Fine piece of tournament ready gaming hardware
Pros Premium quality Comfortable grip and feel Slick and satisfying design Great battery life Modular and great range of customisation Seamless wireless and wired performance for PC and PlayStation 4 Cons Expensive Has no battery life indicator Quite bulky I was excited to unbox the Astro C40 and it didn't disappoint. This oozes quality and performs exquisitely for pro or casual gamers. The Astro C40 TR has the slick premium look with the satisfying feel of a tournament grade controller. The controller has high quality snappy buttons and triggers which have the right amount of resistance, and analog sticks which glide effortlessly. Pair this with the pleasing rubber-like coating and groves on the back of the handles make the Astro CE40 TR feel ergonomic and feels great the moment you pick it up. It is a quite bulky for a PS4 controller which does feel quite weird and can be likened to the bulky Xbox 360 controller from back in the day but this is something you do get used to due rather quickly. The big selling point for the Astro C40 is the customisation, which is amazing. The C40 controller offers a ton of customisation options; It has the ability to swap the location of the analog sticks and d-pad (it’s as easy as removing the face plate and swapping the components around which snap into mechanical slots which literally takes a few seconds), the controller has two rear triggers at the back, plus two mechanical switches above these and by using Astros free software you can remap pretty much every button on the controller. It doesn’t stop there you can also adjust the vibration intensity, adjust analog sticks and change the LED brightness. All settings are saved locally on the controller itself meaning it doesn’t matter which PS4/PC you play on the settings will remain the same. The C40 comes with a wireless dongle and can be used in wired mode. After using the controller extensively on wireless, I must say there is certainly no issue with performance as the controller is able to sustain a fast and reliable connection. One of my gripes with this controller is that you cannot power on your PS4 with the PlayStation button, and have to turn it on manually unless you use a DualShock controller, I know this is a minor inconvenience but a feature I would have liked to see nonetheless. Another great feature is the battery life, I have tried and tested this beast and it stays with me to the end. I can get a marathon 12-hour gaming session from this controller. Overall, I love everything about this controller from the overall design to the functionality of the controller. The pros definitely outweigh the cons, and this is the least you would expect for the hefty price tag. However, if you are in the market for a fine piece of tournament ready gaming hardware then look no further. This really is perfect for an array of games such as shooters, fighting games, battle royale’s and other intense action games. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
Good solid build
A controller for the serious gamer. The ability to change the layout of the buttons is novel. I guess it allows you to make the layout work for you. I didn't see the point of the extra customisable buttons to begin with but being able to choose which function you want them to be can help you more than you think!

Great controller pad
The C40 TR Controller is a great addition to the Playstation 4 for any avid gamer. The control pad has a durability to it that is unparalleled against controllers in a comparable price range. The buttons are responsive and are well placed. I would definitely recommend. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
