  • Dual-stage triggers can be used as analog, digital, or both types of input at the same time. Put your iron-sights on the sweep-in, and then fire with the reliable feel of a tactile switch, all on the same trigger.
  • Each of the Steam Controller's input zones and buttons has been positioned based on frequency of use, required precision, and ergonomic comfort.

So tempted for the price. Looks cool but I don't don't think I'd ever use it instead of my normal tower setup.

I ordered one back when it was $20. Hooked it up.

Then proceeded to never use it and instead just stream to the media PC already hooked up to my TV.

If you don't already have some other computing device hooked up to your TV, this thing would be great. For me, though, it was a waste of money.

Received from Amazon Warehouse today. Once I went to Steam settings on my PC to:

1. Enable streaming.
2. Enable controllers for use in game. They worked fine to control the interface, but had to be activated to work in game.

It worked well.
