Manual could've been more detailed
None others I can think of
If you're worried about battery life do what I did and purchase a rechargeable battery pack for this pad, it won't cost you much and it's definitely worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Brackenwall Best controller there is.
In my opinion this is the best controller there is, good quality, good battery life (I use rechargeable battery packs) and easy to use with windows 7 / 8 and linux.

Finally caved into the idea of getting a controller for my PC.
Always been happy with the 360 controller and the build quality is a good as ever.
I'd rather have paid less for it, but if you're really concerned, the wireless adapter that plugs into your PC will accept/pair with any Xbox 360 controller if you've got an old console lying around (and it also works with the Xbox steering wheel/pedals I have which is awesome), so you could look around to try and just purchase the wireless adapter if you want to pay less.
Anyhow, I see this lasting for quite a long time and its also going to see a lot more support as Steam push out their OS, so I may end up using it for quite a few games
(can't compare it to competitors such as those offered by Logitech, but chose this for the familiarity)

Arguably one of if not the best controllers available for PC. I got this to replace my aging and damaged wired X360 controller which I must have had for around 8 or 9 years. This goes to show the build quality of these products, and this feels easily as solid, so will hopefully last just as long.
Another thing I love is the baked in support in many games for this controller and the on screen control prompts show the buttons just as if you were playing the console, but with the enhanced graphical experience that comes with a good modern gaming rig.
The freedom of wireless is fantastic and I have racked up a fair degree of usage (over 10 hours on leading brand alkaline batteries) without any indication of the batteries losing a bar of charge. Another real bonus is once you have one of these, the receiver included will allow up to 4 controllers to connect, so is great value for money too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JonG Great bit of kit.
What it says on the tin. One of the nicest-feeling controllers I've ever held; being wireless is just the icing on the cake.
