Thoughts and Conclusion
The GameSir G7 controller is a nice, if not more affordable, alternative to some of the other wired options available for Xbox, especially those with official licensing.
We like the various customization features including the extra faceplate that comes in the box. There’s plenty of control over how the buttons work, their respective modes, and we always appreciate when there are extra buttons to configure.
Also helpful is the ability to create user profiles. This is handy when you split time with your gaming accessories and don’t want to spend time re-mapping everything.
Response rates are very good and from everything we can see and feel, this operates as good, if not better, than official controllers we’ve used.
You can learn more about the GameSir G7 Controller and/or purchase yours for about $45.
