The £70,000 car will be turning heads, pulling birds and going faster before you can say cheese.Whilst the £200 car you’ll be jump starting it every morning. £70 for a controller is ridiculous but then again what do I know?

Obviously not much

"Grade A-" marks of use on controller.

Looks a decent price!

Worth noting that they've classed it as condition A- as supposed to A+, which basically covers them for very very light signs of use (barely noticeable scratches and wear)

I once ordered a grade A- from SC. Turned up and it was boxed and sealed.

You'd get a lot more mileage out of a £200 car than these pads, mines continuing to fall apart in new places (rubber parts).

I’ve had one for about a year and it’s as good as new. No obvious signs of wear. I always keep it in its case when not in use

Cold, I paid £64.99 from them on the 7th Oct. Items have been sealed by them, not factory sealed. Good controller, well made but triggers on back are just in the way of holding it. I removed all but 1 top right for jump.

BE WARNED. These are crap, they feel great, the functionality is great, the build quality is great....except for the ridiculously poorly designed and weak LB/RB buttons!!! My son looked after this like his baby. I saw loads of reviews warning about it, but i couldn't see the problem, sure they felt very plasticy and light compared to the rest of the (very sturdy feeling) buttons, but it wasn't an issue. That is until one day the LB button just popped out, it wasn't dropped, the button wasn't even in use, it just literally popped out!

MS couldn't be less helpful, luckily my local Game had heard of the fault and offered me a full credit refund which they didn't have to do. I've now bought a recon pad which feels less premium but will probably last longer and at half the price doesn't fuss me as much.

By all means ignore my warning, I ignored others, but bear in mind that there are loads of reports of this weakness, you may not be as lucky as I was and you may end up with a very expensive paperweight!

Yeah these are a waste of money, they don't seem to want to address the issue, least they could do is offer a repair/replacement service. After all, people have paid a premium for these pads and Microsoft aren't short of a few bob.

Not the first time they have released shoddy equipment, the 360 overheating debacle is still pretty fresh in my mind.

Poor show

Fantastic controller in general but my son's LB just snapped out of the blue also - Microsoft repaired/replaced it easily though. Also noticing his sticks seem very loose after about a year of use also.

Rumours of an updated Elite coming before this year is out so hopefully any weaknesses will be rectified in that (along with the updated wireless radios and bluetooth support).

I also have had mine for about a year. It’s in perfect condition and once it passes that 12 month mark if it was to break I would be happy that I got a decent amount of play out of it and quite happily buy another. I think people these days expect things to last forever when they don’t - especially when you’ve got an opportunity to buy one at 70% of recommended retail you can’t go wrong

Sorry, but applying a time frame to a life expectancy of a gaming controller is plain silly.

Some people play 2 or 3 hours a week, others play 6 or 7 hours per day or more!

12 months of the latter may be considered acceptable, but even then i would expect more than 12 months from a control pad before it starts falling apart! regardless of the cost.

If yours hasn't fallen apart yet, then you're probably a casual gamer, and given enough use this will fall apart on you

They are simply unfit for purpose

If you're happy to accept a product that falls apart on you after an average amount of use, then more fool you

I don’t think you get my drift - if you are a “casual” gamer then I doubt you would be investing in such a game pad. My acceptance of a 12 month product warranty for this product is based on a) a sensible time frame for a piece of plastic b) my affordable income and c) my utilisation of said product. If you cannot recognise the merits of this pad I suggest that it is you that is a “casual” gamer and more than likely a snide one who gets his kicks downvoting and commenting on other people’s posts even when you are clearly not going to be buying the product. I don’t think that you actually understand how stupid you sound when you say these are not fit for purpose - clearly they are otherwise they wouldn’t have sold any and would have been recalled by now for those that had actually sold.

Why don’t you go outside and have some fun with your family - or at least go outside on your own and give them the day off

Ah the, 'outside to have fun with family' remark....... , despite that you're also replying to me and not outside with your family...

classic physiological projection.

This simply highlights an imbecile who is tragically overprotective of their gaming console and unable to formulate a counter argument.

Casual gamers do purchase this pad, or receive it as a gift and it has fallen apart on them. Fact

Did you design and make the pad? no. So why the crybaby attitude? unless you have any facts to add to this conversation with regards to the build of this pad, then please do everyone a favour and refrain from posting.

The point is that this actually offers little benefit over a standard pad, and this fault is limited to the elite pad which is shocking. Put it this way, I have 4 standard pads and none have had this issue, they are 2-3 yrs old and only one has a knackered A button courtesy of GTA and Minecraft.

Why have MS used such a crap component in a "premium" product, moreover, why have they not addressed it when they know about it? If you want to pay 100 every year that's fine, I guess the saying about a fool and his money is true

Don't get me wrong, MS offered a replacement with no issue, but that replacement only has a 3mth warranty, that's what I find unacceptable. If they had any confidence in the product, they would give a 12mth warranty, they don't, this should be a red light to anyone thinking of purchasing it. Remember, I saw the warnings, I thought I knew better and I nearly got stung as a resultt.

By all means buy one, but I personally think it's stupid to buy a product that you pretty much know you will be replacing after a year, he'll, the thing doesn't even have Bluetooth!

A much more reasoned and experienced response I only utilise this pad for call of duty and its versatility in conjunction with the Xbox accessory app makes it stand out and does not have a near rival in terms of what is available on the market out there. I would say that I use this pad in excess of 20 hours a week and have had it for 11 months - I did however pay nothing for the Pad itself as I bought an Elite console with the pad for £199 at Argos, got a voucher for £10 back and sold the console to a fool who was easily parted with his money on gumtree for £300 and then went and bought the pad with a game and utilising the Argos voucher so actually made a profit and got a free game . This being said if it was needing a replacement I would buy another (probably wait until the next generation which is rumoured where they will undoubtedly like all products change the design to a more robust one).

Appreciate the debate especially with someone with personal experience and in a friendly manner - unlike the keyboard warriors who frequent these comment sections and don’t even know what a gif is

Just ignore, hard to take someone seriously who thinks paying 100 quid annually for a few extra buttons and configurations on a controller represents value.

You really are triggered aren’t you.

Full of instructions too - he is engaging in a pleasant and welcoming manner. Why should he ignore and why should I refrain from posting under your instructions?

I won’t be responding to you again so feel free to get the last word in. This being said we all have the measure of you and everyone can see how petty, ignorant and offensive you are. Have a good day with the family keyboard warrior and good luck in life I am sure you will need it.

Likewise I was so disappointed when ours broke as it does feel premium, it's just that one stupid design flaw that there is just no excuse for.

awww.... did that horrible man insult your beloved control pad... just give it an extra cuddle when you take it to bed.

and, I know what a gif is. sounds like you don't though. p.s not all are animated. and none are animated for me either way on my browser. All displayed as jpegs.

And on a final note, i own this controller and have had it replaced once already. Think you make too many assumptions, and you know what they say about that.
Edited by: "jayjayuk1234" 21st Oct

The rubber on the left grip is peeling away from the plastic on mine. I never have sweaty hands and the controller is treated good. I'll be seeing if i can get it replaced as I haven't had it long.

Bought this for £120, had it a year so far and it's rock solid! Best controller ever made! Amazing

Careful, I posted a similar "well mines been great" post about 3dats before the LB broke, I think I jinxed it!!!

In what Universe was the elite control pad £199.99.. I've only ever know them to be between £99.99 and £119.99.

Still going strong!!! Lol
