      • "buttons are all in blue

      I used this controller, on and off, for ca. three years.
      It works quite well and I have nothing to complain about it in general.

      The good things about this controller:
      To have two input (mini-)joysticks has indeed a great advantage over all other game-pad-controller with just one (mini-)stick.
      That vibration-feedback-gadget is quite nice too.
      This must NOT TO BE MISTAKEN FOR FORCE-FEEDBACK, WHICH IT HAS NOT). To explain that quickly: Vibration-feedback is just one or two motors inside the controller, which vibrate and create some sensation of, e.g. driving a car –
      Force-feedback has at least three motors, which are connected to the input-stick. These motors attempt to simulate real – well – feedback-forces; e.g. the counter-turn of a steering-wheel, when power-sliding along a corner.
      . One can set it up for various games and there are already many presets available with the controller.
      These presets include button-allocations for various tasks and one can create custom-presets too.

      The not so good things:
      These mini-sticks should be more round at the top, as the cause finger-pain, where one touches these sticks, after ca. 2 – 3 hours of game-play – I guess one should rest after such a long period of time anyway!
      The buttons are ALL blue and thus often make it harder then necessary to remember, where one has put what function on (It would be a great advantage, if they were, like on game-consoles in various colours).

      Personally, I dislike black colour of the controller), it makes the whole experience rather negative.
