Thanks DaverJ, I'm glad I'm not the only one. I did get really lucky with Win 10 though, and it didn't behave badly at all.

It's a premium item at a premium price. If nobody buys it, than I'll doubt they'll make a controller as nice again. With that said, go geeks. Buy and enjoy the good stuff.

Any rumors of Xbox 360 game compatibility in Windows 10? That would be something to see, even though there are probably more PC owners with older rigs than the 360.

He speaks the truth. I've been running it for months as well, and am very pleased with it. Easiest install ever, even on my friends old crappy machines that I use it on the repair their foolishness.
