There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Note that these adapters have a pretty well-known fault in that a fuse inside will eventually wear out and blow, rendering the whole adapter useless. There are a few repair guides online but since a new adapter is so cheap I figured it was less hassle to just buy another.
I've attached pictures of the item on sale (black), the original retail product (white), and a screenshot confirming that Win10 recognizes it as a 360 wireless adapter.
I needed this so I could connect my wireless xbox 360 controllers to my computer to play some games I have on Steam, broadcasted to my laptop hooked up to a big screen tv. I had previously been using a wired 360 controller, but one of the joysticks is off calibration, and also, is in convenient having the cable ran along the room.
I have a play and charge kit for my controllers, but apparently they do not carry controller data, just power, hence needing the wireless receiver.
Used the installation disc received with the product, connected the receiver to USB on my desktop, and then connected a wireless controller to it. Controls Steam using the game view, so it appears it is working as intended. Only issue I personally have with the product is that the green LED light on the receiver is always lit while connected to USB whether or not a controller is actively connected. I don't plan to disconnect the receiver whenever I am not using it, so the light is basically going to always be on whenever my desktop is on.
-Easy to setup
-Easy to use
-Allows simple, official, connection of your xbox 360 controllers to your computer (I have tried a normal 360 controller, and a rock band 3 wireless keyboard)
-LED light is always on when connected to USB, even if controller is not connected
I did not even need the CD when using it with Windows 10 (I haven't tried it with any other operating system as of yet.) . It knew the product and installed the appropriate drivers automatically.
All I had to do was grab an Xbox 360 controller, click the sync button on the controller and then click the sync button on the unit and it found it right away, installation complete.
Total process? less than 2 minutes, including opening the box from Amazon, lol!
The range seems quite adequate, I used it to pause a movie I had playing from in the other room so unless your gaming rig is real far from your chair I doubt range will be much of an issue, lol!
Not too much else you can say about it, it does what it is supposed to do, does it easily and quite cheaply. I would not hesitate to recommend this adapter to any of my friends that are into gaming and have an extra 360 controller sitting around. It is so much less expensive than buying a new controller and you can always get replacements at gamestop or online refurbished for a laughably cheap price.
Keep in mind this does not mean the controller will work with every game you own, if the game does not have native support then it is likely that they controller will not be usable with it.
