on my 8th (soon to be 9th) xb360 controller since I bought the slim in September 2010. The left analog stick always ends up with perma drift either to the left or right. Every controller (except for my newest one) microsoft official brand controller. Tired of this shit, I bought a rock candy controller 4 weeks ago. Overall used it about a total of 30 hours over the course of the last few weeks. Last night it too stop working properly and has perma drift to the right. Needless to say the store won't take it back because the 30 day warranty has expired. In the past I have taken the metal clip from the right stick of another xbox 360 and used it has replacement. Temporary fixed if it worked. But would always end up failing again. Tried buying packs of replacement clips made originally for ps3 controllers and this too ended up with eventual failure. Is there any xbox 360 controllers out there that are not shitty and will last more than 1-2 years?
