    Great controller for Steam games

    Originally had a wired XBox 360 controller that worked really well, but the cable was a pain to deal with when I wasn't using it. Decided to pick up a wireless XBox controller based on how simple it was to set up and use the wired one. This product comes with a controller and a usb dongle to allow for connecting to a PC. Installation was super easy, just plug in the dongle and hold down the connection button until they were linked - no other set up necessary. I was able to boot up Dead Cells, Salt and Sanctuary, Hollow Knight, and Monster Hunter World and use the controller without any issues. The controller itself feels well built (already dropped it a few times) and is light but not flimsy. Controls are responsive and there doesn't seem to be a lot of input lag. If you play a lot of platformers or console ports, I would definitely suggest getting this controller.

    I purchased this controller so I could use it for my gaming p.c. I have a top of the line keyboard; however, I like to utilize this xbox one controller for certain games. It connects very fast and very easily to a windows p.c. No real installation is really required. Just connect the provided USB into one of your USB ports and turn on the controller. After you insert the batteries. Switching between mouse and controller is very simple. They both function while being on. Control is smooth and shows no latency between the p.c and controller. Very happy with this purchase. I also used the stores pick up service for this. I work for a pick up service for another store, I was very satisfied with best buy pick up service. Very fast and efficient. My order was ready within an hour.

    Its an xbox controller with a reciever

    Its an xbox controller + the wireless adapter for a windows PC. drivers can be a little fiddly because they use the "it should work straight away" policy instead of the "here are the drivers" policy. I know that for me it did not work straight away so i had to go into device manager, delete it, and try again a couple of times. Pairing process is indicative of Bluetooth technology, so it would be nice if the dongle could work as a general Bluetooth receiver, but it only connects to the controller. Recommended for a friend because while it is still expensive, its cheaper than buying the controller and the adapter separately or at least was when I got it.

    Amazing controller, when plugged in

    *Please note that this was used on PC only, not XBox* This controller is really quite confortable and responsive. I played about 30 hours with it and find it way more comfortable than any other out there. My issue with the controller is that the wireless connection has a lot of loopholes to go through, and mine did not work at all. Even so, i would buy this again because the layout is perfect.

    Prbly Best Pc Controller Available

    The xbox one controller is pretty much just an updated x360 controller. All the same functionality updated looks while retaining most of the old feel. I say most of the old feel as the new controller is just a little bit different but not to a degree that its unfamiliar in your hands. If you ever games with the original x360 controller then getting this to update your PC experience will feel right at home.

    Works Fine, but Battery Life Sucks!

    The controller works as it should, but the battery life really sucks! I play maybe 3 hours a day, and I have to replace the batteries every week and a half or so. The controller I had before, I only had to replace the batteries every 2-3 months! It does the same functions, and I thought that things like this got improved over time, not got really, really worse. If I could use any other kind of controller for my game, I would return this.

    Perfect controller for windows 10

    I needed a controller that I could use on my computer. I discovered that Microsoft made a windows 10 version of the Xbox controller. It came with the wireless adapter, cable extender, and of course the controller. Set up was plug and play. It works great! Most of my steam library has controller support so it’s just like playing on an Xbox.

    This is a great gift to give your gamer boyfriend. A present to switch things up without breaking the bank. He's mostly a PC gamer, but has played with every console that ever came out so this was a great way to combine the two worlds. The item itself is pretty standard, sleek, comfortable in the hand. No problems with the adapter.

    The reason I bought this remote was because my kids kept on messing up the ones with the wires because when playing they would get so into the game and would pull on it by jumping up and down. Now with the wireless they dnt have to worry about that any more, crossing my fingers so I dnt have to replace anytime soon

    Very comfortable, nice grip. All button at a perfect reach, great button clicking. This is my favorite controller for pretty every game style except for fighting games (DS4 is superior for that). In case someone's wondering it came with the latest version of the usb dongle(the smaller one).

    I use controllers for PC fighting games. This works excellent for my PC, I use it for Street Fighter, Mortal Kombat and The Division. Distance reach is far to. Also, this version mad en the adapter smaller so it takes up less room on your USB drivers area for your PC

    Picked this up after my last Xbox One PC controller died on me. The staff was very knowledgeable about the product and helped me picked up a service plan so I can replace it if it breaks on me. Something that I should've gotten for the first controller.

    Bought one for my wife's new computer to play games and bought a second one so that she would have 2 controllers (and I could get the smaller usb stick for my controllers). Very happy with the purchase as it was around the same price as a normal xbox controller.

    Easy installation, just plug in the usb and windows automatically downloads drivers so it is ready to use. Virtually no input lag when a action is inputted. My only complaint is sometimes the rumble feature goes in and out while playing a game.

    This controller is great for PC gaming, once you set it up, you just sync it after plugging in the USB port, and most games even if already being played will recognize the controller and automatically begin to use it. I love to play my XBOX anywhere titles on my PC using this.

    Same maker same issues just new feel. The slightly newer grips that have a rubber feel to the palm of your hands that are nice over the plastic feel but the controller still has the same problems of bumpers breaking and the toggle sticks caving in.

    It's nice to be able to use an Xbox One wireless controller on PC. It makes playing games a lot easier. The only issue I have is that I have moments when the controller doesn't sync up. But pulling out the USB and reinstalling it seems to fix it.

    This is an awesome pc controller. I just wish that it would recharge. That is the only thing that I don't like about it. I've had it for over 2 months and haven't had to change the batteries yet so I can't complain. :-)
