    Odd build quality quirks and poor warranty

    I preordered this controller prior to release and have used it regularly since November of 2019. Overall, the controller felt like a joy to use; in almost every sense it gave the appearance of a premium product. The bluetooth and internal battery were natural quality of life improvements over the Elite 1. I used it regularly on my PC and an NVIDIA shield. Then, one morning, I went to use and felt myself being stabbed on my finger tip. Apparently, one of the tiny sleeves on the hair trigger lock popped off the controller. It happens to be in a place where I naturally hold the controller; so far from having a smooth and nice tactile feel, I get stabbed in the finger by what appears to be metal every time I use the controller. A little bit of research revealed this to be a known problem with multiple threads on the MS support site complaining of this issue. The common solution seemed to be to super glue the sleeve into the trigger (which is startling given how expensive the controller is). However, despite this knowledge, there is no option to purchase a replacement sleeve from MS and its not included in the replacement button accessory kit the company sells. The only option provided to me by MS was to buy a replacement controller; a horrifically expensive proposition for what seems an obvious and glaringly simple fix on a "premium" product that hasn't even been on the market for a year. The best MS customer service could suggest was me to engineer a fix on my own, by either sticking a piece of eraser on the stabby part or a glue on bumper. A three figure "repair" option was offered to me as well. A great and expensive disappointment indeed.

    I love this controller. As an owner of an Elite 1 controller I can tell you this is a bug upgrade over that. The new design of the paddles.makes it so much easier to use because they are smaller and better places whereas with the elite 1 they were big and could easily be hit as well as feel awkward when gaming. I use this controller to play both on PC and Xbox series X. My only complaint is the nubs to set the trigger stop on each side fell off which is a weird thing to.have happen for such a high priced item. I primarily use this to play Call of Duty Warzone.

    I've use the Elite controller from Microsoft since they first came out. They are a very nice controller. 40 hours per charge is impressive. Yes, you can even play and charge at the same time. The first series did have some issues. From wearing out thumb sticks to sprint/melee buttons. Yes, these controllers do get dropped from time to time. Ive broken triggers, worn out hand grips. Series 2 seems like a game changer. Its an impressive upgrade to an already great controller. Is it worth the cost? YES!

    Ever since the first elite controller dropped I couldn’t play Xbox again with a regular controller. The grip the touch the feel the feedback everything just feels luxurious with this piece of hardware I wish the price would come down a tad but you gotta Pay To Play can’t live without it highly recommend it.

    Best controller ever made for the xbox

    First thought that came to my mind is that this is what every Xbox controller should be like feels very premier just like the PS five controller and also has USB-C to charge which is a huge downgrade on the regular controller that comes with the Xbox itself in 2022 we shouldn’t have to put batteries in our controllers as a new Xbox user on the series X I find it crazy that I had to buy another controller that was more up-to-date with what we handled today that’s why this controller get a five star for me for the fluidity smoothness and the rubber grip

    Button issues.

    I bought this controller on the 23rd and started having issues with it a couple of weeks later. The A button wasn't registering my presses. It was happening enough for me to barely notice it at first. I have the power a fusion as well so I switched to it and def found out I was having issues with a $200 controller. Was planning on returning it today when I started having issues with the right bumper sticking as well. Was just going to get another one but I think I'm just going to get refund and buy a couple of regular controllers instead. Never had an issue with those. Kinda sad an $80 pro controller from another company works better than the $200 one manufactured by the company itself. I know plenty of people who had issues with the first gen one and saw reviews that people were already having issues with this one as well. Against my better judgement I bought it anyway. Lesson learned.

    The controller for the series X that comes with the console is awful. It’s click clack buttons and AA battery compartment are shameful. This controller however is the one that should have come with the system. As I’m writing this review it’s on sale for Total Tech members for $140.00 and it’s worth that easy. It’s every bit as good as any custom Scuff PS5 controller that are selling for $230.00. If you love your Xbox and hate the cheap controller they packaged with it here’s the remedy.

    I love my controller! It’s very responsive although I must admit after 100 hours of usage it will begin to lose its touch but Believe that’s for ultimately for competitive(Due too competitive pressing) play! If you’re playing more of a laid-back game; you should be good to go for a long time.

    This new iteration of the Elite controller is well... ELITE! It is one of the most comfortable controllers I’ve ever used and is better than any 3rd party pro controllers you can get! A tad pricey but well worth it! It has an internal rechargeable battery and the battery life lasts for days! Like binge playing all day... days! Must have for shooters too. Literally cannot play shooters anymore without paddles! Perfect compliment to a new Series X having 60-120fps!

    I haven’t tried it yet but coming from a scuf controller and opening this product at work I’m excited to get home and try this out. Feeling the controller and pressing the buttons testing them out feels much better then scuf controllers maybe just a little heavier but it feels so much better. I’ll update when i test it out for a few weeks. Ps my scuf controllers can’t charge anymore and scuf will not help me out with them, that’s why I bought the series controller.

    Love it! I was between this and a SCUF controller. This is the much better option in my opinion especially for a $50+ difference ( i got it for $158 and got the extended replacement and was still cheaper and my feeling is much better built.) The case that comes with holds the extra parts and charges the controller.

    I was on the hook due to price but after purchasing I was surprised how much I enjoyed using this controller.  I like the different opinions available to me.  The controller itself is nice and comfortable.  You have the option of changing the joysticks, triggers can be set to different sensitivity, paddles can be set for quick access during game play. You can also go into the controller settings for different joystick game play options. I don't see myself using a regular controller again.  There's also a nice case with a dock to recharge your controller.

    Almost had this controller a year, and the good it feels amazing, the texture, the perfect weight, perfect, the looks, just beautiful… The bad The bumpers are responsive 50% of the time, and it feels like there’s random hesitation after every few clicks of any of the buttons… google says that has been a pretty common issue

    Microsfot already invented the best xbox remote on the market the original xbox controller that come in the box. This product has amazing quality but it feels to havy and hard bringing hands fatigue and inacurate gameplay. For the price it cost it does not worth the upgrade. I took it back to the store after playing hallo infinite with it.

    so good , i bought two of them. just make sure u take care of them they are very delicate when it comes to greasy foods as of course all other controllers but it's not worth doing it to this once
