Xbox 360 controllers are the best for PC games.
STLstew
Works great, no problem with installation or controller response, you'll want rechargeable batteries as it burns through them relatively quickly.
Amazon Customer
Now I can play my favourite games in my PC, because it has plenty support in all games and emulators.

If you have Vista and play games then you need this controller. Works perfect without the need of installing drivers or gamepad/game configuration. Finally an easy care-free gamepad for Windows! Remember not to install the CD that comes with this controller if you have Vista. I've had this controller for over a month now and it works perfectly. Take note that the batteries go fairly quickly.

The transceivers that come with the controllers are crap, shame I didn't learn about it until after I picked one up but these things have been failure prone for years. The power draw is high and users have had USB devices that were plugged in simultaneously fail (actual device failure, just just plug back in failure), and even if it doesn't kill other devices, the receiver is prone to fail itself. There was a link on Engadget years ago describing these issues and user feedback.

[...]

The problem with the receivers themselves is that the power draw is so high the F1 fuse on the unit is blowing (which could potentially kill underpowered USB devices on same computer). It can be opened up and hacked manually, but why should you have to do that? Now you've got a device which takes too much power, and exceeds the operating limits that even MS defined.

Oh - and product only warrantied for 90 days, never mind that the receiver doesn't get the wear and tear that the controller would. Disappointing, bad design that's sure to fail after long enough, and I would not recommend.

First off, this is one of the best controllers I've owned, works with Xbox360 as well, which is a big plus. Another thing I'd like to add is that after you purchase this, and would like to add another controller to play multiplayer games like FIFA, NBA Live, Street Fighter, etc, you just need to buy another regular Xbox360 controller. You don't need to buy another one of this model with the wireless receiver, regular 360 controllers will be recognized by the single receiver. The receiver can have a maximum of 4 controllers connected.

Other than that, the item I bought was stated as NEW, but the package came opened, the plastic packaging was slit throughout and was taken out before. Should have stated as openbox item, not NEW.

UPDATE 2/6/2011
I've been using the controller for a few hundred hours now and it still works fine. I've dropped it a few times, tossed it around in my backpack, and even stepped on it -- it still works perfectly! The main con still exists. My motherboard hangs on startup whenever this is plugged in. I tried flashing my motherboard to the newest update, but the problem didn't go away. No software fixes have been released to give the controller the ability to be turned off without taking out the batteries either. I haven't been tracking the battery life, but I believe I am getting over 40 hours. The controller is holding up great!

UPDATE 12/20/10
I've been using the controller for some time now and it still works fine. I have used it for over 40 hours and the battery still seems to be working fine. So, the battery life is as good as advertised, perhaps even better. The controller is in good condition and there is no significant "dead-zone" in the analog sticks and the buttons are just like when they were new. Construction and durability is definitely great as well. I only have one complaint I have noticed though. Whenever I have this controller's receiver plugged into my computer, it boots up slower. After the computer does the POST boot up test and beeps, it hangs and waits about 20 seconds before proceeding. I looked at the LED boot code on my motherboard during this delay and it said the USB controller was being initialized. So, whenever I have this plugged in, it takes the computer a bit longer to start up. This is a huge con for me as I like to have a fast and snappy startup. My solution is just to leave it unplugged until I start using it.

Using it on Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit and works fine.

Downloaded and installed that latest 64 bit software for the controller from Microsoft and then plugged everything in and it worked perfectly.

It fits well in the hand and is not too heavy. Only tried it with Batman Asylum so far and it worked out of the box with all buttons mapped.

I have a USB wireless keyboard and mouse, a wireless USB receiver for my Windows Media Center remote, and now this wireless controller. My wireless router is 1 foot behind the TV. Everything works fine without any interference.

Not as good as a keyboard and mouse for for some games (I am not going to use this on any of my FPS games because its too slow compared to a mouse).

It simply works. The best part is because its made my Microsoft and highly backed by them thanks to the Xbox360, all the PC games I tried were preconfigured for it to work just like they would if I was playing the xbox360 version.

my only issues with the controller is that it wouldn't update the software properly. It would prompt me to update but then tell me I wasn't connected to the internet and that it couldn't. It eventually updated after about 7 tries. And then there is the issue of turning off the controller. If you hit the guide button it pops up a small menu on the screen which shows battery life and there is a button to open some options with the mouse, but none of the options are to turn off the controller. My solution for turning off the controller has been pulling off the battery or just wait the 10 minutes for it to shut itself off.
