Reviews of SN30 Pro / SF30 Pro:
“Best Tech of E3 2017” – Game Informer
"Overall, as Bluetooth gamepads that effectively compete directly with the likes of Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo in terms of hardware output, it is impressive what 8Bitdo has managed here." - Forbes
"Everything just feels the way it should...the SN30 Pro is a wonderfully versatile controller that faithfully replicates the classic SNES pad while adding some welcome modern touches." - Tom's Guide
"If you’re a Switch owner, once Nintendo delivers on its all-you-can-eat classic game promises, the SN30 Pro will undoubtedly be the one controller you’ll always want to bring with you." - Gizmodo
"The best 3rd party Pro controller I've used so far" – Nintendo Life

and you dig the old school designs from the old school SNES days – these are exactly what you're looking for. This modern take on classic controller from 8Bitdo is on point." – Gamespot
"8Bitdo's wireless SNES controller is perfect for Switch retro gaming" - Engadget
"I’m left wondering how 8Bitdo is going to top itself. This really is the pinnacle of retro controllers. But considering the company’s track record, it won’t surprise me when it drops a controller that outdoes this one." - Geek

Controller reacts fast - no latency to speak of. Turns on and connects fast and reliably. Buttons feel great. And you can add some quality of life features with the extra buttons, like I have fast-forward set on my R2 trigger, so you can zoom through cut scenes or anything tedious.
Very happy with the purchase. Will be buying more 8bitdo for sure!
A good controller especially for emulation if your willing to pay the price.
The D-Pad on this feels great and accurate for games like Street Fighter and Mega Man, unlike Nintendo's Pro Controller. And with the additional two analog sticks makes this controller useful for games like Smash Bros and Zelda BOTW.
The only real downside is that it cant wake the console from sleep mode but I knew this going in so it's not a big deal to me.
Feels solid, but is slightly smaller than an original SNes controller.

Overall I'm very pleased I went with this option and saved £20 over the Pro controller. The design gives me warm reminiscence for the SNES whenever I pick it up, and it is more comfortable than the Joycons for adult hands. Packaging is neat and so far it has proven reliable.
Das Teil liegt perfekt in Hand. Perfektes D-Pad und auch sonst perfekte Haptik.
Für kleine und große Hände gleichermaßen gut geeignet.
Hatte mir dieses Jahr bereits dieses Buffalo Classic USB Gamepad bestellt um auf dem Raspberry zu zocken.
Auch dies ist ein tolles Pad, es fehlten halt nur immer die beiden Sticks und L2+R2
Die Verbindung zur Switch oder zum PC ( MAME ) wird ohne Probleme und umständliche Prozesse sofort hergestellt.
Mit dem Raspberry nimmt man die üblichen Einstellungen vor um das Gamepad zu "registrieren"...
Mit PS3 und 4 klappt es leider nicht.
Die verschiedenen Startmodis stehen auch hinten auf dem Controller.
- A + Start = MacOS Modus (3 LEDs leuchten unten beim Start)
- B + Start = Android Modus (1 LEDs leuchten unten beim Start) > ( Für Raspberry )
- Y + Start = Windows Modus (2 LEDs leuchten unten beim Start) > ( PC )
- X + Start = Nintendo Switch Modus (Die LEDs leuchten abwechselnd beim Start)
Ob der Controller im Windows-Modus auch mit der XBox verbindet, kann ich leider nicht testen da ich keine XBox habe.
Nun ist mein "Traumcontroller" also Realität geworden :)
Ganz Ehrlich! - Dieses Pad hatte ich schon vor gut 15 Jahren vor Augen... :)
Vielen, vielen Dank an 8 BitDo!!
Straight out the box, paired it up with my Nintendo Switch, and was off and running in minutes.
Like I’d read on other reviews though, it did have an initial issue. There appeared to be some lag, perhaps milliseconds, but I was missing the boost jumps on mario kart, and also noticed the rumble nearly had the house falling down around me it was that strong.
So took the advice I’d seen and went to the website and downloaded the latest firmware. Think my pad was on 1.03, there were a few in between, but I went straight to 1.23 and boom, perfect. Rumble is now spot on and no lag whatsoever.
Really pleased with my purchase.
+ build quality is good, feels nice in hands, doesn't "creak" when handled, the built in battery gives it nice weight.
+ Finally a 8BitDo controller with good d-pad!!! Other 8Bitdo pads I've tried have had somewhat crummy dpads, as they have taken up/down inputs when even gently rocking the dpad when pressing left/right.
+ On pc, the pad's Xinput mode makes the pad identify itself as microsoft xbox 360 pad, which makes it work on pretty much anything. Huge plus for that. The mode switching instructions are printed on the back label of the controller.
~ I kinda wish the pad as slightly larger to better fit my hands, but I guess the idea was to pretty much have identical feel to the old snes pad. Maybe make controllers for a bit bigger hands, please? :)
~ The pad could be slightly thicker to better utilize the L1/R1 triggers
- The supplied usb-cord is fairly short (about 50cm, I guess), so if user wants to use it wired, they most likely need a longer cable.
All things considered, this is easily one of the better pads I've tried, and so far easily the best 8Bitdo one. Recommended.
