    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.

    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.

    Works and doesn't work, lags and cuts out and turns off for no reason. Yes I have updated, downloaded apps and new patches nothing fixed it. Bought 2 different adapters to prove my point and same thing. Games didn't work with. -Friday the 13th -Far Cry 5 Sorry guys don't buy this unless you want to deal with crap.

    Not good for a beginner pc user

    Using this controller entails a lot of backdoor workarounds getting the wireless adapter to be recognized properly. Once you get past that, it's great. But for a casual pc user/gamer, it may be more work that what worth.

    I have a Raspberry Pie system that I use a Xbox wired controller for. I was hoping to be able to use this wireless one but it would not work with it. Now I am still limited to the length of my wired controller.

    Kind of hard to sync controllers by pushing the button on usb but it works so I’m not complaining. Controller that came with “open-box” kind of sucks but what can you expect from open box.

    I hardly use any xbox controllers, but it is comfortable to use and its very easy to connect to my p.c. Still not used to using an xbox controller but its not a biggie to adjust.

    This is the most comfortable controller I have used. Wireless is always a plus. Works out of the box with windows, no setup headaches. Excellent controller all around. Would recommend.

    Great controller, but my reason for removing a star is if you break the controller you have to by the whole thing again even if you have the adapter already

    I brought this because I wanted to play games such as Fighting Games where there are a lot of buttons. I am not good with all the keys to press on the keyboard. This has helped a lot.

    I was originally going to buy the wireless adaptor but I bought this instead and I’m glad I did. The adaptor is much smaller than the original and it works very well

    This is a good combo works great for my PC but I have a problem with this being so pricey. You can buy the controller and USB separate and save about 20 bucks.
