As far as build quality, it does seem rather cheap for a first party controller - but not any cheaper than SIXAXIS felt in 2006, so I can deal with it.
What does bother me is that the analog sticks feel too small, even though I'm sure they aren't technically that much smaller. And the shoulder buttons I just can't get used to.
I kinda wish we could use Xbox 360 controllers with the X1, but I know Microsoft's gotta sell new accessories just like any hardware manufacturer. --- Xbox Live: Phange 2 Playstation Network: Phange

I thought the same thing when I first started using it, but I can say without hesitation within a few hours of using it, it feels way more right. I don't know. There's something just way more organic about holding it. I've gone back to 360 quite a bit to play NHL '14, because I needs me my hockey fix, and the 360 controller just feels like a clunky piece of deadweight in comparison.
I'd say just muddle through the X1 controller for a while, I hope you settle into the new controller. I'm not offering promises because it's definitely a matter of taste, but in my opinion, it really does grow on you. --- GT: NE OBL1V1SCAR1S

I just hope they release a new color soon. I seriously keep losing this super black controller in the dark.

The rough edges on the sticks bug me, but other than that it feels at least as good as the 360 controller to me. I didn't have any trouble with the shoulder buttons. And the trigger feedback in Forza was actually pretty useful.
But I wish there was a purely wired version and that the console had USB ports on the front. And just like the 360, I wish the controller were bigger - about the size of the OXBOX controller would be good for me. --- Cheating has gone hand-in-hand with gaming for centuries.
