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.Read more ›
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!
