    Does exactly what it needs to

    If you follow the instructions anduse the right controller, the performance is great. I suggest reading all the documentation when setting it up to make the most of it.

    Excellent product

    Posted by Eduardo Pernia on Sep 4th 2023

    It is a product par excellence, I never imagined having a hall in my house that could be compatible with all the wireless controls that I have in my house, but when it comes to rearranging the buttons you have to have some guide like the one they share, our friend, the one who gives the sharing of the details of this product, that`s why it is very important to let people know that it is a high novelty product and that it has a lot of technology to be able to play on a PC Engine on a serious Turbo something Very technological, something very nice even, it gives you comfort when playing and, for my part, I give it five stars.

    Excellent Adapter

    Posted by Jeff S on Jun 14th 2023

    I love that this exists! I picked it up to not have to pick through the best of the worst 30 year old controllers on eBay. This hit the mark and works like a champ! Highly recommended if you still have a TG16 around that you want to continue enjoying.

    This adapter works great and is super easy to update. Used my NES Nintendo Switch Online controller and it worked perfectly.

    Turbo Owner Must-Have!

    Posted by Mitch Jones on Apr 3rd 2023

    This is an absolutely must-own product for Turbo oweners. It works flawlessly!

    The housing feels well constructed and professionally engineered. The documentation in the online manual is thorough and accurate.

    I`ve tried it with a dualsense, xbox series, and 8bitdo SN30 Pro. The documentation provides some latency figures but with the Turbo BT in aturbo connected to a CRT I couldn`t detect any noticeable latency to an original controller and the controllers I`ve mentioned.

    This thing is a game changer. No more sketchy aftermarket controllers and can keep my original controllers healthier for much longer. Will be keeping this in my Turbo from now on!

    I`ve Been Looking for Something Like this for a While

    Posted by Scott H on Dec 23rd 2022

    I`ve been looking for something to replace my stock TG16 controllers for a while so I was very happy to see this adaptor. I use it with my 8BitDo controller and it works great. I`m very happy with it.
