Review: EasySMX 9124 Controller

Controllers are a personal thing; what someone likes and insists is the best controller of all time, there will be someone else to explain exactly why they’re entirely wrong. What I think everyone will agree on, though, is that the EasySMX 9124 controller is fantastic value for money, but is it good?

Design and Construction

The controller feels very premium, despite having a very affordable price. Connecting via Bluetooth (there is also a dongle sold separately for PC connectivity) or cable is straightforward and clearly denoted with indicator lights on the front of the controller. Feeling like a Switch Pro controller, it’s incredibly comfortable to hold, and the grip on the handles prevents slipping. Fingers fall naturally onto the controller, and it never felt awkward to reach most of the buttons.

On pressing the home button to turn it on, the indicator lights and the backlights for A/B/X/Y light up. I particularly love what EasySMX have done with these button lights as they give the controller some life and, due to how it’s constructed, an almost 3D effect. The version I have to review is white with a black back and looks very sleek, I particularly appreciate the minimalist company logo at the top of the controller.

In terms of connectivity, there’s a USB-C port at the top, along with a mount attachment for a mobile phone holder.

Buttons Galore!

When it comes to buttons, this controller has a lot. Beyond the standard switch controller buttons, you also have four programmable buttons on the underside that are easy to access when holding the controller normally.

Buttons and joysticks all feel responsible, and there is little to no input lag. The buttons are tactile, robust and make a satisfying click when pressed.

Using the EasySMX 9124 Controller

I tested the controller with a variety of listed compatible devices and had no issues with any of them. Naturally, it felt most familiar when using it with the Nintendo Switch. Playing games and navigating menus felt seamless and responsible, and I love how tactile the buttons are.

The mapping process for the M buttons on the back is straightforward enough, and the instructions are clear for setting it all up.

When it comes to the ‘rumble’, I can tell you this controller has it! Perhaps a little too intense, but sadly I couldn’t find a way to reduce the intensity during my testing.

Where to Buy?

The EasySMX 9124 controller can be purchased directly from EasySMX themselves, or on sites like Amazon.

Final Thoughts on the EasySMX 9124 Controller

Overall, the EasySMX 9124 controller is fantastic for the price point, and, honestly, better than a lot of the more expensive ones. It’s comfortable to hold and use, the buttons and joysticks are responsive and tactile, and the battery life is decent. It is also compatible with a variety of devices, making it a great choice.

When I was seven years old, I tried to write a spy novel. It was terrible; in case you wondered, but I’ve always loved stories. Then I got to play video games and suddenly here were stories that could be told in so many ways, coming to life in front of my eyes. I’ve been hooked ever since and enjoy games on pretty much every platform you can imagine! (Primarily PS5, Switch and PC (Steam Deck) with a lot of retro SEGA, Sony, and Nintendo). When I’m not gaming, I’m still writing that spy novel. If you love stories too, I hope my reviews and features help you discover something new! Find me on Twitter @Refelian66.
