Low quality device, shotty workmanship - will last less than a year
on September 28, 2013
Please heed this advice and stay away from this stick if you are looking for a stick that will last. I know it looks good and it will be a fun accessory for a couple of months, but I have had two of these so far and both lasted less than a year while only being used lightly a couple of times a week. HORI support will not even talk to you if the stick is outside of the 90 day window. I have asked for only part information to order a potentiometer and cannot even get that from them. The company is not interested in keeping customers or their loyalty, they only want your money and they pray the stick lasts 90 days. It feels very heavy and sturdy but if you open it up you will see that is not because they add weights to the base to fool you into mistaking weight with quality materials and superior workmanship. I hate to write this review because I had such high hopes and thought maybe the first stick that died was a fluke. I tried to give HORI the benifit of the doubt, but that only wasted another $150. There are other options out there - stay away from HORI if you value your hard-earned dollars...
