Pros

Cons

  • The problem is the cable connects to the controller with a micro USB plug, which is extremely fragile, and if you are in the slightest bit rough with it, or even just turn it the wrong way, the small pins connecting to the circuit board inside break which renders the controller useless.Ed1972

    Really Impressed with PDP Afterglow on this one..

    I wasn't even looking to buy a new controller when I walked in until I found this gem. This Afterglow controller has the same design as the Microsoft controllers. If you've ever used the previous Afterglow controllers, you'd know they were made a bit smaller than the original and felt kind of cramped, but not this one. This one feels lighter due to not needing any batteries as it is a wired controller and includes a detachable 10ft cable. Fully customizable and can be set to any color you choose. You no longer have to search for your favorite color because they're all included! For headsets, it does not have a USB port, so you will need to use a 3.5mm jack connection. The controller also has a built in game/chat volume control on it. Also includes 2 buttons in the back for further customization. Each 'jog-wheel' can be remapped to do up to 3 actions for a Scuff-like experience. Lastly, a $10 off coupon to use on the PDP website was included in the box. All these features for the $50 price tag was a steal. If you don't care about it being wired pick this up! GO GET IT! Stop reading this and go purchase! NOW!

    Not for me.

    This is a smooth looking product. Just not my 'cup of tea', if you will. Two things: 1) The unit doesn't have a good tactile feel to it. The shell is clear hard plastic and your hands can get a little clammy from intense gaming over a short period of time. 2) Unbeknownst to me in my research of the controller were the two small underside wheels which aid flexibility in assigning functions to/from other buttons or bumpers. These wheels are somewhat annoying to your grip of the controller. They tended to chafe my fingers and caused an unwanted distraction. The wheels also have a tiny protruding 'nub' in the middle which will irritatingly bug you to the point where you will return the unit from whence it came sooner than later. That said, it is a good looking unit with several lighting features and a removable USB power cord which the 360 model does not have. Would have given it three stars had I kept the controller. Would recommend on the condition you read the above.

    Some flaws in design

    est.. 2-3 months of use. The controller itself seems to function fine. There's an app you can download that allows you to customize buttons, colors, vibration, etc.. The wire is where I run into issues... Traditionally with Wired controllers there has been an extension at the end of the chord to connect to the Xbox via USB. With this controller specifically the whole chord is one piece connected by mini USB at the top of the controller and USB at the end to plug into the Xbox. This connection tends to come loose OFTEN on the controller side causing the controller to lose power. I give this a Very Generous 3 stars only because it's a good day and the customization is a nice touch. Recommend for local play with a guest. I wouldn't take this controller online. Pro tip -- As long as you stay very still while gaming you should be fine... but where's the fun in that?

    Requires App, Lame Default Color Settings

    Controller is built pretty solid. My A button stopped working after a week of heavy use. The instructions inside the box link to an app that isn't available as of the beginning of Feb 2016. The default color setting is for one static color that can be dimmed, meh, super boring. The controller can then cycle through all the colors which is cool, but still pretty lame. No option for the battery means you have to use the super duper cheap micro usb cable that it comes with. Decent length for a stock cable, but the connector became loose after only 2 weeks of heavy use. Not super heavy, decent size for adult hands, but pretty slippery after lots of intense use. Cool for approx. 1/2 day. Will not purchase again.

    Great Looking 2nd Player Controller

    I was in the market for a second controller so that I can play Cuphead co-op with my little girl. She's seven, so having the regular Xbox One controller is not as exciting as having this LED clear controller. She's able to have a little bit more pride in owning this and will take care of it better than she would if it wasn't her own. No issues so far but we haven't yet explored the programmable buttons on the back either. I'm sure they won't be a problem when it comes time to use them. If we have no issues with this one, I just might pick up one of my own.

    I will say I came to this controller only after another branded wired controller failed me, but so far it has worked very well. The colors are real nice. The app was easy to use for color customizations and button mapping. The "6" extra buttons were a little weird since they were really only 2 wheels that had 3 functions each depending on which way you pushed them including pushing them in. The analog sticks feel comparable to the genuine Microsoft controller, but definitely not as nice as the elite sticks. I think this is a good choice being a little cheaper, customizable, and looks good too. If you can deal with a wire, this is a good purchase.

    Within 2 days, the right stick became "springy" for lack of better words and was hanging up, making holding a position very difficult. Also the rear programmable rockers are very poorly designed. As the push function barley works as intented. It does have a convenient app for storing different profiles and button configurations, but with poor designed programmables, this controller fails. Game 1 to 3 hours, about 5 days a week.

    We have used a number of aftermarket controllers over the years. This is by far the best. Very durable. My son uses it every day. Ridiculously easy to use out of the box. There are so many combinations of colors you can choose from for customization. There is even an app you can download onto you Xbox to change the controller and it is very easy to use. It has a 10ft cord so no more buying loads of batteries for me! It has programmable buttons. The thumb sticks have amazing action and feel very secure. Very awesome controller.
