    Essential

    Bought this to use on my Saturn with an 8bitDo M30 BT. Was a little tricky to get paired at first, but once it was connected it worked flawlessly. Necessary if you want to sit more than 4` from your TV.

    Saturn BT

    I didn`t think I needed it, I bought it because I thought they might be limited run, but goodness it`s nice to play without cords, and I don`t have to be worried about the cord weighing down and putting strain on the controller port.

    Very well made

    This will never leave my Saturns controller port. Pairing controllers is easy and the lag minimum that I couldn`t tell if it was there. It pairs easily with a lot of my 8bitdo controllers, especially with the 8bitdo Saturn DIY controller mod, which is perfect for this use case. The product doesn`t feel cheap and the shell is made from nice plastic. Highly recommend.
