Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not working for pc. Upon pairing via Bluetooth, the cursor begins to drift. Getting into steam is impossible while the controller is freaking out. Buttons also do not respond as they should, and open up windows magnifier, virtual keyboard and other windows. It works alright on switch, which would be fine if I purchased it to play on switch. I bought it because official pro controllers are supported by steam. Very disappointing for a product "officially licensed by Nintendo". Support documents also seem to be lacking and a firmware or driver download don't seem to be available

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome controller I much prefer this controller to the standard switch controllers. It feels good to hold, and my wrist/hands don’t get tired using it. The light up part is a pleasant bonus that I enjoy. I’m a fan of LED lighting and the fact that I can change the color is super fun. The only thing that I would change is the back plate- I’m not sure what feature it provides and the movement is distracting. Thankfully it is removable and is still aesthetically pleasing and you don’t lose any functionality when it is taken off. Pretty solid product, and I’m going to buy more so my friends have the option to enjoy the controller themselves.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not stay connected :( I bought this about a week ago and it worked one day, everyday after that it only stays connected for 10 seconds max and then disconnects and goes into a loop of trying to connect. I want to love this controller, I've always wanted one, but I can not recommend a product that doesn't work. I've tried several trouble shooting methods to no avail. The time I used it was amazing, but considering the fact that it doesn't even work anymore forces me to return this product. Hopefully this doesn't happen to many more people

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best wireless remote My son says this remote is outstanding! First off, it was easy to configure to the nintendo switch. The lights are easy to turn on. You can either choose one solid continuous color to glow or all multiple colors flashing one after the other. my son chose the múltiple colors. The battery lasts a very long time and it comes with a usb charger to charge it if needed. This is a great addition to our home! All of the kids wanted to take turns using it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I was so excited but... I bought this today and I was so hyped! It's such a cool looking controller and I was so ready to make it light up my favorite colors. But then I got home and tried syncing the controller. It wouldn't at all. I watched the videos and did exactly as they said. I charged it and it was glowing and fine. When I pressed the sync button, nothing happened. I plugged it in and tried again. Nothing happened. It refused to sync no matter what I tried. It just would not connect. And yes, my switch is up to date, and the Pro Controller Wired Communication was turned on when I tried with the wire. NOTHING WAS WORKING. And there's no help anywhere to be found on the internet, so I'm gonna try and return this thing to the store I bought it from. Save yourself the frustration and the $50 and don't buy this controller.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks Cheap, but Feels Great Was looking for a good wireless controller for my Switch Lite, and couldn't spare the cash for the Pro Wireless. I picked up one of these at a local GameStop on sale and was surprised at the build quality of the Afterglow. There is zero plastic flex in the controller, the buttons feel great, especially the triggers and the extra paddles on the back. Holds up even to frustrating Smash battles and Monster Hunter fights. Pairs quickly and without problems, and the battery life has never been a problem yet, and the LEDs are fun to play with, surprisingly. My only complaint is the smooth plastic becomes hard to grip without breaks to wipe down the controller and dry your hands.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost perfect Switch Pro substitute I have been using this since Christmas, I was very impressed with the build quality and casing, the 90s transparent skeleton and interactive light system is unlike anything out there! Overall a solid controller with comfortable button placements, clicky analog sticks with great grip (rivalling those of Nintendo's official controllers!) the only thing cutting its success short is the lack of a few features such as a USB-C charging port, battery indicator within the switch system as well as calibration and button mapping settings although the presence of the additional back shoulder buttons makes up for it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delivers A Pro Controller Level of Quality As I've been someone who has used a Pro Controller almost exclusively since Day 1, I'm intimately aware of everything to do with its overall feel so it makes me very picky when I pick up anything else. The Afterglow Wireless Deluxe Controller is really the first third party wireless controller I've ever picked up that in any way feels comparable. Its weight, dimensions, and general essence make moving between the two about as seamless as you could hope, though there are minor differences. First, the finish on the controller's surface is more clearly plastic and in tactile terms feels polished versus the more matte feel of the Pro. Second, the ridge on the dual joysticks is raised a bit more, which takes a little getting used to but one could argue may be helpful in keeping it from slipping during intense play. Last, the layout of the home, screen capture, +, and - buttons is a bit different and higher... though that doesn't really have any negative impact. The only feature this controller lacks is rumble, but considering it's a bit cheaper that feels like a more than fair concession. In exchange you also get the LED lighting which not everyone may think it a plus but personally my wife actually loves. The fact that I could tweak it to glow purple makes her happy and if you had more than one in the house it would make it easy to know whose is whose. Gyro controls not only work, but moving between the two controllers in games that make use of them I couldn't really detect any difference in performance between them. The added triggers on the back of the controller aren't something I found helpful (I found them too easily to trip accidentally) but since you can remove the plate for them very easily it's a nice option to have. If the lack of a rumble feature isn't a dealbreaker I'd absolutely recommend this controller to anyone. If this would be your first pro-style controller I'd be even more enthusiastic in that since its price is lower and most of my observations wouldn't even apply since you wouldn't know any better. It feels surprisingly good to hold and play with, the LED lighting is fun and distinctive, and this is absolutely a terrific product without question.
