Nice adapter (some work required) – PC Wireless Gaming Receiver for XBOX 360 Controller - Black Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
Nice receiver to use my X-Box 360 controller for some games/emulators on my computer. After I was able to get it setup and recognized by my computer (Windows Vista) I was able to use this controller in various SNES and Genesis emulators with very little effort. Good setup for me, as I already owned a 360 controller and I can just use this receiver instead of buying a brand new controller just for the computer.
Cons:
This takes some time to setup to copy the files/drivers, although with the help of other posters I was able to install it fairly easily.
Other:
It would be an improvement if the developers could make this device "plug and play" compatible, but because it is based on a MS owned product that may not be possible.
Bottomline:
This product was still overall great despite the setup involved (10-20 minutes). Saves the money of having to buy a new controller if you already own a 360 controller. Works great with most emulators.
