Vastly superior to that
on 6 September 2014
Bought to use with a PC, as a replacement for an XBOX 360 controller. Vastly superior to that; analog sticks have more clearly
delineated movement, buttons have better resistance allowing more graduated movement. Wireless works fine as well, and an extension cable for the wireless adapter is included in case of problems with the signal if plugged directly into the back of the PC.
Installation is reasonably straightforward as long as you're aware that the device has a two modes (an XBOX imitation mode, and a proper Logitech mode), controlled by a switch on the device, and when you install the device it will recognise it only as the type of device for its current mode. In other words, if you install the Logitech software but have the device in the recommended X-mode, it will not recognise the device. This is intentional behaviour, but not documented in anything that comes with the device and catches out a lot of people judging from online forums, so worth noting.
One star is removed for what is surely the worst blister packaging I have ever encountered. Normally I would say packaging is a one-off experience and not worth a star, but I literally had to use bolt cutters to get into this thing, and that is beyond acceptable as far as I'm concerned.
