EasySMX ESM-9124 Controller Review

Rating: 7.5.

EasySMX's ESM-9124 wireless controller is an affordable alternative to the big brand controllers. Available with three colour options, including an eye-catching dragon design, and compatible with a variety of devices, it certainly looks the part. The proof is in the performance though, so let's find out just how good it is when used on a gaming PC.

KitGuru says: The ESM-9124 wireless controller is a decent, affordable alternative to the more expensive ‘official' controllers. It won't blow you away, but for anyone with kids looking for an affordable replacement for a Nintendo Switch controller then the ESM-9124 is a worth a look.
