    @ecu that's the exact one I've got in my Switch and had no problems with it.

    Toshiba Exceria M302 128GB https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B01EAKAUUK/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_MVntAbHX40V31
    The toshiba is U3 (faster transfer rate) and cheaper at the moment.

    The ‘official’ Sandisk nintendo Switch memory card is U3 too (and about twice the price) so I can only assume its

    Personally, I have the Sandisk card that you posted, mostly because it was much cheaper on a Black Friday deal; it works fine!

    I've got this for mine. It's pretty good.

    This has helped - and has the added bonus of making the device feel sturdier if holding it at one end (instead of feeling like you may be placing undue pressure on the joy con).
    Yeah I thought the same. It's not a must have accessory but I did find it makes it more comfortable. Quick to remove as well for docking.

    Yeah i make sure I never hold the whole thing by just one attached joycon, feels like it could snap off.

    I went with the official nintendo one. Lowest profile to the best of my knowledge but not the hardest case. I have had no issues with breakages though and it goes in a out of work with me every day.

    Same as. Seems quite soft but I’ve never had a problem and mine’s been bouncing around in a bigger bag with other stuff for months.

    The “best” is the SF Waterfield City Slicker Case....

    I went for the soft botw case. Not too bulky but padded enough.

    @THFourteen do you use the shoulder strap?

  • Deleted user 15 January 2018 16:21:24
    I got this one.

    The carry case itself is quite sturdy and you have enough storage space for 12 cartridges (10 in the carry case, 2 in a plastic case). The only complaint I'd have is that there isn't enough space for the AC adaptor but it does hold my replacement USB-C cable and powerbank so there is that.

    The other accessories are mostly fluff but fine. The screen protector film I applied in early December is still in good nick and seems to be doing a good job of preventing the dock from scratching it. The rubber covers for the JoyCons are about the only thing you can bin in good conscience as they're fucking useless - you can't press the buttons properly through them and you can't put the JoyCons on the charging grip without the rubber getting in the way.

    Any thoughts on third-party HDMI/USB-C adapters with small form factors that work with the Switch and could theoretically be packed into a carry case?

    Ordered the Gripcase from Indigogo after hearing good things. Expensive at $51 delivered but has 2 changeable grips and a big case. Got delivered to the office today (ordered Sat) but stupid reception didn't notify me. Will report back tomorrow when I give it a go.

    I just ordered one of these

    Anyone got one? I couldn't resist and makes having all the cartridges in one place a lot easier to deal with.

    Any new recommendations for the list?


    Recommended products by forum members. There's a few Orzly products. I'm not on commission, honest!

    I think it's fair to say that this is considered to be far the best screen protector.

    Orzly Tempered Glass Screen Protector:

    Various carry cases. Some are bigger than others.

    Orzly Carry Case:

    Younik Upgrade Version Hard Travel Carrying Case:

    Nintendo Switch Deluxe Travel Case - Zelda (Grey)

    Gioteck Premium Storage Carry Case

    There are a variety of Anker Power banks available such as:



    Nintendo Switch Stand, Lamicall Foldable Tablet Stand : Desktop Stand Holder Dock for Nintendo Switch:

    Note that this stand partially blocks some of the vents so it could reduce cooling.

    An alternative is:

    HORI Switch Compact PlayStand


    Orzly Grips compatible with Nintendo Switch Joy-Cons for Extra Comfort
    Other versions of this basically seem the same so buy the cheapest ones.

    With all these fighting games coming out it would be nice if Switch owners would get something like this:

    For the casual players that is. I'm not getting into the 'pad versus fight stick' discussion :-)

    The Pokken Tournament pad will work on many but not all fighting games.

    @rice_sandwich Ah thanks for the tip, but that is a four button configuration, I would also want to play retro Capcom fighters more comfortably.

    Can anyone who has has tried both the Faceoff wired controller and the original pro controller give a bit of a comparison between the two?
    I understand the Faceoff is lighter due to missing rumble pack. But I kinda like the idea of having a wired controller especially for SMBU later this year.

    GripCase from Amazon I guess the kickstarter was successful!

    I got it yesterday and it is everything they say in the videos - ie good tight fit so you can still get it in the dock, comfortable, great case, and feels quality (a hard term but you know what I mean - it doesn't feel like cheap plastic, or fit loosely, etc.)

    All in all I would give it a 4 out of 5. The one star lose is because while it fits in the dock the grips cover up the USB port on the left side of the dock. I have my 8bitdo controller dongle there so I can use the Xbox 1 controller. So to leave the case on while docked I wouldn't be able to use the dongle. The point of the dongle is to play with the Xbox 1 controller while docked so obviously I have to take the case off when I dock it.

    Luckily it goes on and off easily enough. It is just a tiny oversight on the manufacturers planning. Not a huge issue though.

    Here are some pictures. My son isn't great at focus yet so some are blurry.

    I recommended one of these ages ago. Anyway, they’re on discount today. If you want a stand it’s great. Good for multiplayer because it raises it up and gives a better viewing angle. So you can squeeze four round. Not ideal but certainly tolerable sat outside in the summertime.
