Having owned and sold this, i just found its too small. Not having those hand grips like most controllers makes it much less comfortable over a longer gaming session especially. I highly recommend something larger for most people. Or for kids' hands?

Could not agree more. Also owned and sold these for the same reason. The R and L buttons feel like they should be just single R and L rather than split into 2 buttons.

Besides the Size issue. How is it to use with a Switch? Looking to replace my kids Drifting controllers and the price is right @ $40.

I own an SN30 Pro and SN30 Pro+, use both with my switch and they work great. Only drawback is the won't wake the Switch from sleep. I'd be inclined to recommend the SN30 Pro over the N30 Pro2, just because the shoulder button placement is much better, though it is a bit bigger. It does occasionally go on sale for closer to this $40 though it's $50 right now.

Not if you want to use it with a Switch, or use it with a PC without using custom drivers (I know Steam has drives but some programs don't place nice with them, primarily Gamepass gives me issues). That said, for most people, I'd recommend the SN30 Pro+ over this and it's not close.

I got 2 of them may 2020 for $20 each from best buy. Obviously no time machine. I got them in lieu of getting another set of switch controllers at $100/pair and even smaller footprint. For my daughter's and nieces to play Mario Kart etc it's more than fine. For adult it's too small for serious game time.

Or if you really don't wanna do it yourself check Kijiji. I found someone in my area that fixed some worn out joycon locks and one stick, I forget the exact prices but it wasn't bad like $5 each for locks and I think he charged me $10 for the stick.

Thanks for advice, bought this for my 5 year old to be 2nd player on our android gaming. Never had an Xbox, but I prefer their controllers: just a little too small tho
