Summary: Never unplug the adapter from your PC. I unplugged mine one day (the first time I ever unplugged it in about a year) to charge my cell phone (which I usually do in a wall outlet), afterward I plugged it back in and no light. The thing is totally dead after unplugging it once.
Summary: I am surprised at the low quality of this controller. I have many Microsoft products that are very rugged and have stood the test of time. I even, to the shock and amazement of my gaming friends, still have an original pre-ordered XBox 360.

Summary: I bought this product from amazon and it's the same controller that comes with the XBOX 360 with the addition of a wireless transmitter/receiver that plugs into a USB port. But here's the problem: I can't get it to work with various games on my PC. It works completely fine with the Orange Box on PC.
Controller Xbox su PC ?? Meglio lasciar perdere....

Summary: Il Microsoft Xbox 360 Wireless Controller per Windows, altro non è che un pad wireless per l'Xbox 360, con allegato un adattatore USB-Wireless che promette di gestire tutte le periferiche (passate e future) per xbox da PC con s.o. vista o xp.
Pros: condividere le periferiche fra PC e Consolle
Cons: uso su PC limitato alle minime funzioni base
