The controller itself is great, comfortable and precise. However the battery life is poor and the rubber on the analog sticks has begun to deteriorate after only 6 months. The light bar is a good concept but has proved to be redundant. You cannot see it while gaming without taking your eyes away from the screen and consciously tilting the controller back to look at it or seeing the reflection on your trigger fingers, or even worse seeing the reflection on your screen. A better option would be to integrate subtle illumination into the front face, the buttons or thumb sticks for more useful feedback. The speaker is a great feature but currently under utilized.
