Not really that good

Strengths of the product

Feels great Awsome customisation software

Weaknesses of the product

Not actually and Xbox controler replacement won't work with many AAA titles and frankly my whole steam library is 50/50. When contacted their customer service response was "It just wont work with some titles." This makes it an overpriced paperweight compared to an Xbon One controler.

Additional Comments

Buy an Xbox controler to play PC games.

Weaknesses of the product

Do not buy. The last one broke - inside on of the directional pads broke so i couldn't go "right". It is the only piece of equipment that has ever failed and I go back to commodore 64 days. Stay away from this garbage because that is what you are buying. Not a deal even at half the price. Pay more and get another ,manufacturer.

Strengths of the product

It is very comfy and nice feel to it. But this is very minor as most controllers are good in that regard.

Weaknesses of the product

It is so funny to me that the description of this product features "INSTA-WIN RIGHT OUT OF THE BOX" as this controller does not work out of the box. In fact you have to really tweak the software configuration of this controller to optimize gameplay. And that being said, you typically have to ramp down a lot of sensitivity for the joysticks and sometimes the triggers which actually make this controller have major delay. It is the only way to use it without it automatically spamming certain inputs

Additional Comments

Do not buy this controller! Even on sale! Spend a little extra (or maybe less!) for a controller that will work out of the box with ZERO issues. I returned the first one thinking it was faulty after much testing and tweaking of the software. The second one I got was just as bad!

Not really linux compatible

Strengths of the product

The controller is a great build, with an excellent D-pad. I bought it mostly to replace my Logitec controller, for playing SNES games, and the limited success I've had making it work, it has been quite good.

Weaknesses of the product

I haven't quite riddled out yet why it doesn't work, but it doesn't work. Emulation station is where I want to use it, but although it pairs with bluetooth to my Mint 18.1 system, ES never sees it at all. I CAN get it to work in Higan, but to the exclusion of all other controllers, which is problematic. Also, the home and select keys seem to map to super and backspace, and nothing else.

Additional Comments

It's a really NICE controller, but very limiting if you don't game on Windows® or Android™. I'm keeping it in hopes that someone writes a utility that brings it back to being a standard input device.
