Works really well for my steam games. Battery is ...
25 January 2015
Summary: Works really well for my steam games. Battery is lasting a really long time considering how much I've used it. I actually meant to get a corded version and didn't notice that this word wireless. It works really well but every once in a while the wireless seems unresponsive, so if you're using it for more serious gaming, you might want a wired version.
Great Controller for Steam (once installed - set up is 102 level)

Summary: works great for steam. it took me a little to figure out that I need none of the logitech software, and I needed to install Xbox drivers from Microsoft. I had to do some googling and watch some youtube videos, and since my memory is fuzzy, so will you; I hope this points you in the right direction.
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.
Excerpt: I used to game on PS2, then switched to PC gaming. A lot of games (racing in particular) are very hard to play on keyboards, and this controller brought back my instincts. The familiar Playstation layout adds a few extra buttons in the center for Steam overlay, vibration, and sport mode (switches analog stick and D-pad). The buttons are in the A-B-X-Y config from the Xbox controller, but still have familiar functions.
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.
great joystick/gamepad but what is really missing is UNIreceiver

Summary: great joystick/gamepad but what is really missing is UNIreceiver. I serious wished that the designers had through adding an unireceiver support even if they didn't provide one with the unit. Also the original one I brought here developed an issue the 'LB' button and when I contacted the logitech service, it was prompt and easy to get replacement under warranty (they send me a new gampad with shipping included).
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...
