Does this still register as an official 360 controller even though it isn't made by Microsoft?

In other words, when I open a game that supports the 360 controller will the buttons still be automatically mapped, or does this register as a generic controller instead?

I'm assuming it doesn't use the same drivers as the official one made by Microsoft. So I'm wondering if Windows will still think of it as the official thing because of this.

The only downside is the range of these 3rd party items. Since they're not all made the same, some will have better range than others.
Sometimes you'll luck out and get one from a batch that has excellent range. I've yet to buy one of these, but I'm just going to buy it at the source seeing it's 11$ and free shipping. At least then I'll know that it's NOT being advertised as 'legit'.
