Decent Controller, don't recommend for users with a laptop

Summary: Overall decent controller, but I don't recommend this if you plan on using it with a laptop. First the good: Controls are responsive Buttons and analog sticks have a good feel Good vibration I've owned this a little over a year and haven't had any real functionality problems (but I haven't used it a lot) Lots of customization options The bad: It doesn't work with the Logitech Unifying receiver. This was a big disappointment.
Summary: All of the button presses feel durable, sturdy, and clean. The analog sticks feel like they have just the right amount of resistance and I've had no issues with smoothness of movement. Vibration works great. Happy with my purchase a year and a half later. Note: You'll need the extension if you want to play anywhere outside of a few feet of your USB plug, but the range with the included extension is very comfortable from my couch, about eight feet away.
Good controller, but problems with wireless reception

Summary: The controller itself is great. The design is comfortable on the hands, and quality feels on par with an Xbox 360 controller. The fact that it is easily switchable between Xinput and direct input is a huge plus as well. Unfortunately, the controller is marred by a simple flaw- The wireless connection tends to cut out for a second or two at a time every now and then. The controller just stops sending signal altogether and then it comes back in.
Summary: one of the most bad software I have ever seen. it's very complicated to install this device. I am one of many who failed that install it. just a crap software. I throw this scrap in the garbage.I just lost my money for a scrap device. To replace this device, i bought last week a Razer sabertooth. real cake to install. it's a wonder to have. If you want to have a headache during installation, buy a gamepad Logitech.
Excerpt: It's not your every day controller. I haven't yet to experience any lag between my movement and the movement in the game, although there was a time where I tried to type with the D pad. I hit the left button and it took a couple of times before It would move on the screen but I might not have pressed it hard enough I don't know, being that I have small hands it's pretty hard for me to get a good grip on the controller and to press the right and left bumper and trigger...
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
14 August 2014
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.
