    Lightbulb Which is the most Durable Controller for PC?

    I have used many controllers till now. Have broken all of them. Its not like I dont handle them properly. All gone bust due to heavy use.

    When talked about durable controllers over the internet, I have seen people suggesting the x360 and ps3 controllers... I dont feel the x360 is perfect ergonomically... and not sure of the ps3 controller can be connected with the PC at all...


    As a cheapo fix, I was wondering whether a PS2 Controller with a PS2 to USB converter could do the trick. I am assuming PS2 controllers cheaper than x360 or PS3 controllers...

    Link of the PS2 to USB converter http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...pf_rd_i=507846

    Suggest if you have any other controllers you know about that can sustain heavy use.

    Use the Razer Sabertooth ones, or the Razer Onza or the Wired Xbox 360 controller

    Wired 360 Controller. Have been using mine for 6 years. No problems except the analogue cover wears off after 2-4 years.

    Well, read varying responses from people about the Onza... it doesnt seem to be known for its strength.

    Of course I am using the real one. I wouldn't recommend a fake one to anybody. Those 600 taka ones don't last even a few months. The real ones should be available in Rifles Square, aka Shimanto Square. And definitely available in Banani.

    Thats the thing...

    There are no real xbox 360 controllers in BD.... none...

    Those that cost around 1700-2400 are all the fake ones... there is no way you can find whether they are fake or not by looks...

    The only originals that come to bd are with the consoles I guess... but you wont be able to buy them seperately I guess...

    Well, you gotta take the risks to buy anything which is powered by electrical engineering. Take the xbox for example, if you play it too much or don't cool it down enough, you'll get the rrod or the rdod judging by which console you buy, i bought an apex controller and it looked like the ps2 controller but it died only two months of usage. Moral story is: You can't really rely on electric devices these days because they will give flaws.

    Taking all of those vulnerabilities into account...

    Well, the wired ones are tough unless you are a hardcore gamer and will play games for about 10-12 hours consistently then the controller will tear-off, the wireless ones sucks, i owned one and it just broke after i mistakenly dropped it on the ground. Get wired controllers and be kind to them, you should be fine i believe
