Side note of packing/shipping: the box for this was tossed into a shipping box that gave it about a 2" space around its perimeter. There was one air pack in the shipping box which left the device's box bouncing around inside it.
Try to write down the Koreans. Once weight of the pad itself is reasonable. ...

Once weight of the pad itself is reasonable. The material goes way beyond cheap. Ha ~~
The advantage of leg-pads are not visible anywhere.
And there is no way to know, maybe because I was not dwaetneunji connection.
in short ...
Why do we have to show a dramatic drop in prices.
I didn't rate it a 5 because I'm not a fan of the finish (100% smooth plastic), which slips in my hands more than I'd like, and because the D-Pad and buttons (it doesn't have triggers) feel cheaply made, even though they work well and are accurate. It's also too expensive for what it is. An $80 controller it should feel awesome - it doesn't. It feels like a decent $40 controller, definitely a step below an X-Box One of PS4 controller.
Overall I like the controller. It's decent, and based on reviews one of the few currently available MFi controllers with a decent D-Pad, but I'm not happy with the price. I'm currently looking for a second controller. If it were $30-40 I wouldn't have thought twice about buying a second one, but instead I'll be trying others instead of purchasing a second one of these.
Testing with Garou: Mark of the Wolves (a classic 2D Dreamcast fighting game), the d pad required VERY deliberate presses to execute moves. This was not the case in the arcades, on the Dreamcast, or even on the Neo Geo Pocket Color handheld. It becomes tiring and frustrating to watch smooth swipes transfer to mis reads or slow movements.
The Mad Catz Micro actually fared better, but neither was good enough for even casual play, so both were returned.
Overall, it's still a solid controller, but the price and hype is not justified. Keep waiting for a true MFI controller, folks.
Set up is a snap, it paired with my phone no problem. I've tried this with a few MFi-compatible games that I already have and have really enjoyed how this controller works with both classic 2D action/arcade games and 3D games. I haven't had any issues using the controller, although sometimes I had to mess with the in-game settings to get it set up properly. Now that I have this controller I see myself picking up some titles that just don't work well with touch screen controls like King of Fighters and platformers. The HORIPAD is a little more expensive than some of the other controllers on the market, but the quality here is equivalent to first party console controllers like the DualShock. Highly recommended!
- Mushy rubber dome switches under the triggers and buttons
- Super smooth & shiny finish on the body (abs plastic?) is not to my liking, feeling greasy.
- D-pad: very good.
- Analog stick: easy to slip, but sensitivity is okay.
- Grip: holds nicely. About the same size as Xbox 360 controller.
- Other: cheap plastic, but not too cheap enough to turn head away.
Real problem is that there aren't enough quality games designed to play with a MFI controller.
