Microsoft JR9-00011 Xbox 360 Wireless Controller for Windows
Cons:Price if not on sale.

Pros:Easy setup, wide compatibility with many PC games.
Comment:
Bought to use with a living room pc for gaming. Easy setup and great responsiveness so far. Replaced an unofficial OEM knockoff receiver that would constantly lose signal, no such issues with this controller that comes with the Microsoft wireless receiver that plugs into USB.

Microsoft JR9-00011 Xbox 360 Wireless Controller for Windows
Cons:Price, unless you get it for $30-40. Controllers should not cost more than that.

Pros:Works great for Xbox360 and PC
Comment:
Bought this to replace another wireless controller. Games like the NHL series quickly wear out the nubs and ruin the alignment of the thumbsticks.

Microsoft JR9-00011 Xbox 360 Wireless Controller for Windows
Cons:Lack of power off button

Pros:Compatibility
Comment:
No real problems with the controller as it works great with everything, especially steam games. However, one thing to note is the controllers lack of an actual on/off switch. The controller automatically turns off after several minutes of idleness but it would be much better if you could control it yourself

Microsoft JR9-00011 Xbox 360 Wireless Controller for Windows
Cons:None

Pros:Cheap when on special (39.99$)Works great without any configuration
Comment:
If you prefer the Xbox controller over the Playstation one, this is the model to get for your PC. Most if not all games that support controllers won't need any configuration to work with this.

Easy to setup. Works great for a ton of PC games. I only wish it used regular bluetooth rather than proprietary microsoft wireless crap but oh well. No complaints about anything else.

Microsoft JR9-00011 Xbox 360 Wireless Controller for Windows
Cons:No software applet to reassign key inputs from Microsoft or Windows.

Pros:Easy set-up, ergonomically positive, solid build, fully programable
Comment:
I downloaded Joystick 2 Mouse, an application that allows you to port your mouse to your gamepad and also reassign values, inputs to your specs for various applications. I set mine up for MAME. PC games, Windows operations and HTPC. Works totally 100% and in fact I will be buying three more of these for the family. You can install up to four pads per transceiver and the Joystick 2 Mouse will allow you to map and customise up to 16 pads, controllers at once. Solid buy and you can't go wrong.

Cons:My origial one stopped working. This is my second

Pros:Allows me to use Xbox 360 wireless controller on my pc.
Comment:
Not much else to say. I love playing games on my pc with the controller. Works well until the receiver gives up the ghost. Still I did get quite a few years out of the origial. Highly recommended.

Microsoft JR9-00011 Xbox 360 Wireless Controller for Windows
Cons:I always seem to be replacing batteries, which the controler had a built in rechargable system like the PS3 controller.

Pros:Top Quality
Comment:
Solid quality, can handle a ton of abuse. Many aspects of games are enhanced by having a controller such as this. In Battlefield 4, for example, I use the mouse for everything except for jets. Jets simply fly better on a controller.

Microsoft JR9-00011 Xbox 360 Wireless Controller for Windows
Cons:Bulky

Pros:Quality build, easy setup
Comment:
I bought this to use with my Steam games. More and more games are supporting controllers and out of all the available options out there, I decided on this controller.Not only is it great for my PC games, but the kids can use it on the Xbox if they need another controller. It's basically just plug and go.The controls are responsive and smooth. The device has yet to lag or drop  connection on me. Sometimes I'll be a good 20 feet away from the TV and have absolutely no issues.The only downside to this (and all Microsoft controllers) is that they tend to be quite bulky. I don't mind much, but my wife does not like the bulk of the unit.Overall, I have no issues with this product and when it's on sale, it's a great deal for sure.

Microsoft JR9-00011 Xbox 360 Wireless Controller for Windows
Cons:Wish USB receiver was available separatelyUSB receiver quite large, cheaply built

Pros:Durable, comfortable, well-balanced controller
Comment:
I'm familiar with this controller - I already have two of them for use with an Xbox 360. It's a great controller, durable, comfortable, the perfect weight and well-balanced. It's built well, including labels cast  into the buttons so they can never wear off.What this package really adds is the USB wireless controller for use with a PC. The controller is a standard Xbox 360 controller. Too bad you have to get a whole new controller just to get the (cheap) USB wireless receiver.The receiver works fine with the controller - even on Linux (using xboxdrv). I wish it was one of those tiny dongles but instead it's about half the size of a mouse. It's much more cheaply built than the controller though it's not designed to be held in the hand and constantly manipulated.Overall, works well!

Cons:D-pad is horrible

Pros:Best controller for PC gaming
Comment:
I love the 360 controller for gaming on PC. It's supported by almost every game. I feels better in my hand than an Xbox One controller, but that might be because I'm so used to this one.

Pros:Great controller for a great console (PC!!!:D )
Comment:
I use this controller for my PC setup in my living room. The Xbox 360 is a great controller and has wonderful compatibility with Steam Big Picture and many of its games. I did have some issue installing the drivers, however I read that it only happens rarely. A must have for any living room PC gamer.

This controller is great!Wakes from sleep mode without loss of connection, also having the triggers be so responsive to pressure helps in driving games as well.I will not subtract stars for my lack of Unicorn

Microsoft JR9-00011 Xbox 360 Wireless Controller for Windows
Cons:Receiver is too big

Pros:Exactly the same as XBox360 controllerGood quality and comfortable
Comment:
This controller is exactly the as the 360 console controller. It is basically perfect for playing any controller-enabled games.However, the receiver is too TOO bloody BIG!!! If it is the size of a USB thumb drive, it would have been perfect and I would give 5 out of 5. But the receiver is the size of a thick oval ginger bread. Simply ugly and messy while receivers for any wireless mouse and keyboard are so small and neat.
