[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The Spectra wired controller is a great replacement or add-on controller overall. Right off the bat, I like that you get a 10 foot, braided cord that actually has a snap-in connection so that it doesn't accidentally get pulled out if game play gets a little too crazy. The controller is a flat black, which actually goes well with any of the lighting options you choose to program into the controller.
It is standard size and comfortable to the hands with some grip on the underside. The buttons all worked easily and as they were supposed to. One of the newer buttons, the screenshot button made it really simple, via the press of one button, to take a screenshot and then Xbox automatically uploads it to your folder where you can choose to share or not. The reprogrammable button option is handy too. There are two and each rests directly under where the middle finger rests. The one downside is that I found myself accidentally pressing them during gameplay but I guess that is something I'll eventually have to learn to be more careful with.
The volume toggle switch was in an easy to locate area and was simple to toggle left and right without having to look at the controller. Lastly, if you like precision trigger pulls, for any game, the trigger locks will be a game changer. If you like your trigger extra sensitive on sniper missions and less than for throttling a racer, this option will be a must have on any future controller and you won't want to game without it. Now if they just made this controller with a smaller option for younger or more petite players, it would be perfect.
