  Nice controller, shame about everything else you get!

The controller itself is great, great feel, great design and response but the "wireless" part is a con.

You have to connect a rather large and long receiver that plugs in a USB port to communicate between controller and PC. Thats not wireless to me, seeing as my laptop has infrared, bluetooth and wifi so surely Microsoft could have come up with something better to link the two then this ugly piece of hardware? I have sent this request to Microsoft but doudt I will get a response.

Also the software literally links the two devices thats it, there are no settings or configurations just the games settings!

Pre-ordered two of these items and received them yesterday. Installed without any problems on both of our Windows 7 PCs.

My main concern was that the two devices would conflict with each other (as there is one for each PC in the house), but there was no such trouble - the software installed and picked up the controllers correctly.

Tested the controller with the following games:

Need for Speed Underground
Burnout Paradise
Lego Star Wars: The Complete Trilogy
Fallout 3
Batman: Arkham Asylum

All of the above games picked up the controller automatically and pre-configured the buttons without any trouble.

My only niggle is that I can't find a way to switch off the controller when I'm finished with it (except to leave it to time out after about 5 minutes). But it's no big issue at all.

I'd recommend this controller for anyone looking for a wireless PC controller for gaming - in my opinion, it can't be beaten!
