Works perfectly (with the right driver) – PC Wireless Gaming Receiver for XBOX 360 Controller - Black Reviews

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

Pros:
This works as a stand in for the more expensive Microsoft Brand wireless adaptor. You're computer won't recognize it as a microsoft one. But you can still force the correct driver (insturctions are in the forums/comments) onto it. Then it works perfect.
Cons:
Just the effort it takes to force the driver to work (maybe 5 min total) It's not clearly visible how to turn off a controller when you are finished with it. I always pull the batteries.
Other:
Makes a nice addiction to the Big Screen Mode in steam.
Bottomline:
It's cheap. A tiny bit more effort. Worth the savings.
