Now, on to the main things to say, I got Power A's wireless GameCube controller with Christmas money, and fell for it right away; however, the button layout mostly works for Smash Bros. Ultimate, since some Switch games don't give you control-change options. With this in mind, I decided to look into getting one of these when I could afford it. Day one, I played with it quite a bit, playing three maps in Hyrule Warriors Definitive Edition to test out its button latency, and control, and I can safely say that both control sticks work like a charm, the buttons feel natural to press, and even the shortcut buttons on the back help quite a bit! I currently have them set for the left and right d-pad, myself, so I can cycle through my items without stopping to use the control pad. The L, ZL, R, and ZR buttons are sorta clicky, and mildly loose, so they wiggle a bit, but they do exactly as they need to, and they feel just right to press. The home buttons are small, and plastic-y, but that's somewhat expected; they do feel nice to press, and their being right in the middle of the controller make them easy to reach!
Now for the d-pad itself. It differs from the rest of the controller, being a metal pad, for some reason; it's nice, and it's pretty, and feels surprisingly nice to use. It responds well when pressed, and I was able to use it to play Super Mario World quite well! At least, until the first castle. I noticed that diagonal presses to the up and right were hardly registering, even though diagonal down-right, and down-left worked just fine. I don't know for certain if it's this model of controller, or if it's a simple fix, but it's going to make platformer gaming more cumbersome for me. Even despite this, though, every other feature of the controller feels just right, so hopefully it won't interfere with my gaming too much.
No rumble feature and the battery life is iffy based on if you leave your switch on sleep mode or not, the controller is always trying to pair if you hit a button or control stick. Maybe take the batteries out so you don’t waste them if you’re not playing for a day or two. Most pro controllers don’t have the amiibo reader, so this wasn’t a surprise to me.
Her review is: "It's light, and I really, really like it. It works with me."
Wish we had read that it gets "approximately" 30 hours of battery life, because during the summer that goes quick. However, we didn't change the battery right when the low-battery light came on, because I like to live on the wild side, and it still hung on for a few days after that. Obviously, a controller stopping mid-game means a lot less to a 7 year old than an adult. I'd definitely recommend purchasing some rechargeable batteries with this.

Recomiendo comprar unas pilas recargables, dependiendo igual si te sirven los botones de atajo, estos pueden ser muy útiles, si no es así mejor compra un control recargable.
I had the same kind a month before that and the L and LZ buttons both stopped working.
These were both used, but definitely not used aggressively.
Not sure what to do with them,I figured being Nintendo products they'd be good quality, but they sure dont seem worth 65 bucks every month.
