Xbox Controller with Play and Charge Kit
I bought this controller for myself and everything seemed to be working great. I then realized the poor battery life of the battery pack that comes with the controller. It was pretty disappointing but nontheless it saves me a lot of money throughout the year so im not complaining. Definately pays for itself
this design was great the rotating d-pad is much better then the original d-pad i cant use the old one anymore the rotating is much more responsive
Awesome Controller! Although...
This controller package is absolutely amazing. I like the way the joysticks feel on my thumbs. I like the paint job, as well as the 'transforming' D-Pad. There is only one problem that I know of so far. That is when you are in a chat (Party, Private, Game), and you decide to charge your controller while you are chatting, there is an absolutely annoying buzzing noise that is created by the charger. This noise can be heard by you, as well as the other person(s) in the chat. This buzzing noise gets me kicked out of Xbox Live Parties a lot. That is the only bad thing about this Play & Charge Kit. But that shouldn't stop you from buying this product. It is absolutely amazing. This controller package is a must-buy if you want a stylish controller, and if you want to save money by not having to constantly purchase AA Batteries.
I loved it but now I regret wasting money for it
Ive heard good reviews about this controller and I dedided to pick one up for myself. Took a 3 hour bike ride to Best Buy to buy one and I thought it was awesome. I loved the interchangable D-Pad, the smooth thumbsticks, the silver and grey buttons, and the matte silver paintjob. But almost 2 weeks after buying one the paint started chipping and fading away. I was really dissapointed about this and now I regret buying one of these. I couldn't take it back to Best Buy because I got rid of the receipt, so I took the silver and grey buttons and the thumbsticks off of it and put them in my black xbox controller.
I was greatly pleased with this for the first few months I had it. Now, the vibration is slowly starting to stop working. I haven't damaged it thrown it, anything. Overall it's not worth the purchase. I'm greatly disappointed with this controller.
It did not matter which way you switched it, the D-Pad did not work very well at all. There was no difference from a regular controller. I do not recommend it at all. They need to test their products before they put them out on the market.
Love the colors and the chrome d-pad, nice feel on the analog sticks, when you buy it make sure the charge kit light is red which indicates it is charging
Pretty good controller but one problem....
I got his controller at my local gamestop. When I first tried it out i loved it. Then a few times later i noticed something. I can't play without it being charged. If I took the charger out it would turn itself off. I dunno how to fix it and I know some people that have that problem too. Otherwise, if you don't care about the charge and play and just want a controller this is a great choice! I love the color scheme (its really cool). The transforming d-pad is pretty cool but i don't really understand why you would really want to change it but its a cool feature.
Perfect Xbox Controller
This is probably the best Xbox 360 controller I've ever held in my hand. The transforming D-Pad makes for amazing accuracy, perfect for side-scrolling platformers such as Mortal Kombat and Castle Crashers. The unique controller design is simply astounding; a perfect combination of shiny polished black streaks, a chrome D-Pad, mono-themed XYAB buttons, and a beautiful silver finish on the controller. This controller is completely improved from the stock Xbox 360 controllers and makes a very useful companion for Xbox gamers, hardcore and casual! I highly recommend this to anyone who wants an amazing Xbox 360 experience. Cheers!
I've bought this maybe about a year ago and its nothing short of amazing. So far, I've had NO problems and even with third party batteries, I still have great feedback from the control. Anyone that needs a new controller should get this one and make it their primary.
