    Elite 2 Controller is a RIP OFF


    Left stick drifts up and down. X button sticks down. A button intermittent.

    Warrenty expired 6 days ago. No replacement, $99 for repair and 15-20 days turnaround. Rep said could be 1 to 2 months with covid. Took me 5 hrs on the phone. They don't care. What a rip off. Basically a $66/month rental at this point with a $99 fee
    to wait 2 months to see if the next one works.

    If your going to get it you better get the 2 year warranty.

    :)

    If you are paying $400 for an elite controller you got ripped off.

    ELITE CONTROLLER IS A RIP OFF

    I have an xbox one elite controller, it's working fine - Use it as my primary controller and the grips / buttons all work fine, you must have been unlucky and received a defective unit.

    ELITE CONTROLLER IS A RIP OFF

    I disagree with this 100%. I have an Elite controller. I purchased it brand new. My gf and her 5 kids live with me so trust me it gets plenty of use. Even overuse and not once has anything gone wrong with the controller. No problems with the grips nor the
    buttons. Did you buy yours second hand? Is it an authentic elite controller? I just bought a second controller so I don't have to re-sync the controller between consoles in the living room and my bedroom. I love the elite controller and it's the only one I use.

    ELITE CONTROLLER IS A RIP OFF

    I have a day one elite controller that I did the pre-order on when they were announced. It has been working just fine without any issues and it is the only controller I use. About 3 months ago one of the grips did start to come off and I was able to find
    new oem grips on ebay and amazon for $10. I consider this normal ware and tear so I see no reason to down grade the device for this, no different then a car having similar wear.

    The Xbox One controllers are poorly built

    The elite controller is definetly a rip off. its made out of plastic just like the original controller. probably only costs $20 or $30 to make. I guess they have to make some money for operating expenses for xbox.
