No but I think I'll go down and have a look tomorrow for one as well -the 360 controller is by far the best out of the console controllers and probably better than the Saitek ones too

Yeah at 20 bucks its almost criminal not to buy this and get wireless functionality on your PC. I'd use this, for example, to fly in BF2........or to play some console ports.

$20 bucks? Nice option.

Yeah, for $20 bucks it's a steal, if you already have a 360 controller.

I got this thing..

I can't get it to work with my Logitech G7 Mouse..

I searched around and i guess it conflicts with almost anything that is 2.4Mhz wireless..

not good..

The purpose of this device is to be able to use an X360 Wifi Controller on your PC, without it, you'll need a wired one.

You could by the Controller for Windows (cheaper?) or use an official 1st or 3rd party one for the 360.

I picked this up, it works great (for MAME and old school stuff... I'm not a PC gamer), but it really sucks when you have a PC and a 360 in the same room / vicinity. You have to (un) initialize and press the "find" button to tell each system to look for the controller in question...

I don't have any issues with my Logitech mouse, although they sit quite a bit away from each other (this base and my mouse's base).

Enough with the PMs about the name...

The question for those who already have the MS xbox wireless receiver. Does this (game) controler can be use as the DVD player remote control of your game's HTPC via this device as it could on xbox360?
