Comfortable, Responsible, works on RetroPie!

I originally purchased this as a substitute for the SNES model controllers that connect to my RetroPie directly since I wanted to be able to play from a longer distance.

Not only does this fulfill that request, it is exceedingly well designed. It fits well on the hands, bluetooth has been stellar, and the amount of buttons available on it is great.

I purchased 2 and I've been satisfied with the result!
