    I wonder how effective these lawsuits are and whether they're aimed at just the high-profile companies.
    Because if not, I'd like to see some legal action for the subpar quality of two Logitech devices I bought.

    The 3D Extreme Pro Joystick is utter arse with drift only a few months in; they're still selling it in 2021, almost a decade after I bought mine.

    The M570 Wireless Trackball is another shoddy hardware they've been peddling for years without fixing when everyone including myself complain about Left Click issues.

    To this day, I haven't heard any news about these brought to court, though.
    As such, this Post can be seen as a warning not to buy those two peripherals.

    If these lawsuits do get approved, Nintendo would have to provide free fixes, replacements, and even refunds. This will also force them to use better quality components. Though, I am not sure if this is going to apply to all countries.

    Sounds fair; money is hard to come by these days and we shouldn't have to be sold shoddy hardware.

    That said, South East Asia is rarely in a position to file a formal complaint; we just end up throwing away and regretting the purchase.

    I don't expect that to change any time soon, so it is interesting to read what other regions can achieve.

    Glad I don't do portable so much with my Switch and use my SN30 Pro+ controller. The moment you use the sticks on the Joy Cons, you can already feel the anguish of your 1-year future self.

    Wow! I heard news about joy-Con drift again, again now and before.

    It's control quality issues from China factory look like don't care about problems for some or most controllers.

    Joy-Con analog sticks need to upgrade to improve quality similar like GameCube, Wii Pro controller, Wii U Pro controller, Switch Pro controller, PS2 to PS5 controllers and Xbox One controllers.

    Get Mayflash adapter to use with PlayStation 3-5 controllers, Xbox One controller, Wii remote with Wii pro controller, Wii U Pro controller and Switch Pro controller should help if we don't like Joy-Con problems due to drift.

    Hope new Nintendo Switch Pro and Switch 2 don't have drift problems for new controllers when it come to release out in near future.

    Nintendo doesn't seem interested in fixing the problem for real - at least with the current form factor. Perhaps if there's a rumored pro

    So, out of curiosity, what's the over-under on the sticks in, say, the Switch Lite compared to the ones in the Joy-Cons? Are they facing the same sort of degradation or stress issues that lead to JCD Syndrome, or is the quality of plastics in them watched more closely? I bought a Switch Lite about a year ago, the first anniversary of my owning one's sometime in March, but I'm growing a bit curious on whether I should be looking out for this being a problem.

    Hmmm, finding lots of Google reports of the Lites drifting. Sounds like they may be the same design, but since they're part of the screen, that's a tough pill to swallow if they start drifting.

    People mentioning the Pro Controller please tell me how you are using it in Handheld mode. Not tabletop. Is there a mod where I can split my Pro Controller in half and glue some rails to it?

    I am pretty sure that is a 3rd party controller

    Lol if you think that's normal you have really low standards for quality, and it's not like I've been frequently using them for 4 years straight.
