I have three official wireless Xbox One controllers that have been great to move back and forth between my gaming PCs. Open the Bluetooth config, select the controller, connect. All the configuration in the games is taken care of. I love that.
I also have kids who break things.
I'm looking to replace two of them, but am wondering, do the third party controllers connect to Windows 10 with the same level of ease as the official ones? Do they support XInput (I think), which allows them to work with pretty much everything automatically? I guess I don't know if, just because a controller says it works with Xbox, does it do those nice things Xbox controllers do on Windows machines.
I'm looking for the least amount of effort once connected. Losing controller settings and reconfiguring everything when the controllers switch between machines is not an option.
Thanks for the help!
