3 out of 5 eggsHad to manually install drivers

Pros: Works, once you get the drivers installed.

Cons: The disc doesn't install the drivers.

Other Thoughts: I had to google help on how to get this thing working. Basically when you put the CD in and plug the device in, it tells you that it can't install the drivers because they don't exist, or something like that. So then you download the drivers on microsoft's site, and the controller still disagrees that the drivers exist, so you go into device manager and search through a list of available drivers.

Then it works just fine. It even tells you the battery life on your controller. :)

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: CHEAP! Its small,black,and works well.

Cons: Extra disc that I didn't even use

Other Thoughts: Used this for ten hours turned the Xbox controller off and on a couple times put computer too sleep back on no issues whatsoever. Follow the instructions in the reviews. Note:I did download the Microsoft controller driver and installed it before I even had this product. Haven't used but one controller but it makes easy work out of my new found pc gaming. Also helps I got it a day early.Is not a Microsoft product but works just as well.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat deal!

Pros: Works great. I've had no problems.

Cons: Well... I don't know if it's a con or not, but I threw away the disc and followed the instructions found in the comments. I had it working within 5-10 minutes.

Other Thoughts: None.

5 out of 5 eggsStumbled at first

Pros: Does what it's supposed to do, controls identical to Xbox, works "out of the box" once drivers installed properly (no additional config necessary).

Cons: Not a Microsoft product, no REAL driver support, Microsoft drivers don't work without help, controller doesn't connect without added support.

Other Thoughts: So I started playing Skyrim a few weeks back, having already played through the base game on 360 a while back and wanted to play again with some fun mods I'd seen. Being a 360 player, I realized I was having difficulty controlling the game with the keyboard. Looked online and found, as I suspected, you can use a 360 controller on your PC and found this item to assist. Knew it was not Microsoft when I bought it, but figured the Microsoft guide would walk me through it. I was way wrong. I spent the last week or so looking up a way to get my controller to connect (found the proper drivers and install method the first day), but couldn't get my controller to sync up with this unit. Last night I came here, looking to find anything new, and bingo, found the answer.

Copy this into a search window: xbox, 360, wireless, receiver, drivers, selfsimilar

Everything you need is on the first link it shows. Follow it to the letter, and your money won't be wasted. I'm pleased this worked for me, and hardily thank the person below me that found that page!

4 out of 5 eggsDecent

Pros: It works...

Cons: ....when it decides to. Also, you have to reinstall the driver every time you unplug the darn thing. Still, its the best one thats out there right now.

Just remember kids: This ISNT a Microsoft product. Its a Chinese knockoff that happens to work most of the time.

4 out of 5 eggsKnockoff but Works

Pros: Once it is up and running, it works perfectly. I've been playing AV4 BF with this receiver and my Xox 360 controller in Win7x64, no problems. Getting it working is another story however, especially if you run a 64 bit OS.

Cons: Please understand this is not a genuine Microsoft product, even though the title says 'for Microsoft Xbox 360.' But afaik M$ does not offer this product, so its no big woop. However, it does not come with 64 bit device drivers and the instructions are pretty awefull. -1 egg

Other Thoughts: This will work with WIN7 64bit, you just need the right drivers. Well, you need two drivers: the drivers for the controller (xbox 360 controller in my case) which you can get from the manufacturer (Miscrosoft in my case) but you also need the device drivers for the knockoff wireless receiver (64 bit drivers in my case, which are not supplied.) You do NOT need AGPtek-specific drivers, which is good because they do not supply 64 bit drivers. Good luck searching for them, I tried to post a URL and I tried to explain how I found them, but New Egg policy apparently prohibits customers from helping each other, so if you need 64 bit drivers, good luck finding them!

4 out of 5 eggsMade in China But Works

Pros: Does what it is supposed to do. After some tinkering and disappointment I was able to get this to wirk with 64 bit drivers on Win 7. If this is your problem, see the section Other Thoughts. Been playing AC4 BF with it all day!

Cons: Does not come with 64 bit drivers OR the drivers required for the XBox 360 controller. -1 Egg
Not a genuine M$ product (this is a knockoff), but I can't take off an egg for that since M$ no longer offers their wireless gaming receiver afaik.
I knew there would be an issue with 64 bit drivers so I did my research before I bought this to make sure I could find them.

Other Thoughts: If you need help installing/finding drivers, google the following words together: xbox, 360, wireless, receiver, drivers, selfsimilar. The last word is the name of the site which houses a guide which worked for me. The guide has links to M$'s latest XBox 360 controller drivers as well as a link for 64bit device drivers for the receiver. I tried posting the actual link but New Egg policy won't allow it. Hope this helps others!

5 out of 5 eggsNo problems

Pros: Works on both Mac and PC. You'll have to do some searching to figure it out.

Cons: I have to find the driver every so often. However, after you do it once, it's pretty straightforward.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks flawlessly.

Pros: This product is built well and works great.

Cons: You have to manually load drivers through the device manager. It's not a big enough deal to deduct points.
