Didn't watch the muppet guy, but my switch (bought summer of 2017) had a big blue "oil slick" in the middle of the screen, got it exchanged last year. One of my joycons drops connection if anything is in front of it while playing. Still, it's a pretty premium product imo. Nintendo do good hardware imo, not powerful in the graphics department though.
I don't think so... unsure if I might've had it but thinking it was because of the desync of controller thing I mentioned... only read about it, always sceptical of these kind of stories (until it happens to me lol) as they usually get blown out of proportion (every new iPhone model seems to have huge problems at some point according to media).You had no issues with the analog sticks drifting? I’ve had no major issues, but I’ve heard story’s from coworkers who have.
