Barely worked at first, then died shortly after
on January 28, 2016
This controller, just as the Black one I purchased (I bought 2 at one time; such foolishness), broke within a week.
When I got this controller, most of the buttons worked, but I knew I couldn't use it in competitive scenarios such as Super Smash Bros. games, or any action games for that matter. There was a 'funkiness' to the control stick (it was much stiffer than an official Nintendo brand N64 controller), and some buttons wouldn't register unless you pressed on them extremely hard. It only went downhill from here.
After ONE WEEKEND, the controller would hardly function. It was as if it was only sending input every now and then, instead of a continuous stream of data. For example, holding the joystick right in a Super Smash Bros. fight would make the character inch to the right at seemingly random times, by a very small amount of distance each time. Rendered useless.
Like I said, the same exact thing happened to my Black controller. Worked enough to call it 'usable' when it arrived, but not enough to use it in action games of any sort. After one weekend, the controller 'gave up', only sending input whenever it felt like it, once every couple of seconds or so. Or maybe 3 times a second if I was lucky.
These controllers are worthless unless you want some extra plastic and a new soldering project laying around.
