    Great for all ages!

    I got 2 Nintendo Switches for my kids last Christmas. They are great, the whole family enjoys them. It let's you have the opportunity to play an endless amount of games from classics to the new ones. Its great to use as a handheld system or through the television. There is some issues with the joycons, but nintendo customer service is great and will fix or replace them for free.

    loved it 0 recommend I would buy this product again

    I went to my local Best Buy to check on a Geek Squad repair. While I was in line; I noticed a woman returning a Nintendo Switch. When she left, I asked Best Buy if I could purchase it. Originally I was told that all game consoles get sent back for refurbishing if they're used. I thought that made sense, and thanked them for taking the time to answer my question. While I was finishing up with Geek Squad, a manager approached me and asked if I was still interested in purchasing the Switch, I said of course. He explained to me that the Switch was new, still sealed, and therefor could be resold in store. He said people still return them to the store all the time. He also mentioned some people purchase them online, and never pick them up. There was actually a Switch waiting to get picked up that had been at the store for more than 21 days; in a few more days it will be going back on the shelves. The secret is luck and asking questions when you're in a Best Buy store. I still can not believe after looking around online for more than 6 months; I randomly purchased a Switch walking into my local Best Buy. I have seen these things being sold online for 3x the price. Do not do that! Sign up for alerts when items are out of stock now, and get notified when they're back in stock. One thing I did do prior to getting a Switch is I built up my little game collection. Whenever games went on sale, I bought them. I also bought the case when it went on sale too. The Switch does not come with any games or a case; so while you're waiting for the console to come back in stock; now would be a good time to go game hunting for some great deals. Also, for an extra $50 Best Buy will give you the 2 year warranty; I highly suggest purchasing it. Best of luck!

    Great for the kids

    I bought this a few months ago and have had no issue. Great for 2 player games and awesome entertainment. Only thing I find is the games are a bit over price with $100 per game. You can buy others for $2-$150

    Worth it

    Worth the money! Love the games and the console itself. Its great to be able to play away from home, say on the airplane. On the big screen I prefer to play with the pro controller, if you haven't invested in one of those what are you waiting for?

    Best family video game console

    Our entire family of 5 enjoys this. Perfect for a 4 and 6 year old who are just learning how to play video games. We also love all the game options for this console. Great family time.

    Great Console

    I've had my Nintendo Switch for over a year and a half and I still love it. I love that it is portable but can also dock to be played on a TV. There's so many games that I've spent hours playing and there are more and more being released.

    A few issues with this system

    My family loves this gaming system and we play A LOT. Unfortunately, there are a couple issues:

    First, the controllers do not last long and need replacement more than they should if played frequently. These are $80 a set, so buying these every 6-12 months is expensive. The left controller is the one to wear out most in our house, but you can only buy these in pairs. I just spent another $160 on 2 pairs of controllers last weekend because the left controllers (joystick) was no longer working.

    Second, there are not a ton of quality games for this platform and it seems like we can only find a "good game" 1-2 times a year. When new games average $60, buying something that is just ok doesn't make sense.

    Pretty good

    It’s convenient to bring with you on the go but also works great when you want it on the big screen. The controllers are not my favorite, they are quite small if you want to play on the big screen. I bought wireless controllers which are really good, so fun to play with. I would recommend it if you like Nintendo games. It sure is pretty expensive though...

    My son loves the switch

    We bought the switch last year for my 5 year old for Christmas. There are so many games option in the online Nintendo shop for super cheap. We love the ability to play on the TV when they're are multiple players. Definitely a must have if you like mario.
