Yeah, they're reliable. I've not been in one of their physical stores in ages but, like you, I've found a few things on their online store that I couldn't see anywhere else. No problems with the process.

@yourbrain: I've seen first party Xbox pads getting reduced as low as £30 here - I picked up an orange ltd edition one which looks horrible but, hey.

Also worth checking out are the pads Microsoft are branding as controllers for Windows. Again, I picked one up in a sale last year and it's just an Xbox One pad (the new one with Bluetooth) plus a micro USB cable. They were cheaper than the regular Xbone pads which don't have a USB cable.

I bought one of these a while back as a spare and it's actually pretty decent.

Power A Fusion Controller

As most people are saying, you'll have the best time with a genuine first party pad but if a cut price Elite controller floats your boat - It's got replaceable thumbsticks, trigger stops and two extra buttons on the underside - this one works fine.

No cap here but my speed is 30mb/s out in the wilds of Tyrone so I'm never going to hit the crazy limits anyway, although if I had a faster connection with the same company I still wouldn't have limits.

My Shield TV controller's safe, then. I mean, you'd imagine it's Android TV compatible as well as with their own streaming box/console?

Actually, I barely use the Shield pad. Am finding a Power A Fusion a lot better.

I'd have said no until I got my current phone, a Moto G6, which had a habit of sliding off every chair arm I'd parked it on before I bought a case. Mirror finish shells look nice, and all that, but practical they ain't.

@phos: Norris has been winning everything in lower formulas, he's also British and very young which doesn't hurt their marketing - Lewis won't be around for ever and there's no other British driver on the grid. That he's not going to cost much is another bonus.

Sainz is the risky choice. ;)

I was pretty high in the One Finger Death Punch leaderboards for years using a Logitech G602, which has a thumb rest.

I had tons of grand ideas when I bought my first Pi, then quickly decided it was going to be an emulator box.
