A major selling-point to me was the decreased size of the controller; I found it to be a bit more comfortable to hold and play with for extended periods of time. My hands aren't tiny, mind you; nor are they fatigued by long hours of gaming, but the difference was noted. Ergonomics-wise, the Mini Pro is shaped nicely; it doesn't feel alien in the slightest and I didn't spend much time having to get used to the thing. Comparing it to Microsoft's default game pad, the EX is much slimmer and thus isn't as taxing to grip. In terms of length they're nearly identical, and the same goes for weight -- the device has a pleasantly solid feel to it.
Getting to the important bits: the analogue sticks are excellent. They're tight, responsive and produce a satisfying click when pushed in. The same can't be said for the digital pad, unfortunately; while precise enough for switching between items or various other simple functions like menu navigation, I can't recommend it for fighting games.
Moving onward: the face buttons work well but lack tactility; they sink in without either resounding audio cues or physical ones. They're not bad, but they're not particularly good either. The left and right bumpers are the exact opposite, having a nice give to them and responding with a little click.Read more ›
I've had it about 2 months now. Still use it for everything.
Update:It's the end of April 2013. Still chugging along no issues yet over the last year. Ended up buying a $1 extender to give me a 30ft range. Game in bed? yes. Using it to play Duke nukem forever on steam using Big picture mode. Why am I playing this terrible game??? nvm scratch that I'm playing Alan Wake.
I understand that all controllers break, and 3rd party controllers never last as long as an official Microsoft controller, but I only put on an average of 1 or 2 hours per week playing games on my Xbox 360 using this controller, and most of the time I use my Xbox 360 to watch movies/shows etc. A few months of light usage was not really what I had in mind when I made the purchase. With that said, this controller was really much easier on my hands. I liked it while it lasted.
The range of control, even at sensitivity 1, pretty much goes from nothing, to 75%, to Full. There is almost no control for slight analog movements while aiming.
Other than that, it's great.
UPDATE: (First review was 4 stars) Controller is DEAD. The right trigger button stopped working and would fire itself when not pressed. The next day all buttons ceased to operate. My guess is there is a short in the cord. Controller lasted 3 months with weekend play only.
