Looks like the real thing, performs like one -- it is the original!
on February 9, 2013
Just received my controller -- it came in a Nintendo marked box, included a skin, and had all the right markings of the original. I have little doubt that this is NOT a knock-off. If it is, well you can't tell the difference.
But Heads Up: I did not know the proper sync procedure when I tried to get it to work. I pressed the red button below the batteries and watched it blink to no avail. After some frustration, I looked up the problem and learned there is more to re-syncing a Wii controller, or adding a new one than that.
There are TWO sync buttons which must be pressed in sequence. The first is the one in the battery compartment. The second is inside the door of the SD card latch.
Press the battery one first, note the Wii beginning to blink -- then press the one in the SD card compartment. That was the trick.
Tested the remote and played a couple of bowling games with no difference in control or responsiveness than the original had (which I had managed to kill by messing with a cheap recharger).
