    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.

    Great Gift for PC Gamers

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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 bundle comes with the PC adapter to do wireless controller mode with full audio. This bundle was cheaper than just buying a controller separately, so the only downside is you can only buy the black style.

    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.

    Picked up this remote as a secondary one for my one s and love the feel and weight on it. Haven't tried the adapter on a PC but I'm sure it'll work without skipping a beat. So far a great pick up.

    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.
