My neon red (the left one) Joy-con seems to be exhibiting the dreaded Joy-con drift...

It seems that the left Joy-cons are the ones that drift!

My left Mario Red Joy-Con has started drifting (more)... :sad3

It could be dusty though

I'll have to try blowing it out later!

I've yet to experience Joycon Drift myself (Pro Controller user here). Also added the aforementioned Joycon Drift fix video to the YouTube Gallery.

Is a pro-controller considered a replacement for the Joy-cons? I only have one left Joy-con that doesn't drift, and I've heard that the pro-controller doesn't drift! Would you recommend it? Well, I've read your above messages, so it may be a "Yeah!"!

I have not heard of it, but I think it can happen with enough usage. Also I think the Switch has to be docked or left standing to use the pro controller.

It seems that my Mario Red Joy-cons have stopped drifting! After several hours of use, drifting seems to have become non-existent, as if they have recovered from a sickness, or a case of stiff joints: Just stretch them out, and they feel better!

In other words: THE DRIFT IS GONE FOR THE TIME BEING!!! :yahoo

Nope, but then again my console I try to take care of and always like to rotate the joysticks in a circle in case the issue was the graphite pads. If one left side drifts though I have a spare.
