    I have the same screen protector. I love that it's a 2-pack and I've had my current one on there for almost 2 years. To prevent THAT from getting scratched from the dock, I actually lined the inside of the dock with the soft end of velcro.

    Love your ultimate console videos. The one thing I love about the other ones over this one though is that those videos ended with all the crap running all at once as additional pieces to a cohesive system. A lot of the pieces in this one were straight up contradictory.

    That joycon grip meant for a phone I would actually legitimately buy it it fit the switch safely. I find that controller to be much more comfortably than any grip/case they make for the switch. I amse it would net slightly lower battery life than handheld mode, but I don't even care.

  • Mike Bircher

    All of this stuff bricked his Switch after 5.0

    • sagich dirdochnicht
      sagich dirdochnicht

      @ZVX "bricking" (as in a Device is bricked) means, that your expansive turned in Functionality to a Brick. Or a Paperweight. In other words, it's dead, not really fixable, not useable, dead. A Brick. This happened, because Nintendo, since they are fucking Stupid, use a USB C port, and all of that shit, but took a huge Dump onto the USB Protocol. You see, a "standard" USB Port delivers 5V, wich is fine, but ever since we got fast charging, Devices can "talk" now to the chargers to demand a specific Voltage. And with USB C, this became way more standarized. If a company uses a non USB Standard for fast charge, the charger can not really communicate with the device and keeps the voltage at 5V. This is what Nintendo should have done. But for some reason, they are using the same protocoll, but with somewhat fucked up output voltages. Wich for some weird Reason only happened after they made an Update. What happened, in easy terms, is basically that the Switch told chargers, it wants eg 9V in "USB- Language", but in reality only wanted eg 6V. That commad is basically the same, but the Output is different. A to high Voltage, even if it's just 3V difference, can, especially over longer time, damage a Product beyond repair. Wich totally happened to a LOT of Folks, that used third party Docks and Dongles, that technically do the same. Note: this is pretty much the ONLY fucking device this happens, because everyone else just does, what the USB Protocoll dictates. Even fucking Apple! You can not Brick your Macbook by using third Party USB Chargers, nor does the Apple charger brick your Phone, UNLESS the charger is seriously faulty and delivers wrong voltages. Tinfoil time: Maybe this was intentional by Nintendo, maybe they didn't like that with USB C, anyone could just buy a cheap Dongle, that does the SAME as the Switch Dock. Note: Those Dongles can't brick your Macbook or Smartphone either.... And Remember: An official Switch Dock is around ~120$ or something. The Tech inside there is seriously worth not more 20$. Seriously, this thing is overprized beyond believe.

    3:20, plug the cable into the top of the charger and run it to the back of the Switch stand. Controllers will charge on the switch, and two more will charge on the battery, while the battery charges the switch that is charging two of four controllers. That said the function of the Switch is that it’s a good portable device, and it would be docked at other places where someone already owns a switch. It’s a hot-swappable games console.

    I'd definitely recommend getting a glass screen protector, I got the Orzly protector for my Switch. Some people don't notice scratches from the dock, but I think this is down to slight manufacturing tolerances, ie. some will be a tighter fit. Even after inserting my Switch into the dock only a few times (very gently), it was starting to scuff the plastic, so I put it on the same day.

  • Austin Martinez

    The one accessory I also suggest to have is the Nintendo switch backpack which can hold up to eight Joy cons as well as a pro controller and your switch and any other little accessory that you would want. I'm almost positive you could fit all of that stuff in this backpack.

  • Lethalbacon 3306
    Lethalbacon 3306

    Technically, the ultimate switch is the best switch, having 128 GB with the capability of holding 2 TB, means it is not an ultimate switch

  • Sub_Square

    3:54 That's the only real accessory I would recommend, and a second set of joy cons or a pro controller. Also stay away from those 3rd party chargers, they can shorten the lifespan of the joycon, and switch itself battery wise.

  • Nunchuck

    You should make an updated version of this list, so many more accessories have come out

    I would’ve thought the ultimate switch would be a good carrying case to hold extra joy cons and the charger along with all the good games inside( Mario party, Zelda, odyssey, smash etc etc) with a 128 gb micro sd and for the Nintendo dock just the separate charger to charge 4 joy cons

    Th reason ethernet to USB is so massive, is usually because ETH (Ethernet) to usb requires a few types of chipsets and whatnot to convert the power to digital usb stuff. (Not sure what it’s called but ok I forget a lot) that being said, it’s not that hard to just make it smaller

      that doesnt make sense. bootcamp doesnt run inside the mac environment. It is a setup for dual boot. You dont actually run bootcamp windows inside of MacOS. you could technically try to run windows in parallels in a VM though.
