hey....i am forced to get a new contoller...because my 2 madcatz broke...piece of ****...anyway....im considering of getting te AirFlo controller....does anyone have it? What do u think of it?

I've got the Airflo. It's a good controller, the joysticks are really nice and the fans work well; however the buttons stick a little and the d-pad is less than exactly accurate. There's also a computer-case-fan shaped fan sticking out the back of the controller that makes it a little awkward to hold the controller in a comfortable way.
And despite my misgivings with it originally, and my on going dislike of the new button layout, the controller S is a pretty good controller. The d-pad feels nice and the joysticks are really good. The handles should be longer on it, and the new button placement makes little to no sense, but it's a good sturdy feeling controller. Of course you could always go for the tried and true "fatty" original xbox controller, and if d-pads don't make a difference to you, then I recommend the Interac powerpad pro.

I have 2 normal (fatty) ones and one working Madcatz....im dont want the normal one...

The airflo is a good idea and if thats not what you're looking for, go with an S. But...........I still think the original is the best of all. :D

My favorite is the madcatz micron, its not a piece of sh it like the bigger ones. :)

Why would you get a mad catz? Third party controllers are horrible.

The AirFlow is decent..the buttons aren't THAT responsive, but it's pretty good. I usually let my friend use it when I sleep over his house, or he sleeps over mine..he likes it a lot..i just..i dunno, I think it's alright.

Buy 2 "S" controller and forget about the aftermarket crap. My friend bought two madcatz. Not only did they suck, but both of them broke.

Once you start using the S controllers you won't go back. I hated the big Shamoo controllers that the Xbox originally came out with. But once I started using the S. That's all she wrote...

Like i said before this controller has worked perfect and the analog sticks are actually way smoother then any of my other controllers and all teh buttons are very responsive. It's nothing like the bigger madcats, that one sucks.

I was going to pick up a micron but when i went to get it eb was out so i bought two "japanese edition" S controllers. But then I won my AirFlo off of xba and I dont use that. Now I have 4 S controllers and 1 airflo.

the s controller is teh rulest. I couldn't play tony hawk 3 with the original big controllers, not because it was bigger but because of the buttons.....they weren't working when i was doing multi combo tricks and such. I decided that i needed a new controller to play that game so i got the s controller. I have 1 s controller and 2 original controllers for my xbox. I use the s controller and the other 2 are for peeps who play wiv me sometimes.

Get the s controller or get that one logitech that is half the price of other competitors.......the yahoo link, GET THAT that looks sweet, or get the s controller.

I like the madcatz microcon alot...but the controller s is still the best. Usually I will use the S, and if I have been playing for a while, I will switch to the micro so i can play with a cold controller. In all, I would say go with the S. I dont know how the airflow is, but I have had my eye on it

Buy first party...they are the most reliable. Purchasing any third party controller provides a risk...atleast in my experience.

08-16-2003, 10:53 PM
i would just stick w/ the original controller that comes w/ the xbox or the S because they are the most durable plus the airflo fan cover breaks VERY easly

08-17-2003, 02:09 PM
The S is the best. :cheers:
