Reviews of SN30 2.4G / SF30 2.4G:
"the SN30 feels exactly like a standard SNES controller...The buttons and D-pad all feel great...the biggest compliment I can give the SN30 is that I rarely noticed any differences from the standard SNES controller while using it." – The Verge
"8Bitdo’s SN30 Wireless Gamepad is a Perfect Controller for the SNES Classic Edition" - Geek
"there's an amazingly simple, elegantly retro solution from 8bitdo in these wireless Super Nintendo gamepads that cost just $25 apiece. I cannot suggest the 8bitdo wireless Super Nintendo controller enough." - Business Insider
"In terms of build quality, which is always a concern when it comes to third-party gamepads, the SN30 and SF30 are on par with how the classic gamepad feels that’s included with the SNES Classic." – Mobile Syrup

The only way you can tell a difference is that they start and select buttons are softer.
I have found that its a little too easy to hit a diagonal d-pad combination - but then again, i am getting old and i am not as good at snes games as i once was, but either way, this is well worth the money if you want to relax back on the couch and play some 90's nostalgia.
Do wish the paper insert gave some better instructions - took me a while to figure out that you have to hold down the start button for 5-10 seconds to turn it off

Enter the 8Bitdo wireless pads. These are great. In fact, I'll go even further and say they're just as good as the SNES ones. The look and feel is spot on and if you like your beat 'em ups, pulling off a sho-ryu-ken is every bit as easy on the 8Bitdo as it is on the original SNES ones.
In the box you'll find the actual gamepad, a dongle that plugs into the SNES Classic Mini and a USB cable for recharging the pads. Yes, that's right, these babies are fully rechargeable so no more having to hunt around for batteries and fiddle with replacing worn out cells during a game. You can even use them whilst they’re charging although they will then become wired again (to the power source).
My pads were fully charged on arrival so it was ready to go and all I had to do was plug in the dongle. You can manually sync the pad but I didn’t even have to do that, it all worked straight out of the box. The battery seems to lasts for days too, I’ve not timed it properly but I’ve used them for about an hour a day and they were still going strong after a few weeks.
The 8Bitdo are almost identical to the SNES pads. There are a few subtle differences such as the Select and Start buttons being straight rather than at an angle but that's pretty much it. Joypad feel, button travel, even the shoulder buttons are all the same as the SNES pads. Best of all though, even though the 8Bitdo pads are wireless, there is no lag or delay in controlling the action. The real test is to simply play a few of your favourite games and marvel at how the old skill instantly comes back as you remember how fantastic the original SNES pads were (never bettered since in my opinion).
Anything I don't like? Not really, the only thing I can think of is that there is no on / off switch and the power timeout is set at 15 minutes. This means that if you accidentally activate the pad, it'll remain switched on for 15 minutes (blue LED flashing furiously) trying to sync before powering off. Not a deal breaker for me and the joy of not being tethered to the console far outweighs not being able to switch off the pads.
So in short, what are you waiting for? If you have a SNES Classic Mini, you owe it to yourself and your console to get a pair of 8Bitdo pads to re-live the glorious 16-bit gaming era of the 90's when everything really was that good.
Whilst the finish (exterier materials) have a great finish the controller does rattle which is a shame. The buttons and also the PCB inside the controller rattle around with little movement. This might be a minor issue as hasn't affected my star rating, but i'm very tempted to open it up and add cushioning as it's a bit irritating and I don't want this thing to break.
Highly recommend this.
One niggle is that it seems you need to press the start button to turn the controller on, but this then sends the start button command to the console, which means you end up going into the game the menu has selected which is a bit annoying. It should turn the control on when off but not send start until subsequent presses, and seems a little bit of a design flaw.
I should note I only have 1 controller. So cannot say if you get interference issues when using two for two player as the other review mentioned.
