They feel pretty good int he hand, though they're far, far lighter than the official 360 controllers. The see-through plastic is very reminiscent of old-school N64 controllers, which can be off-putting, but they make very good PC controllers-Unlike knockoff PS3/PS4 controllers they are supported on Windows the same as a 360 controller, so they'll work for pretty much any game you throw at it.
Build wise they last about as long as a twenty-dollar controller will. My first one crapped out on me after six months, not because of any busted sticks or buttons, but because the wire near the extender-clip at the end of the controller is damaged. The 'X' symbol on the guide button is also not an actual plastic button, but a stick-on-label that peeled off from constant use. The button underneath isn't sharp or anything though, and works exactly the same, so it's strange they even put the microsoft logo on.
The controller itself is sensitive but not too sensitive, and feels good in the hand. it vibrates pretty strongly. The cord is very long(just skirting the edge of too long if you're using a laptop/PC instead of sitting across the Tv from a couch.
The colors are great since everyone has their own controller. No more fighting over that one or this one. Kids can quickly tell which one it theirs and better yet, they don't use mine!
Pros: Good alternative vs name brand.
Cons: Joy sticks are a hard plastic and can be rough on your thumb in games like NHL
The PC button mapping is TERRIBLE.
A little bit more specific about the PC button mapping issue. Whenever you plug it in and the computer gets the driver for it, it maps certain buttons to numbers. Games that don't automatically detect it as an xbox controller will use those button mappings to determine which buttons controls This isn't a problem for the four face buttons which are the first four mapped. Then LB is 5, RB is 6, still not problems. Then select and start are mapped as 7 and 8. That is a problem because most games use button 7 and 8 and have them mapped. Another problem is that the joy sticks are mapped as a button that when you press down on them. This is an absolutely huge issue in one game I played (NHL 09) because accidentally clicking the joy stick button pulls your goalie off the ice. (For those of you who aren't hockey fans, that's a generally bad thing in the middle of a game that will cause huge amounts of rage.) I ended up getting around this by using software that takes controller movements and converts it to what the computer recognizes as keyboard buttons being pressed. It removes the game killing rage causing part, but it only gives me the same accuracy the keyboard has, which isn't great. My friend has a name brand xbox controller and doesn't have this problem. There is also no updated drivers or anything that fix this and no way to remap the actual buttons that I have found.
Summary: If this controller is only for xbox 360, I highly recommend it. If you are mainly planning on using this on newer PC games or don't care about issues like I said, this controller is excellent. I am happy with the controller and have used it on many games without issue, so from what I have seen it's not an issue that pops up a lot, but feel I have to mention it in my review. Based on the mapping issue and lack of drivers, I can't give it five stars based on the PC part of it.
