For the TLTR version scroll down to the bottom.
Right off the bat, controller feels 10x better than the standard Xbox one controller. Rubber grip feels great in hands and drastically reduces slippage if you have sweaty hands like me (yes I know, gross). From the ergonomics alone, it certainly feels like the hefty $150.00 price tag was well worth the quality. Then comes all the little gadgets you can add onto your controller to "optimize" your gaming performance. My opinion? a waste of materials I paid for that hardly ever sees usage. I've tried all the different attachments, from the 4 paddle to the 3 different sized extended analog sticks, none of them made me feel like I had in edge when playing Battlefield, Battlefront or other FPS shooters. In the end I just ditched the paddles since they got in the way of my grip and went with the standard sized analog sticks. They ONLY thing I switched was the D-Pad from the circular to the + D-Pad since I felt it gave a more positive click.
Hair Triggers; are they any good? Most certainly. I must say if there was one thing I could keep from this controller it’s the hair trigger feature. I already have fast trigger fingers as it is so giving me a hair trigger would simply squeeze out that last 8% of performance; that's just to putting it into perspective how effective these hair triggers are. These hair triggers aren't there to make you a pro gamer, but to aid you in quicker follow up shots, much like aim assist aids in your target acquisition. Of course if you're constantly playing games with full auto weapons then this feature is pointless. Hair triggers mostly apply to semi auto firing modes, much like many of the weapon in the current Battlefield 1 game.
Another important factor of this $150.00 controller... Does it hold up? Not as well as I expected but still usable without any major problems. After 1 year of usage, all buttons, triggers, bumpers and analog sticks held up good and feel just as crisp as when I used them day 1. However the controller has started to fail in certain places such as the rubber grips which appear they have lost some adhesion on the underside, as a result have begun to peel off. A quick spot of superglue should fix this problem but why should I have to on my $150 controller? Another thing, the seams of the controller are now more pronounced compared to how I first received it. Not a big deal but I felt it was worth mentioning.
So again, is it worth it for the $150.00 price tag? (now lower) as an FPS shooter and a person who is an avid gamer that probably puts more than 500 hours in games every year…..YES! but would I buy it again? Probably not, unless they lower it down around $80 to $100.00. I bought this controller with the same mentality you have when you’re buying a couch or chair. How long are you going to be sitting on it and see usage? Might as well make an investment if it’s something you constantly use. You know what they say buy once cry once. In the end you will be more comfortable with this controller that includes many features than you are with a standard controller.
Is it needed? No, and I am a testament to that answer. I can perform just as well with a standard Xbox One controller, so anyone going out buying this thinking they’re now gonna own newbs on Call of Booty are delusional and in for a big surprise. 100% of the attachments are preference and do not make any gamer “better”. The Controller is simply a tool, it’s the gamer that is behind it that matters.
‘TLTR’: Based on the first person shooter experience. Best feeling controller out on the market. Good for sweaty hands, held up decently after 1 year of heavy usage. Rubber grips are starting to peel off. Attachments like the paddles get in the way of grip, and the extended analog sticks don’t make much sense for FPS. Classic + D Pad is much more positive than circular version. Hair triggers are a plus if you use semi auto weapons in FPS. Is it worth $150.00? Make the decision as if you’re buying a chair for gaming. Are you going to be using it a lot (500hrs to 1000hrs a year)? If your answer is yes then it’s definitely worth it. If you’re buying the controller to improve your gaming performance you’re going to be disappointed. So will you buy the stool or the gamer chair? Both do the same thing, allow you to sit. What matters is how comfortable you want to be, and that’s exactly what this controller is about.
If it matters to anyone, because of all the reasons I mentioned, my rating is a 3.5 but lean more towards a 4 star. Far from perfect but definitely an improvement on the original Xbox One controller.
This occurred a few weeks after the 90 day warranty. I went through the motions of contacting Microsoft knowing full well they have zero obligation to do anything. If you live near a Microsoft Store - don't bother going there other then to complain as they do not repair controllers despite what customer support will say online or over the phone.
This is essentially a repeat of the "Red Ring of Death" we had with X360s. It is a design flaw that Microsoft will eventually fix and admit to but not after several years.
My advice when purchasing this:
1) It is a good controller when it works.
2) Understand that despite its price it is not a premium made product.
3) Strongly consider an extended warranty with purchase. I'd go for several years if possible.
4) Without warranty contact your Credit Card company if it breaks. Almost all major CC (VISA, Master card, Discover, Amex, etc...) have free buyer protection that usually extends the warranty of a product for an extra year. You will have to jump through a few hoops and provide documents (receipts, CC statement with purchase, proof that the device cannot be repaired, etc..). Note: this is why I contacted Microsoft. Do this over the Web and take a screen capture of their rep saying they can't repair it - that is usually all you need to prove that repairing the controller will cost you a new one.
5) If you live in the EU I hear there are laws that provide 2 years warranty - nice!

And I’ll probably buy it again when it breaks.
