I received this Controller from the Spark Reviewer Program for free in exchange for an honest review. It's a good basic controller. Light weight, buttons are smooth and the skin of controller feels comfy on my palms. A good one to have in your collection for a second player or when your wireless remotes die. The wired Nintendo switch controller is black and red. It has easy to read buttons and comes with instructions on use. It has a USB connection that plugs into the switch console. When I first received and plugged in the remote I thought it didn't work but after a little investigating you have to go to the settings and then controllers/sensors on the switch to turn on pro controller wired communication after that was done it worked well. The controller has a left and right trigger, left and right bumper, direction pad, select, TURBO, screenshot, start, X, Y, A, B, left and right stick and home buttons. There are led indicator lights so you know that you are connected. There is an instruction sheet included that clearly labels all of the different button selections. Cord length is about 7 feet I would have liked to have a little longer cord however you can use the wireless controller instead. The controller fits nicely in the hands and is more of a traditional game controller that is easier to handle than the joycon controller. My kids are happy with this wired switch controller. Only drawback is it only work with the switch connected to a TV. All around great product

A Good Basic Controller
Switch wired controller
The wired Nintendo switch controller is black and red. It has easy to read buttons and comes with instructions on use. It has a USB connection that plugs into the switch console. To use this controller you have to go through some connection steps. You will have to go to the settings and then controllers and sensors and change it to pro controller wired communication. We had a little trouble initially with this but once setup it works well. There are instructions included on how to do this. The controller has a left and right trigger, left and right bumper, direction pad, select, TURBO, screenshot, start, X, Y, A, B, left and right stick and home buttons. There are led indicator lights so you know that you are connected. There is an instruction sheet included that clearly labels all of the different button selections. Cord length is about 7 feet. Overall it works good with the switch. I would have liked to have a little longer cord however you can use the wireless controller instead. The controller fits nicely in the hands and is more of a traditional game controller that is easier to handle than the joycon controller. My son was happy with this wired switch controller. This will only work with the switch connected to a tv, we were not able to use it without it being connected to the tv.
This Ematic wired-in switch controller is great. But I want to start my review with noting one big thing. This controller is not made by Nintendo. However it is compatible with the Nintendo switch. Is extremely easy to install. Since getting are Nintendo switch for the holidays it's been nice to have an extra controller for when our friends come over and play. This controller has a double motor which will cause the remote control to vibrate during different situations depending on what game you're playing. Also includes an extremely long cord that is super nice to have when your TV is not necessarily as close as your couch. All around great product
Works as described
Good basic controller. Light weight, buttons are smooth, "skin" of controller feels comfy on palms. A good one to have in your collection for 2nd player. Good as a travel item too.
Ematic Product Review
I like the controller. It works as described. The feel and grip of the controller is nicer than I expected. It's smooth and light weight. One thing to note is to make sure Pro Wired Communication is On so that you it will connect to your docked Switch.
CONTROLLERS DO WORK...just not plug and play.
I understand why people think it doesn't work, but it does, you just have to change the settings on the system to allow wired controllers, then turn it off and on. The instructions to do so are included with the controller (included in the picture below. I am knocking off a star though because the product claims to be "plug in play". If you have to change settings to make something work, by definition it is not plug and play. Technically if you already were using wired controllers and had taken care of this setting it would of qualified as plug and play, but I think most people ended up with these controllers through initial Switch bundles, so that setting hadn't been turned on yet. Oh ya, and the controller works fine and stuff.
This controller is garbage! Got one and it didn't work. It didn't show up on the controller screen. Tried everything I could think of, but it wouldn't work. I thought it might be defective. So I returned it and they sent me another one. It didn't work either! Total crap! You get what you pay for! Thankfully though it was free when I bought a game. Glad I didn't waste any money on it! Now I'm stuck with a controller that's useless. Maybe I'll use it as a paperweight.
Don't waste you time and money
Got this for my son for his Birthday, but i wish i never did.. Just got a replacement since the first one didn't work. Tried the second one and same thing happened. Plug it in and the controller lights up for a second and then immediately dies. Don't waste you time.
Useless right out of the box
Absolutely terrible product. I purchased this item as part of a bundle with a game and it did not work right out of the box. I could not get it to connect to my switch and when we tried it on a PC, we saw all the buttons were firing at once. I went back to Walmart and ordered a free replacement hoping it was only a fluke. I received the second controller and exact same issue. Now I have 2 useless controllers.
Nice Look, Bad Connection..
I got this controller free when I purchased Zelda. It's a really nice, wired controller. It's really comfortable in my hands and feels like it's made pretty decent. I saw other reviews before I made the purchase about connection issues, and I'm also a victim of it. You have to turn wired controllers on thru the settings and pair it to your switch. It stays connected for about 10 mins before it randomly shuts off. I'll just keep it back as a last resort or for when playing multi player games, but even then I'm not sure if it'll stay on long enough. Kinda disappointed..
