I was worried that when I plug the adapter in it would go crazy on me or the turbo light would not turn off like some people said but if you follow the directions it works perfect. The adapter I got had a label on it saying that it was the new version that supports wii remote plus, maybe that's why I did not have any problems. First you turn on a already synced wii remote, then plug the gamecube controller into the adapter and finally connect the adapter into the wii remote like you would a nunchuck...viola now your gamecube controller is recognized like a classic controller. No controller freaking out, no random presses no turbo light problems. Btw the gamecube controller fits snug in the adapter not loose not all.
Now the main thing everybody wants to know is does it have lag. Honestly I'm a casual smash player and I don't notice any lag or delays. In my honest opinion using this adapter with the gamecube controller feels and responds just like a classic controller or pro controller would. Hardcore smash players might feel otherwise but even then I don't think the majority of gamers would find a issue with this adapter.
The best part is I can use the gamecube controller for other games like virtual console games and even some N64 games on Wii mode that use the classic controller. I can easily recommend this product even if the official adapter comes back in stock because that adapter only works with one game, this one works with a lot more.
One of the downsides was no longer being able to play Super Smash Bros. Brawl with a GameCube controller; it's always felt awkward to me to use a Classic Controller for this game, having played so many years of Melee.
This adapter fixes that problem and far as I can tell is highly responsive with no lag or cutting out even with my Japanese import white GameCube controller with a six-foot cord. WaveBirds work great as well, so long as nothing is blocking the path from the controller to the receiver. (WaveBirds had this problem even on the GameCube itself.)
The only slight annoyance is the function of the Start button: pressing it once acts as the Select (-) button on a Classic Controller, so you have to rapidly press it twice to have it actually work as a Start (+) button. It's not a huge problem, and it makes sense to do it this way if you intend to use it for any Virtual Console games that have an important in-game use for Select--like Super Metroid, for example (Select to switch weapons)--but it can feel a little tedious when all you wanna do is choose a game mode or pause the game and needing to press it twice.
Apparently this adapter has troubles with Wii MotionPlus remotes. I've not tested it with one, but just passing that along.
I own two of these, ordered six months apart, and both were sold by TOTALCONSOLE (fulfilled by Amazon) as they usually have the lowest price. No problems where that's concerned. Now I can Brawl with a friend.
Save the cardboard back of the packaging so you have the instructions on how the Start button and Turbo functionality work.
