Summary: Other reviews I've read have noted that it sometimes loses connection with the receiver and hiccups for a moment until it reconnects. I've found this to be true as well, but it's placement issue. I have the receiver plugged into the front panel of my tower, and if I lean forward at my desk (so the controller is OVER the tower, in front of the receiver) I sometimes lose connection. This hiccup is easily rectified with the USB extension cable provided.
Summary: First off I just want to say that the controller itself is awesome, but....... Installation is a nightmare if you have windows 7 x64 edition. You cannot install this device using anything Logitech recommends. It simply does not work. There is a workaround that only takes a minute but it takes a little computer knowhow in order to do it. If you do this workaround this controller is so much better than the wireless Xbox controller.
Nice wireless controller that's compatible with many devices

Summary: I have several devices capable of working with wireless USB controllers and wanted to pick one up. After doing a lot of research, I settled on the F710. I picked this controller because it has great compatibility with the OUYA as well as computers and a few other devices and the Logitech button the device perfectly mimics the OUYA button on the OUYA controller. First off, this is a solidly built controller.
Summary: I used this on Windows 8.1 and at first I could not get the controller to connect at all so I contacted Logitech Support and they told me to download an Xbox 360 driver, which it's very odd and annoying that Logitech has not been able to develop their own drivers for windows and are instead relying on Xbox drivers.
Summary: Tried to get this to work with Windows 8.1 for about an hour, Logitech support was useless in getting this resolved. Ended up installing Wireless drivers for the Xbox 360 controller and using those instead.
Summary: Pretty much the perfect combo between a PS3 and an Xbox 360 controller! The layout is basically that of the PS3's, and the overall feel is very close to the 360's, but the only gripe I have with this are the triggers. They're kinda uncomfortable and awkwardly shaped, and on top of that they're very springy so it can get a little awkward to use in say, a racing game, where you have to hold down the trigger for a while, but you definitely get used to it.
