A good wired PS4 controller

Postby RockMonster » Mon Nov 27, 2017 6:09 pm

Just wondering if anyone had any suggestions for a good wired controller. The port to game on all of my stock controllers are broke. I have purchased 3 controllers in the last year. Sooooo with the T2 currently needing to be wired I need to either purchase yet another stock controller or find a sturdy wired controller. Maybe others could let me know what they prefer

We are few weeks to have the Titan Two Bluetooth Module available.

for the wired PS4 controller, please check the Nacon Revolution Pro. The connection on the controller is pretty strong.

At least in theory it is pretty strong, but the reviews of the controller say otherwise.

I've also got some personal experience with M8 and M12 connectors from work (my day job is industrial automation). I'm 90% certain the R1 Pro connector is an M12 connector. The R2 is USB Type-C. We've stripped threads on M8 connectors quite frequently, and while you'd think an M12 should be practically invincible against impact, we killed 2-3 of those in as many weeks trying to remove the cover from a new vehicle design. It was such an issue we completely redesigned the weldment where the device in question was being mounted in order to relocate it a few additional inches away from the cover. Nacon will not sell replacement parts, and in single quantities, an M8 connector suitable for making your own replacement cable is going to cost on the order of 40-50USD. (M8/M12 cables are strange in that it's often much cheaper to buy premade cables than bare connectors!)

To the OP - I'm a bit surprised your controller connector itself is wearing out - with the move from USB Mini-B to Micro-B, the spring contacts were moved from the socket (device) to plug (cable) - so USUALLY the cable's connector wears out but not the device. I've only seen one Micro-B socket fail, but I've seen LOTS of cable plugs fail. Did you try just swapping the USB cable out?

The TL;DR - Do not private message me unless your question HAS to be private, please ask questions in a public location. I will not answer PMs that contain non-private questions.

I own a Nacon Pro controller and i'm constantly screwing the cable because it disconnects the controller off the Titans.

I noticed that it seems to lack the racheting/clicking (it's hard to describe) retention method I've seen in most M12 connectors - although that method seems much rarer in M8 connectors.

My Nacon Pro is boxed up for return to Amazon - I'm MUCH happier with T2 + Xbox Elite, and I haven't even finished tuning my macros yet. The PS4 controller is just for auth at this point.

That's it, there is no racheting/clicking :thumbsdownsmileyanim:

Yes that's what i should have done... For the price i'm disappointed. The controller have some pros but is far from the elite controller!
