Microsoft cut corners and ruined a great product.
The bumpers broke after a couple months of use. The design for these is awful. LB and RB are a single piece of molded plastic held together by a 1 millimeter thick arc of plastic. This small bit of plastic is the only thing that brings the button back after being pressed. It could be easily fixed by separating the two buttons and introducing a spring similar to the triggers. The rubberized grip initially is great, but unfortunately it expands with heat. This leads to it coming loose from the controller and eventually peeling away. Most people who are willing to drop $150 on a controller are going to be using it for more than an hour or two at a time, and this will ALWAYS lead to enough heat to ruin the grip. While the side pieces can be replaced with aftermarket grips like those made by Scuff, the rear shell can not. And for $150, you shouldn't need to. Simple design changes would have made this controller perfect. Unfortunatly, Microsoft cut corners on their "premium" product.

What u should do, and things u should know.
I love these for shooters, the reason most are mad they dont buy the 1 year warranty of 20 dollars. So when it breaks down they can get another, just have the renew it for another 20 dollars. They last for about 6-8 months for me and i play 12-16 hrs a day. Best thing i can say to do is buy it and warranty. But buy it from a place u can get a refund, if u dont like it. Ive been using this remote since it came out and players always say i cheat in shooters when they play against me. I dont know how many reports i have because of this remote. But ive never had anything bad happen yet. The remote triggers have switches on bottom to decrease the time it take to fire in games. Lets say it takes u 1 secs to aim and fire a player, if u hit the switches it will .75 or .5 sec to aim and fire. Lots of players believe this is a cheat in games when its really this controller. Problems with controller, rubber degrades quick and thumb stick lose sensitivity, it has a connection to console issue.

Waste of Money. Get the Warranty.
The grips fell off after 5 months and had stick drift. The people giving positive reviews say there on there 2nd or 3rd one. For this much money it should be for life. If I were you get it at best buy with there warrany cause microsoft warrany on this was I believe a month.

XBOX1 Elite Controller Filibusterer
I've wasted approximately $300 on 2 of these poorly designed controllers. Each broke in the exact same way as the last. The "Left Bumper" broke in the exact same way on "BOTH" my "ELITE CONTROLLERS" within the first 3-4 months of normal use. This was a common issue w/the standard wireless controllers. If the Industry puts customer retention & satisfaction back @ the top of their list of priorities & move away from open, blatant & unappologetic theft in the form of everything from endless micro fees too sad customer service they would still have way too much $money$ plus the added benefit of retaining customer confidence & resect "which they once had approximately 5-10yrs. ago". Don't waste your hard earned $ on this monument to compromise & shameful sales practices. Instead take a page from the masters & stick w/whatever barely gets you by because apparently it's the way of the future. !EXCITING!

This is the best controller I've ever used. I have been using it almost daily since I bought it (2+ years) and NEVER had a problem with it. It's very responsive and even though I don't feel the need to change out the different controller options, I'm glad the option is there. I like that I can use the rechargeable battery pack with it (bought separately). The only problem I've had is that my PDP Afterglow headset is starting to crackle and the audio cuts out. Could be the audio jack in the controller. But other than that, this has been a solid purchase! Very happy!

Appraisal.from honest 13 months
After over a year of heavy use I still find the elite to be the best game pad style controller I've ever used. Never had problems with anything but a stolen d pad. Flawless in execution, feels solid and well made. Survived many falls, still on my first elite. Will buy again. Actual ownter.

Looking for the best wireless controller? Try Elsewhere
Update: 1 Year on: After about 10 months of continuous daily use, my controller is starting to show signs of "controller fatigue". It "wanders" unless the controls are being used which renders the controller useless for a serious gamer. $150 for 1 years' worth of use. Yep, that's Microsoft for you. Elite Wireless Controller: The Best of The Best. With customizable paddles, buttons & triggers, there isn't a setup you can't make successful. Pricey? Yes. Worth it? Definitely. Serious gamers will love it. Connecting is a cinch and is automatic. Easy to use, convenient and will lift your gaming to another level.
