The feel was OK, looks were nice but there are some major issues. The joystick clicking is a lot harder and the bumpers are a bit awkward, neither of which had a huge impact on my decision to return it.
The main problem I had with this controller is the joystick sensitivity. And not the kind you can fix by changing the sensitivity in your game. The problem is when you try to move just a little to the left when your aiming down the site about to blast some poor guys head off... you move the joystick just a little and your sites don't move at all, WTF. So you move the joystick a little farther and it jumps to the other side of the guys head and now your back where you started but on the opposite side.
If you don't play FPS's. And the games you do play don't require you to move ever so slightly in any direction then this controller just might work. Or if you ever play against your friends on the same console you could let them use this one while you use a controller that works and destroy them. =P
1st its kinda noisy (personally I don't like that) when pressing the buttons the click quite loud, compared with an official MS Xbox360 controller
2nd sometimes I have to unplug and plug again the controller because it doesn't work, that is quite a bother.
Aside those issues i mentioned i'm pleased with the controller, it's confortable to grip and works exactly like an MS controller, would recomend the buy only if you can overlook the cons I mentioned above.
Controls work great, buttons are easy, grip is comfortable. The cord is a lot longer than I had even hoped, so that's a plus. All in all a great controller for the price, I just wish they had used some tinted plastic to keep the lights from being too bright.
I gave the thing to my neice. I recommeded her putting stickers over where the lights are. I think my pupils are contracting in defense just thinking about the thing...
Quality seems good for the price and I haven't had any issues. There is a loose piece of soder bouncing around inside the case (probably loosened during shipping) but there are no effects on the controller.
The red afterglow looks cool and you can disable if you want. Not as good as an official XBox controller, but I bought this one because it was half the price and does what I need it to do.
Anyway, it kept disconnecting, and I've tried everything, it's pretty and all, I hope they make it last a bit longer. I may think about getting another one, but I am not sure if I want to recommend this to anyone that's looking for a controller that lasts really long, but I guess four years isn't bad. I know nothing lasts forever, but I was a bit upset when my controller wasn't working, but I don't regret buying it. ;; The one I got was brand new and it worked really well, unlike the controllers people got, that really sucks. ;; I hope they at least got a new one or their money back.
Anyway, if you are looking for something a bit more cheaper I recommend this one, but you get what you pay for. I mostly played this on my PC, but I did play it a couple of times on an xbox. Overall, it's pretty good. I guess it depends on whether they give you a faulty controller or not, I got lucky, and sometimes I don't. So it depends on them, and sometimes I feel like it's the people's fault that pack these controllers up and send it to us.
I hope anyone who buys this gets a good one that won't break all fast like in two weeks or something.
