Nevere had problems with any of xbox 360 or one controller in probably more than 3 y, they're much more likely to be wear by your normal use, which the guarantee will not cover, that's my thought

Is this the One S pad, or the old pad which is shown in their pictures? If its the old pad then I'd jog on, even with the warranty..

If you buy XBox Controller from Amazon at £39.85. You’ll get code to claim £5 off on 3 Months XBox live makes it £43.84 for both. Works out much better deal than this

Model number says it's the S pad, 6CL-00002.

So this is the latest '1708' model. It should work with Steam link without the need for an adapter?

The one in the photo is the old style controller with the terrible plastic thumbstick assembly. If it's not the S controller I wouldn't bother if it was a tenner

I need to replace my two controllers.( 1st generation)
Due to one "drift" problem. Other one doesn't Go right. Had mine for roughly 3 years.
Was going to get this, unaware that they have changed the controllers What's the difference between this and the new controllers visually. I gather the build quality is better? Recommendtions on new ones?

Someone has posted that this JL deal is in fact for the new controller.

Compared to the previous Gen pad with the 3.5mm Jack:

Pros:
This new 'One S' pad has better bumpers which don't break, better rumble and thumbsticks that have more resistance. Has Bluetooth connectivity. Dimpled rear of the pad is better for grip/feel

Cons:
Due to higher resistance in thumbsticks they are more prone to breaking (become twistable!)
Still prone to thumbstick drift.

Thanks got the info and indepth review of S pad! Much appreciated.

Pardon my ignorance but can you use this as a controller for a PC too ?

Sorry I missed your earlier comment. Looks like your question has been answered, although I can't say I've noticed any drift/twisting with the S controller, as the last poster claims. The thumbstick assembly has been greatly improved on the S controller to rectify those issue specifically.

As he said though, there is a range of improvements on the S controller, which also include increased connectivity range to the console (in addition to Bluetooth) and more tactile ABXY buttons. It's just an improved controller all round.

I just tested a load of non-3.5mm, 3.5mm, elite and One S pads and the ABXY feels no different on any of them. What difference am I looking for here?

On the One S pad I've found that about 20% pads I've bought on eBay have had a physically damaged thumbstick module to varying degrees so I'm calling design flaw.
On the 3.5mm it was the bumpers snapping that was a common fault.
I'm sure most will have no problems, but a significant minority may experience it. (Many people will just think it feels a little funny and not realise the extent on the problem they have!)
If you've got a snapped side of your thumbstick module you can fix it by carefully taking apart a new module and clicking the missing side back into place and it'll be as good as new.
