Summary: No real problems with the controller as it works great with everything, especially steam games. However, one thing to note is the controllers lack of an actual on/off switch. The controller automatically turns off after several minutes of idleness but it would be much better if you could control it yourself
This is for the Amazon Fire TV (FTV) owners out there (flashing light woes)

Summary: I got this for two reasons, the HTPC and the Amazon Fire TV box I just purchased. After two days, here are the pros and cons: Pros: 1. Amazing distance. 2. Worked out of the box. (seriously, super easy) 3. Works with most apps. Cons: 1. The Xbox light flashes constantly! Seriously, that light is annoying in dimly lit rooms. I believe it's waiting for a "callback," of sorts, so that it knows what "player number" it's supposed to be.
Summary: Not much else to say. I love playing games on my pc with the controller. Works well until the receiver gives up the ghost. Still I did get quite a few years out of the origial. Highly recommended.
Pros: Allows me to use Xbox 360 wireless controller on my pc.
Cons: My origial one stopped working. This is my second
Summary: I'm familiar with this controller - I already have two of them for use with an Xbox 360. It's a great controller, durable, comfortable, the perfect weight and well-balanced. It's built well, including labels cast into the buttons so they can never wear off. What this package really adds is the USB wireless controller for use with a PC. The controller is a standard Xbox 360 controller.
Summary: I love using this for racing games, 3rd person action games, and flight games that support a gamepad but not a true joystick. Plus I can join in on my son's Xbox 360 with my own controller. The downside is the receiver. The one that came with it just quit one day - no LED, and not recognized at all by the computer - I might as well have been just plugging in a USB extension cord.
Summary: I bought this controller to play some games on my PC without using my keyboard. It worked awesome, fast installation, fast recognition on the games (it was detected on Steam really good), my games actually started showing the XBOX controllers without me doing anything more than just connecting it. The 4 stars review is because: 1. I think it should use a customized rechargeable battery instead of AA ones. 2. It doesn't have a turn off button...
