This review is from: Afterglow AX.1 Controller for Xbox 360 - Blue (Video Game)
before placing my order for this controller i did a lot of research. i looked at video reviews and read online reviews about this product; and what it all came down to was the joy sticks. everyone said that it was difficult to aim when playing fps's. i play halo and CoD and i have to say i noticed what they were talking about. the sticks aren't as sensitive as Microsoft's controllers where just a slight push of the stick will move your reticle very slowly. this doesn't bother me. maybe i have to push the stick a little further but as long as you do it slowly there is no problem. i have zero problems sniping with this controller. i am also in LOVE with the active setting. the LEDs flash whenever the controller vibrates, so whenever you shoot or get shot. the lights indeed are bright but are not distracting at all. i give the PDP AfterGlow a solid 9/10

Very informative. He gave a concise yet detailed account of his playing experience which I personally benefited from. Whether or not it influences my decision to purchase this item is yet to be determined.

I disagree with everyone's belief that this is a bad controller for FPS', I'd argue this is one of the best.

Reasons:
- It's a hardwired controller, giving almost no input lag.
- The sticks have a "lead-in" so to speak with aiming; if you can get a feel for it - your shots will be more accurate than you can handle.
- all of the buttons are extremely crisp and light with very precise triggers for shootin' (excluding the bumpers - those are the only buttons that feel "off" so to speak)

It may seem elitist but as a PC gamer who plays on an extremely high resolution 2560x1440 monitor regularly with a high DPI mouse/mechanical keyboard I can tell that this controller is simply THERE. Most people are used to wireless controllers which admittedly have some latency issues due to the nature of the device.. some changes are just too abrupt, but for me this is the best way to play on a console as it is, in my opinion, the closest thing to mouse/keyboard responsiveness you can get. Plus it looks cool.
