    I saw this controller and had been wanted to pick one up for my PC for a while, so at 20 bucks I decided to buy it. At first, the controller feels pretty good in your hand and everything feels natural. When plugging in the wire to the top of the controller, it was a little bit of a pain, but not that big of a deal. Then the issues started to arise. When I plugged the controller into my computer it would not work. I checked the drivers and even used other drivers for xbox controllers with no luck. After multiple different attempts at troubleshooting I plugged the controller into another USB port and then it decided to work. Initially I thought I had a bad USB port, but it worked just fine for everything else I had plugged into my computer. It turns out this controller will not work on a USB 3 slot, it has to be a USB 2 slot. So don't make the same mistake that I did and plug it into a USB 3. Otherwise, now the controller works ok and without issue.

    Cheap and works, but doesn't seem durable

    I bought this one in store at the end of March at $19.99 on sale. Today, after one and a half months, the left stick starts to lose sensitivity. My character seems to "hesitate" while I simply push the stick to order him forward. I don't consider myself to be a heavy user, playing around 10 hours a week. I guess that's what you'd expect from a cheap controller. Still, the product is good enough on all other regards, I think it feels good and it's compatible with win10.

    If you are able to catch this on sale then it's worth it, but don't expect it to last very long with much more than casual use. My kid goes through one of these every 4-6 months playing Fortnite, while an actual xbox controller lasts about a year or so under the same use. Again, it's a decent controller for the price and a great spare controller or controller for younger kids.

    OK for casual. Doesn't move as smooth as original

    Really wanted to like this controller so I could buy more but... it doesn't feel like an OEM controller. It's probably OK for a casual user but the joysticks don't feel smooth when aiming and moving like an original controller does.

    Overall a solid feeling controller. Especially for the price, my issue is that the trigger for some reason sticks. I Bel eve that its due to exess plastic on the sides of the trigger.

    The kids are hard on Xbox controllers. These were a decent wired replacement. The right bumper sticks intermittently but it's not a huge deal.

    Trying to find an economic controller for my pie set up. I ended up having to get a wireless controller and it works!

    This is my fourth purchase of the remote and I'm sure it won't last like the others. It gets the job done for the most part.

    There are a couple of buttons where you hold the controller that are right where you grip and keep getting selected.

    The actual color does not match the online description. It looks more tan on the back than gold.

    Thought you could program a series of inputs into the extra buttons. Not the case. Returned.
