    If you're like me, not wanting to spend an insane amount of money on official Xbox One controllers, do not turn a blind eye toward this controller. It is well designed, sturdy and responsive. No delayed input lag when gaming with my Cybertron CLX Windows 10 Gaming Desktop. I'm not into the After Glow RGB lighting but kids may find it cool. Even though I paid for the 2 year insurance protection for my last controller, which is the same design as my current controller, I'm confident it would have lasted longer than 2 years had it not been for my heavy handed 16 year old cousin. I told him he had nothing to prove playing Resident Evil 2 Remake because zombie games are definitely not his thing as he must have really tensed up, jamming the A button, while playing. lol. He is not allowed to use my controller as I have gotten him a cheaper controller to use. lol. Other than that, this controller is definitely worth the price.

    Since this is a cheap wired controller, I didn’t expect that it has a good quality. But it was just broken after two months with normal usage. One button cannot pop out. The product has a warranty to repair, exchange or even refund, so I submitted a request to find out that whether my condition is under warranty. But didn’t receive any response after two weeks which was promised as 5 business days. Really disappointed. Moreover, actually I bought two of these controllers with the same brand. The first one was broken before I opened the box. Nothing happened when I connected to the computer first time. So I recommend don’t buy any product under this brand. The quality is really bad.

    I bought this for use on my windows 10 computer and it was plug and play but to fully utilize the options of the controller I downloaded the software listed in the packaging. The colors are awesome and dimmable, plus you can make it white if you like. I really love this company and after having this for a while now, I am so glad I bought this one. It does what its suppose to, easy to use/setup and is aesthetically pleasing.

    My review Controller Good for not worry to charge xbox Controller all the time. That I used for A week works fine I got use to the setup. But my experience with Pdp wired controllers they hold up better than other third party brands. If your stronger person like me can easily Get the rb bummer button stuck or jam I fix it by pushing out with my finger Nail. Works well at A Good price but not feel as Strongly made as the Older Pdp ps3 & xbox wired controllers.

    I’m giving this product a 2* because if it would have actually worked when my son opened it for Christmas he would have loved it! He was really upset when he opened it and it was broken. It looks like someone returned it and it was broken, or at least I hope it was. We haven’t returned it yet because I just had surgery and am unable to. As soon as I am able I will return it and hopefully get one that actually works.

    Dim lighting

    The lighting on this is dim. The light does not even reach the bottom tips of the controller. The only reason to buy this over another controller is the lighting, and it does a poor job. I have an afterglow wired controller for 360 and it is about 3x the brightness and fills the whole controller. The buttons seem to work fine so far, although they feel a bit cheap.

    Okay not great

    As a cheap replacement this controller is good. Not great nor terrible. Probably the worst part about it is the analog sticks. For regular movement they are fine. If you need to push in to run in a game, you may get frustrated. The stick has to be in a neutral position to push in to run. That is the biggest problem with the controller. If that was changed it would easily be a 4 maybe a 5 star.

    I have been buying these 3rd party XBox controllers since the day of 360. They always last years, they look cool, and they're super convenient for using with a PC as the wired connection will allow any contemporary WIndows machine to recognize them when plugged into a USB port. They also have a decent cord length with breakaway cable. I bought this one for use with SteamLink.

    Headphones sound with static.Some headphones wont even work with it.Also the USB micro starts getting loose after a while and causes all sort of issues.Like remote not responding or just shutting off completely.Another thing I noticed is you cant click the left analog stick in and move at the same time.Not good for Fps games where it's used to run in a certain direction.

Dual rumble motors provide vibration feedback in action-packed scenes, and the 3.5mm headset jack and built-in audio controls let you join in-game voice chats. Customize the programmable paddle-style buttons on the back of this red PDP deluxe wired controller to suit your playing style.

    I bought it for my fiancé as a Christmas present and he loved it so much and for the first few days it was perfect but the mic no longer works. It plugs in and turns on and he can hear his friends but all his friends hear is static and we’ve tried to fix it but nothings worked. So I would recommend it, if you have a wireless headset

    The kids have taken to this controller so much that the original XBOX wireless controllers are no longer being used. It’s also nice that they can use these on a PC to play games as well. The only draw back we have had is with the headphone jack occasionally not working. We unplug the usb cable and plug it back in and that usually takes care of the issue.

    They're built well enough to survive a house full of kids, priced well, the cord is plenty long enough for most couch setups with slack, and they look and feel much like the originals. Speaking more on the cable, the included Micro USB cable is really well made and clicks in place nicely and hasn't came out on me on either of the two I purchased.

    I love this, we bought two and I love the color changing and different settings you can put the lights on and the brightness is adjustable too. Plus it actually rumbles and buttons work well for plug and play on the computer too. Definitely worth the $30 over the typical black for the same price.

    Purchase this as a Christmas gift for my 6 yr old. Paid regular price but after the use of it I made the right choice. the color changing is very eye catching and which he like. I like that you dont need batteries for this while playing. It works just like the rest xbox controller just with a little more style.

    The kids like this controller because of the lights and I like it because It's not a $60 wireless Microsoft controller that requires constant battery purchases. I can now have the peace of mind that they can enjoy their games even when they have managed to use all the batteries in the house.

    I got my boyfriend it for Christmas and he loves it. I also love it. It’s cool cause it can change colors. Great gift for your man. What’s also nice is that’s it’s wired so you don’t have to worry about it not being charged cause it’s charging while you play Fortnite or cod so it’s very convenient.

    This customizable controller is pretty neat. It would be nice if it was wireless but I understand the instensity of having constantly lit up LEDs requires a cord. The cord doesn’t go as far as needed in my home so furniture rearranging is necessary. Great look and functionality though.

    I use this controller on my gaming desktop and am pleased with its responsiveness. The joysticks are not terribly sensitive out of the box, but those settings can be changed in the PDP app, (free to download), as can the color scheme.
