No problems here yet. You're of course going to get a highlight reel cause this is the age of Youtube, so it's hard to say how much of this is just a normal amount of defective units or if it is abnormal. Same was done for the PS4's launch but no one remembers that anymore. Same for the Xbox360's black slim models.
As for the controllers de-syncing, I have a theory. By no means a defense, but wireless communication usually gets cut off in front of TV's. If you put a bluetooth near a TV screen it'll kill the signal immediately most of the time. I had non-bluetooth wireless keyboard and mice that did the same as well. There may be frequencies that don't have this problem, as I have one mouse that does work in that case, but it's possible the Switch uses that. I think it has to do with the radiation coming off the screen overpowering it.
I agree that the Switch doesn't feel that sturdy. The base especially feels cheap and I was very surprised to see that the screen contacting part of the base was simply plastic. Disappointed on that. My joycons don't wiggle when in handheld mode though, that I have noticed.
I think part of the problem is also that the Switch, unlike the 3DS, and WiiU, has barely any protection int he box. The packaging is very bare and the screen is flat agaisnt the side of the box with basically no protection.
