8Bitdo SFC30 Wireless Gamepad Controller - £14.48 - AliExpress

Found 3rd Mar
I've been looking for something like this since the DS3 died. The Pi now has no controller £14.48 looks like a fantastic price.

If you don't mind paying about £4 more, you can get one on eBay for £18

Wirelessly no i don't think so, according to 8bitdo's site this controller does not support bluetooth only a 2.4Ghz signal which require the dongle to work, and this dongle is designed to fit the snes classic. however it will probably work when plugged in with the usb cable.

I don't think this supports bluetooth, i think the seller on ali express messed up his description, the specs above are for the pro model which does support bluetooth and not for the model shown in the images.
This one isn’t Bluetooth buzz.
Sfc30 is only 2.4 and works with dongle
sf30 is Bluetooth and 2.4. I have 2 for my snes classic

That’s the old one that is now sf30 as in my picture. The one in the link is the sfc30 classic edition which is 2.4 only, and you can tell them apart with the dark face and the bundled dongle that doesn’t come with the sf30.

It’s confusing as the item pic on the link is an SFC30 Pro, the description mentions an SFC30 but also shows an SF30. God knows what it is. *Edit* See what you mean now. I hadn’t made a selection. Think it will be the wireless one as you say.

How are they on the Snes Classic anyway? Any input lag? Reason I ask is I had a little when using it on my Amazon Fire TV box and it made Mario World feel off.

It’s really good on the snes mini using the dongles, no noticeable lag. Can’t say what it’s like on other devices using Bluetooth.
The controller advertised here is the 24Ghz RADIO connection and does NOT connect via Bluetooth. The way to tell is that the receiver has no micro USB connection for firmware updates.

For Bluetooth, you need either the SNES looking controller with two analogue sticks, or the new ‘retro receiver’ bundles released alongside the Super NT.
I really didn't need this, I already have like 5 8bitdo controllers as it is, including the pro version of this.
I still goddamn bought at this price...
Ty OP heat added
You can still get the original (now discontinued) Bluetooth pads on Aliexpress, I brought one about a week ago to go with my SNES (had to buy the Bluetooth SNES adaptor as well) this is the one I brought:
aliexpress.com/ite…2pU
Although its gone up in price now as I paid just under £17 (and about £11 for the adaptor), have to say it is awesome
No noticeable lag and really does feel like an original Nintendo pad (possibly just a bit lighter).
Do not buy from aliexpress scam artist. I brought 2 items at Xmas 1 I received faulty no refund no replacement open dispute aliexpress back the seller. The 2nd item I never received the tracking stop working after 2 weeks. Open dispute about 8 week later, the seller then produced tracking from out of no where showing that the item a been delivered 130 mile from where I live. Aliexpress backed the seller; I lost about £50 all together. ALIEXPRESS BETTER OF THROWING MONEY DOWN THE TOILET at lest then you have lost the money but none of the stress and anxiety.

Yes that is correct sorry i was just going off descriptions of both. Seller lists multiple models but only the highest in their title along with description which is for the pro model they list for a higher price this one pictured above is lower model without bluetooth which pro has as mentioned in description so wouldn't work via bluetooth.

Its kinda like a chinease ebay in the sense sometimes you just get crap sellers but always best to check feedback ect first I've bought alot off them. Had issues too but they were resolved without me being scammed just watch how long your protection is left on orders so if you need to claim do so before it runs out.

Ebay always favour the buyer regardless of what seller says. Can't even leave negative feedback for buyers anymore
