Great-looking adapter; fits really well. Very useful.
I had some initial teething problems getting this dongle to pair with my controller but once it got going it has been consistently fabulous. Really modernises the control of the GameCube, I'm absolutely thrilled. A big step above the wavebird and the only thing that could improve this is if there was a solid GameCube style wireless controller I could pair to it.
Looks great, lets you use BT controllers on the GameCube with minimal fuss, what more could you want?
This is my second BlueRetro adapter after the N64 version I bought previously, these are just great additions to have. This is actually much smaller than I expected from the pictures, but case work is excellent quality.
