Pros fells great softer and more grippy than the og xbox one elite faceplate
Right side of face plate pushes down on B button to the point it cannot be pressed down. I have to pull the plate up from the right side edge so that it’s not pressing down hard in the B button. I couldn’t find anything to to wedge anything in their to stop it from pushing down. Soo I just stuffed cardboard in between the face plate right edge and the controller to keep a gap and this keeping the B button loose. Why continue to sell this if they know what’s wrong with it????
I still bought this after seeing all the bad reviews regarding the gap once this front shell is screwed into the back shell.
I have modded standard Xbox One controllers so I thought maybe putting this faceplate on my elite would give my Xbox One Elite controller a little character.
The shell is beautiful and has the same feel as the stock one. But it's just ok after I put it on and realized the my A, X, start, select, and setup switch did not protrude all the way through. The A and X bottons were unable to be pressed at all. I have scuf grips on my elite controller so after having to take the shell off to file the holes my left scuf grip hook that holds the top on broke... all because the fit was off. That my friends is the problem. The grips stay on but after time my OCD will kick in and it will be a problem. For the price I guess it's not bad but there is minor fitting to be done. You can see in the picture the A button not coming through before the filing.
Looks gorgeous and fit is perfect. I was worried about buttons sticking or my headset adapter being a tight fit, which I've experienced with custom face plates before (sometimes the painting process makes them ever so slightly thicker.) I am happy to report that this is not remotely an issue. Not only does it fit great, it feels great in the hand. Unlike some glossy face plates that have kind of a "stickiness" about them, this face plate is smooth and feels high-quality.
Best thing I ordered on Amazon so far. I am really happy with my purchase. Nice vivid orange better than the picture. The controllers really stand out. I also bought the normal xbox one controller shell in same color so now they match. Unfortunately this one does not come with side grips in the same color which i would have bought, the one for standard controller does. The silky paint is also very nice to touch and won't slip in your hand. I would and probably will buy another one if this one breaks. And another thing, mine does fit flush but it is all a matter of screwing the ,well, screws straight and not at an angle. Easily rectifiable.
Thrilled with this product!
I should preface this review with that, for the price, this is an absolute steal for changing up your Elite controller, and far cheaper than alternatives.
Installed this when I got the standard problems with Right and Left Bumpers on the Elite Controller1, was really easy to install when the more complicated bumper replacement was done.
