Purchased for use with a computer, for certain games like fighting games.
I originally wanted one of the Tron XBox360 controllers, but those were limited edition, sold quickly, and are now at outrageous prices, so I settled on this one.

Controller feels very sturdy. The plastic feels much thicker than you think. Buttons all felt nice, and clicked nicely. The analog sticks felt nice. The D-pad isn't the greatest, but that's because it shares the design with the Microsoft XBox360 D-pad, and none of them feel really nice, at least not as comparable to the Nintendo D-pad.

I have no intentions of using it for FPSs, so I can't tell you how the analog sticks function for that.

Plugged it right into my computer (running Windows 7 Professional) and it was recognized, and drivers automatically installed. I didn't have to install anything manually.

The lights are very bright. The controller looks good, but in the dark with darker games, you might be distracted. The setting button for the light is recessed on the back, about under your ring finger. It's not obtrusive, and you won't press it accidentally.

The settings for the lights are kept even if your computer is reset. If you have the lights turned off, they will blink once when the computer reboots, and it is initialized, but it will remain off. So if you keep this plugged in all the time, you won't have to worry about having to turn the lights off every time you reboot your computer.

I don't have an XBox360 or use the regular controller, so I can't tell you long-term how the position of the start and back buttons feel in relation to that one, but the ones on this one are in a comfortable position, save for the back button.

I personally bought this controller for 2 reasons:
1. I needed a new controller
2. It was fairly cheap!

However, please keep in mind this is a 3rd party controller. The most unique function of this controller, and the reason to why I bought this in the end, was thanks to the blue LEDs inside the clear controller. The button to turn on/off the LEDs in the controller are located in the back of the controller, near the grip. It's a tiny black button that has a few settings: On, Off, and Vibrate (every time your controller vibrates, the LEDs will flash. Pretty cool in my opinion)

And yes, this works with PC games and/or PC use (with the proper program for PC use) But most games will come with gamepad ready features, allowing you to just plug in and play. I have used this feature and found it awesome to play L4D2 and Saints Row 3 on my PC with this controller!

I liked this controller and it lasted for a good year before I faced any problems with it. As the year went on, I slowly noticed the left thumbstick's skin was peeling off, and I eventually had too pull it off, shortly after that, the thumbstick slowly broke apart piece by piece upon use, leaving a weird crescent shaped skinless analog stick. Now I did get used that personal problem, but alas the day I feared most had fallen upon me: The day the USB wire got weakened. This had happened to my previous wired controller, so I wasn't caught off guard. Note: The controller still works, but if you have random movement while using the controller (for example, moving the wire a bit too much) it will disconnect!

This is my experience, but I am sure this problem is not likely to happen as often.
If you like unique controllers and/or awesome blue LEDs,yet are willing to take the slight risks along the way, this is for you!

I have always loved these afterglow controllers! I own 2 now. I have had my first one for 4 years now! And it still works perfectly! So dont worry about the durability, because these things last forever! So i bought another one so me and my wife can play games together. I use this controller on my PC and i highly recommend this!!!

My teenage boys use these Afterglow wired controllers for the xbox 360. They both play a lot of Call of Duty and say that these controllers are right on the mark for shooting, stop when they are supposed to and go when they should. One has large hands, the other has smaller hands and they both say the grip is fine (not bulky). One had a Rock Candy controller before this and says the Afterglow is way better in comparison (doesn't feel cheap). I have 2 of these controllers for the xbox in the family room because I got so tired of spending money on rechargeable batteries and chargers that kill the batteries for the wireless controllers. My oldest son liked them so much that he asked for the red Afterglow controller for his xbox in his bedroom. I've seen some of the reviews knocking these controllers and I don't understand unless maybe they got a defective controller...but a few I've seen have nitpicked at the joysticks or buttons (they just don't like them). As long as they function like they are supposed to during game play and fit your hands for comfortable game play, they are doing better than the wired xbox controllers and way better than brands like Rock Candy!

Sturdy and Well-Made Wired Controller that looks really cool. We got the blue one and when lit it looks really cool. It is completely transparent so the colored lights really light up the space. My son who is 8 is in love with it. We prefer the corded over the cordless controllers, they just seem to last longer and function better. This is a great value compared to other controlers in this price-point it is a really nice one. We are very happy with it and would recommend it at this point based on our personal experience with it. If at any time in the future our experience differs from that of my initial review I will update it. I too rely heavily on your reviews when purchasing on Amazon, if you have found my review helpful please click Yes under this review to let me know. Thanks!
