Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month
- Very good, stirdy receiver with high compatibility - Easy installation, that is, as easy as genuine - stable - Recognised as genuine xbox 360 receiver
- Installation under windows 8, but this is due to limited support from Microsoft's side
The installation should be a breeze, an installation CD is added to the package containting the official Microsoft receiver driver and the software does not see a difference between genuine and this one. One major hickup is the fact that installation under Windows 8 is not simple at all, again, this is due to limited support from Microsoft. You need to manually specify the driver from the list of drivers preloaded with Windows. If you google "Microsoft xbox wireless receiver windows 8 installation" you will get to the Microsoft support site explaining how to do that.
I've been gaming intensively on this device with a genuine Xbox 360 controller for about a month now, haven't noticed anything out of the ordinary, no freezing, lag or disconnects, overall a vety reliable product
