Rated 10 out of 10 by COD Fights This Controller Rules the World!
Six months ago I got an xbox 360 and I bought a second one of these controllers for when friends came over. This is by far the most comfortable controller that I have ever used. All of my friends and I have 360s, so we game together, and my controller has never failed me. It has even synced from 3 floors up. All of the buttons are placed perfectly, and I have never had the controller lag. I have tried many types of controllers, and none of them were as comfortable or responsive (except my dualshock 2 PS2 Controller in responsiveness and close in comfort). None of the third party controllers that I have tried have worked as well, and believe me, I have tried a lot of them. It also comes in a great selection of colors and designs so that your friends can say "Whoa! Where did you get that sweet controller?" If you are looking for a new controller, get these unless you want to waste your hard earned money on controllers which may not even work. I would strongly recomend it, trust me.

I love the wireless controller. It makes gaming that much easier and since there are no cords to get in the way you don't have to worry about people stepping over it or tripping over it. My fiance and I have never had any problems with our controller and I plan on buying another one this way we can go against each other without having to borrow one. It is very comfortable and very easy to handle. Gaming has never been so much fun!I've heard and noticed some complaints about how the controller will disconnect. This problem is very easily solved. CHANGE THE BATTERIES. That's all you need to do. After you do that the controller shouldn't disconnect anymore and you can continue your gaming experience. If it does happen to disconnect after you changed the batteries then you should call up Microsoft or take your controller back to the store. But try changing the batteries firs.I hope that this review helps anyone who wants to buy a wireless controller. They make the gaming experience that much more fun!

This controller is a must have for any Xbox 360 fan, especially if you are looking for a controller so you can play with friends. This has amazing comfort so your hands will never cramp even after a long 10 hour night of gaming. Also, some people complain that it is too heavy, but I think they make it work well, as it is nothing a 2 year old or above can't hold. It has great responsiveness and never breaks down during the middle of a game, causing you to lag when trying to aim in a shooter. There is also a handy 'Xbox' button in the middle so you can access the dashboard in the midst of gameplay; checking you messages, friend invitations, achievements, and much more. All in all, this is an amazing controller with great colors to choose from, and you can play forever and this will be your best friend. Trust me, get one, it is worth it. One final note, this controller has 100% no problem syncing to the console whatsoever, so don't be worried about that.
Rated 10 out of 10 by G.O.D best controller out to date
first of all i would like to say that i own all the next gen systems and the 360 controller is by fair the best one out. let me tell you why. first of all the controller is very durable. I don't know how many times i have dropped and thrown the controller and it still works like a charm. second of all the controller responds very very well. sometimes i don't even realize that the controller is wireless because it responds as well as a wired controller does. third i would like to say that the design is also great. the controller is very comfortable and i love having the the removable battery packs as well. after a wireless battery starts to die(lasts about 2 years) you can just remove it and buy a new one for 10 bucks. some controllers have a built in battery so when it stars to die you have to get a whole new controller. not to mention that the joysticks are great and work very well. to summarize id like to say that the 360 controller is more durable, more comfortable, and responds and functions better than any other next gen controller
Rated 10 out of 10 by Just Another Helpful Gamer Wonderful, if with a few flaws.
Right off the bat I want to say that this is the ideal controller for any 360 player, whether hardcore or casual. The design conforms to the shape of ones hand quite easily, much more easily than any other aftermarket controller that I have tested. I will say, however, that my "B" button stayed depressed, but this was after nigh-on 2 years of use. It really doesn't bother me that much, and if melee in Halo 3 requires a bit more pressure on your right thumbs, so be it. I find that the rubber cover on the right thumb stick may become torn slightly more easily than the left thumb stick, and if not fixed, will slip off. I do not recommend trying to use either thumbstick without the rubber cover. Pain ensues. Anyway, if one is looking for a good, mostly reliable control input for the Xbox 360, then go no further than the one found in the box, and here. I do not use any aftermarkets anymore, as this fulfills any needs I have.
Rated 9 out of 10 by can't kill this It's OK
ive had one since the end of 08 and its worked fine and ive never had to get a new one. People say the reschargable battery pack saves you money but it dosn't because it shows up on your electricity bill anyway. It disconnects alot but its range is amazing! I went from my basment to my attic wich is four floors and i could still talk to my friends with the X-Box still runnng in the basement.You probably don't want this if you get pissed off easily when your controller disconects or if you like talking to your friends non-stop with no interuptions because it disconnects very easily. You can prevent this by changing the batteries often and making sure there is not alot of stuff between the controller and the X-Box 360. I know i said i went up four stories and it still worked but i don't recomend doing that if your actually playing. I recomend you get a wireless if you like convinence and don't get pissed off easily.
Rated 10 out of 10 by NatetheHusker Best Controller Ever!
This controller is the best controller of all time to compliment the best console of all time! It is comfortable, easy to use and very tough. The triggers on this controller are the best to ever be on any controller, PERIOD (sorry Sony). The rumble support on it does it's job well, although not the best I've seen. If you haven't noticed this controller is wireless and the battery life is unbelievable; lasting me about 10 weeks with about 3 hours of gaming a day! The range of this controller according to Microsoft is 30ft., however I went outside with it to the back of my backyard (I own about 2 in-a-half acres of land) and it was still connected! The only downside is the D-Pad, it is smooth and too easy to hit the wrong direction, I do however, like the D-Pad for games like Mortal Kombat where you have to push defferent directions on the D-Pad to execute certain moves so instead of going up then back on it, I could just do the button in-between! Overall, this is the best controller of all time and my personal favorite (the Dualshock 2 not far behind)!
Rated 10 out of 10 by CWJost1 Awsome
As most of you know this conroler is great. Just athe fact that the controler is wireless gets people to buy it. But it's got great durability (I've dropped mine dozens of times and it looks brand new). But what i do not like is that the batteries run low very quickly and the controller starts disconnecting in the middle of playing, sure you can pause and swap out the batteries, but if your "in the zone" when your gameing on hardcore games like Bioshock or Call of Duty you dont have time to pause and swap them out, so that's probibly the only thing i dont like about this controller. But it's confortable, reminds me of those old N64 and PS1 days, and i do think that it's worth the money for the quality your paying for. So yeah i would reccomend this to a friend, i'd get a different color but if your one of those people that has to have the same color contolers as your console, this is for you
Rated 2 out of 10 by Floyd Better off new
I got an extra used controller the first one I got was black didn't even work, so I went back to get another one had to get a white one. When I got home I notices that the bottom area where the battery pack goes in was breaking off pretty bad about half of it. I took that one back and got a pink one, I was busy returning some games and didn't notice that the controller sticks look like someone chewed off all the padding, I've yet to see if it even works. I plan to take it back and just get a new one for an extra 10 bks I've already spent that in gas. And heads up they are very very dirty nasty you would think people would try to clean them up first before taking them in. I got this controller on a buy 2 used games or accessories get one free, but it looks like I'll have to get something else used now. I just think for the price when it comes to the controller and 10 bks new I'd just go new.
Rated 10 out of 10 by THE #1 GH fan THE BEST!!!
The Xbox 360 Wireless Controller is the absolute best! The feel is so fitting, almost as if it was made personally for me! I cannot count how many times I've dropped it, yet it still works like I just bought it! I just adore that it can control your 360 from your couch, you can shut it off, turn it on, open and shut the disc tray, even turn the controller off! As if I had it for a long time, the controller gets you used to it in 5 seconds. This controller owns the ps3 controller and the wii controller! I know some of you think I'm crazy, but I'm 100% sure about what I am saying. The Xbox guide button is in the perfect spot, so perfect I do not even need to look. (With the wii remote, I have to look to find that tiny home button!) If you are planning to buy a PS3, get a 360 instead, the controller is the bomb!
