EasySMX Wireless 2.4g Game Controller
I was very impressed when I received this, the controller seems very well made, it looks great and feels good in the hands. I have previously been using a wired Xbox 360 controller on my PC which does work well but I do have the hassle of the long wire draped across my desk, to be honest the cable is a nuisance when not in use too. I purchased this wireless controller in the hope that I could use this to replace the wired Xbox 360 controller. I'm pleased to say that this feels equally as good to me so the wired controller has now been pensioned off to the cupboard.
This EasySMX controller seems very well made, there are no sharp edges to the plastic that I could detect, in fact it feels very solid indeed. The joysticks feel smooth in operation and the buttons give a positive click when depressed. On either side of the controller are two rubberised grip areas which help the controller fit comfortably in the hands without sliding around. The body of the controller has a slightly camouflaged look to it with a subtle matt finish. You are also supplied with a small USB receiver which you plug into a spare USB port on your PC to allow the controller to communicate. I have only tested this on a PC as I don't own a PS3 or desire to use this on the other listed compatible devices.
On the underside of the controller is a small battery compartment which is easily removed by way of a small button. I easily inserted two AA batteries and plugged the USB receiver into a spare USB port on my PC. Within seconds the controller was up and running having been recognised almost immediately by my operating system (Windows 10). I then opened up a steam game which was called Ark, the controller was instantly recognised by the game. Whilst gaming I found the controller to be very smooth indeed, all buttons worked positively. What I particularly liked about this controller is that whilst looking around via the small joystick the look function was really smooth and sensitive. With a gentle touch you can look around very slowly indeed, push a little further and it speeds up, the transformation is very smooth indeed. It will move slowly from static to looking around quickly in a very natural way, there is no jitter or skipping whatsoever. The built in vibration feels good too, it feels realistic, it's not too harsh.
I am highly delighted with this controller, I was concerned that it wouldn't be as good as my existing wired controller but I have found that this EasySMX Wireless 2.4g Game Controller performs very well indeed. Changing the batteries is a doddle, just press a button and the battery holder pops out, insert the batteries and you are ready to go. Battery life seems very good too, the manual states that a set of 1800mAh batteries should give 20 hours of use if using the vibration feature, without vibration you should get up to 90 hours use.
I am very pleased with this wireless controller, it is now a permanent fixture to my gaming rig - Highly Recommended!!
