Hi,

i ordered one of these rings from ali and it arrived yesterday. It didn't work at first, but after a small repair it worked (a cable slipped out, see picture).

I had mine for about a week, it works fine 95% of the time, sometimes theres a reading error, I guess the connection between joycon and ringcon is more error prone on the 3rd party ringcon. Another small issue is that sometimes the ringcon in the game gets desynchronized with the real one, so if I'm just holding the ringcon the game thinks its pressed, only if I strech the ringcon outwards it appears not pressed. I fix that by going to the home menu for a second, then the game seems to recalibrate its baseline and its okay again. All in all its very usable, for the price at least. It has its quirks but there are easy ways around it. If it would be first party I would be disappointed, but for 25-30$ there is little to complain about imho.

Bought the Chinese control ring. After two weeks it is already broken. It doesn't recognize input strech correctly and loses tracking forcing me to disconnect and reconnect the joycon every 5 steps.
It has also lost it's round shape. It's more like an oval but only for an half on the right side.
It's basically un-playable
I will ask for a refund. Hope to have one.

Had the same question a while ago and also found feedback that the cheap knock-offs are just not as good as the original one, like user LowScore said, it's bending out of shape. Ended up buying the original bundle for like 65€.

I'm definetely going to buy the original (when the refund, if any, arrives) because the software is worth the money but I'm really curious to check what kind of differences there are between the oirginal one and the chinese. It's super annoying because the chinese one is well made, it's solid; it seems only lacking the Nintendo logo. Unfortunately, at least in my case, is dying for unknow reasons.

    I rather enjoy a life of taking it easy. I haven't reached that life yet though.
