No analog stickers. Bought one similar and hardly used because of that.
Bluetooth one does not work with mega drive mini. You need the 2.4Ghz one

It does, you just need the 8bitdo USB dongle.
The 2.4G is only for the original Mega Drive console.

If you only want it for the Mega Drive Mini, it's perfect.

Yeah but the retro receiver will only work on an original megadrive not the megadrive mini. There is a 2.4ghz variant for the megadrive mini

Just corrected myself.

There's only two variants...

Bluetooth version for Mini, which requires a USB adapter
2.4G version for the original Mega Drive console

I can't see a 2.4ghz version for the Mega Drive Mini??

No, my SNES Pro in my photo is for my NES/SNES Mini's and as a Pro controller for my Switch.

This Megadrive one will just be for my Mega Drive Mini.

If you're using them for the Original Megadrive, you'd need to get the 2.4GHZ versions as you can't add bluetooth to the original consoles.

You can if you buy the Bluetooth receiver designed for the original mega drive.

Yeah but I would prefer Bluetooth as it has less latency and interference. And you can use it on other emulation devices also.
I'm tempted to get the 2.4g one but you have to open them up to upgrade the firmware as the old firmware has issues

I'd personally go with the Bluetooth one like you said.
Made an account to say this but I bought it for full price a month or so ago and its worth every penny. Use it with my hacked Playstation Classic and PC and it's a joy to use. It requires some configuration in Retroarch (since the interface is an issue and doesn't save all the time) but its worth the hassle. Just be warned, the controller is seen as an SNES pad so keep that in mind when configuring buttons.

Can I just confirm this with you?

I can now buy the 8bitdo M30 Bluetooth version and use it on my megadrive mini. All I have to do is update the firmware on my playstation classic Bluetooth adapter, then the pad and the controller will function together on the megadrive mini?

Hope this makes sense

That's correct, exactly what I've done as I have the PS Classic USB adapter. It's basically the same as the original 8bitdo adapter.
