I wouldnt buy one again. Ive never ever had a problem with ANY xbox controller, OG, 360, or one, until I bought an Elite. Within the first few weeks the LB started falling out and the grip on the right side started seperating from the controller. I take care of my equipment and have never had ANY issues or broken controllers in my lifetime until I bought an Elite. The bumpers starting to fall out affected gameplay.

Bad batch.

I've had mine since day one without issue. And I use it exclusively

ZJust ask yourself this one question. Will you use the paddles?

I bought it for gears of war so i can run and dodge without taking my fingers off the sticks.
I tried to get used to the paddles but i couldnt. So for me it was a waste of money. Yes its nicely weighted and the grip is fantastic but not worth a hundred dollars more

Pretty awesome controller but easily the most high maintenance controller I’ve ever had. Bought one at launch, bought a broken spare one for replacement parts, had to replace one grip already that bubbled, has to dissassemble to clean out to correct stick drift etc etc

My 2nd Elite is holding up good.... so far. Gave A buddy my minor defective elite. It does have A fantastic feel to it compared the the standard controller. If only they could integrate the stereo headset adapter into the elite.

Here is A poll (closed) regarging controller quality/ longevity

What is the purpose of the extra paddles, can you map things to them, like massive combos in fighting games for example, so it's just a click of the button.

No macros, that'd be cheating.


That's what I thought, I can't see what the point of one is, but now @grampamurked has given an example, makes sense now, I don't personally play games that I feel I'd need one.

Many did, but after warranty it’s f*** all. They won’t touch it without raping your wallet.

If your defect is recognized within 30 days. You can, most likely, return it to the store. (Pending their terms).
Within 90 days is Microsoft warranty. They will require A receipt pic emailed to verify the purchase. Thats how I received A free 2nd elite controller.
