    Broke After 4 Months' Light Use

    This adapter, like another reviewer stated, was great while it worked. After 4 months, the adapter was not recognized by the computer. X-Box tells us the adapters are only under warranty for 90 days and it broke shortly thereafter, after very little use! It was suggested the game be deleted and reloaded again in case there was a "driver error" causing the computer's failure to recognize the adapter. That solution did not work. $25 is too expensive to purchase any product that will only last 4 months. I wonder how many of the reviewers who wrote it was excellent actually had it fail shortly after warranty. If we could give less than one star, we would.

    Didn't have all the functionality I needed

    I got this wireless adapter for two reasons... to hook up my xbox one controller to PC and to use my wireless turtle beach stealth 600 headset I had bought for my xbox one on PC as well. I was able to hook up my xbox controller no problem, and whereas the turtlebeach headset does connect to my PC audio there is absolutely no way (that I could find) to get the mic to work. This totally defeated the point of hooking up my headset to my gaming pc... if you're getting this just to connect your xbox headset to PC I'd recommend just getting another headset designed for pc

    A smaller version of the previous wireless adapter

    It has the same functionality as the previous wireless adapter to connect a Xbox controller. The size of the adapter is smaller than the previous version, which makes it easier to connect directly without the issue of it blocking other usb ports. It also include a usb cable to adjust the location of the adapter from the computer. It works right out of the box with Windows installing the drivers automatically. It includes instructions to connect the Xbox controller. It works great with games such as open world games like Assassin's Creed Origins.

    for a long time I've been having the issue with constant disconnect reconnect form my Bluetooth on my Xbox One controller to my gaming laptop I bought from Best Buy. I thought it was just cheap batteries so I kept replaceing them every few weeks. then I found out they had this to work with the controllers from a friend of mine that was having the same issues and it was pretty inexpensive so I purchased it and it works perfectly. It only takes less than 2 to 3 seconds for the evening connect it's just super awesome I can't say more great things about it

    I had a few XBOX One controllers, but I haven't been playing it very often and instead have been playing on my laptop. But I don't want to use a keyboard and mouse, I'm much more of a controller player, and with so many games on consoles available on PC, it just made sense to use controllers I'd already purchased to play on my laptop! I was happy to see this adapter existed, and was also so cheap. It works great! It just plugs in, you connect your controller, and that's it!

    X-BOX wireless adapter review

    When I bought an X-BOX ONE game console I had several game controllers and a computer so it was natural I had to have a way to use a game controller with my computer, right? So I purchased a X-BOX wireless adapter so I could use an X-BOX controller and play on my computer. Some of the X-BOX games can also be played on your computer as well as on the X-BOX console.

    I love this adapter because it did exactly what I needed it to do. All I needed was for my wireless Xbox controller to pair with my PC (my pc didn’t have Bluetooth capabilities, hence why I needed the adapter) and this product did it! Not to mention, the setup surprised me because of how super easy and fast it was. I recommend this to anyone over the insignia adapter!

    This is my second adapter. The first one (older model) still works, I use it on a gaming computer. This one (newer model) is smaller, and has a much better sync button and a USB cap. Same price as the old one, so it's an improvement on everything. Works great.

    This is a great accessory for those who also use their pc on a big screen and have to sit a good distance away from their setup. Allows you to connect multiple controllers. The usb is very small and does not take up much space at all on your pc.

    Having a brand new custom gaming computer and XBox One I shouldn’t need this, but I do and it works as it should. It even took a hit when I “bump” it straight out of the USB port, plugged it back in and went back to gaming.

    I own the first generation on these wireless Xbox One adapters for PC and man was it huge! This is a nice change of pace: Lightweight, small, connects and keeps connection better than previous version and at a reasonable price. Get it already!!

    Purchased for my grandson to use with his pc for gaming and xbox. Was reluctant in buying cause reviews stated it "was difficult to get to work". My grandson is 13 and seems to have had no trouble with it.

    Use this with my new Dell G7 laptop. Easy to sinc up to my XBOX One wireless controller. I do have to occasionally go in my computer and get it to recognize but that may be an issue with the computer.

    Only reason I bought this was because the headset i bought needed it to work. They told me when i bought my headset it had everything i needed for it to work, but got home and discovered i needed this.

    I used this adapter to connect my Xbox One controller to my PC. I have used it with several emulators and have never had any problems. Pairing the controllers takes less than 30 seconds.

    Very easy setup to connect the controller to the Xbox app on Windows! Nice to have to turn your PC into your Xbox system or use your controller for any gaming.

    Awesome to play emulators on your pc. 4 player action using the newer controllers. 8 player if using older style controller. Links up fine and also compatible with my pc games. Go MSFT!

    With most controllers requiring to be HID compliant in the latest build of Win 10 this was the perfect solution. I already had a Xbox one x controller and worked flawlessly.
