Apart from looking wicked, anything else to note? Well, it turns out that chrome is a fingerprint magnet so does require an occasional rub down to keep it looking tip top. Comparing to my existing controller, the cut of the shell component is not as smooth as an official controller. It is hardly noticeable and after a while you cannot notice, but you can tell when you look closely. I think this is a perfectly good trade off for a good value original accessory. Also, the first time I played with the controller, the right trigger got stuck and did not spring back fast enough. To sort this I had to dismantle the controller again to see what was causing the problem. The problem was one of the new triggers was suffering from friction where it attached to the internal trigger arm. I sorted this by removing about 1mm from the part of the trigger that connects to the arm - sorted.
