Does this plug into the switch or the dock?

As with most wired controllers, it plugs into the dock - I THINK.

This is a major problem for all the wired controllers to be honest, it would not take much of a tug on one of those wires, someone tripping over them etc. to yank the switch dock and potentially send the switch hurtling to it's death.

The switch dock is much less sturdy than other consoles, and the controllers don't plug straight into the front either. I love my switch a lot but I am never gonna chance it with a wired controller.

So what you're saying is "live on your own and you're ok". That's me sorted then and I know the gf won't be interested in me whipping it out (the controller) when she is around.

Yeah, for sure, they're not awful. It's just something to consider if you'd have guests around and your wires would go through the middle of the room etc. Not suitable for my home setup.

I'll see what's on offer on black Friday (importing a switch from the states - what's the point in having a sister in the states if I can't abuse their cheaper electrical products).
The one on Amazon isn't the same

Whats enhanced about it ?
I'm looking for a cheap controller for pc gaming, does anyone have experience using the switch controller? They are cheaper than the ps4 and xbox one controller from what i've found.
You can get a clone wireless one for this kind of money if you shop around. Not a bad deal if you really want to use a mainstream retailer though.

Yes, it will be fine. Windows detects it as a 360 pad but otherwise you'll have no problem.

Plugs into the dock, there are no USB ports on the console itself (the USB-C port for charging/docking, does not support accessories).
No rumble, no NFC.
Not a fan of this brand!
Loads of one star reviews on Amazon.

3rd party Switch controllers may be cheaper, but the genuine Switch Pro controller is usually more expensive than genuine PS/XB controllers.

If you're looking for a cheaper but really good controller, a lot of people (myself included) recommend the 8bitdo one over the official wireless controller. It connects to Smartphone and PC too, it has old school thumbstick placement, a great dpad, and you can customise your button layout (swap A & B on switch)

It's on sale atm, I bought mine full price and no regrets.
