UPDATED REVIEW

After some haranguing and a few misfires Splitfish exchanged my crappy controller for a new one. That was in March 0f 2012.

The controller has worked flawlessly since then, (for over a year) through some marathon sessions. What ever was wrong has been fixed.

I can now say the review below is no longer applicable. Too bad they didn't get it right the first time.

OLD ORIGINAL REVIEW FOLLOWS:

Once again Splitfish has delivered a great idea made out of junk. I received the controller in August. It is now late October and is malfunctioning with the same symptoms as my previous Splitfish controller: i.e. the on-screen game character (I use it for Battlefield) is jammed and always slides to the left. My guess is a switch inside is stuck, or broken. Whatever.

I have never broken a controller, mouse, or keyboard. Yes this is my second Splitfish malfuntion in a year.

Years ago when Splitfish was American made, I bought the first controller. It served me faithfuly until Sony did a system upgrade and disabled it.

This product is built cheap by people who don't give a damn.

Don't waste your money.

I wore out my previous generation Shark; which lasted from when I bought it for the Pc (the Shark is awesome for PC games) until I caved and bought a PS3. So. I buy the Piranha here and it's at a great price and it get's here fast. The mouse is smaller than the Shark which was a plus for me. The mouse on the Shark was big but, still just as easily usable if you have mid to large hands. The mouse with the Piranha is sized more like every other computer mouse I've ever used. I quickly found the right settings for the games I play like MW2 and Deus Ex. The dial on the nunchuck is easy to fine tune when you change settings in game. The nunchuck feels exactly the same as the Shark. I use the Sharks mouse pad and it's a seamless transition. Oh yeah, and it doesn't need batteries and the cable is long. There's no spin wheel on the mouse; just a nice button in it's place. I wish I could get the tweak utility to work for Vista but, I manage well with the out of the box setup.

I've purchased at least 6 controllers from Splitfish over the years. The very first controller they made was the best. While the first controller they came out with lasted 6 months, I was willing to put up with the lack of quality. Now, I only get about 2-3 months out of one controller, and they changed the design for the worse. They are so large now, I can't get my hand around the controller. The controller disconnects often and the calibration is crazy. I'll go into a game and it sticks to the left. I'll go back into the game and its sticks right. I try to use their tweak utility and it does not work. It worked years ago on XP, but these 32 bit and 64 bit are useless and virus-laden. DON'T FIX WHAT IS NOT BROKEN!

I have had this controller for a few months and could not play COD without it . My only complaints are the locations of the sensitivity switch and the button that you use to knife people . I have a tendency to move the sensitivity wheel when I am playing . The button you use to knife people is located right next to the start button . In the "heat of battle" I end up pausing the game instead of using my knife on someone . I would recommend this controller to anyone who is use to playing with a mouse or anyone who is not for that matter .

The product does what it says, if you are you use to using a mouse, this makes playing FPS the only way to go. I've owned 8 and purchased 2 sets last August and the first set stopped working within a month so went to my second set and it stopped working after 2 months. 2 months of playing of 60 hours of total play time. Build quality is not up to what you pay for so you have to weigh those options.

This feels in-game just like the Splitfish v.1 which was discontinued ages ago.
The physical build is like v.2 which had a terrible firmware/feel.
The nunchuck is way too big to grasp... i prefer the smaller one from the v.1 series.
Unlike the v.2 the Piranha is stripped of 1. sixaxis/motion controls 2. macro/program feature 3. a mousepad structure that they used to ship with. i guess the price of 49.99 is a good tradeoff for these extra things I never really used.

As usual... it's apparent that Splitfish makes very cheap products. Don't drop it and try not to get it dirty... I've used at least 4 v.1s and 2 v.2s previously and they have broken fairly quickly... from 6months to 1year. I hope the Piranha is different but I doubt it. Splitfish... it would help if you invested more money in making more solid and quality products.
*

Overall, for my purposes, this works GREAT with Black Ops and Modern Warfare... a must have for any ownage gamer. The firmware that it shipped with was great... very fluid movement. Feels and works like a mouse. I don't notice any twitchiness associated with the v.2 firmwares. I haven't tried any of the firmware updates (if there is) or any of the tweak utilities.

This works great for me. It's a simple product that works great with the one and only game that i play seriously - Call of Duty series ... MW2, Blackops, WaW... whatever.

I recommend getting a high quality gaming mousepad... as that is what i use on my desk!

Shipping was done very quickly as I paid for express shipping.

To conclude, I am happy, but I hope Splitfish will take more time to design better quality equipment, and that their customer service would be better (is Darrin the ONLY person on the roster? would be nice if you followed up/called back when you said you would).
