"Give Your PC an XBox edge :)"

The XBox 360 Wireless Gaming Receiver is a nifty little device that allows you to connect up to four standard Xbox 360 controllers (with headsets) to your PC.

This means that you can use Xbox 360 controllers to play your favourite games on your PC allowing you to improve gameplay and make any game feel like your playing on a 360. It is simple to connect through USB comes with an installation disc that is easy to use. Connecting controllers is simple and you can even bring up a small 360-style interface to show you which controllers are connected, both features that 360 owners will find very familiar. You can also connect the 360 racing wheel addon.

The controllers do sometimes suffer from slightly reduced sensitivity, especially in the analogue sticks, when compared with the 360, but their perfomance is still much better than other third-party PC controllers.

Personally, I would recommend this product if you already own a 360 but also play alot of PC games but I wouldn't got out of your way to buy the receiver and pads as it is rather costly when compared with other solutions.

Still, on its own, this is a very useful piece of hardware and at a very reasonable price and I recommend it to all.
