As my original white wireless controller had been keeping me going for just over 3 years, it was a bit worse for wear. The main problem was that the sticks would not re-centre, they would just get stuck in their last position. The rechargeable batteries I had been using were also dying so I found that a wired controller would be ideal for my needs.

This controller was a great deal, just £17.99 at the time of my purchase, which would be cheaper than me having to buy a new wireless and batteries or a Play & Charge Kit. With a 2.7m cable, it it more than enough for how far I am going to need. It also comes with a break off point that stops you from pulling the Xbox or PC off the surface it is put on. It uses a standard USB connection.

It features the new shiny Xbox Guide button, and the glossy black panel where the headset connects. However, it still features the standard D-pad, not the twisting one you get with new consoles, but as I have gotten used to how the old one works, it isn't really a problem for me.

An interesting feature that I noticed was that Microsoft have used 6 normal cross-headed screws to hold this controller together, rather than the fiddly Torx screws on my old one. This means that it should be much easier to take apart for cleaning or respraying with a new colour, but I have not tried this yet, so I can't comment on the success of doing this.

In conclusion, a great product that feels well built, solid and does its job well.

UPDATE:
As of 15/06/12 it still works fine, with all games like Gears 3, MW2, Halo Reach, Forza 3, Fallout 3, Geometry Wars 2, Trials Evolution, Assassin's Creed franchise etc. Have also been using it a bit on PC with the Arkham series of Batman games and also with Dirt 3.

I bought this because I am a games developer (that and the PC version of Bully really felt like it was designed for a controller) and it is one of three joy-pads I own. Right now, it is my favourite joy-pad. Unsurprisingly, it works under Windows. Actually, I'll admit that it was a tiny bit relieving that it works under XP and not just Vista / 7, but I was pleasantly surprised to find that it also works under Ubuntu...

If you have ever owned an Xbox 360 or even played on one, you know this is a comfortable pad to play with. It is just the right shape and size that I can play it with my man-sized hands, but my daughter can also get to grips with it in her tiny hands too. I have no doubt that Microsoft threw millions of dollars at making this the perfect shape and it paid off.

As a developer though, there are one of two little things that are a tad annoying. Firstly, it seems to have no dead zones; play a game that was not developed with it in mind and the analogue sticks are always registering a tiny pull in one direction or another. The second issue is that Microsoft (in their infinite wisdom) decided that it needed a special set of libraries to make it work fully; while DirectX can fake it, the second analogue stick is mapped to different axes than 90% of the other pads out there, the left and right triggers are actually attached to the same axis (so holding down both is the same as holding down neither) and the rumble function is inaccessible without a lot of messing about. There is a special library for making it work as intended, but how many developers really want to include Xinput for this controller and DirectX for all the rest?

I bought this for my PC not xbox and it works great.Like the other reviewer said, its the newer version with updated dpad.Plugged it in to the pc windows recognized it and installed the driver in 2 seconds.And a lot of games set up the controls for you so its plug n play mainly.Works great with Dirt2, Saintz row2, Red faction guerrilla.A must buy for PC gamers wanting a control pad as its so easy to set up and has a trusted design.
Seller was faultless it arrived next day

My PC is Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit

Cheaper games better graphics more control, gotta love pc

I bought this controller as a back up to my wireless one and went for wired as a cheaper alternative and didn't think it would see that much use.

Having received the controller i decided to test it, and form that moment on this has been my controller of choice. I dont have to monitor the charge level and worry about it disconnecting at awkward moments. Also, i prefer this controller as it is comfier to hold due to there not being a battery pack and i can rest my fingers right across the back of the pad whilst playing.

I recommend this product.

hello
This is a great controller perfect for what I need, it plays on practically all of my games and for the ones that dont support controllers I can use a keyboard and mouse emulator.
The drivers wern't hard to find or install, I simply plugged the controller into a usb port on my pc, and windows found and installed the driver for me, no problems at all.
and since then it works fine
