This is a really nice controller for the Nintendo Switch. The faceplates are magnetic and are very easy to switch on and off. I feel like this would be great if you want to paint and customize the faceplate of your controller. The paddles are really simpleto map and re-map. They feel natural in your hand. It's also easy to remove any paddles that you aren't using or to remove the whole paddle unit, if you aren't interested in using them. The controller has a headphone jack so you can easily hookup your headset. It also comes with a long charging cable so you can keep playing while your controller charges. The carrying case is also great. It has spots for everything that comes with the controller and seems like it will stand up to being banged around.
This controller comes with 4 thumbsticks. They are also easy to remove and replace, but the options are kind of disappointing. 3 of the 4 have the same texture, but are different heights. The 4th is a smooth, convex thumb-stick. I wish they had included other colors or textures for these thumb-sticks or that they had additional thumbstick packs that you could buy through PowerA to use with this controller.
The most glaring omission for this controller is the lack of rumble. I don't know if this is something that Nintendo isn't allowing in third-party controllers, but I don't understand why they wouldn't include it in this controller otherwise. It is also missing the NFC reader, but that isn't a big deal for me since the console has it's own reader and it's something I rarely use.
