In particular the SF30 controller?

Any thoughts?

I don't have any but everything I've read about them is positive. Nice looking controllers.

I would love something like this.  I currently use my PS4 controller.  I want to try my arcade stick out on some of the arcade games though, I want to see if it feels a little more like I experienced at Arcade Club.

Oooo - Arcade stick. I forgot about that. Some time ago I built an arcade stick for my 360.
Took a wired controller and connected real joystick and buttons and put it in a big box. (Will have to see if I still have it - might be in the loft).
It was pretty huge like - but it worked. IIRC I did it when Scramble came out on Xbox Live because it was a pita to play on a 360 controller - especially the penultimate stage !

Did you receive one?  Which did you go for?

My DS3/4 controllers are giving me issues via bluetooth.  Considering getting one of these as I think it'll be much more compatible, especially if I buy their bluetooth dongle also.

Where did you order from? Was it out of stock?  I've only seen a few places who seem to sell 8Bitdo controllers in the UK.
