Great Controller Posted by: from: Lincoln, NE on Found this controller to be really nice in everything that a controller needs to do: it looks cool, plays well, and it goes multi-platform (Xbox to PC). I love the design on it, and I can see how the controller does the rumble feature through the see-through casing. I tested the controller on the following games: FIFA 11, Half-Life 2: Episode 2, Call of Duty 4, and Bulletstorm. Had no problems playing these games, except that I noticed the sticks being slightly sensitive while playing (mostly in Call of Duty 4), and needs a little getting used to some of the time. I'd consider this being pretty picky but the guide button and the bumper buttons could be of a slightly higher quality, but it doesn't really affect anything play-wise. Price is good too considering the Microsoft controllers are $50. Overall, I'm very glad I bought this and now have a controller for the PC.

good and inexpensive Posted by: from: Atlanta, GA on A lot of people on here are complaining about how the sticks are either not sensitive enough or are too sensitive, and exclaiming how they suck at COD/Halo/GoW now. The sticks are a little over sensitive, and that can easily be adjusted within the game itself. I've actually seen an increase in my gameplay in COD since I started using this. At first, I was turning too fast, and aiming was a pain, but I turned down the sensitivity, and now it's perfect. The buttons are a little off, but they're a little closer together than a Microsoft one, which is actually really nice once you get used to it. They also feel great when pushed. The perfect amount of resistance. Also, since it's wired, the actual reaction time on button presses seems to be pretty quick I haven't gotten a chance to test it on MK9 yet, but the D-Pad feels like it will be perfect, as it's not as disc-like as the standard MS controller. You can actually feel the cardinal directions much better. Another thing people complain about is how bright the lights are. Um... there's a switch on the back to turn those off. *facepalm* The only gripe I have is the plastic shell. It's really durable, but can be a little slippery. All in all, a great controller for the price.

Great Controller Posted by: from: Clementon,NJ on Very Please with the controller. This controler is very comfortable and very responsive and the lights are a very nice touch at night. Vibration feedback is good. Feals solid. I bought this considering i needed a controler for PC If you are going to use this on a PC. You might need to go to microsofts webpage for the driver download for windows 7 to get this to work. Or to the manufactors page. After that its all good. Its a pretty good price considering the regular xbox controler is expensive. Has very long cord makes it reach very far from tv. The lights are realy cool Overall This controler is a great bang for the buck and performs well..

Really nice, but flawed Posted by: from: Griffith, IN on I just got the controller recently and was very happy with the low price tag. The first thing i noticed about the controller was that it felt good in my hands, but was a little off. The layout of the buttons is off ever so slightly, just enough to become an annoyance if you play a lot. Also, the thumbsticks tended to dig into my thumbs when i played, the edges are much sharper than the ones on original controllers. The only other issue I had with it was that it was sitting on the chair when I got up for a minute, went back to playing and it vibrated for a split second and disconnected. Neither the usb or the breakaway connection was disturbed. After setting the controller back down to see if it had come slightly unplugged, it turned back on. Other than those 2 things, it seems pretty nice.

Awesome hard wired controller Posted by: from: delaware on I've used this controller for about 2 months now and I love it, light weight , no batteries or recharger needed, and of course you can make it light up in whatever color you want... great for kids much cheaper than microsoft versions .. and great for hardcore gamers as a hard wired connection will mean an immediate signal where as wireless has a slight delay reaction. Finally this can be a pro or a con depending on opinion but it feels a little looser around the joy sticks good for call of duty if you turn the sensitivity up and opposite if you prefer a slower controller movement.

Solid 3rd party controller. Posted by: from: Braintree, MA on I have been looking for a corded controller because I am sick of replacing batteries on my cordless one. Best Buy advertised this controller in their ad last week and I noticed it had received decent reviews so I deiced to pick one up. As any gamer knows it can be a roll of the dice buying 3rd party accessories, especially controllers. Usually with a 3rd party controller there is something off, the buttons are loose, the triggers feel funny or the d-pad feels cheap. The after glow controller stacks up pretty well overall against the Microsoft one. The controller feels solid and it is lighter than the cordless one because it has no batteries. All of the functions work well save for when you have to press the left analog (which I will go over below) stick down. The buttons, sticks and triggers work well, feel well, and function as they should. I played MW 2, NBA 2K10 and Read Dead Revolver and I have zero complaints about the function of the controller. As for the glowing aspect there are three functions which can be used. The first is on, meaning the controller glows at all times. Off, which means no lights at all, and effect, means the lights are off until the controller vibrates. There are a few cons though. The left analog stick is much tougher to press down than the Microsoft one. This is not a big deal in most games but when playing MW 2 it is a big aspect because you need this to run. My thumb was actually getting sore after about an hour. However I am hoping after the controller breaks in a little it will be easier to press the stick down. While the controller itself is solid the plastic they used is super smooth making it feel like at times it may slip out of your hand; especially if you get sweaty palms during long gaming sessions. The last point, which may not be a con to most, is that when buying this in the store the colors are random. I received a blue controller which would not have been my first choice. I don't know how bright the other colors are but the blue is super bright and is almost a distraction in a dark room. Overall I am pleased with this controller. While the hook of the product is that it glows and that you can see the insides it is 10 dollars (at the brick and mortar stores anyway)cheaper and it functions and operates as it should. Rating: 8/10

Always my favorite Posted by: from: on For PC games that are best played with a gamepad, this is always what I rely on. Standard Xbox 360 controllers have a weird [digital] stiffness/latency to their analog stick accelerations, whereas the Afterglow does not. Not only that, if your PC has lights to it, you can game in style.

Terrible Posted by: from: Chicago on I bought this controller because it looks awesome. The blue LEDs made it look really sick. It was also a nice cheap price of $30. Same shape and design as Microsoft's 360 controllers, besides start and select buttons, so it felt great. It really only had one issue to me, but let me tell you it was a huge one. They joysticks have terrible response. I move them a bit and no movement of my character, then a bit more and he moves too much. This controller isn't accurate or at all responsive. Maybe it isn't as big of a deal if you don't play shooters like me, because that is about all I play. I play a lot of COD and Halo, both in which require good accuracy to stand a chance in a battle, but this controller doesn't want to cooperate. Your cross-hair will no go were you want it easily.

Great Wired 360 Controller Posted by: from: on This was my first 3rd party controller in quite a long time and I have to say I'm quite pleased with it. I bought the controller for use with my PC and it works as advertised (plug and play). The blue lighting is pretty neat, but it gets a bit too bright in a darker room so I usually have it turned off. The controller isn't quite as comfortable as the Microsoft 360 controller (my favorite controller for comfort), but it's pleasant to hold and has a nice weight to it. Overall, this controller is an easy recommendation if your looking for something to use on your PC (I can't attest to it's usability on 360).
