Xbox 360 Controller RockCandy
I'm sure with every controller the sticks wear out at different rates. Although with this controller, the left stick won't stop moving me backwards, despite not actually being back. It will actually even register me as moving backwards while I am moving forward, resulting in me moving forward at the slowest pace. I have taken it apart twice and changed where I plugged it in 3 times, and the problem persists. Other than that, it's a controller, but it has lasted 1/10th the time all my others have.
I find this remote to be quite amazing, and at an affordable price. These look magnificent and are definitely eye catching. It took a bit getting use to the analog sticks because they don't move quite as smoothly as, say, the remote that came with your xbox, but I don't find that to be a problem. I have read other people's reviews and a lot of them said that mics don't seem to work with these remotes. I haven't personally used a mic with this because I don't care to chat with people on xbox live, but my brother has and he hasn't complained to me about it. I have had my remote for about a year now, with hardly a problem. The only thing that bugs me is that, every once in a while the "B" button would get a little sticky when I first pick up the remote, but this hasn't happened to me in several months. Overall, this product is amazing and is definitely worth the money. I would recommend this remote to all my friends, and to anyone on here who is looking for a sleek looking and affordable remote for their xbox. WARNING: You should not buy the PS3 version of this product, unless the design has since been fixed.
I'm really displeased with this controller. I wanted a wired controller... And the colors were cool... Plus, it was 20 bucks. Why not? So, I bring it home... The xbox logo in the middle of the controller is crooked... Well, that's annoying, but I don't really look at the controller while I play so, whatever... It works great on some rpgs... A couple months later, I'm in the mood for a FPS... So, I pop in Halo, and.... The right d-pad button DOESN'T WORK. I pressed it like 20 times and figured out that it works, but only at a certain angle? The left works fine so I know it's just a faulty product. So I either have to stand there, getting shot, trying to figure out how to press it ~JUST~ right or have COMPLETELY HORRIBLE AIMING... I didn't have any issue with the controller working with my headset.... However, I just bought a chat-pad and it DOESN'T FIT... So, that's why I'm here after all these months... I'm over it. Just spend some extra money and get something better. It's not worth the headache. I wish I could return mine, but unfortunately it's too late. I wanted to give this controller a chance, I really did... But it's junk.
Not for online gamers
good quality and nice look with one big fault, it wont work with mics. i bought one and didn't work, took it back to get another but it didn't work either. so if you're looking to get it for offline it works just fine but i would advise a different choice of controller for online play.
Good for PC gamers look into a gamepad
I don't actually own an X-Box, I bought this solely as a game-pad for my PC, It works nice for all the games I've used it for so far, as a matter of fact its the only way i can play arcade style games like super meat boy and castle crashers, mouse and keyboard are still superior in the FPS section, but it does what i want it to do and that's good.
Works, but that's about it.
These controllers look nice and they work as a gamepad for PC gaming (which is why I bought it). However, for games that require reflexes like shooters, it may not be your best choice. The control sticks don't have a non-slip surface on them and are instead hard plastic, and they are also kind of stiff, causing some serious over-correction in aiming until you get used to the feel. The mic port makes my Turtle Beach headset sound tinny when it comes to chat.
the colors for this product are absolutely amazing. play games in style.
it would make a great gift for kids or those video game loving adults.
Broke within 3 weeks
I bought this remote, took excellent care of it, barely used it, and there's already a short in the wire, this morning it was barely working and now it wont turn on.
best gaming controller
I love rockcandy brands and i really love these controllers! They are fast, and they are very accurate! You are not making a mistake if you buy them!
I bought two of these controllers and right away I could tell they wouldn't last because one of the mic ports didn't function. But they were cheap so I didn't complain. It has been a month since then and all of a sudden after I move the cord my Xbox says they are unplugged and this became a problem real quick. I highly recommend getting another controller.
