Long time Elite controller user here. I love it. Can't say I like the price too much, considering the terrible warranty, but it is an excellent controller. Once you map jump and duck/slide to paddles, it's tough to go back.

I have had mine for years. Things seem to work fairly well still. Left stick has some drift, which is a bit annoying. The rubber grip is starting to separate a bit as well.

For those wanting the paddles for cheaper, maybe look at a Scuff controller?

Yes read the OP, you will need a PSP account then the price will show up.

This stands for Partner Savings Program, most common are GoodLife and CAA. Google is your friend for validation codes if not a member.
I’m a CAA member, but where do you get the PSP validation code? I can’t seem to find it anywhere?

Sold out online already. Hopefully it’ll come back in stock! $195 is a great price (for me personally).

90 days is a good warranty?

So, a 90 day warranty and after that it's YMMV??? Thats a good warranty?

If you're planning on getting one, make sure you get an extended warranty.

Not justifying the high price or the fact that the manufacturer's warranty is only 90 days, but if you are considering paying this much money for a controller that has had issues in the past, you should really consider getting this from Best Buy and buying their replacement plan to go along with it. It's different from the service plan offered on appliances, TVs, consoles, basically anything over $200 and not an accessory. It's easy to claim and you get your money back (in exchange for 20% upfront to buy the warranty). Ask to PM the better price, then whoever is helping you will probably try to upsell you on the replacement plan at which point you can pretend that cost is why you're on the fence and they'll probably knock another $10 or so off the controller price for you so that you buy the warranty. This trick is more useful for the cheaper controllers where you probably have more than one and one warranty basically works on all of them..
