Functioning distance of up to 33 feet away from adapter. Input switch with 2 input protocol modes for extra versatility. Direct input (standard hid protocol) supports 4 controllers at the same time. Xinput (xbox 360 controller protocol) supports one controller per individual adapter. All buttons (except for power button), shoulder triggers, analog sticks and their clicking tops are fully functional. Compatible with Windows 98,xp,Vista and Windows 7 and Windows 8(32 bit and 64 bit versions). Operation notes - how to set the turbo function? To set turbo for individual buttons, press and hold the home button and the button you wish to set turbo for. To remove the setting for that specific button, press and hold the home button and the button you previously set turbo for. To clear all turbo settings for all buttons, quickly press the home button twice within half of a second. If the input switch is set to the direct input mode, the controllers are recognized as standard human interface device. Your controllers can be calibrated at the windows gamepad setup screen. Up to four controllers can be recognized by a single adapter while in this mode. Setting the switch to xinput mode will make it possible to fool certain pc games which lock out proper input modes from the user unless an xbox controller is attached (for a list of these games, check Wikipedia). While in xinput mode vibration feedback is available. The drawback is that while in this mode, only one controller can be recognized by the adapter. If you want to map your buttons to keyboard keys, look for joy2key software online.

I'll admit that this was also causing me some amount of grievances, but I googled it and apparently there was a firmware update in February of this year and you can now switch back and forth between standard letter-to-letter mapping and A<->B, X<->Y mapping.
So, in case it helps anyone:
- Go to their site, find the firmware upgrade from 2/10/15, download, unzip, run.
- You may need to unplug your adapter and/or hold the sync button or something to get the button to light up.
- After installing the firmware update, you can hold Start and B for 3 seconds to switch to standard physical mapping (A<->B; X<->Y)
- If you want to go back, hold Start and A for 3 seconds.
I don't think there's any sort of indication or anything, but it worked for me.
It took me a little bit of searching to get this working exactly how I wanted it to... but it was also cheap and seems to now be working exactly how I want it to. The fact that they released a firmware update that fixes what seems to be a lot of people's top grievance with it (after a precursory Google search) is neat too.
As such, I can't really say anything against the product... I'll let you know if it fails me.
Pairing a Wii U Pro controller was stupid easy. Press sync button on receiver. Press sync button on contrller. Wait a few seconds. Gold!
It's worth noting that there is a software update for this adapter that will allow you to remap the buttons (it swaps the A and B buttons to make the Wii U Pro controller behave more like an Xbox 360 / Xbox One controller). The software update can be found on Mayflash's website.
I've owned this device for over a year now and have had NO issues. I'm an avid gamer and use this adapter just about every day. It has just as good range as the original Xbox 360 controller. I'm able to control from 20 feet away in a different room.
I'll first mention there are software solutions for getting a Wii U controller to work with a normal Bluetooth adapter. The software solution consisted of a special Bluetooth management program, a button-mapping program, and an XInput driver program to allow it to be recognized as an XBox controller. In my experience these workarounds are a bit clunky, and it seemed to report the analogue sticks as binary (example: holding up on a stick will report all the way up, or nothing at all. There was no middle-ground or places in between). While there may be fixes to this behaviour and have it work as expected, I wanted something simple. I wanted to to press the sync buttons then expect the controller to just work. That's why I bought this adapter.
This product is basically a dedicated special-purpose bluetooth adapter that maps and works as a gamepad or XInput adapter all-in-one, so everyhing is done in the adapter without the need of extra software configuration (except installing the driver once before you first use it).
It took a minute or so the first time for my computer to recognize the adapter (after installing the drivers first) and the Wii U controller, but since then it connects quickly every time I power on my black Wii U pro controller. The first time I connected it one of the analog sticks was reporting as slightly off-center, but that was fixed by calibrating it in the Game Controllers control panel.
In the Xinput mode it detects and works as an XBox controller just fine. One thing to remember, other than the different location of the analogue sticks, the A and B buttons are reversed compared to an Xbox controller, as are the Y and X buttons. The map perfectly well, but if you've been using an XBox controller beforehand this will be noticeable. You'll either have to just go with it and adapt, or remap your buttons.
So far the adapter has been reliable with connecting and maintaining a connection. I haven't had any problems using it as an XBox controller in my games so far, and in other software like Steam and Oculus's home software. The Wii U controller will still go asleep if left idle for too long, so you'll have to press a button to wake it up and have it automatically re-connect. That's to be expected though.
Connection / sync works perfectly. Home button also brings up steam big picture. This is so much easier than my experience in getting something like DS4win and other software to work consistently with other controllers.
The Wii U Pro controller is a decent controller, and this is a great way to add a player 2 controller if you have a pro controller sitting around. For me though, I prefer using this controller over brand new XBOX One S controller for most games. My SO hates that button layout won't match XBOX letters, but this is a non-issue to me. Fact that software gives you option of both layout schemes is also a great feature.
Update 2018: I still use this item and my Wii U Pro controller on PC. I have Xbox One controller sitting in my desk with no batteries in it. Would rather use this and Wii U Pro controller for PC.
