Despite its tad high of a price, i decided to grab one along with the firetv. and now im pretty sure i'll pick up another so my wife and i can have at it to settle arguments.

I was always partial to the xbox styled controllers, never liked the playstation design. So this was perfectly natural to use.

Pros
-Feels quality
-takes AA batteries(i have tons of rechargables, some people may not like this)
-Sleeps to conserve energy, wakes up with a press.
-no wires(kinda implied for any game system in 2013+
-Pairs damn quick and easily

Cons
-it should be $5 cheaper. I know, 5 bucks isn't big, but i think many of those who see it as overpriced would have not thought so with a number like $35 instead of 40
-Has dead zone, see below

overall, if you're of those who hope amazon does make this into a half decent gaming machine, it's a no brainer. I don't think anyone should have the expectation that this will replace an xbox or PS, but it looks to be just what i want, a media box which also does a pretty good job at gaming

Vs Xbox/playstation
Something to think about: This system with 1 remote costs $140. A new xbox 360 4gb E costs only $40 more and is a more serious gaming machine that also has streaming abilities... But then again you'll need the $60ish xbox live service to get full functionality... but then again amazon prime is $99 to add some functionality to the firetv. I wonder now if that prime membership includes the use of online multiplayer games or if that's free...

++UPDATE:
OK, here's hoping amazon improves this, but the controller has a significant analog stick dead zone. What that means is that moving the analog stick a little bit doesn't do anything, you have to move it a lot.

Format: Electronics Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
A lot has been written about the Fire TV, with most of it emphasizing the media aspects. I gave it a 5 star review the first week I had it, and would still give it the same.

I also bought a controller at the same time, thinking it would be great to play games that were engaging but not expensive, fun but not so immersive they take over your life.

Amazon provided a controller for review purposes as well, meaning I now have 2. What I like about it is it really does provided added enjoyment to the Fire TV. If you are at all interested in the gaming side of it, then getting a controller is a very worthwhile step. That being said, there's nothing about this particular controller that stands out and indeed the price is a bit high for the features.

If you have any experience with game consoles over the last decade, or more, this controller will feel very familiar. It's a bit larger and more angular than the XBox 360 controller, but the button setup is almost exactly the same. I find that after playing a while my hand starts falling asleep, no doubt because it is less rounded and so puts more pressure on the hand.

Bluetooth controlled, and very responsive, so it definitely works well. But no added features or capabilities. No rumbling or headphone/microphone inputs (which would be good for potential headsets for multiplayer games). I don't care much about those but I would have really liked motion detection of some kind, which is standard in tablets and smartphones, and as such used by some android games. That would have justified the higher price.

As far as games, the library of really good games is small. Sev Zero is indeed pretty fun, and when I bought the controller I got that and 1000 amazon credits as a "free" bonus. The hope, and expectation, is that the game library will grow not only in size (there really are a lot of games) and in depth, with high quality games making the controller even more necessary.

been using this controller for a few months and its right side joystick sticks causing a constant downward movement almost all the time unless you put slight pressure on it. makes it very hard to scroll through the menus or play games on amazon fire tv. this is the second controller ive bought through amazon (dog ate first one). but first one did it as well. There is no option to calibrate the joystick at all either. After reviewing others comments on this it seems like it was a common issue with the controllers that were sent out around that time. I buy alot of stuff on amazon and alot of amazon brand things and usually pretty good. I reduce my rating to one star after amazon sent me a message to try and troubleshoot my controller... while not just offering to a replacment (considering many controllers of that time frame were sent out and experience the same problem).

When I saw the controller I wondered how comfortable it would be to have the thumbsticks offset where one is higher and more outer and one is lower and more inner. Same with the AXYB buttons compared to the + section.
Once I got it my concerns were confirmed. It just feels like I'm holding the controller wrong or off center.
Also, the ends of the controller are squared off weird and not comfortable.
I'm an adult female, 5' 4 1/4" with um, I guess averaged size hands.
For $99 (Kindle Fire TV) + $40 (minus $17 in free games) for the controller, I guess overall it's not a bad value for an electronic frivolous/luxury (non-necessity) gadget, but I wouldn't diss or recommend the game controller. I think they could have done better, and it's definitely not ergonomic, and once the promotion goes away, I really don't think it's worth $40 by itself.
