I ordered two of these remote/nunchuck combo packs to supplement the two Nintendo brand Wii controllers I already had. After unwrapping them from their protective foam, I immediately had trouble discerning them from the OEM remotes. They are of the exact size and weight of the Nintendo remotes you are used to, except without the brand name. As far as their functionality goes, these remotes seem to be just as accurate as the originals, though one seems to register a tad bit too high on the pointing function; hardly an issue. Vibration and speaker quality are also decent on these remotes-- seemingly right on par with that of the Nintendo brand. The nunchuck joystick is also very tight and responsive.

One thing you'll want to keep in mind is that these remotes do not take advantage of the new MotionPlus technology, so if that is what you need, you'll need to pick up a MotionPlus attachment separately. But, if all you are looking for is a quick and inexpensive way to add more players to your Wii games, I highly recommend giving these a try.

These are absolutely incredible Wiimotes. Other than the fact that there is no Wii logo on them, there is literally no difference between these and the official Nintendo Wiimotes from what I can tell. These are very high quality and feel literally exactly like the real thing. Our Wii has had absolutely no problems recognizing them whatsoever, unlike every other third-party wiimote I've ever used.

This was one of the most satisfying purchases I've ever made online. I'm more than pleased and will be ordering more of them as soon as I can.

Edit: I've read that motion-plus doesn't work with these. Haven't tried it myself, but it's really not that big of a deal to me..especially at this price!

Seriously, if you need some Wiimotes, BUY THESE. You won't be sorry.

Both remotes seem to work great. I haven't had any problems so for the price it was a excellent purchase.
Yes, do not expect the fancy box but who needs to pay extra for a box that goes to the recycle bin.
I read several reviews before taking my decision. I diceded to take the 'rick' and payed off.

At first they worked pretty good, the controls are good but one nunchuck stopped working after a couple of days and the other one is not working very well, is probably gonna stop working any minute now. To look at it the positive way it was like getting to controllers for the price of one but the nunchucks are no good. But what can you expect for the price, I mean they are really cheap compare to the original ones.

I bought it for my son......it did not work from the go. It is in the recycling and I bought another, on Amazon still for a good price and the seller gave me no issues about returning or replacing, unlike the previous!

Just want to comment on some of the issues raised by other reviewers. Hopefully, this will help you decide if this product is for you. Here are some of the issues that was raised and my response based on my own experiences using the Remote and Nunchuck:

1. "Sometimes it is hard to sync the remote with the base station." I have used the remote for about a month now, and I did not have any issues with sync'ing. BTW, you *DO* have to do the initial sync'ing. It is not hard -- just follow the instruction in the Nintendo Wii manual. This is my experience -- your mileage may vary.
2. "Speaker on the remote is extremely loud." This is true, but may not be a bad thing. I always thought the sound from the speaker on the remote was too soft.
3. "tracking/refresh issues". This has not happen on the one that I purchased (and used for a month now). Tracking, buttons, and all controls work as well as OEM remote and nunchuck.
4. "Eats batteries, batteries last less then a week" (spelling mistakes corrected by me.) I cannot confirm this. I use rechargeable batteries. I always put in freshly charged batteries before playing. Suggestion: use **RECHARGEABLE** batteries!!

That was the pro. Here are the con:
1. No manuals. You will need to pull out your Nintendo Wii manual to do the initial sync'ing. You do have it right?
2. The plug on the nunchuck does not fit perfectly into the remote (with a click). However, it does fit snugly. It just doesn't go all the way in.

The Remote and Nunchuck Controller are not perfect, but given the price and how well they work I wound definitely buy again.

For most games, this non-OEM remote/nunchuck combo is great.

However, for some games (e.g., Donkey Kong Country Returns), the speaker on the remote is extremely loud, even when the volume is turned all the way down in the Wii remote settings.

Both the OEM and Nyko brand Wii remotes do not have this speaker volume problem.

Other than that, the controllers have been working great.

We ordered two Wii remotes, which were shipped in a timely fashion. One works. The other does not. BestDealsUSA sent us back to Amazon to resolve the problem. Amazon seems to indicate that the full order needs to be returned, but only one unit did not work, and we are using the other. The price was very good, if we got what we ordered, but the hassle is disappointing.

I am disappointed. After reading most of the review and saw that this product has 4 stars, I decided to buy 2 sets. They shipped the products to me within the next day. That was a plus, but the nunchuk doesn't work at all. The remote will work but when I plug the nunchuk in, the remote goes crazy and executes all the buttons actively, error messages pop up constantly.

Nunchuck works great no issues, but the remote won't work to turn on the wii... always have to reconnect it every time you turn on the wii. Also it doesn't work for any games or anything on the wii period. I've tried everything can't get it to work. So save your money and buy else where!!
