5.0 out of 5 stars Very nice controller better than last gen
By Donovan331 on November 26, 2020
The strong blue color looks nice and I like how there are 2 blue stripes on the Xbox button, the "X" is blue basically. Feels sturdier overall to me compared to last gen Xbox One controllers. I have medium sized hands I guess.

The bumpers feel more responsive, every single click registers once(I have an Elite that sometimes when you press the bumper it registers twice). D-pad is better and seems like a hybrid of the Elite(circular one) and regular controller one. I like the Share button and use it a lot, by default it will take a screenshot on a single press, and a video clip if you press and hold for 1 second.

Durability is the only thing I cannot test properly at this point, only been using it for a few days. But it feels sturdier to me overall and the grip texture in the back is also nice. 5 stars for me probably the best Xbox controller thus far(besides the Elite I mean), however I will update my review if I notice it breaking down after a few months because last gen controllers had some issues with Durability sometimes.

5.0 out of 5 stars CUIDADO CON EL MODO VIAJE!
Reviewed in Mexico on July 13, 2021
EL producto es excelente! me encantan! pero CUIDADO HAY UN MODO VIAJE QUE NO ESTA EN EL MANUAL. Este modo viaje evita que enciendas los audifonos, pase mucho tiempo intentando prenderlos y nada parecia funcionar intente cargarlos por que pense que estaban descargados y NO, lo que paso es que sin querer active el modo viaje este modo evita que al presionar el encendido se enciendan los audifonos ESTUVE A PUNTO DE DEVOLVERLOS! (casi lloro) pero bueno PARA SALIR DEL MODO VIAJE: tienen que tomar los audifonos conectar el cable a los audifonos pero no al USB ya sea de la Xbox o la PC DEJAN PRESIONADO EL BOTON VERDE DEL ENCENDIDO Y EL BOTON DE MUTEAR EL MIC AL MISMO TIEMPO y luego SIN SOLTAR LOS BOTONES conectan el cable ahora si a la PC o al XBOX y escucharan como se encienden los audifonos y asi LISTO ya salen del modo viaje. CUIDADO por que en el manual no viene esta información. si tienen dudas sobre esto escriban la pregunta y tratare de responderla.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great controller for PC
Reviewed in the United States on November 10, 2020
The controller works great with PC. However, out of the box the Bluetooth feature does not play well with Steam. In order to get it to work, there are a few steps you’ll have to do.

1. Download the Xbox Accessory App on the Microsoft store.
2. Connect the controller with a USB-C cable
3. Update the controller
4. Pair with windows Bluetooth devices
5. Start steam and it should recognize it as Xbox Series X/One controller.

5(a). If you paired it before doing these steps (like me). Follow steps 1-3, then go to “Bluetooth devices” remove the device and repair it. Then it should work with no issue.

Build: The controller itself is very sturdy and has nice textured grips on the back as well as the triggers. Size is pretty similar to previous Xbox controllers.

Battery: I can’t really comment on battery life since I just got it but I would imagine many of you will have some form of rechargeable battery.

Wireless: I haven’t had any issues since pairing it nor experience any types of interference with my other wireless peripherals. The range seems good, I’m roughly 15ft away from my TV/desktop.

Overall, it’s a much better controller then my ps4 controller. It plays well with Windows 10 as one would hope and once setup with Steam the buttons are automatically mapped.

5.0 out of 5 stars Los mejores audífonos para Xbox One y Series X|S
Reviewed in Mexico on June 14, 2021
Los estuve esperando por tanto tiempo y por fin los tengo, aun precio muy por debajo de los 3000 mxn. Yo no soy fan de los audífonos gamer pero para mi se escuchan super bien, el audio es nítido y claro. Algunos querrán irse por los Astro en cuestión de bajos, pero es cuestión de gustos.
Lo único malo es que si los sincronizas con la consola, al momento de encender los audífonos, entenderás la consola.

Reviewed in Mexico on July 10, 2021
El modelo que aquí se describe es bastante responsivo, fácil de conectar por BT [bluetooth] sin necesidad de adaptadores extras y al tacto se siente de una calidad superior solo por debajo de las versiones Elite. Además es ergonómico y los dedos quedan en una posición de lo mas natural, sobre todo los pulgares.

En cuanto a estética este modelo con diseño en camuflaje rojo se ve hermoso y elegante, lo cual te deja en un dilema; si le pones una funda de silicón para protegerlo pierdes la vista del diseño pero aseguras que dure más, así que ya queda a consideración de cada quien.

En cuanto a conectividad si se va a usar en PC como mi caso hacer lo siguiente:
1. Descargar la app ''Accesorios de Xbox''.
2. Conectar por cable el control cuando la app lo pida y seguir las instrucciones en pantalla.
3. Esperar a que el firmware se instale.
4. ¡Listo! ya podemos conectarlo por BT.

De no hacerlo van a tener problemas para vincularlo a su dispositivo BT, para hacer esto solo oprimir el botón de vincular por 3 segundos y su equipo debe detectar el control si todo se realizo correctamente.

Pero no todo son elogios y es precisamente para cambiar de un PC a otro es donde falla, pues si ya se tiene vinculado el control a tu PC, lo vinculas en otra y luego regresas a la primer PC donde lo vinculaste el control ya no se conecta, hay que quitar el dispositivo de la lista de equipos bluetooth y volver a vincularlo como la primera vez ó simplemente no lo va a detectar, sencillamente bastante engorroso para quien solo quiere conectar y jugar, aunque si te mueves en el ambiente de PC es algo con lo que siempre se esta lidiando y no debe representar un problema solucionarlo.
