Or waiting for the inevitable refresh/redesign. A little googling will reveal quite a bit of players have serious issues with the build quality of the Elite controller. I wouldn't spend $150-$200 on it that's for damn sure.

For a $200 premium product it certainly doesn't live up to the price tag. I also play with several buds who own it and almost all of them have had issues with the elite controller is some way or another. Most issues seem to be with the shoulder buttons and analog sticks. It isn't hard to see that it isn't just internet haters causing a stir if you spend a little time researching the subject,

I've mapped the 4 buttons under the control.... one is left thumbstick click, the other is right thumbstick click...you can pretty much map them however you want.

you can adjust the triggers.. e.g. a tap is the same as a full press.. like a hairline trigger.

very customizable... all around im very happy
