    "Throwback to my childhood! The controller feels just like the original and I appreciate that it's battery-driven rather than connected simply by wire. I got this as a birthday gift and I couldn't stop laughing at how great the idea was. If you played the SNES when you were younger I'd recommend it."

    "If I were looking for the best wireless-USB game controllers for Mac this recommendation would not satisfy those conditions at all. While it is a controller for a MAC it is specifically for a Mini Super SNES Classic Edition&Mini NES Classic Edition not for just regular gaming use."

    "As a Mac OS gamer it can occasionally be difficult to find peripherals that are compatible with the platform. I mostly play "retro" style games that use controllers instead of keyboard and mouse and so I decided to pick up the 8Bitdo SF30 Pro. After using it for a few months I can honestly say that this is a well designed controller. It connects via Bluetooth wireless or via USB and has a fairly long battery life. It is styled after a Super Nintendo controller and so it has a great feel overall. It works with everything I've tried thus far and I don't really have any real complaints. I highly recommend the controller to anyone who games on a Mac."
