Exactly what I needed. Dropped my controller the other day and the bumper button pinged across the room on impact.
Thanks OP, been on the lookout for this.
Perfect timing since I'm trying out GeForce Now and have never been a pc gamer. Thanks!
Thanks, just ordered.
Anyone know if prepaid Xbox credit cards are usable in the 'Microsoft Store'?
brilliant price :-)

Yep. I just did exactly that. Knocked another £15 off the price. Excellent!
Does this work with an Xbox or is it just for Windows? Also, is this the same as the controller that comes with a console?

Thank you description was a bit misleading as the first review on the website also points out excellent price. Thank you very much.
OP you have my sincerest thanks. Been looking for a controller at a decent price for about 3 weeks now.
So this is a standard Xbox wireless controller + cable. What’s the Bluetooth connection quality like? I have the latest Bluetooth 5.0 on a PCIE card. Otherwise it looks like this is the better deal for primarily Windows that comes with dongle with £15 off from MS: microsoft.com/en-…tab

I’ve got onboard Bluetooth and they work perfectly, although I tend to just use a wired connection if I’m sitting at the pc

Yes, it's the same controller that comes with the consoles now. It will connect to Xbox One consoles using their own radio frequency but as it also has Bluetooth it can also connect to just about any other device that has Bluetooth - including PC, phones, tablets, TVs, etc.

The included cable will allow you to use it as a wired controller, which can save syncing, or enable using it with a PC that doesn't have Bluetooth.

I've never had an issue with Bluetooth, and that's just using a really cheap BT adapter ($1 from AliExpress) in a USB 2.0 port.
But I've seen people say there's less input lag with the wireless adapter, although that could be down to your specific setup and other environmental factors.
The other things to consider are 1) the wireless adapter will let you connect more than one control and 2) it also supports headsets plugged into the controller (if you're on PC you probably have another way of connecting your headset anyway, but being able to use the controller might be more convenient).

Whatever you decide, that's a good price for the controller with wireless adapter because it's essentially £11.50 for the adapter, which is almost half their retail price. And it's the v2 adapter, which is much more compact than the original.

That would pop right back in, although the controllers are awful to open and reassemble. Basically an easy but frustrating fix.

Thanks. I had actually already repaired it before. The casing inside had snapped on this occasion meaning that the bumper button would no longer ‘sit’ in the casing. You could lift it out whilst the controller was fully assembled.

Yep
I recently got the limited edition gears of war controllers and it's absolute garbage, so I'll grab one of these at this price.

Cheers OP.

What bluetooth standard is your dongle? Mine wouldn't connect and I saw some people saying you need a 4.0 adapter (dunno if that's true).

These newer pads feel a bit cheaper (to me) than the original ones, but it's pretty neat being able to connect to my android phone and play GTA
Will this work with an Nvidia Shield wirelessly?
Great price, thanks OP! Heat added

It's 4.0 so that might be the case.
Personally I feel like the newer ones are slightly better made, and I particularly like the ones with rubber grips on the back - although I still think there's lots of room for improvement.

It has Bluetooth, so yes.

Is that the Elite that has the rubber pads? I think it's the split front on the old pad with the harder plastic that gives it a slightly more robust feel IMO, but they're very similar. The new one has textured plastic around the 'grip area' which I don't like. I dunno it feels more like a generic bluetooth controller to me. I'm not a pad breaker, I still have all my pads going back to the Master System/Mega Drive, so I'll see how it holds up

The Elite does, but also some of special editions of the regular controller do as well - for example, I have a Recon Tech controller and the back looks like this -39891486-SUb59.jpg
And by textured plastic do you mean how the whole shell is slightly rough? Because I don't think that's any different to the non-Bluetooth ones, it's just that it wears down over time so older controllers feel smoother. I upgraded to an Xbox One X just over a year ago and the new controller from that feels as smooth as the original controller from my standard Xbox one already. Also they're not all like that - some special editions are really smooth, I've got a Volcano Shadow one that's like that. Although personally I feel the texture makes them feel higher quality and it's the smooth ones that feel cheaper.
Thanks for posting :-) John Lewis just price matched as bought one yesterday on click & collect. Fantastic price

Not the whole shell just the grip area, it appears to be an advertised feature of the revised controller:

Oh, so it is different. I've never noticed that before, because it's really not as pronounced as that close up makes it seem. You can't really feel the "bobbles" at all, it just feels like a slightly rougher surface. It only really shows up when you hold it up to the light/use camera flash!

If the Raspberry Pi has Bluetooth or a Bluetooth adapter, yes!
These take 2 AA batteries? If you have rechargable batteries in there and then plug in the cable would it charge the batteries as you play?
