    Found this little gem while browsing Youtube, normally wouldn't have even looked into getting a 3rd-party controller for the Switch since there's been only controllers with basic input support. No gyro, rumble, or wireless connectivity,

    Oh but this, ho ho. This has the good stuff( except NFC support but meh it's cool ), gyro support, Rumble( non-HD ), and it's wireless. So I was on board, but then I thought that with all the features it's probably also in the expensive range.

    So I looked up the price................................................$27............*instant buy* Been using it for a good two weeks and haven't had any issues. It's been honestly a great experience for such a cheap price! ^_^

    Might buy for a cheap player 2, but it's really not for me without ALL the features the pro can offer.

    Are you on Switch firmware 5.x.x?
    Or are you using a lower firmware version e.g. 4.1.0?

    I was also interested in buying a similar controller (JYS), and found this info after doing a bit of "pre-buying" research:
    https://www.reddit.com/r/NintendoSw...unofficial_controllers_no_longer_work_due_to/

    Seems a lot of these stopped working with the 5.0.0 update, BUT some of the manufacturers have released "fixes" which are firmware you can flash the controller with. Might be useful info to know for anyone wanting to buy one of these.

    Wouldn't trust anything functional from Wish, their cheap and that's how most of their stuff is, especially there 'graphics cards' and flash drives which are usually crapo.

    Honestly I'm on the latest update and have had no issues with mine. Haven't needed to flash it with any updates since there weren't any problems :)
