Pros: Got the controller earlier than I anticipated. Controller has a really nice hue and feels great in the hand while gripping. Since I am just getting into PC gaming I needed a controller and this one fits the mark!
Cons: None that I could think of

Pros: Fairly sturdy fight stick. Allows you to replace parts.
Cons: The cost on this fight stick is simply insane. $200.00 for a fight stick that MAYBE has $100.00 in parts.
You can buy a SANWA for $25.00 tops, maybe even less. Most arcade buttons won't run more then $5.00 a piece (average is less then $2.00).
Wiring harnesses are super cheap, so I am not even going to include that.
Controller PCB and drivers? They have them already for under $30.00, includes a wiring harness and the drivers for most of them work with PC and most console platforms.
The reality is this is over priced hardware for a niche market. You'd be better off buying the parts yourself and anchoring them in some scrap wood.
Other Thoughts: SANWA isn't the final word in "arcade quality" joysticks, there are actually much better ones on the market. It's just a well known brand that arcade nerds will respond to.
MADCATZ is really gouging people out on this joystick. A year or two from now I'll be surprised if this joystick even cost $50.00

Pros: Lots of adjustability options, works great out if the box
Cons: Wheel is way to loose. Aside from the noise and very rough grinding when turning the wheel, you get no resistance when steering. The wheel just floats back and forth. You can almost get stuck in every non-smooth location as you turn the wheel...either I have a broken wheel or the design is awful. My PC Logitech G27 sters much better with a 100% better, more realistic steering feel. Tech support is non existent. I had a mounting issue, which I fixed myself, but have gotten no response on in a couple weeks now, and I submitted a question about the wheel, if it can be tightened or anything, 3 days ago, but have not heard a peep yet. It works, but at high speeds is very difficult to control with this wheel's properties.
Other Thoughts: $400 is not cheap but I don't know if other options in this range are any better. The xbox controller isn't as bad as I though now

Pros: Great improvement to the 360 controller. Definitely like the new rumble features. It also connects to the pc so I can use it to play PC games.
The battery lasts a long time.
Cons: None really. The only thing is that it gets dirty pretty quick especially the thumb sticks.
Other Thoughts: I got a bad one from newegg so I had to RMA. When I got the controller the bumpers were Kind of loose. After three weeks of use the entire controller felt loose. It wasn't like this with the controller that came with the console.

Pros: -The Analog are a great improvements, they have a consistant resistance throughout any direction they're moved towards. Also they don't have those 4 dots that the 360 had which slightly iritated my thumbs over time (was a very tiny con on the 360 controller)
- The Triggers are also have consistant resistance and are silent when they are bottomed out, which is a huge plus! The triggers also are wider shaped which i like more because of more surface area to work with.
-The D-pad is definitely a great improvement in my opinion because there is tactile feedback (which could actually be bad for some) but it does *click* when depressed, not as much as the bumpers however.
-Controller comfort, I feel is better on this controller except for the bumpers (will get to that later). This is also a bias because I'm a fan of the 360 controller compared to other's i've used.
Cons: -The Bumpers unfortunately has a bias for pressing the outside of the bumper and is impossible to press the closer you press to the inside of the bumper. It's because the bumper is a joint starting on the inside and has the most amount of movement on the outside instead of simply making the whole bumper a depress button. Also it's the hardest button to depress (which isnt a problem for those who press a little harder).
-For some the D-pad having an actuation click would be annoying instead of a soft snap actuation.
-ABXY Buttons slightly louder than the average controller (definitely the smallest con).
Other Thoughts: Please note! This controller will only work wired for the time being and will not work with PC wirelessly just yet, there is no dongle that you can get for now (To this date posted at least). Make sure if you get the other xbox one controller (the one without the cable & charge kit) to get a usb cable as well.
Drivers and support, that's kind of a big deal, the official drivers right now are actually only in beta and i knew this when i got it.
After the drivers were installed i was surprised it worked on the games it did (dark souls 2, nuclear throne, samurai gunn, risk of rain, and spelunky). However it did not support starwals when i tried it. I'm not informed enough about the support to know why it didnt. But it's okay because they did say it was a beta driver and will most likely be patched in the future
For me, I wanted to eventually want to use a controller on the pc wired and wirelessly, and I have heard on forums that they plan on figuring something out in the future to add PC wireless support.
A good thing about this controller with the kit is that i do plan on using this controller for the PC in the future when they release the dongle or wireless solution. It might be smart to wait to see what they do about that.
And a little thing they added was the usb cable plugged into the controller is sturdy which is a nice bonus
Overall my suggestion to anyone that wants one simply for the new feel of the controller, i'd say get one. However if the new feel isn't important and you want the wireless option evetually, i'd wait and see if you're willing to pay for their wireless solution for pc.
