Xbox wireless controllers are the best! So easy to use and when you gotta charge them just put them on the Charging stand. They are also pretty durable. Seeing as how my husband has thrown them around the room a few times and they still aren't broke.
To begin you will more than likely need more than one controller for your system so invest in a Microsoft brand controller, plus the play and charge as I've seen batteries have meltdowns. As for this being a great product it is, enjoy your gaming
I love the look of the white controller much more than the black ones. Unfortunately, if you play a lot, the oils and dirt on your hands will make it start to look dirty and dingy, and I haven't found a way to clean it effectively to remove that.
We own four 360 wireless controllers. They do work get, never have a problem with the connection. Te down fall is they are super expensive and the batteries die quick, and that can get pricey always replacing battery's!
