    Solved my problem

    While waiting for Wreckfest to come out for the PS4, I couldn't wait forever and downloaded the PC game from Steam. So far, so good. Well, only able to control my car with arrow keys, the fun was lacking. I read that an X-box controller should work with a PC game with a Windows computer. Even Windows 7 like my ancient computer has. So off to Best Buy where I know there are gaming geeks who know their, uh, stuff. I told the first guy I found in the gaming section what my plight was. Oh yeah, here, this is the one for you. But I have Windows 7 and there's a reference to Windows 10 on the box. No worries, he says. This should be "Plug & Play". Ok, I grab the box (and tell him if it doesn't work I'll be back - looking for HIM). I opted for the red controller - because it looks cool. I get it home and find the controller to be fairly hefty. Not as hefty as my PS4 controller, but hefty nonetheless. The cord is thick and heavy. I'm thinking this will last forever, at least in MY house where no little kids are messing with my stuff. I plug it in and hear the familiar 'dim dum' that says the computer knows I plugged something in. BUT, it doesn't know what it is and it can't find any drivers for it. Of course, this is ancient Windows 7. So the prompt comes up saying Windows will search the web for the driver. But the omniscient Microsoft searcher finds nothing. What to do, what to do. I've got Wreckfest booted up and it has no clue the controller is there either. I went to the PDP website where I found the solution. There was a choice of two drivers to download. One for 64 bit, the other for 32 bit. I opted for the former. My lousy web access had me sitting for quite a while, but it turned out to be worth it. I loaded the driver software and VIOLA! It works, and works great. It scared me at first when I got the driver loaded because the controller started vibrating violently on my desk! This, after another Microsoft prompt saying there were no drivers available for this. Right . . . I think Wreckfest and I are going to have a long relationship.

    Why say windows when you mean windows 10!?!?

    Bought this controller at bestbuy for a good deal to play skyrim and such. Looked great and felt great but when I put the USB cable into my computer, my computer said there were no drivers available for it. Checked out why that would be by going to the app suggested and gosh darn it if it didn't say for windows 10! Why would the silly stupid box say for xbox one and windows implying that it's for all windows platforms (at least 7 & up) when it's just for 10. However, when I searched further into the net it says it's supposedly suppose to work with windows 7. But with Microsoft clearly trying to force people into getting windows 10 they got rid of the necessary drivers for windows 7. Makes me dislike xbox and microsoft in general. Will be returning the stupid controller at my earliest convenience!

    The controller looks great, feels great, software was awesome, extra length in the wire, and more. The only issue I had was that the controller's B button started sticking after 13 days of owning it. I play a lot of Rocket League so I use that button often. Sure, I could've mapped the B button to one of the paddles or possibly another button. It takes time for me to be able to change muscle memory up all of a sudden. It could've just been my controller, but I still encourage you to purchase this one to give it a shot. Save yourself the trouble and buy the Geek Squad Protection to make your life hassle free in advance. Good luck with your purchase.

    More for kids

    Bought 2 of these controllers from Best Buy and tested them out. The first day it worked fine until I started playing games that constantly require you to push buttons ex. Dragon Ball Fighterz, Call of Duty, Marvel Vs Capcom Infinite. After only a couple of days the (x) button started to stick. I thought it would only be a one time thing but it did it continuously to the point where I had to stop playing and swap to my old controller. I returned both after only several days of use and paid the extra money and bought an official Microsoft Xbox one controller. It’s a nice looking controller but I wouldn’t take a chance on it if you’re a hardcore gamer. This would be great for kids who don’t show as much care in their things.

    (Writing for playing with PC ) I have played this controller with both editions of Windows 7 Pro and 10 Pro. All have played very well, been responsive with crisp buttons and quick actions. It has an extra feature for combining multiple buttons in a specially designed plate on the bottom of the controller, and performs very well. I was having some problems with the headphone jack, as it would constantly rumble whenever I inserted my headphones. Hopefully, I can find a reason for this soon. It doesn't bother me, as I do not use it much. All in all, a well crafted controller that gets the job done.

    Pros: -Cheaper -Micro USB -The cable that comes with it fits securely into the outer part of the slot. -Smaller then traditional XBOX controllers -No batteries -Removeable back triggers Cons: -Sticky Buttons -Deadzones -When back triggers are removed it doesn't have a cover plate -Back triggers don't act as separate buttons for games only remaps existing buttons. Overall it's a nice controller but with the sticky buttons and inability to remap triggers they are pointless. But it is half the price of the original.

    Software needed to map the buttons didn't work.

    Overall the initial feel of the controller was good but after trying again and again to get the software to recognize the controller, it just wouldn't. I was unable to remap the rear paddles at all. The extra software is required to remap the buttons otherwise you are stuck with whatever the default is. Also just as a note. The paddles are considered duplicates of face buttons and not their own buttons so you can not use the buttons as macros or button combinations.

    The Xbox one Windows Pdp controller is excellent for PC gaming. I was looking for a controller that I could connect to my PC and play games with it and I found it. I use it for all my PC games that support the controller. It feels exactly like the authentic Xbox One controller. I can barely tell the difference.

    This controller is awesome. It works great and the response time is amazing. I wasn’t such a fan about the wire being able to be unplugged from the base of the controller but it has pretty sturdy support. The reason why I am giving this a four-star is because the back panel for the buttons continuously keep popping off but besides that it is a great controller for the price.

    Feels good, RB and LB are kind of tough to push compared to an actual Microsoft controller but it didn’t really make a difference. This is one long cord folks so no need to worry about the length. The paddles underneath have good response and sit in perfect spots for your fingers. As for durability, I have just had this controller for about 2 months, don’t really use it much

    The controller itself looks and feels great with a ribbed plastic grip,reflective camo and 2 sleek programmable bumpers under the controller it makes any game fun and easier to play. Only downside I have found with the controller is when you plug in a headset you will emit a high pitched buzz noise to anyone in your chat only sometimes.

    Picked this up last week and gotta say I love it! Was originally going to purchase an Xbox Elite controller, but this is 1/5th the cost. I've used the Nacon Revolution Pro2 and Razer Wolverine controllers which both worked great for PC, but this by far has the easiest and customizable app for windows. And did I mention the price! Works like a charm.

    Purchased this wired controller to use with my Xbox One because I was tired of always having to charge the wireless ones. I am satisfied with this controller and I don’t have to worry about charging it or it dying in the middle of a gaming session. The controls on the back are definitely helpful for games like Call of Duty and Fortnite.

    Bought this controller during a sale. Needed one to play games on a Windows 10 desktop. This is a wired controller. The cord is long enough to reach the computer under my desk with room to spare. It might not be quite as nice as the Microsoft version, but at half the price, it is good enough for my needs.

    I specifically bought this for my PC, considering that I play console games normally and just got into PC gaming. This controller is lightweight and with the additions buttons on the bottom provide a great mappable alternative to removing your fingers from the joysticks!

    My kids seem to like this one better than the wireless ones since it doesn’t burn through batteries and it seems to be built better and more durable - just make sure it can reach the Xbox from where they typically sit (e.g. ensure the wire is long enough to reach where they sit while playing)
