i really don't know why i wasted my money on this. It works for a few weeks but was getting very hot. Then it stopped working. I tried it again after a few days and it was working again. Now it's not working at all. No lights, nothing. What a waste of my time.

Note that this remote WILL NOT work if you plan on emulating the Wii on pc, it constantly disconnects and doesn't work well with the emulator, the Dolphin emulator at least.

As for the console, it works, with some care. You cannot start the Wii console with it which will require you to to use an Official Wii remote to start the console and then go into the controller settings before synchronizing the remote and then finally playing.

The other reviews are far too kind on the quality of sound from the remote. The sounds on The Legend of Zelda and Metroid Prime give you a head ache when emitted from the remote and when comparing this remote to the Official one, the sound is a high pitch crackling, which will make you want to turn the sound off all together.

This is what you get for your money, a cheap mess.

Buy at your own risk.

Kids were after 2 extra controllers so they could play 4 player games. Had priced them up in the shops and they were all ridiculously expensive so decided to try these. Was a little apprehensive having read reviews as whilst most were good some were very bad but decided to risk it. They arrived very quickly and were well packaged. No instructions were provided and at first I thought they were a bad buy as they didn't seem to connect with the Wii but after checking online how to sync them and following instructions we got both going. We have found them temperamental at times and not always as responsive as the 'proper' remotes but by and large they do work and for the price I would say they are definitely worth buying as extras although if I wanted them as my main remotes I would probably bite the bullet and pay full price for official ones. Overall I am pretty happy.

These Wii remotes do not work. they sit on charge for about 12 hours wasting electricity only to find the Wii does not recognise them or they have not charged even though the lights have changed to blue, thought it may be the charging dock but they do not charge in the Wii branded dock. Waste of money.

was delivered very quickly, very well packaged. Having never used a WII console before, I had to contact the company to find out how to get the controller to work with the console. I had a quick response to my query and found out that all you have to do is press the 'sync' button on the controller (located under the battery cover) and press the 'sync' button on the console at the same time. This makes the controller work to enable it to be used with your console. Once I had sorted this, all was great and have had no further problems. Thanks. would recommend this item as was good value for money.

Everything was as specified. The packaging and timing were as stated and the items just as ordered. This completes my set at a very reasonable price.

Okay, it's not the official one, which I hardly expected for its price. the plastic is a little more creamy as opposed to white but that's no problem to the way it works. It works perfectly and syncing it was the same as the official one. the buttons are the same and also the layout. The remote has a little rattle when you shake it but this effect the way it works. the Wii reads it just as well as the official and the Wii chuck that comes with it isn't any different to the official one. Overall a real bargain!

Although these both take about a minute to sync to my Bluetooth dongle, once they're connected they both work like a charm! My sister and I had a great time playing Mario Kart Wii on Dolphin with them, as well as New Super Mario Bros Wii :D They correctly send all the proper signals such as tilt and shake actions, so all I need now is for the Sensor Bar to arrive to make use of the IR signals they are sending out! We used candles in the meantime which work just as well!

For my unluck this item never arrived. I waited 30 working days, made a report, they said they would resend the item. Waited another 30 working days, nothing arrived. Made another reply for the refund becouse the itens was beeing lost somewhere and the seller said me that too mutch time was passed since the purchage. Well if I was waiting for the itens what would they expect? The truth is that i waited 4 months for the item, nothing arrived and i lost my money.
