For those considering this controller, I think it is best to firmly keep in mind what this controller was originally designed to do and judge it on those merits alone.
As someone who has decades of experience playing on original TG16/PCE hardware, I can attest that this is a good, well-built 2-button wireless controller with variable turbo buttons. The 8bitdo PCE 2.4G controller does an admirable--albeit not perfect--job of replicating the style and feel of the original wired controllers. It has a lighter feel, and the four-way directional isn't as tight as the original 2-button Duo, the NEC Avenue Pad 3, or the NEC Avenue Pad 6. The trade off is a great wireless connection (with less than 7.6 ms latency) that charges fast and gets around 15 hours of playtime each charge. If you elect to play with it wired via USB, the input latency drops to 1 ms. Furthermore, contrary to original reports, it can be made to work on a PC in addition to the Mini and the Switch. Once you add the ability to manually increase or reduce the turbo button feature (hold Select + II + I buttons for 5 secs), this controller does an excellent job of doing exactly what it was designed to do:
Provide a quality wireless two-button game play experience while reasonably replicating the look and feel of an original PCE/TG16 controller.
That is what you can safely expect. Much of the negative feedback featured in the review sections of all three controller styles boils down to unreasonable expectations. Please take those comments with a grain of salt. It's like intentionally buying an apple and then later complaining that its not an orange. This is a niche controller made for a niche market. If the way I describe it sounds good to you, then you will very likely enjoy it.
