i stoped using mine, and went back to Logitech RumblePad 2.

really bad quality control at those foxconn factories (place where they manufacture 360 gamepads).

thumb stick are loose, it moves about 2-3 mm in each directions, which causes problems especially in racing games.

My 360 gamepad is great, perhaps a little to stiff. I use a wired one on my PC.

The wireless ones I use on my 360 are pretty nice. Though I prefer the smoothness of the PS3 pad.

It's not force feedback; it's just rumble.

I can't find a good 360 controller, this is my second one already. I checked controllers that my friend have, its all the same issue.

thumb sticks are loose about 2-3 mm in each direction, its very noticable in racing games, especially in NFS Most Wanted. Thumb stick won't center correctly. In other games like Dirt, GTR2, i can adjust dead zone and its not a problem.

I checked about 15+ controllers, all have loose thumb sticks. Logitech Wireless RumblePad 2 has really solid sticks.

I just like to state a fact to all the n00bs out there that keeps saying that the PnP lead does not send data well ok why dones Vista and Win7 say this
"Xbox 360 Wireless Controller via Play & Charge Kit" Strange don't you think to say NO
data is sent or wait it does get sent its a fact.

And the controller does send data to the 360 via this also as you might see without sycing the pad is there so in other words it carries data.

Just cose we don't have a driver or way to use the pad via this does not mean its not
sending data this in your DM "Xbox 360 Wireless Controller via Play & Charge Kit"
Says other wise i tested it how i was here if it was just the lead that made windows
get that name it would be there when the pad is not charging and pluged in but its not
there for it is the pad passing the data to the PC.
