I purchased this back in the autumn, and have held off reviewing this as the feed back from others has been of a mixed response, so here goes.
The unit arrived on time as per all my purchases from good old Amazon, and well packaged. I had mixed feelings at first of giving this ago, as people reported that the controllers where / stopped working etc. This might be due to insisting that the consol is turned off to stand-by when not in use. However we have had this going for about 6 to 8 months without any issues, the batteries where easily installed they charged up through the USB socket at the rear of the Wii consol (but only when it is not in stand-by mode) which to be quiet honest is not an issue, as my kids and all their mates that come around have not had the batteries fail or be in a fully discharged state not enabling them to play on the consol. The unit matches the colour of the Wii consol and with the added benefit of allowing the hand units to be stored away neatly when not in use.
To sum it up over the last months of use we have not had any issues, it charges the hand sets with out any problems ensuring that they are fully operational for play time, batteries fitted without any problems, looks great and for the money you can't go wrong, five starts
