Reviews around issue (5.00 of 5)

  • Its a well known issue that HTC has yet to address
  • As far as I'm concerned, the controllers need to be recalled and a proper replacement issued

Reviews around carpet (5.00 of 5)

  • My system was brand new direct from HTC and only used controllers 2 days and one bricked from 18 inch roll off couch onto soft carpet.
  • If it falls from couch cushion to plush carpet while powered on it will brick

Reviews around customer support (5.00 of 5)

  • The customer support told me that they couldn't handle my issue regardless of warranty because it isn't suitable in my region, being in AP,FPO
  • I highly advise against getting a vive because its been nothing but a nightmare with customer support and controller issues

Reviews around cable (5.00 of 5)

  • And to top it off, fixing it yourself has about a 20% chance of ruining an important and irreplaceable small electrical cable inside of the controller

Reviews around purchase (5.00 of 5)

  • With new controllers costing around $150, I might as well purchase a Rift and never have issues ever again

Reviews around controller (2.05 of 5)

  • Controller works great, was easy to set up and has met all my expectations
  • I have not purchased a new controller yet, but the controllers I have from the original packaging are faulty
  • I love my Vive, but I can’t wait for some third party manufacturer to create a worthy controller.
  • HTC is going to make a killing off people buying an extra $125 controller so they can use their system while they take weeks fixing or replacing bricked controller.
  • I purchased the HTC Vive locally, contacted HTC when my controller became defective after just a week
  • Read remaining 22 reviews for controller

Reviews around design flaw (1.00 of 5)

  • There is an obvious design flaw and the only reason I bought this extra controller was so that I still had two while they decided on repairing the other or replacing it
  • The reason they easily earn 2 stars is because they have a very consistent design flaw (that for some reason they never fixed as reviews poured out) that causes the clicking function of the touchpad to deteriorate, eventually losing 1 or all 4 sides of clicking capability

Reviews around wall (1.00 of 5)

  • I smacked a wall in my play area and it skewed the right side of the tracking pad
  • and with games like GORN, I've smacked the walls a few times
