Yet it has two of the best games of the year on it.
I own this Which does a great job and costs £15.77.
No idea how good the dock is as I don't own one. Got my switch as tablet and Joycons only.

But I would probably use the adapter I got for spare room or if going to a friend's as it's small.

This is the dock so that the switch can be played on a tv.
This however comes included in the box with the switch.
This is only for whom requires a replacement and or has a second tv they use the switch on and can't be bothered with moving the dock around.
Hope I helped.

Better than the £70 RRP so voted hot, but I often use a USB-C adapter I got from Gearbest for about £16, does a similar function:

I was recently saying that something like this would be ideal for a bedroom, thanks for sharing, just purchased!
Worth it to get the official AC adaptor with this at a more sensible price. Thanks OP, just need some joycons for £50 notes (that are in stock near me or delivery) and I'm ready for Christmas!

I have an Xbox one S, ps4 pro and the switch and can honestly say it's a fantastic piece of kit.

I didn't want to pay £300 for it when you can get the one S and pro for cheaper but it's definately worth it.

Obviously not for hard-core gamers but for children it's fantastic.

I'd say that the switch is actually aimed equally at the supposed "hard-core gamers" and children/casual audience alike. In it's first year it got two of the most highly rated and praised games of all time in Breath of the Wild and Mario Odyssey, with games like Bayonetta 3 and Metroid Prime 4 on the way. As you say it's an impressive bit of kit and every bit as worthwhile as a PS4, and moreso than an Xbox one (cos there's bugger all on it). Just saying, let's not write it off as a 'children's console'.
Out of stock for home delivery.

How long did it take to arrive? , as it says Location Jersey, but sellers registered in Hong Kong lol
Switch + Skyrim = awesome :-D Was tempted by the extra dock especially as the nintendo power units are £20-£25 on their own.

I think a few days. I was skeptical on location. But I recall it was signed for delivery.
I had ordered a few other bits at the same time as well. But it wasn't more than a week (without counting weekend).

Thanks, I will order it and hopefully delivery isn't too long.

This will be ideal, and reduces the risk of scratching the switch taking it in and out of the current dock
Ridiculously priced product even when a deal like this

Obviously never played on one, but you can review one. I'd suggest you play one before you judge. Yes I have one, and yes I love it.

Argh - "hardcore gamers" what does that even mean? I know your attempting to defend the console but that kind of opinion is so binary and base... Gaming is gaming... It's all essentially playing with sand at the side of the road of life... Pretending to be big boy soldiers or jumping around as an Italian plumber, it's all fun so who cares what's "hardcore"?
I literally never thought of this, but great idea. I think I’ll get one for work and one for the bedroom!

Think my milking cow days are behind me
If the dock is £60 and the Joy Cons are £70, that's £130 of the cost of a Console bundle. I think I'd rather just pay about £250 and get a 2nd screen and another pair of joy cons, and probably a game included too.

That only makes sense if you need all that stuff, but I am pretty sure I will be wanting a 2nd Switch screen in the future.

The cheap dock doesn't come with am adapter to power it, and whilst plenty of USB C chargers will charge the Switch in portable mode, I'm pretty certain that only the official one will power the dock.

The official one is 25 quid, making the cheap dock alternative 40 quid, Chinese made, likely not to the same standard as the Nintendo one. 50 for this is a lot, but it's a bargain compared to the full price and the alternatives.

Not sure there are many professional gamers who play the switch, buy there certainly are for PC/xbox/ps4.

I've thought the same thing :-p If nintendo had cloud saves like the ps4 I would consider another switch!

Same thought but different reasons. Cloud storage or space issues never even crossed my mind. I managed fine with the Wii U original memory provided. I am pretty much 100% physical copy game purchases, other than the odd select game which is digital only. I wouldn't buy another Switch for that reason anyway, I'd rather just upgrade with a bigger memory card if that were an issue.

I only intend to buy another Switch for portable multiplayer gaming, and also it is a good way of obtaining an extra dock, so can have one upstairs and one downstairs.

Wow! You must really hate having fun.
Paid full price for this when it came out. Don't regret it. It's great being able to move rooms this easily.

That said - the price adds up if - like me you want wired internet which adds another £10 for each dock. Possibly more again if you play with a Wavebird (everyone when they finally announce smash bros deluxe!)

It's not storage space that worries me, it's the fact there is no way to backup saves off console if it breaks or to cross save between consoles, well not yet anyway! Huge oversight by nintendo especially since it's a mobile console that could easily be lost, stolen or broken. Still love my switch though, once we can back up saves it will be perfect :-D
