I'm a major Xbox fanboy, but I'll be totally honest. I went through 4 different Elite V1 due to various issues, and I'm going on my 3rd Elite V2 (due to a common issue with sticky triggers). They broke under routine use, didn't treat them poorly. Fortunately I only paid for one of each, managing to take advantage of warranties and extended replacement plans. For $150+, the build quality of these controllers is simply not there. I cannot recommend them to anyone. But if you are going to buy one, make absolutely sure you pay for extended coverage.

My experience says 100% fail on reliability. Very nice otherwise. I'm sure others love it. Guess I'm too rough.

Buy them from costco and return them when they break. It's the only rational solution.

would like to add that I also went through 2 elite controllers before I got one that had an A button that worked 100% of a time. QC is HORRIBLE for these things. If you do purchase, just be prepared to go through a lot of hoops with Microsoft's customer service. I can't believe this didn't make it into any reviews when they came out.

They somehow made the quality control and drifting issues WORSE with the series 2 than the notoriously bad series 1.

For this kind of money just go with a SCUF, at least they honor their warranties.

had horrible drift with series 2 - thankfully I got at costco so I was able to return. I would avoid or buy from costco for returns.

STAY AWAY

I bought mine in December 2019. It broke down in September 2020. I sent my controller in for repair, and they sent a replacement back

The first replacement was defective upon arrival. I sent the first replacement back, and received a second in January.

The SECOND REPLACEMENT is ALSO broken. Shoulder and paddle button don't work on the SECOND REPLACEMENT!

I'm game constantly and still have my original Elite controller. To be fair I don't use that controller when I'm playing something that doesn't benefit from paddles but I have out well over a few hundred hours on it. Only issue I ever had was dropped it and cracked the LB. I bought a replacement online and fixed it myself. Haven't had issues yet.

I guess I'm in the minority here lol. I have had a great experience with my Elite 1. Many hours of use. No drift, sticking, or grips coming loose.

Great controller but you need to buy extended warranty. This won't last long. Another thing, if you take this back to MS for repair when it breaks (it certainly will), they will give you used controller replacement. I've had to visit MS again because controller they gave me for replacement also had an issue. Your original controller is gone forever.

i also have had no problems with either an older Elite 1 or an Elite 2 I got when they came out (Fall 2019 I think). On the other hand I don't do a lot of serious FPS gaming and probably treat it fairly lightly, and often just use a regular controller instead. One thing to note is that I think these weight noticeably more than a regular controller.

BTW MSRP for the "2" model is $179, so this is a decent discount on something that is not normally discounted. The "2" model has built-in Li-Ion rechargeable batteries instead of using AAs like regular X controllers, and a lot of other "improvements" over the series 1. Honestly I'm not sure it's worth the cost unless you really plan to max-out the custom features (bottom levers, changeable pad, etc). And based on the complaints, probably get a warranty; though again, I have NOT had any problems with mine.

Must be luck of the draw. I had 2 of the V1 but that was because I had to use my Best Buy warranty. Still on my original V2 from launch. It did sound like early V2 models had horrible quality control issues.
