"Way to Finally Review This...Only Out for Over 2 Years Now..."4.5 starson by PhillyBoy919
Pros: Very comfortable, Great battery life, Perfect range and response
Cons: Get the replacement plan, I'm on my 4th one
Summary: I have the white EA version of this controller and have had it for over a year. Thankfully, I got the Best Buy product replacement plan for $8 because I have had three of these things break in various ways (right analog was stuck down and right, then the left analog stick snapped on the second one, then the square button stuck in on the third). The 4th one has endured well, however. The only other controller I ever had break in my entire life was an NES Maxx waaaay back in the day.
I do think that I just had bad luck with this one though. My brother has the same controller and his has been flawless. The overall feel is solid and very comfortable. A pair of alkalines will last around 50 hours with rumble on and probably much longer with it off. I didn't notice any drop-off in the rumble capabilites of this vs. that of the dual-shock, so I don't know what this reviewer is smoking (although a review over 2 years after the product came out leads me to believe its something good). The range is a little better than I expected. I generally sit about 15 feet from the console and the response has never even lagged a little bit and maintains connection even 30 feet away.
Other than the wireless controller made by Microsoft for the Xbox 360, which is possibly the best console controller ever made, this is likely the best wireless controller in existence. For Nintendo afficionados, its like the WaveBird...but with rumble.
