This review is from: HORI Battle Pad for Wii U (Luigi Version) with Turbo - Nintendo Wii U
Pros: Very comfortable. Shoulder buttons feel really nice. The best part is the slightly enlarged d-pad, which makes it even easier to use.
Cons: My OCD complaints are that it is made out of a noticeably different plastic, and letters on face buttons have a slightly sharper edge compared to the original.
Extremely minor complaints, not even worth a half egg deduction, but together they make it feel not exactly like an original.
Other Thoughts: Great controller all around. A faithful reproduction of my favorite controller. Using it to play Xenoblade Chronicles and having a blast.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This card surprised me many times. Whether it was being able to run Trine 2 at super high resolutions with SSAA, or how high I was able to push the settings in Battlefield 4, I was always impressed by what it could do.
Supports analog RGBHV.
Supports the Mantle API, which helps a lot in mid-tier systems. You can get very good FPS with it if you watch your VRAM use.
Cons: AMD's support of the Mantle API has been lackluster. It's been out for months, but with the 7000 series, you have to be very careful about how much VRAM you're using or you will get unplayable stuttering. They say they're still in the process of optimizing, but I feel like they've had enough time.
Other Thoughts: I bought the card way before Mantle was announced, so I'm not holding that against the card. I see it as more of a bonus. However, low-level API's will be standard in the future, and I hope AMD gets in gear with this thing.READ FULL REVIEW
