    It's a shame with all the advanced wireless adaptors that are in the latest Tech we still have silly Microsoft forcing us to buy their "proprietary" BT adapter in order to use their products. I have the XBOX ELITE controller($150) that I wanted to connect to my Alienware m17 ($2800)Laptop to play Division2. My laptop has a very good BT network adapter, and I assume the ELITE controller has a decent BT adapter in it. Hardware wise I dont see why the two cant pair. It would also be more practical because i wouldn't have a long dongle pertruding on the side of my laptop that can potentially be bent or broken. I know this adapter isnt expensive especially compared to my other gear. However it's a matter of principle. Come on Microsoft..unlock the software so we can sync YOUR console controller to YOUR Operating System without a dongle. Is that to much to ask for? :-/

    Worked... while it lasted

    The adapter did exactly what it said it would do that was until last week when it stopped working all together, thought it might have been my computer so I had tried my laptop still no light and did not show up in device manager. The dongle no longer turns on and trying to find support or warranty information through microsoft's website on troubleshooting this dongle just lead to finding out I needed to contact support for a replacement but instead of a that sending you to support the link sends you to the webpage to buy the product and support from that sends you right back to the troubleshooting page. In other words the product was great while it lasted but I just wish it lasted longer than a few months especially when this dongle is needed to connect their 150 dollar controller to my pc but that's a complaint for another product.

    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.

    Much better than the old Win10 adapter

    I was using the old big and blocky wireless adapter for an Xbox One controller for my PC but it always had problems with unreliability and I'd eventually have to just connect it with a cable. THIS adapter has been rock solid and dependable. I just turn on my controller, it connects and it works regardless of what's going on on my computer. I can connect it in the middle of playing, before starting the game, in Steam Big Screen Mode or launching the game outside steam from the computer. It has worked in every scenario. Make sure to buy this updated adapter and NOT the bigger blocky one.

    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

    Used for connecting Xbox One controller to comp

    Bought one of the new Xbox One controllers that used bluetooth to connect to my computer. Found out later that my comp's built-in bluetooth didn't work too well with the controller (delayed response, short range, and massive frame drops). Same thing when I bought a bluetooth dongle. Whether it was the computer's fault or Xbox's fault; who knows. This adapter helped me connect to my comp with no issues. Also came with a usb extender cable that brought it close to myself as well. Sucks that I just didnt buy this and the controller as a bundle earlier.

    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

    Pros: - Pairs with any existing Xbox One controller. - Runs with multiple adapters in the same room with no connection issues. - Easy to set up - plug & play. Cons: - A bit pricey since it's only replacing the use of a micro USB cable. Overall: You're basically paying for the ability to use your wireless controller as it was intended to be used. If you can't stand being tethered to your machine, then this addition is a nice way to get around that.

    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!

    I purchased this because I was having issues with my previous Xbox for windows adapter and wanted the new one. I have to say, it is much better, from my experience, as compared to the older one. It is considerably smaller than the original and seems to connect faster and stay connected. I would highly recommend the Xbox adapter for windows 10.

    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!

    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.

    Exactly what you need to use a wireless controller

    It's honestly a great item to have and probably the only one I know of that can connect my wireless Xbox controller to my PC, the bluetooth software apparently doesn't work everytime but with this bad boy it works just fine, just pro tip, make sure you unplug your Xbox before you try to sync it up or you'll just keep turning your Xbox on.

    Just build a high end gaming PC piece by piece and even went as far as grabbing a Razer Huntsman Elite keyboard just to put the cherry on top. I love playing with mouse and keyboard but sometimes I just wanna kick back and play with my XB1X controller and this let's me do just that. No issues at all and simple to set up.

    A necessity if you have a controller

    Looking to play on your PC with an Xbox controller? Then you'll need this to be able to connect it to the PC. Helps for many games where a keyboard and mouse simply feel weird to use. There doesn't seem to be an latency and you wouldn't know the difference between this and a wired controller. Recommended.

    I purchased an Xbox One Elite controller, but I didn't realize I needed a wireless adapter for my PC. The newer Xbox One wireless controllers have Bluetooth build in and don't require the adapter, but the Elite doesn't use Bluetooth. It works perfectly and haven't had issues so far.

    I've been playing wired with my 200 and something dollar Xbox controller elite for almost a year because the previous wireless adapter did not work with Windows 10 and they finally released a new one that works and there's no lag no interruption no nothing so far and I've had it for a little bit.

    unpacked the device and plugged it in to my powered hub. installed with the windows 10 drivers. works with the Xbox app on windows sound and chat with the Xbox one warless controller .. paying in some pc games is dependent on the game supporting it. same with the chat and other features

    If you already have a Bluetooth/wireless remote, then this isn’t necessary, or at the very least it’s redundant. But to use to convert to a wireless adapter between my Xbox and my Windows laptop? It does what it claims to do, and thus far flawlessly. No complaints.
