5.0 out of 5 stars Great all rounder 29 Nov 2008
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Very comfortable grip, works with almost all the games i have for pc. For those who say it doesn't work with vista it does, vista finds and installs the drivers automatically so no need for the disk. And the drivers are also fine, i haven't run into any problems whatsoever.

Don't hesitate to buy this just because of negative reviews, its cheaper than a lot of other controllers but it is a lot better than any other pc controller i've used. The lengthy cable that comes with it means i can sit back on a sofa while playing games.

This makes especially good for racing games like Pure or Need For Speed.
If you've already used a 360 controller then how great these are should need no explaining.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really good 5 Dec 2006
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This controller is great value for money, although it requires drivers once installed it works with just about everything.

I mostly use mine with emulators to play N64 and Snes games, and these work really well. A friend bought a different controller for only 2 less and the buttons doubled up with the d-pad and made it hard to play alot of games with. All the buttons on this controller work independently, are comfortable to press and feel well built.

5.0 out of 5 stars You wont be dissapointed! 23 Dec 2005
Firstly, this controller does what it says it does. It works perfectly on my Windows XP, even though you will need to install the software that comes with the CD. My CD didnt work, but no worries - the manual referred to the Microsoft website in which I could download the software from.
This controller looks impeccable, although the green lights only appear momentarily when the PC turns on, so no flashy stuff when you're playing :D
Oh and if you're worried, it does work with the Xbox 360 aswell, this controller is a better purchase than the standard wired controller for the Xbox 360. So you get both worlds for the less the cost!

5.0 out of 5 stars The only controller to buy 28 July 2008
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The truth is that I was never too big on controllers, but having got a hold of GRID and Lego Indiana Jones, I decided that needed one.

This is THE controller, if you don't already have one, or are not looking for a specialist type, I highly recommend this one!

Pro's: Great design, comfortable in the hands, new games come with in built compatibility (no need to set the keys), great for football, action, platform and driving games, very responsive, same standard as an Xbox 360 controller. No need for batteries, drivers install in a minute. Can be used as a second controller if you have an Xbox 360, the wire means that you don't accidentally turn on the Xbox when you use it.

Con's: It wasn't available a few years ago.

Tested on: Race Driver Grid, Lego Indiana Jones, Devil May Cry 4, Pro Evolution Soccer 4

Overall: Excellent, if you want a controller, this is it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Controller Ever 10 Oct 2006
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The xbox 360 controller is by far the most comfortable and effective controller ever created, the analogue sticks are perfect making it easy to control any game even fps games with a gamepad. The only thing that lets the conroller down are the drivers, which are very poor. I have stopped using the default microsoft drivers and now use 3rd party XBCD drivers (google it) which offer a lot more control.

The poor drivers let the pad down a bit but its still the best pad available for the pc.

5.0 out of 5 stars Makes modern PC gaming enjoyable again 29 April 2010
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Many worth-playing videogames are "ported" over to the PC from console versions. Which means that playing with a keyboard and mouse is about as pleasant as trying to use a mop and bucket to control the game. Some games are almost un-playable with mouse/keyboard (e.g.: Assassin's Creed II - Ubisoft seems to detest and despise all PC gamers). That's where this useful little 18-quid device comes in. It's apparently the same as a standard XBox 360 control pad, but has special innards so it can work on a Windows PC. It plugs into any USB 2.0 slot. It arrived in secure heat-sealed hard-plastic packaging, with a CD for the drivers and a basic manual. Opening the tough packaging without either slicing off a finger or damaging the product was a challenge. So if you don't like the controller then you won't be able to eBay it with packaging "as new". Once it was out of the packaging, I made the mistake of going straight into installing the third-party XBCD drivers - which I'd read are "better" than Microsoft's because they can be configured in more ways. However, using the XBCD drivers meant that none of my games could auto-detect the new controller. Then I read that if you use XBCD you _also_ need the $20 Pinnacle Profile Manager, and lots of manual button-configuration. So, to hell with XBCD - I un-installed everything and started again, this time just installing the drivers on the official Microsoft CD. Everything worked fine then. Games automatically detected the controller pad and let me use it without needing any configuration, yet still allowed keyboard control (very useful for using things like the FRAPS in-game screenshots tool, and for ALT-TAB-ing). I read that many games won't work with the _wireless_ version of this controller pad, which is why I bought this wired version. Read more ›
