Turbo Fire 2
on March 14, 2012
This has been about the most surprising product I have bought. After reading feed back some 1 star with a lot of complications to 5 stars which did not gave much info, I saw that the average was 2.5 stars overall due to problems with compatibility and issues with third party products.
I am sure you will read up on them all as I did but well I bought this due to price and the (wireless, turbo features) and yes it does both and does them with excellence.
3 things that almost made me cancel the purchase were:
1. no support for headsets or at least known issues with turtle beach products
2. feels cheap and uncomfortable
3. the software to program the controller does not work
After I got it, first thing I did was pull it out and found it seemed like those old age neo geo controllers, yes it does seem cheap and feels like a cheap toy, so point 2 is accurate except the part about the uncomfortable, I did not feel this.
The software product?? codejunkies did an awesome job the software is superb and yes ti works well with windows 7 both 32 and 64 version, no problem whatsoever the features are awesome and you can configure the controller to work as you want.
And the compatibility with headsets? none I did what was instructed, press back, select and home and then plug my turtle beach in and it work flawlessly, I get some bzzz sound when I turn on the "less recoil" feature but that's about it, nothing to discredit the product.
I played 3 games with it, ME3, BF3 and Borderlands, all work great, I used the features I needed and yes I was so surprised to think this product was not good due to the reviews and everything that was said. The wireless was a bit complicated to make it sync but after 3 attempts it works and now its working perfectly, the turbo and other features, yes they work like a charm, does it look and feel a bit cheap? yes it does lol specially with the lights, the horrible home button and other things but are you going to buy it for the looks? if not then I recommend it, it does the job and does it well.
