    I've had a Sabertooth since it released and the only thing I'd replace it with is the Xbox One controller if Razer ever releases their version. The only controller I've had that is better then the Sabertooth is the previous generation of Razer controllers and honestly the Sabertooth is leaps and bounds ahead of it.

    I’m glad you decided to go with the Razer Sabertooth. Personally I think the Razer Sabretooth is a very comfortable controller and a very good choice.

    In all honesty, just a plain and simple wired Xbox 360 controller is the most cost effective controller that you can get.

    LOL wat? Scuff has a terrible rank in the better business bureau for a reason..... granted I love their thumbsticks and the grip is phenominal, but the coating on the Sabretooth is almost as good. The rockers are way easier to hit than the stiff paddles, and Razer has MUCH better quality control and price points.

    have you used a scuf hybrid? and how do you hold a regular controller? because i don't rest my fingers it the middle of the back especially if its wireless

    plus razers quality is horrible on anything other than mice and keyboards well and mouse pads that hard to mess up. at least in my experience

    I have used an Xbox one scuff quite a bit and have toyed around with a couple 360 models, I have a buddy who used to play competitively, so he has a bunch of that stuff. He and I even helped a local mod guy develop some cool stuff for custom controllers. I own one of those custom controllers myself as well as a sabretooth, and have spent time using a scuff in comparison as well. So I knew what I was talking about when I typed my last comment. Scuff has great grip, and I really like their thumbsticks, but that is about it. The paddles are very stiff compared to what I use and to the Sabretooth. I had tac switches put in where my middle fingers usually rest but adjusting to the placement of the rockers on the Sabretooth isn't bad at all. Scuff also has no quality control. They do not test their controllers after modding them. And Scuff is more expensive than the Sabretooth and my custom controller. Scuff has a horrible better business bureau rating for a reason. I have also had my Sabretooth for like a year and a half with no issues, and it travels with me alot.

    I have had my sabertooth for over 2 years, still works perfectly, no broken buttons, can still change button configuration best controller in my opinion. @Destrok thanks for the feedback was thinking of buying a scuff controller till I read this. I will just keep my sabertooth till it dies then replace it with another

    My experience is the opposite. Everything I've bought from them aside from the Adora in-ear headsets has been amazing quality. I think I already said it once in this thread but I own a Sabertooth and would highly recommend it to anyone to get over any other console controller.

    Scuff controllers are super nice if you get a good one, but they are EXPENSIVE and if you already have a sabretooth stick with it.

    I agree, it is 1/4 the price of a sabra tooth when is on sale.

    who told you scuf doesnt test there controllers? because they definitely do.
  17. The Sabertooth as it has four extra buttons and feels comfortable in the hands, plus the steam controller lacks analog sticks which may be unnatural for first time users

    They have a couple college kids on a production line who screw things in, press a button twice, and throw it in a box. To truly test it you need to plug it in to a laptop and run a program that shows your range of motion and how well things actuate. It is actually really cool, my mod guy uses it for every controller he works on, and half the time he has some adjusting to do. Scuff isn't a factory so they don't have factory level precision on installs so there is some tinkering required to get everything to optimal performance.

    The following is a warning from the better business bureau. Although Scuff has recently raised their rating by addressing as many of the complaints as possible.

    SCUF Gaming's website states "that all SCUF controllers are made to order. You will not be able to return any product unless the product is defective. SCUF accepts the return of items if they are faulty or were supplied in error."

    Consumers allege they order a controller(s) which took up to three months to receive. After receiving the order some consumers allege the product only worked for 30 seconds and then the product would not charge or work at all. Consumers also allege their SCUF Gaming controller was sent back for repair due to the controller not powering on even after the required time for charging in addition to waiting 30 minutes after charging and that they paid for shipping back to the company. Complaints also state that once the consumers received the controller it would only turn on when plugged in to the charger but not when unplugged. Consumers have also alleged that although they paid for "Rush My SCUF" for a 2 day product build and 2 day shipping, orders were not received in the promised timeframe. Consumers state that SCUF does not reply back to emails, support tickets, or even answer the phone. Some consumers have stated that they have waited on the phone for more than an hour and then they were hung up on.

    The company has responded to complaints sent by BBB by referencing their website for shipping information, or stating that the product has been delivered. They also hope to improve their processes to satisfy their customers. They appreciate the customer's business and overall patience.

    I actually like some of the stuff scuff makes, alot. I am not out to say they are just the worst ever, but you keep saying I don't know what I am talking about, so I am simply backing up my opinions. I like the things scuff does when they do them right. But I still think the Sabretooth is a better way to go.

    Like I said I LOVE the scuf grip and thumbsticks, I just think the Sabretooth is a better overall package.
