Just plug and play, awesome product
Product will disconnect from controller after a few hours of usage. When this occurs, I am unable to re-pair the controller or save my game until I reset the console. Doesn't feel good to lose hours worth of gametime due to being unable to save.
Super easy to use, very responsive,
I’m still learning on how to use this but it’s really good i can finally save games that required a memory pak with out the worry of the save becoming lost or corrupted cause of a failing battery. And the fact that i can use bluetooth controllers is great
These receivers are fantastic, and the new smoke black shell is gorgeous.
Really impressed with this product, it is very well made easy to setup, the memory PAK adds extra value and was easy to switch between Rumble PAK mode and memory when using the Official Nintendo Switch N64 controller, playing my OG N64 wirelessly was a great experience on a brand new controller, and PS5 controller.
Great product, works exactly as intended. Highly recommended.
It's easy to use and the design is very nice!
