    Great controller, slick style, raise / lower D-pad

    I needed a new Xbox 360 controller, due to my old controllers having too much wear and tear. This controller was on sale and I liked the shiny gold faceplate and black backing style. All of the buttons and knobs have been re-designed from the original 360 controllers to be more responsive and comfortable. The best feature is the ability to twist the D-pad to either have an easier to use raised D-pad or the old, lowered, circular D-pad, that was a bit annoying for some gamers.

    I got this because I wanted to play various Steam games with a wireless controller. What I didn't know was that I could buy the wireless adapter for 16 bucks on a poplar shopping website that starts with an A. The adapter is the same as what comes with this one, but allows you to use Xbox controller if you already have them. Net out: If you don't currently have any controllers for an Xbox 360 get this. Otherwise, research your options.

    I bought this controller because I was in need of a new controller and wanted something other than the generic black. I ended up getting this chrome looking one and I definitely like the looks of it when I play it. Too bad it won't be in use for long before the Xbox 360 gets phased out completely for the new generation console Xbox One. I do notice that it tends to get much more visible smudges but nothing a bit of cleaning won't handle. All in all a definite buy if it gets on sale.

    I wanted a 2nd wireless gamepad to use with my Nexus player that also would work on my PC. That meant that the Asus gamepad for the Nexus Player was out as my gaming PC doesn't have bluetooth. This gamepad turned out to fit my needs perfectly. To use this with the Nexus Player, make sure you have an OTG cable to plug into it's USB port, then plug in the gamepad's INCLUDED wireless transceiver into the OTG cable. No extra software or configuration needed...it just works!

    I purchased it as a part of a Daily Deal for $35 so I couldn't pass it up since my other controller's thumbsticks are starting to float around making navigating in most games a pain! Xbox 360 controllers are incredibly comfortable as per usual and this one is no exception. Transforming d-pad is kinda gimmicky but it works well. The thumbsticks feel great too and I don't think they'll wear down as much as my older controller since the material used feels different and more coarse.

    Best PC game controller for the causal gamer!

    Microsoft did this one right, if you have a Windows machine you want to game on, this is the controller to get! Works without installing any drivers, this controller is truly plug and play. I prefer the USB connection because I don't want to deal with batteries or input lag. Build quality is fantastic. I've held some other game controllers and if you give it a good squeeze, you'll hear some creaking under pressure. Button travel is short with little play.

    I came to Best Buy looking for a wired controller but they didn't have any in store. I had rewards built up so I ended up buying this controller for way less than regular price, but I definitely would not have bought it full price when there are cheaper options out there that work just as well. The controller build is nice and it works ok, but does have the occasional connection issue. I'll keep it because it's decent for the price that I paid for it.

    It's an xbox 360 controller! If you don't know how it feels in your hand by now, well, you're probably not a gamer =P If you have small hands, it might be slightly uncomfortable for you. But they would have to be PRETTY SMALL for that to happen. Not too heavy, not too light. I'd say just right. Easy to install on a PC. Just install the drivers first, then plug in the dongle... turn the control on (after you install the batteries of course,) and off you go.

    I was just mentioning to friends that last gen accessories had not gone on sale, then BAM! I found this controller at price that I had not seen for controllers since the other big box store went out of business. I like deals and I got this controller at a good price, and now friends don't need to bring their controllers with them when they come over to play. Don't buy at full price for the design, wait for a sale, they should come more often now that next gen consoles are out.

    Works Great but needs good instructions.

    I had difficulty connecting the device as there is no instructions on the disk or on Microsofts Web site. Read review where the controller did not work. I pressed the receiver button and the small buttion on the back of the controller to connect. I realized this from other wireless devices I used. Once I found the receiver I used it for my Bat Arkham City game and it works great. An excellent controller and very to use.

    I've been a huge PC gamer my whole life, did play Console also and shooters such as Battlefield series have A LOT going on and on the console the controls are perfect. On the PC, we get much smoother and better graphics but it can be very difficult trying to fly helicopters and jets with a mouse.. So this controller makes things much better!! Get the benefits of a PC and the ease of controls from the controller for best possible game play! Definitely recommend it!!

    A great responsive and controller with a great range. Bear in mind, you're buying this to play on PC since it's wireless you need to also but a xbox wireless receiver to plug in a USB port. After I brought this controller, I had to wait a week for my receiver to come in the mail from eBay. There are plenty of them out there, official and 3rd party ones. I found an official one for $16, but there were cheap ones for 5 to 10 dollars as well.

    Good Controller but a Hog on Batteries

    It was an easy install of drivers and connecting for the first time. It works great with the games I use it for, very little adaption needed. The only flaw is that It eats AA Batteries like their is no tomorrow. Every two weeks of constant use I have had to replace the batteries. If it came with a rechargeable battery pack it would have got a better rating. My recomendations is invest in a rechargeable battery pack or batteries at least two sets.

    take wireless technology to the next level. Experience precision and comfort with the Xbox 360 Wireless Controller. Feel the freedom of no restraints as you enhance your gaming pleasure. Powerful 2.4GHz wireless technology with a 30' range should be enough to accommodate almost any room and TV size, and controller response is lag-free. This unit also features adjustable vibration feedback. Free yourself and leave bothersome wires in the past where they belong.

    I may cave and get the rechargable battery at least for the one my husband uses,,, He plays a little more often that I do and he's going through batteries a lot. The great thing about these controllers are they are wireless, let you turn the XBoX on and off, and I love that they don't get tangled in things or scare my dog like the old ones did (he was deathly afraid of those cords). Overall, definitely worth it, but might look into the recharagable battery to go with it.

    Wires? Wires?

    I've had a pair of the original wired 360 controllers for my PC for a couple years now. After finally picking up a 360 with wireless controllers, I want the wireless receiver for pc use as well. No tangles, no piles of wires next to the console, no having to figure out who is player 1 and who is 2. The controller also turns off when not in use and will shut down with the 360 so as to conserve power. Couple this with the recharge pack and there's no worries about downtime either.

    Great and simple to use. This control is great for that pc gamer that HATES using the keyboard as much as I do but loves using the Xbox controller. You just need to plug in and go. That's simple. It works just like any xbox controller is used but contols your computer. This is also a great product too because it gives you a second xbox controller if you have an xbox 360. You just need to sync up the controller with your Xbox like you do with any other controller

    Good Controller Using on PC and Mac

    Really like this controller. On my Mac and PC it works great. I am not an avid gamer, but I like to play some games and they just are so much better with a controller and not a keyboard and mouse. I have always been the one to want to save money, and would normally buy a third party used controller, but I figured that the Wireless ones for the XBOX 360 are still working for over 4 years, so I think this one should last just as long. Game On!!

    Good, solid product here. Works well, and no complaints based on what you would expect. Sometimes my son uses this and gets angry at the game and... well... these things don't like to be thrown at the wall. Doesn't end well. For the controller, or for the wall. However, that's not what these are meant for, and not what the user should be doing. You know what you're getting with this, and as long as you avoid fits of rage, these last.

    I bought this from Best Buy since I wanted to pick it up at a local store rather than wait for shipping while using another online shopping site. Also I have to pay taxes either way, so felt getting reward zone points for purchase is better. I also got the price matched with another online retailer's price, that way did not feel I was paying excess for this amount. Overall this product meets my expectations. It works perfectly and I have not had any issues so far.
