The Switch Returns!

…Or at least, the Switch dock and AC adapter do.

I wrote about the issue I had with my dock and adapter and why I had to send these for repair earlier this week. Somewhere in there, I wrote “Hopefully they’ll just send me a new dock and adapter and be done with it.”

That’s exactly what they did.

So my package to Nintendo was sent a week ago, and traveled over a holiday weekend to arrive there on Tuesday. Getting it there was honestly the longest part of all this. I got an email on Tuesday that said it had arrived.

Wednesday afternoon, I got an email and shipping confirmation that it was going out one-day shipping. Thursday, it was on my doorstep when I came home from work.

I’m pretty certain this is a new dock and AC adapter they sent due to the packaging, how neatly that adapter cord was wrapped up (you can just never get it to wrap the same as it came when it was new) and the new plastic smell.

Sure enough, I plugged it all up to my new monitor and there was joy!

As you can see above, it’s not as big as my old TV, but I think it’ll work just fine. I have to admit that I’m disappointed in the sound quality from the monitor, though. I know what Zelda sounded like on my old TV, so I can compare.

I did have an extra set of PC speakers sitting around that I plugged in instead, and that helped. But I think I’ll need a new set with more bass to them to get the full experience. Anyone have suggestions on good (small) PC speakers?
