What accessories have we found useful? I personally like my screen protector from Orzly and I am tempted for the pro controller. Thoughts?

Put on the screen protector ASAP that I got with the standard carrying case. The case also doubles as a second kickstand while playing in bed. Very useful. I can highly recommend the pro controller.
I was concerned about the size at first, as my hands are pretty big, but it turns out it is the most comfy option to play longer sessions. The slightly reduced size results in a button and stick placement that feels better than say the Xbox One gamepad. Can't tell you how it compares to the PS4 controller though.

When I first started playing Zelda I thought I was going to NEED a pro controller, but I've gotten used to the Joycons on the grip. I still want a pro controller, though, but I can't find it anywhere!

I can't find a screen protector ANYWHERE. Of course after I canceled my zelda starter kit after I saw the case that comes with BotW and I decided that was all I needed. I am not taking this puppy anywhere until I have a screen protector.

Ordered the RDS Game Traveler Deluxe System Travel Case from Target online, which seems to be the only place that has them in stock and $10 cheaper than everywhere else. Should arrive in a couple of days. Switch will mostly be staying home, so I wanted a case that could hold the dock as well for longer trips.

Picked up the Hori Compact Playstand from Target in-store. Couldn't find in stock online. I would say it's serviceable, but seems like a slight bump could knock it over with the Switch on it so just have to be mindful of that when using. I'm hoping it will fit in the case I bought, and it is indeed pretty compact.

Also ordered the amFilm tempered glass screen protector online from Walmart. Could not find in stock online, and ended up ordering from Walmart and paid a bit extra for expedited shipping to get it as soon as possible. Should arrive in a couple of days.

So basically for the Switch and Accessories, the stores I looked at first (Amazon, Best Buy, Gamestop) have been big disappointments, while Wal-Mart and Target have come through.

Oh should add that Gamestop has been the biggest source of irritation. They offer some nice trade-in incentives for Switch, Accessories and Games, but they basically have to be in stock in the store at the time of trade-in. So I don't even know if they'll even get the Switch items in stock before the trade-in offer expires. At this point, I'm holding out for the store getting a pro controller but when I called a couple of days ago the sales person claimed that no Gamestop within 200 miles had them in stock. In the meantime, Target and Best Buy have them. Ridiculous!

get a glass screen protector if you can, the plastic one you get with the official carry case is really hard to get on without getting bubbles or bits of dust under it ! took me ages to get on lol

LAN adapter is working well for me. I had a difficult time downloading updates via the WNIC.

Here's the accessories I've got so far...

Switch Pro Controller
64GB SanDisk MicroSDHC Card
HORI Switch Tough Case
Pack of Micro Fibre Cloths (I'm going to put one in with the HORI case)

I have also ordered the 'Orzly Premium Tempered Glass Screen Protector' - which, annoyingly, isn't due to be delivered until next week (Tuesday). I've got a spectacle cleaning cloth draped over the dock in the meantime and, on the rare occasions I do take it out and play in hand-held mode, I am very careful.

I bought the following accessories:

Pro Controller
Carrying case
64 GB Micro SD card
Orzly tempered glass screen protector (hasn't arrived yet)

Really happy with the Pro controller, especially since I basically only play in TV mode. It's probably the best controller I've ever used, or at least really close to it. I definitely like it more than the Dualshock 4. The carrying case I bought is super tacky looking because it has Mario stuff plastered all over one side like stars and mushrooms and stuff, but that was the only case my Wal-Mart had, and it's a good quality case, at least. Might have to buy a less kiddy looking one later on though, lol. At least it had a plastic protector included with it that I'm using until my tempered glass one arrives.

I don't know why I bought a pro controller. I never use them.

I only have a carrying case for the Switch, which came with two cartridge cases (holding four cartridges each), and I've just bought a Pro Controller. I'm tempted to buy another set of Joy-Cons too, but I'll wait until Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is released in the unlikely event that themed Joy-Cons are available by that point. I don't want to waste any money on generic Joy-Cons when nicer alternatives will inevitably become available at some point.

Only have the Nintendo case (with the inbuilt stand and protector). Also bought the HORI stand thought it was worth a punt at £10 but still to be delivered. Heavily considering pro controller.

Does anyone have the Hori all in one bag? (http://www.play-asia.com/all-in-one-bag-for-nintendo-switch/13/70aw6b?li_medium=default-widget&li_source=LI&ref=liftigniter)
I've been thinking of buying it since i travel semi often & i've been looking for some impressions of it.

I went ahead and ordered the RDS Nintendo Switch Game Traveler Case after checking out all the available options. I thought it was pretty cool that it comes with card cases for both games and microSD cards.
Amazon sent me an order update email saying it will be back in stock by end of March, but I probably won't actually have my Switch till sometime in Spring (I hope!) anyways...
