Wii U Pro Controller - Blue
The controller itself works wonderfully but the quality control would seem a little off. The controller handles extremely well when it works and it is a very comfortable design, the clear design of the controller helps hide the fact that glossed and smooth plastic of the casing would likely mark up with finger prints like nintendo's 3ds and even the wii u game pad does.I would be scoring this controller much higher but like I said the companies quality control is a little off. I have owned the controller for three days and only played with the thing for about three hours before my controller's thumb stick, the left one, started reading the direction was towards me no matter what direction i actually pushed the stick. Be warned that this controller, though a bargain at it's price when it works, may not work for long if you ended up getting a lemon like i did. Having said that I am still likely to buy a replacement one in the future.
Pretty Good controller
For an off brand controller it is pretty cool, especially the light up part of the controller. It is as comfortable as the wii u pro controller. The set up is exactly the same. The battery life so far is as good as the wii u pro so far. I haven't had to charge this controller either. So if you want a good controller but save a little bit of money I recommend this controller. The controller is wireless.
I'm glad a afterglow controller is coming to the Wii U. I'm not sure why GameStop currently has a picture of a 360 afterglow controller. But I've seen the Wii U afterglow, both analogs are on the top just like the Pro controller by Nintendo. PDP controllers are the only off brand I get now. I've had 2 Wii afterglow controllers for almost 2 years, and I haven't had any problems with them. I've had a PS3 afterglow controller since christmas and haven't had any problems with it. So I'm trusting that the Wii U afterglow controller will work just as well. $40 is cheaper then $50, and glowing up makes it a whole lot better. I just hope they come out with more colors then blue. I recommend this big time.
This seems to be a solid controller thus far. Put about 10 hours into it and no problems. My only gripe is the button placement. Compared to a WiiU Pro, the right analog stick and the ABXY buttons are switched around. Not really a problem if you only game with that controller, but if you switch back and forth it's a bit annoying. On the plus side the buttons feel solid and respond well.
PDP's Wii U Pad isn't as good as other PDP gear.
I usually own all PDP accessories and controllers for a system and I can assure you that PDP is top notch. They are the only third party gear manufacturer I trust. What I'd say about these controllers is that the button layout is tiny and compact and the sticks are too sensitive. You can't play a decent game of COD with them because they are so touchy. The shoulder buttons are not snappy like most of their controller's shoulder buttons. While they are rugged and look and feel fine while not in play it doesn't translate well into any of the games I've played and would much rather use a Wii classic pro or Wii U Pro controller or the Gamepad itself.
The Controller is decent.
I've had the controller for about 3 months and I have been taking good care of the controller.I use it for Call Of Duty: Black Ops II and Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate and my controller joysticks are broken. My Left joystick doesn't make any clicking noise what so ever broke three times already, and when ever i go on and use my trigger buttons they make a weird noise near the bottom of my joysticks. At random times the controller would start to bug out when i play Call Of Duty: Black Ops II and would not stop unless i turn off my console. The controller is good but I have a lot of problems with the joysticks.
LOOKS NICE WITH THE LIGHTS
THERE NEEDS TO BE MORE PHOTOS OF THIS CONRTOLLER AND BY THE LOOKS OF IT, ITS WIRED. I'VE HAD GOOD EXPERINCES WITH AFTERGLOW PRODUCTS SO I WILL GIVE THIS SOME SERIOUS THOUGHT
