It works, but you need the driver – PC Wireless Gaming Receiver for XBOX 360 Controller - Black Reviews

posted by buskas on 11/21/2012 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
- Cheap - Works well when you install the driver
Cons:
- You must user the drivers from the included CD, the original MS adapter drivers do not work with this - Not plug&play - You must manually install the driver
Other:
- Very long cable for a wireless adapter. Pro for some, con for others. - XBox controllers will appear as audio devices, so if you lose sound after attaching the controller, right click your sound icon and make sure your sound card is the default playback device - To install the driver, plug the device in, chose "select driver manually" and make windows search for the drivers on the provided CD.
Bottomline:
Good value for money, but I wish the drivers were either posted online or provided on a USB stick, since optical drives are becoming extinct..
