So first off I'd like to mention that the New Harbor and the BestDealUSA nunchucks are exactly the same (which is why I'm leaving the same review on both pages). I bought 3 nunchucks from different vendors here on amazon to try and see which aftermarket one is the best, but these 2 ended up being the same. I'm still waiting on the one from UnitedIntegral, and I'll update this review if it ends up being the same too. They shipped from different locations, but they come in the exact same packaging, and behave the same.

They look great and at first glance behave exactly like an OEM nunchuck controller would. If you ever play competitively though (think brawl), this is not the nunchuck you want to use. The delta on the joystick is a little off, meaning that you either leap forward or barely move most times. This can be a nightmare for those that use tilt attacks consistently in brawl. Also, sometimes the direction will randomly flip. There have been countless times where I try to dodge left but end up dodging right.

The look and feel of them is almost exactly that of an OEM nunchuck. The joystick is a little stiff at first but I actually like that, it makes it feel new. The C and Z buttons on the back are sliiiiiightly lower quality than the OEM ones, but definitely do the job. In general, the joystick feels sturdy, but for some reason does not feel like it will last as long as the one that came with the wii.

Since about 70% of my time on the wii is spent playing brawl, I'll probably end up buying an OEM nunchuck. It's still very possible to play with this one, but the small irregularities annoy me enough to need to spend a little more. I'll let my opponents use these ones, haha.

It is not sensitive as OEM.
My kids were fighting to avoid this one when they play a game against each other.
I hope you know what I mean.

For $5 this was a great buy. My nunchucks from Nintendo finally wore out. Instead of spending the $20 to purchase a new Nintendo Brand nunchuck, I decided to give these a try.

I purchased two of these nunchucks over a month ago and have not had any major problems with them. I did have to reconnect to the wii remote once or twice but for $5 it was worth it.

I will purchase more in the future.

I compared this nunchuck with the one made officially for Wii and the feel is very similar. It works perfectly. The only thing out of the ordinary is a slight squeak when using the joystick portion on the nunchuck. So far it has not effected the performance and I don't notice the squeak while I'm playing games. Overall it's a good cheap alternative.

Junk. My 7yo got a wii U for Christmas and I picked up this nunchuck so he could play wii games as well. I got the official Nintendo wiimotes after reading bad things about knockoffs, but I decided to take my chances with this nunchuck. Actually I got 2, this one and a different knockoff. I figured that even if only 1 worked I'd still come out ahead vs the price of a Nintendo nunchuck.

Neither worked well enough to use. The other one kept disconnecting even though it was plugged in solidly. This one is marginally useable but the thumb stick doesn't function well when pushing to the right. Either it doesn't respond to input at all, or else it jerks around. Basically unusable. Going to take a shot at used nunchuck at GameStop.

After having this a while, it has the same problem the Nintendo 64 controllers had: the thumb stick starts to grind and the white powdery looking stuff can be seen at the thumb stick base. These are not the same as the high quality Nintendo OEM nunchucks, they don't last anywhere near as long and aren't quite AS accurate even brand new. I have nunchucks from 5 years ago that work perfectly still. It's a shame because the price is amazing on these, but I should've known I'd get what I paid for. The good news is that these are so cheap you can buy 10 of them and just throw them away as they wear out.

Original Review: It's as if Nintendo made it! It's accurate, it's cheap, it works. What more could I ask for? Buy it.

works great......for about a month then it just starts to fall apart. i still have it but pushing left is a problem because it is weaker now. and the skin on the control stick fell off. and that pushing left thing means that when you push all the way left the wii reads it as slightly tilting left all the time. i guess it's worth the price of 1 cent so i can't complain but the shipping and handling (6.99) just made it come back to it's original price so i don't know whether i was ripped off or not. so i don't like it. so i suppose the moral of the story is you should spend your money on name brand materials if you want to get your moneys worth even if it's just a cent.

My nephews could not figure out that they had to keep these things put up so that the cat would not chew up the cord. I know I really shouldn't care, but listening to the the younger one whine about how he couldn't play Super Mario Sonic Pac Man without a nunchuck was really getting on my nerves.

I'm not the most patient person, so in an effort to save the limited sanity I have remaining, I ordered the boys two of these, but they still can't beat me at boxing on WiiSports...

Works just as well as the original, and if the young lads ever start beating me at anything, I might have to blame it on this controller.

I bought a couple of these babies with the black color to easily tell the difference between the originals I had, the other knockoffs I had (in white) and these. Now two of my nunchuks had some problems with games like Madden and NHL Slapshot. The damn thing would always make the player go left!!!

I tried these out and lo and behold and to my amazement, they worked. Now I can skate around with Sidney Crosby and fire shots at the goaltender, and I have no problemos.

A lovely product at a fraction of the price as the originals. Such a deal!

This controller worked fine for about 6 months of very light use and then suddenly stopped working during the middle of a game with the message "Please connect nunchuck to WII remote." I plugged in my other nunchuck and the message went away so I know the problem is with the nunchuck and not the WII remote itself. The item was relatively cheap so I'm not too upset but I still wish that it had lasted longer especially considering that it did not get very much use.
