Or is it another knock-off? I know Amazon is reputable but I heard that these receivers were only being produced for sale in a bundle with a 360 controller, not just being sold standalone like this one.

Here is the Amazon page: Amazon Link

Here is the original seller's website link: TotalConsole.com Link

    If you scroll down a little on the Amazon product page to read the reviews it's pretty obvious this is not a genuine Microsoft product - the only question really is if it'll work for you. Sep 14, 2012 at 15:40
  • Hey, thanks for that, didn't even think to check the reviews... This question is good to close now. Sep 14, 2012 at 16:08
  • I accidentally purchased one of the knockoffs and have found it to be perfectly adequate once successfully installed, but installation can be tricky. Good luck.

There's a cheaper knockoff that's around $7, it works just the same and the only difference in setting it up is you manually do it which is incredibly easy.

I have the $7 knockoff one and it works great, I actually have it hooked up via an internal USB header inside my case.


If you dig into the reviews a little further a lot of people are pretty happy with it. 4 stars out of 388 reviews is pretty good. While it is a knock-off, it does seem legit. Might be a cheap alternative if you don't mind it not being made by MS.

    Keep in mind that if something does go wrong, Microsoft will almost certainly not provide support for this. Sep 14, 2012 at 18:14
