Great kit, bad fuse on the chip

Summary: As a controller goes, you can't go wrong. This is the second receiver/controller I have bought. THE RECEIVER THOUGH, IS CRAP. It works. And may work for a long time. Mine lasted about a year then it just stopped working. So I, being the tech nerd I am, opened it up and poked around with my tools.
Summary: Don't know if it's a aberration, since it's the only MS controller I've owned for the PC, but none of my half dozen, or more, Xbox controllers for the consoles have ever had this problem. It worked flawlessly for a few months, and then got flaky.
Pros: Works most of the time.
Cons: Often disconnects while playing. Sometimes so often that I have to watch the controller for the lights, to make sure it's still powered on. Not reliable for fast paced games, for which an interruption like control loss, may result in the game being unplayable.
Summary: The microsoft controller is one of the best in the Business, just buy the damm thing for your computer and get it over with, there is no other controler that works as well. Logitech, or radio shack, or gamepads. Owned them all and this is hands down the best kind of controller available.
Summary: first off let me start by saying that the product is awsome. i am happy with the purchase that was made.i an not happy with the quality of the product. the adapter work with out flaw. as soon as i pluged it in it synced right up to the controller and was able to play.
Summary: This controller is of course known for its lackluster DPad. Of course, its DPad is pretty lousy. And if you are a developer, you possibly also know that its dead zones and centering are pretty lousy too.
Summary: This controller is exactly the as the 360 console controller. It is basically perfect for playing any controller-enabled games. However, the receiver is too TOO bloody BIG!!! If it is the size of a USB thumb drive, it would have been perfect and I would give 5 out of 5.
Pros: Exactly the same as XBox360 controller, Good quality and comfortable
Got on sale for 24.00, plays like I still paid too much!

Summary: If this was something I could fix by opening the little bugger up or forcing through some secondary drivers that overwrite the ones it comes with, would completely solve problem.
Pros: Great wireless controller. Battery life gauge when you press 'X' button is nice. Familiar controller layout that you can adapt to!
Cons: Customization options/configurations absent! My controller has problems going to zero when sticks are not moved. Camera in games or even moving will sometimes continue in a direction when I leave off the sticks! It's negotiable, just infuriating. All product needs in order to be perfect is config...
Pros: Microsoft controllers are great to use for games.
Cons: This is my second problem I've had with these controllers in one week. My wired one's cable just decided to somehow become lose and would lose connection from the PC. And I take REAL good care of my things. So I decided I would try a wireless one. Well guess what? This one's stick doesn't center ...
