Reviews around advertise (4.27 of 5)

  • This device works as advertised, that is when Microsoft and the team at windows ten aren't completely breaking the drivers for this device

  • For anyone who needs a wireless controller adapter for their PC, who still runs on Windows 7, DO NOT trust the blatantly false advertising that Amazon/Microsoft has marketed on this store page.

Reviews around price (4.24 of 5)

  • The biggest gripe I have with this adapter is the price
  • Well worth the price to have a solid connection for my controller!
  • The price is fair-No lag, even with a FPS-Adapter turns on when your controller turns on (when pre connected)Cons:-Adapter can take up more than one port, depending on your USB layout-The connecting process is sort of a pain, because it turns on your Xbox One (if you have one) when you first try to connect them-You can't turn off the controller/disconnect from the adapter without taking out either the batteries of the controller or unplug the
  • Great product for a great price what I really liked is that you can pair more controllers to it
  • My one and only beef with the product (other than the somewhat steep price) is the clunkiness of the form factor

Reviews around mouse (1.00 of 5)

  • This is a lifesaver for games like Dark Souls, where a mouse and keyboard make the game far more difficult than it already was
  • As it sits currently once a device is connected, and becomes disconnected you are stuck with an inoperable mouse, and you are stuck restarting your computer
  • Whenever I unplug it, my PC recognizes it being unplugged and plugged back in very quickly, making a notification sound rapidly play, and disabling my mouse
  • For some (including myself), due to the lack of WIndows driver support once an wireless Xbox One controller is disconnected from a PC the mouse becomes inoperable, and the only way to fix the mouse is to give the PC a hard reboot
