Hori Xbox One Controller Horipad Review For PC Windows 8
We’re reviewing the Horipad Xbox One Controller. For our purposes, we’re actually covering usage for PC Gaming on Windows. The Horipad works just like the Xbox 360 or Xbox One controller on PC. Just install the official drivers from Microsoft and it will work seamlessly through XInput with your PC Games just like the official Xbox controllers. The Horipad has the same asymmetrical thumbstick layout. The thumbsticks are actually more similar to the 360 with larger size and 4 small groves. The D-Pad is square and precise as opposed to the 360 circular Dpad. Buttons are relatively flat and the handles actually feel similar to a dualshock controller. The triggers are a little more like big flat buttons.
They are responsive, but they lack the degree of analog movement that the traditional Xbox controllers have. This controller is wired with a USB connection on the end. This works very well on PC because Xbox One controllers do not currently have wireless support and you don’t have to worry about bluetooth pairing or charging. The controller is built just as solid as the official Xbox controllers, so you don’t have to worry about a cheap 3rd party controller falling apart on you. In fact, it’s officially licensed by Microsoft for the Xbox One. As far as quality and function, I can highly recommend the horipad. You won’t have any problems using this for gaming. Comparing feel and grip to the official Xbox One Controller, it definitely is different and this is a matter of preference. It currently retails at $which is cheaper than the official Xbox One Controller and is a great solution of PC Gaming.
