I purchased this controller specifically for my girlfriend who has made complaints about thumb cramping when using a standard sized controller, so covering the size reduction first - it really is quite a bit smaller. When you read 15% you may think that isn't much, but you'll see in the pictures it's quite a difference! She says it's alleviated the strain, so as far as that goes, better than expected results. The ergonomics and button placement (note the much flatter bumpers and triggers, and position of Back and Start being above the Guide button) are different from a normal layout, but feel nature after a single 30 minute play session.

All of the buttons articulate well, with the face buttons not feeling as "squishy" as a first party controller, and the triggers having a shorter travel range yet still feeling tactile despite that. The joysticks have excellent unobstructed and uniform feedback in their movement, and the joystick button (clicking the sticks down, L3 and R3) always work as intended regardless of the stick positioning. This is perhaps due to the complete absence of a dust-cover, as you'll see in my pictures... which is cause for concern when thinking about the longevity of this device... but no way to know about that for now.

The finish is a nice flat powder finish, contrary to the high-gloss seen in the manufacturer photos - was very happy to find this out. The little rubber grips added to the side, and the texture on the rear are nice touches for ergonomics and grip. Definitely noticeable in the feel of the unit in hand, not just superficial.

The turbo functionality seems to work as intended.... excluding the input you are most likely to want it for, the triggers.

I am an adult and like the feel of this controller. The size is a preference thing, but I do have "smaller" adult hands. Younger players (kids under 10) I have given this to find the controller easy enough to handle. The rubberized portions also help the grip on the controller compared to a standard XBox controller. I also like the "triggers" on this a bit more than the regular one. What I feel to be the "extra curve" on them seems to help get more precision in the throttling of various racing games.

I was disappointed when the left thumbstick popped straight off the metal rod that it was sitting on within the first 48 hours of ownership. I suppose I could super glue it on, but I'm sure it was just a factory mistake.

Overall, I would recommend this controller to someone else who either feels the standard XBox controller is "a touch too bulky" or someone buying a controller for young players. I personally prefer this sized controller over the standard sized controller.
________________________________________________________

UPDATE after three months of ownership:
* After a few weeks of use the right thumb stick "broke"...the connecting portion under the thumb contact pad actually cracked during use. I have since super glued BOTH thumb sticks on carefully while not upsidedown in order to not let the super glue go down into the controller. I wish someone would have told me right off the bat to use a little super glue to seal the thumbsticks right when I received the controller. I recommend doing this!
* Also the "A" button is starting to stick a little. If I'm using it repeatedly, sometimes it doesn't come back up and drags against the hole it goes down into. Which causes problems during gaming.
...so, I dropped the stars from Four to Three. I hope this controller does not continue to degrade over the next few weeks. It only gets used an average of about two hours a week anyways.

I required a lighter gamepad because of Fibromyalgia/fibromyositis. Microsoft gives little thought to gamers with smaller/weaker hands, such as children (whom video games were created for!), women, and people with disabilities. We have to get decent gamepads from 3rd parties.

The wonderful Gameshark 360 MicroCon was discontinued.
I waited years for it to be re-issued. Now, it's back, but Madcatz has changed the design.

Positive: The Start and Select buttons that were flat on the original and difficult to press have been raised.

Negatives: The Gameshark Microcon had rubber analog sticks. The new Madcatz controller has hard plastic analog sticks with 4 nubs along the rim to "aid friction". I find the nubs painful, and think they should've stuck with rubber analogs. A friend says I may be able to file down the nubs.
- As others have noted, there is no guard beneath the analog sticks. You can see the motherboard. This was not the case with the original design. On the previous model, the guards acted as door-stop like cushion to prevent overextending the analog sticks. When you press the sticks far on this Madcatz version, it seems they might snap off. The sticks are WAY too skinny.
- The Gameshark MicroCon had a silky rubber finish all the way around. The new model has this silky finish only on the top half to cut costs. It's stupid, because it's the BOTTOM HALF that we grip!
- The Ring of Light on the controller is too bright and distracting. I'm gonna cover it with something.

I am grateful to have this gamepad available again, but hate the changes. I recommend examining it in a store before buying. Maybe buy the old model used. If you can't, just know they changed it.

The Gameshark logo on top has been replaced with a Madcatz logo. That's how you tell the difference.
