First off. The instructions are garbage, but It comes almost pre assembled needing 2 screws and 4 Allen screws to mount the wheel and shiftier. It's super easy to do. There is a video link as well in the instructions. It comes with all the tools you need except a Phillips screw driver. (If you don't own one you should buy one anyways)
1) The packaged instructions border on useless. There's a link to a youtube video on the instruction sheet on how to set it up. Use it.
2) The video instructions are excellent
3) It was initially a bit wobbly because the wheel would shift under load. Turned out I didn't screw the wheel plate's adjustment screw enough. Then the wheel started to shake. Turned out I needed to tighten the screws holding the wheel in place.
4) It folds up pretty compactly and you don't have to detach any components to stow it away. I would have built my own if it wasn't for this critical feature.
1. I don't like the placement of the gear shifter. The g29 gear shifter I installed feels awkward and misplaced (see attached photos). Even when I tried placing the shift platform upside down like the instructions suggested to lower it a bit. I know it was put beside the wheel for quicker access. And I bought it knowing that and I gave it a try. And personally don't like it.
2. The price is kind of high.
3. The height adjustment isnt high as I would like.maximum goes about 28 inches. I roughly measured from the floor to the base of the wheel platform.
1. Sturdy and well built.
2. Puts away nicely and easily.
3. Easily adjustable well positioned wheel and pedals.
4. Doesn't move on carpet or hardwood. Even when I tried to force it to drag.
Even with all the cons, I still gave it a 4/5 i would have gave it a

This wheel feels really solid and well built.
The leather casing gives it a good grip
I agree with other reviewers that the wheel could be bigger but the size is not an issue over all.
I like how simple it is to clamp down or remove. Once clamped it really stays in place.
The peddles are made of steel and the base is plastic, overall feels really well built
Mine sits on the rug and does not move even when jamming on the brake.
So far after only 3 weeks of use I am very happy with this wheel.
I'd recommend this wheel.
The Driving Force GT that I used with my PS3 is just a toy in comparison to the G29. This is a proper simulator tool. I played hours of Project Cars and F1 2016 on my PS4. I noticed how easy it is to catch those slight overseer moments. With the game pad (same PS4 games) or with my old Driving Force GT (PS3) I had to set up all cars to understeer a bit so I wouldn't lose the rear end on corner exits. With the G29 I get great feedback that allows me to set the cars up to be more neutral. In combination with the great throttle pedal modulation, my corner exit speeds are faster than ever.
The brake pedal has great feeling.
1. Short throw. Short is ok, but this is almost toy-like.
2. Frictionless and minimal gating. You can drop it into other gears too easily.
3. Weightless shifter with complete plastic feel.
Fortunately for all except point 1, it’s resolvable weaknesses.
TOP TIP, replace the knob with a weighted version — even if it’s a generic aluminum knob. You can buy an adapter or 3D print one for free so you can use a “real” knob. This will change the feel immensely, though I suspect at the expense of the longevity since it might place more stress on the gate and internals. Finally, buy or print the friction/stiffener mod for the H-gate. These two mods will all but eliminate the

When I bought this, it said it was not compatible with the T150 but actually it is. The wheel just clamps to the platform and thats it. I had more difficulty with the pedals as they were too wide for the stand and the attachment holes did not match up properly. As a result I had to drill a couple of holes in the supplied pedal mount holder but it worked fine once I did that and found some longer bolt nuts.
The stand is very sturdy and works great. I also utilized some cable ties to make it tidy looking. The wheel stand is also adjustable so you can have it higher/lower and change the angle which is handy.
This makes my wheel purchase worthwhile. Without it, I would likely not use the wheel very often.
Two quick-release devices make adjusting the steering wheel height and angle very easy to quickly accommodate from an 4' tall boy to a +6' tall adult. The only drawback is the steering wheel mounting bracket could also benefit from a quick release or knob as its angle is generally locked into place during set-up by a couple bolts/lock washers. This extra quick release would also make it easier to fold the unit flat for storage.
During use the stand is very stable and exceeded our expectations. Four stars is based on the 'missing' third quick release - add that and it's an easy 5-stars

(Come on. It's an Xbox controller... You can't really go wrong with a genuine part now can you...)
With direct Windows 10 support, best support in a plethora of games (in comparison to Steam and PS4 controllers), and my favourite ergonomics to boot.
Been using the same controller for years now. Zero issues. I've even had it fall off my desk onto hard laminate floors countless times. Only issue was the clip on the battery door snapping, which was instantly fixed with some super glue. But considering the amount of wear and tear I put this tank through, it's still kicking flawlessly.
My 360 controller is seeing tons of deadzone on both thumbsticks. Granted, I've been using that for 5+ years. This Xbone controller sees no sign of deadzones, with the thumbsticks remaining as snappy as it was out of the box.
If the Elite controller wasn't so bloody expensive, I'd

Can't go wrong at that price. Replaced my OEM white wireless controller that my psycho ex broke :)
Highly recommended :D

It's a nice controller, just really damn noisy.

So I decided to give controllers a try and its definitely changed how I play games. Being able to sit back in a reclined position and playing Assassins creed Origins/Odyssey hours at a time is a joy when compared to killing my left wrist on a keyboard.
The controller is SUPER comfortable and easy to grip (it has a rubberized grip with a triangular texture/pattern). Joysticks are tight and dead zones don't seem to be a thing. Its relatively light and easy to balance. Triggers and bumpers are smooth and tactile respectively and super satisfying to press. Wireless pairing is incredibly quick from startup and latency is pretty much non existent.
Pairing this with the official rechargeable battery pack and mini windows 10 wireless
Playing games like Rocket League or fast paced FPSs can be very hard on these and I've come to accept that I'll get a year out of one before something breaks. This Sport White however gave me less than months before I had to pull the back palm rest cover off and scrape the tape off the Right Triggers landing pad because it was sticky. The left stick already has a substantial amount of drift to it.
I think after this I'm switching to PS4 controllers for my PC gaming. Xbox Controllers are simply poor quality these days. Which is horrible considering their price is near on 100 bucks with tax.

UPDATE - June 29, 2017:
This controller has given me nothing but problems, with trigger glitch and all sorts of weird in-game bugs. At first I thought they were software issues, but after swapping out it became evident this controller was the problem. Worked fine initially, but conveniently crapped out after the 3-month warranty period. Microsoft support was totally useless and unwilling to replace.
There however a few problem with this controller:
- No built-in battery. IMO, this should be included at this price range.
- The headphone/mic jack use a somewhat uncommon standard. With my Bose quiet comfort-15 I only get sound on the right hear. My iPhone headphone works but not mic.
- Its hard to tell if its failing to sync or you just ran out of battery.
I'm giving it 3 stars because it has a not uncommon bug in the installation process for some windows 10 users. The installation should literally be just plug and play, however this was not the case. At first I thought something was wrong with the wireless adapter as its light wasn't turning on and so I couldn't pair it with the controller. A quick google search revealed that this is due the drivers for the wireless controller not installing automatically (which it should be especially on windows 10). Trying to get window's 10 to find and download the drivers itself didn't work so I had to spend about 1-2hrs manually finding, downloading, installing, uninstalling and then repeating the process for drivers until one eventually made it work. After that I was

The price is great considering it’s a limited edition controller and it comes with in game downloadable content for sea of thieves as well as a game pass free trial so it really is a great value for such a beautiful controller it’s not much more expensive than a regular controller and is considerably cheaper than a custom controller and is still a bit cheaper than a design lab controller.
The design on this controller is beautiful and unique there are no controllers on market that look anything like this unless they are custom I think that’s what I love so much about it you get a custom look for a great price.
This is the only controller on market with multi coloured triggers and that gold trigger was a great addition. It is also
Overall a good damn product.
FYI the skull on the controller glows in the dark.

The controller is a great quality, battery lasts long, and the feel in the hand is amazing. I prefer the feel of the familiar PS4 controller a bit better, but based on compatibility with Windows this is the best controller I can get for my PC. Really love the look of this Phantom Black edition since it compliments my White/Black computer case nicely.
It’s a unique special edition controller. The top portion’s transparent shell goes well with the gold-like solid colour of the handles/D-pad.
It also comes packaged with a 14 Day Xbox Game Pass subscription and a 14 Day Xbox Live Gold subscription, too!

As far as a controller goes, I honestly prefer the PS4 controller but the Xbox One controller has better native support in Windows 10. They've fixed the bumpers since the original design of the controller, which is nice. It still doesn't feel super high quality considering the price. The plastic feels a little cheap If I'm honest. I do like the textures on the thumb sticks though, that's a nice touch.
My biggest issue is that the headphone jack doesn't work if the controller is plugged into your PC over Bluetooth. That seems like an obvious thing that would have been implemented. Perhaps it was too much data to handle over Bluetooth? Unsure, but it's unfortunate none-the-less. Apparently there is a separate adapter which you can purchase to enable this.
It takes AAs, not an included battery pack, which could be a positive if you play for extended sessions, swapping could be cheaper.
It seems to work wireless (over bluetooth) with w10 and Linux (utility needed)
Other than being a little expensive, it's a pretty nice controller.

Works well and has held up a year and a half of moderate gaming use, but it just gets left in the controller, if I was in the habit of connecting and disconnecting regularly I could see how it could easily be broken.
I've returned the original and received another new Chatpad, which also suffers from the same problem. I've seen other reviewers have the same issue, which leads me to believe it's a defect.
The jack either sits wrong or is constructed poorly so that the slightest nudge of the headset wire sends static crackling through the earpiece and actually broadcasts over party chat.
Friends quickly get annoyed by this, as it's nearly impossible to hold the controller perfectly still while playing a game. It wouldn't be so bad if it didn't broadcast the crackling & hissing through party chat.
I have mixed thoughts about the new 3.5mm TRRS (4 pole) connection. You can now use the same headset you use for your phone on the xbox chatpad, and vice versa, but it

The keyboard on the flip side is just the right size. The only thing I can think to make it better would be for there to be an option
I will probably return for a new one. Hopefully that one works as it should. If, not I will give up.

I have the basic black model of this controller, and bought the "Dawn Shadow" version for my girlfriend who has hers hooked up to her gaming laptop via bluetooth.
It functions perfectly well, and I like the feel and weight of it in my hand while I'm playing as well as the vibration mechanism during game-ply.

Now, I would like to clarify that I bought this because of two reasons: 1.- I like GoW :P and 2.- I wanted to use it with my gaming laptop. It is easy to setup and pair with a laptop that has Windows 10 since it uses Blutooth. Please keep in mind that it does not come with any usb cable.
I deducted a star because it works great with Steam games, but with Windows Store games (like GoW4) you need a usb cable in order to plug it to the computer for the game to recognize it. This could be just due to GoW being a XBoX One and Windows game, but because of that I decided to deduct the star. Also,

but now that I have played with it . I'm never going back to anything else . Mechanical button are the best . Its comfy , elegant and performant. What else do you want ?
With Razer Synapse for XBox, that you can get on Windows Store if you have Windows 10, you can easily reconfigure what the buttons do to whatever you want, and you can also desactivate them. The ABXY buttons are a bit different than the ones on the Wildcat, you have to put more pressure on them to activate them, unlike the Wildcat which needed only a slight touch. I feel those buttons on the Wolverine much more natural. They are still clicky and mechanical, but you have to press them half the way through to activate the
