I picked up the 8bitdo M30, if anyone wants my thoughts on it here it goes:

I have played this on both my HDTV and my PVM, and I have yet to notice any discernible lag. It feels great after hours of play, and I was able to play through Ghouls 'n Ghosts with no issues what so ever. The charge seems to last longer than the SNES version. Now on the downside it has a slippery feel at first, especially on the back of the controller. Other than that I have no issues with it so far. It really does feel like a Saturn controller.

No, the wireless one. My house is prone to bluetooth interference, plus I dont plan on using it on anything other than a Genesis.

Oddly, it seems both model are called "M30," that's why I asked.

Thanks for the input, I'll add it to the first post.

Hmm, looks like you are right. I thought they had different names as well. I guess the only way to know for sure is the 2.4g on the end of the wireless one. I should also point out that the wireless version comes with a receiver, but the bluetooth one does not.

Any idea if they are making a 2.4g version for the Saturn? That would be sweet.

I don't think they are, but I think Retro Bit is working with Sega to make wireless Saturn and Dreamcast controllers. I think the wired version of the Saturn is already out. Be great if they make some new 3D controllers.

Added my thoughts for a couple of controllers in the first post.

Picked up that saturn retrobit controller a couple months ago. Feels great, looks great (got the blue one), no lag, has never "lost control". Pretty good deal, I'm happy with it. Hopefully dreamcast is next.

I picked up two new controllers after Christmas, and I'm quite impressed with both:

The Hyperkin Scout is a wireless SNES controller. I'm using it in my Retron 5 to play NES and GB/C/A as well.

The Hyperkin Admiral is even more interesting...

This is a wireless N64 controller that takes it's shape from those nice Hori ones. It's way more comfortable than a stock N64 controller. Also, it has the memory card slot in the dongle, along with an SD card reader so you can back up or move saves - basically, making it so you only need one memory card. The drawback is no rumble support, but I can live without that considering the benefits of this thing.
