I was looking to upgrade my controller game and was willing to spend a little extra on a quality piece of gear. I nearly ordered a Razer Raiju, as well as a Skuf Impact, but settled on this controller after comparing reviews and pricing of all three. It looks like this 2nd version has solved the previous version's problem with the cable connection wearing out. I love the staggered layout, the customization options, and the accuracy of this controller.
One thing that isn't obvious at first is that when you're mapping the rear buttons using the app, you highlight the button you want to map in the app then press the corresponding face button on the controller. Another thing that isn't obvious at first is that you need to switch the little switch on the rear of the controller to PS when you use it with your PS4. That lets you use one of the 4 available (and customizable) profiles that are loaded on the controller through the app. There are 4 tiny red lights on the front of the controller that will denote which profile you have selected *but* they only illuminate when that switch is set to PS. In retrospect, it's pretty simple but I just saved you a half hour.
In use, I opted to turn the vibration off and to leave the weights out so it's light in hand. I don't mind that the controller can't turn the PS4 on like the official ones can. Lastly, I love the fact that it's a wired-only controller because I sit in front of the PS4 when gaming, and never liked dealing with rechargeable controllers. The cable is longer than the one included with the OEM PS4 controllers.
Overall, this is a dope controller that is worth the price.
