    Good for about a month. Then stopped working

    Bought in mid October. For about a month, this actually played very well for a cheap controller. Then about a month after purchase, the left trigger stopped working properly, responding like I was pushing the right trigger instead. I put in a ticket with PowerA on their website, because they claim to offer a 1 year warranty. That's one of the things that made me feel comfortable buying a cheap $30 controller in the first place. Now it's been 10 days with zero response from PowerA. Guess it's time to return to Best Buy. I won't be buying any more PowerA products. Poor build quality and poor customer support do not add up to a brand worth buying.

    This controller is not for me. I purchased it for my fiancé while it was on sale seeing he has to switch through battery’s so much on his wireless and he hated it. I myself gave the controller a try and also hated it. Upon disliking this controller I was unable to return it because I purchased it during a promotional period and therefore I’m now stuck with it because Best Buy won’t let you return crap that you think you will like during a promotion. Good luck

    I recommend going with the PDP brand XboxOne Controllers. I've had one too many issues with the PowerA XboxOne Controllers, from buttons jamming or sticking, right and left trigger buttons popping out to eventual connection issues. Usually around 5 to 6 months of use the controller would begin to disconnect and reconnect with the slightest movement of the controller.

    This controller is a major pain, first issue is when you are talking with people on xbox live, they hear a buzzing in your mic because it is connected to your xbox. Also, buttons were activated without me pressing them at some points. worst controller, it could barely last me a month without giving me issues. might as well just get the wireless controller or a used one

    I know these are inexpensive controllers but I went through 3 of these in 8 months. Bumpers and triggers stopped working properly and the joystick would get stuck constantly from the moment we opened it.

    Very disappointed in this controller. During my first use after purchasing this, the right trigger button began failing. Good thing I purchased the protection plan...

    Only lasted 6 months then broke. Junk. Cord broke and costs more than controller to fix. Be sure to buy the warranty when you buy this one.

    This item had to be returned. It was very faulty. The geek squad informed us that this item has been reported several times for not functioning properly.
