Doesn't last long 11/27/2013
This review is from: Xbox 360 Wired Controller Black/Glossy Black
Faster than wireless
No more replacing batteries
Cable is TOO long
Cable permanently is a lot less flexible after being exposed to cold
Cable gets tangled too easily
Controllers easily gets shortened out and doesn't last long
I've owned a couple of these wired controllers after being frustrated with signal drops and the couple millisecond delay with the wireless ones. There's absolutely no difference between the two except for the core concepts of wired and wireless. I haven't had a wired controller make it past the 6 month mark though because of numerous of issues surrounding these controllers.
To new buyers: They are NOT meant to last. These aren't the original PS1 controllers that lasted decades even with all the muck and grime built up on them. The cord easily gets tangled and shortens out. The material the cord is made of does not handle cold well as once exposed it becomes less flexible and not easy to work with because of its length. With a cable this long they should made the entire thing detachable so that it can be switched out for smaller lengths.
