Pros: Similar design to the Xbox controller so it doesn't strain your hand after long hours. The matte/rubber finish helps with grip. Overall it's very comfortable.
Cons: If you're too far away than the connection to the Wii console may drop. I've noticed this on official Nintendo controllers too (not as much tho), so it may be a problem with the entire implementation not just this controller. This can (and has been) a problem if you play fast pace games like Super Smash or even Mario Kart. Good thing you can fix the issue by moving closer or simply point your controller in the direction of the console.
Other Thoughts: Only thing that keeps this thing from being 5 star/egg review is the intermittent connection issue. Also worth noteing, the controller is smaller than it appears on the picture. So for people with large hands please keep track of the 15/30 day return window. Other than that I'm completely satisfied with this product. It's my go to controller after the Wii U gamepad.

Pros: I didn't but this at new egg, but I feel that I should leave a review here.
Cons: Dead after 3 months, the left stick always getting stuck and thinking that im smashing it left when im not even touching the controller. the "a", and "b" buttons keep getting stuck and the triggers rarely respond. I wasn't even using it that hard, just some light SMB 3D Land, some Mario Kart, and some New SMB U. no fighting games, and no shooters.
I expected this controller to last for years, but its failed.
oh and the manufacture warranty is gone after 3 months, so it looks like it was designed to fail quickly.
Other Thoughts: don't bother, just buy a official controller.

Pros: It's a GCN controller, simple as that! The L and R buttons are ZL and ZR since it's configured as a classic controller. L and R are now where Z was on the gamecube (with L being like a Z button on the left side). There's also now a select button and home button!
Cons: The L and R buttons click loudly, unlike the Z button that they replace from the original GCN controller. Also, since it is a Classic Controller, the two joysticks do not push in as buttons, so some games such as Call of Duty took some getting used to. Also because of it registering as a CC, the triggers aren't analog like the original GCN. These are just heads-ups and are no big deal, so no eggs off!
Other Thoughts: This controller is just like the GCN controller! It works perfectly as GCN in Super Smash Bros. Brawl! This is probably the best option for Smash Bros when it releases.
