  • Good replacement joystick

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    This replacement joystick works just like the original joystick. the form factor matches circuit board precisely, so fitting it onto the circuit board is easy.

    Cons:

    The pins were a bit bent after shipping, but did not affect function. Once the pins were straightened out, the joystick fit into the circuit board easily.

    OtherThoughts:

    This is an inexpensive way to replace worn parts on the Xbox controller. After replacement, the controller had the feel of a new unit.
    You must be comfortable desoldering and soldering on a circuit board. Also, make sure you have the correct Torx screwdriver to open the Xbox controller.

    Bottomline:

    This is much cheaper than buying a replacement controller. As long as you can desolder and solder on a circuit board, you can replace the joystick in an Xbox controller.
