Got my controller within a week. Shipping went smoothly and the package was well secured. Controller works like a dream, and when i had questions, support instantly worked with me and found answers within the hour. Will be buying my next controller from here soon.
The YubiDeck was a breeze to setup with simulators and arcade games. The manual is in English and is really nice to help get everything assembled and setup. The folding stands helps to quickly stow the controller away, and the IC card reader is a nice touch.
Setting the controller up with UMIGURI was very easy using Slidershim, you can even get LEDs to work in response with the game. The additional adjustments and calibration to the panel that can be done relatively quickly on the fly is super nice for being able to fix issues fast. Best of all is that the Discord was able to answer literally anything I had on my mind very quickly. Great product from hardware to software and great design and support.
In short, what the title says is my opinion. From the beginning, I've tried many options including DIY and *the other one* you probably know too. However, I think I finally found the right one.
Yubideck is built with nice glossy coated metal and it gives solid feeling. The real game changer is the main touch area, which could be seen as matte and rough surface but it's really smooth in reality. I even played pretty high level charts with my bare hands without any problem. My extra points for plug-and-play just like as it should be, and nfc card reader with led lights which is nice touch if I should say.
Besides controller, I should thank Tim for nice ordering experience. He helped me choosing the right delivery option and during set this controller up to my needs.
Overall, I'm quite impressed! You probably won't regret.
