Hey all,

I’ve had an Elite II controller for a few years, but I think it’s on its way out, and I’m interested in alternatives. It’s a great controller, but I had to go through a whole PITA warranty process 9 months in due to a faulty shoulder button, sticking triggers, and a drifting analog stick. I received a faulty refurbished controller back, and after raising a huge stink, finally got a fully functioning replacement… which lasted another 9 months or so before I started getting the same trigger sticking and faulty shoulder. I’m sure the drifting analog stick will be along any day now. Plus I dropped it and one of the flippers is only about half-functional now. After all that, I’m not looking to drop another $150 on the same experience.

That being said, I don’t know if I can go back to the non-adjustable triggers, no programmable flippers, and shoddy battery life of a standard controller. So I’m interested in experiences any of you have had with other “pro” type controllers. Let me know if you have any experience with the controllers in the poll, or in the case of the Nacon, if you have experience with other Nacon controllers that give you any thoughts about how worth it the upcoming Revolution X controller will be.
Sadly I don't have much experience with those types of controllers. The one controller that I bought custom made from Microsoft never worked right so I've just used standard or generic controllers ever since.
They only came out Nov 4, 2019. So, definitely not a few year...

In my opinion, I'd either go with the Elite 2 or Razer Wolverine V2. I'm going to be buying the Elite 2 here shortly. It's on sale on through the Microsoft store for $149.99 I think, but Best Buy has it for $137.99 , somewhere around there so I'm probably going to go there. Unless anyone knows of anyplace cheaper?? Brand new though.
I only use standard controllers so can not really recommend anything. BUT i would stay away from anything PowerA. I bought a controller for the 360 and a recharge kit for the One from them and both were cheap pieces of crap. They also will find excuses to not honor a warranty.
