inbox.
    If it were a promo or sponsored post it would be tagged as such.

    well.. sorry but I'm a fanboy of Microsoft Joypad !
    I can't play properly with Sony's Joypad style .
    I had to buy a Nakon revolution in order to play in good condition with my PS4.

    Anyway, it sounds like a decent joypad... why not ....

    I have been using this controller. For what you pay its a decent option.

    I never use motion (untill Mario O even then not so much). So thats not a drawback for me. The confort is good. I play alot of Ps4 so their design choice is not a issue for me either. Its not AS good as the Nintendo Pro. But a good choice for the second player =).

    eBay. I got mine brand new from someone for $57 shipped. Just have to look and find someone who's selling for cheap, or make offers and see if anyone accepts.

    Looks like a decent controller. It doesn't seem to have NFC or motion controls, although I didn't expect that.
    Though I would have preferred the D-Pad to be on the bottom, as the analog stick is much more commonly used in games so it makes sense for it to be in the primary position. That's not a deal breaker though.

    The larger home button is something I wish Nintendo would have done with the official Pro Controller, because I find myself having to look down at the controller to make sure I'm not accidentally pressing the capture button, and the buttons look so similar at first glance that I have to think for a second.

    I like that the Switch is getting so many 3rd party options for low cost gamepads, and they all seem to be of decent quality as well.

    I actually wouldn't mind the turbo function. But if the build quality is that bad, it's definitely not worth it.

    Still would need a real controller for the switch though, especially if and when no more heroes comes out. #JoyConsTooTiby

    "The SN30 Pro is the worlds first, fully featured retro controller. It boasts a full button set with clickable joysticks, rumble vibration², motion controls, wireless bluetooth, rechargeable battery, home and screen shot buttons, and a USB-C connector. Not to mention a proper d-pad."
