Err… no, they are fine, reliable, and cheap for PC use, which was the question asked at the beginning of the thread.
They are not suitable for XBox use, but that wasn’t the original question now, was it? What’s happened here is essentially someone’s asked for the best torque wrench, someone else has made a recommendation, and then a third party complained that the recommendation is a poor one because it doesn’t hammer nails in very well, which was never the original query.
If you want to use a pad for consoles, then buy a console pad (gasp, shock, horror). Also be aware that they tend to be more expensive and complex, but that’s fine if you are intending to use it on multiple platforms, or on the consoles for which they are intended.
I have to agree with the above poster however - I hate converters. I much prefer to build a stick per platform. It also ensures that I can try out different parts, or use the same brand parts on each stick and eliminate wear and tear that I would get if I was always using one stick.
Plus I quite enjoy building sticks, so making more isn’t a drama. Each to their own.
