Summary: This controller is a disgrace. I bought mine only a month ago to use to test the game I'm developing, and after only mild, typical gaming, it's warn out like a 5 year old controller that's seen countless long, intense gaming sprees.
Many of the controllers fight to be player 1 so you can't use 2 of them until you find a controller that doesn't have this bug.

Summary: I live in a high rise in a big city and all the WiFi interference from 1000's of WiFi routers causes the wireless XBox 360 controllers to have varying degrees of lag so they are not an option (not Microsoft's fault). I have a couple for use when using Netflix etc.
Summary: This is a controller for a mediocre console. I don't dislike the xbox in particular, all consoles are inferior to pc. That said, this controller was pretty damn good at being a controller, before it broke. It's solid to the point I feel I could use it as a nun chuck, or geeky flail.
Summary: I bought this controller knowing that it's probably the best game pad to use with a PC, and for the quality of the product. I have multiple wireless versions that still function perfectly that came with my first gen Xbox 360.
It still functions fine, but that's still a little ridiculous that something ...

Summary: I've used it for a few hours and the left analog already squeaks if I move it to the top left corner. It still functions fine, but that's still a little ridiculous that something like that happened so quickly.
Summary: These are so cheap, yet they work out of the box, no messing about, load the CD plug and play. Yes you can buy cheaper, but the one I had was a pain to set up, don't work as well, where this isn't.
Summary: Best PC controllers for your money. Wired XBox One controllers for PC are supposedly better, but Wireless XBox One Controllers for PC aren't an option (yet). They cost more, too. The included calibration software is useful.
I'd recommend if especially if you're playing games that work much ...

Summary: It's a classic, high quality controller. Many PC games do support the use of controllers. Even for the ones that don't, you can use software to make the game compatible with your controller. I've had no problems with the inputs of this controller at all, and I've had it for 9 months now.
Summary: Now I know there's always a chance to get two in a row of a controller with the same problem, but I don't want to bother with a third replacement order. The issue with the couple I got was that the up and right directional buttons on the D-pad were spongy and unresponsive, in contrast to the down...
Summary: Made by Microsoft, for Microsoft. I bought it to play Steam games on my PC (the ones that don't play that great with mouse + keyboard that is), and it's literally plug and play. There is software that comes with it, but Windows Update will install your drivers for you anyway, so it's not even needed...
