Bought it for my kids as a present, wanted something that looked better than the average.
Slick and Awesome7/4/2012
Overall, it's a great controller. First time using the new adjustable d-pad, which is a nice touch. My only complaint is the product shots make the controller's red coloring look brighter than it actually is. It's more of a darker red, almost burgundy in color. All in all, great controller.
Halo Reach Controller Is Excellent!!6/24/2012
It's a limited edition Halo controller, what more can I say? I was pleasantly surprised at how simple the controller looks but the feel is great. I love the design and especially the free Banshee avatar prop.
Didn't last long.6/27/2011
I bought this for my son who plays a lot of XBox 360. He has other controlls like this one that he has had for awhile and has had no issues. This one he didn't have too long before it quit working. I didn't buy the warranty, so maybe I should have, but since we have never had issues before I didn't think it was worth it. Maybe we just got a bad one. Before it quit working though, it was great and he loved it.
The item was delivered new in a retail box in a timely fashion. The product worked as advertised.
Ignore the numerical ratings for this product1/8/2011
The numerical ratings for this controller that Buy.com includes for my review do not relate to this product. They are ratings for software, not hardware accessories. So, even though they all say "5", the only one that matters is the "Overall" rating. The Halo: Reach controller for the Xbox 360 is a very good controller, but really not much different than the original controller. The price was the best I could find so I snapped one up. It was a good buy for the money. The controller has a textured surface, which allows your hand to grip it more firmly. It look cool. All the buttons work as advertised.
OEM accessory at great price1/7/2011
Faultless; best price I could find
Great Price for a 1st part wireless controller1/6/2011
Saw this on slick deals and jumped on it, purchased 2 and both work as they should. I would recommend it to anyone who needs an Xbox 360 controller.
Best price in town1/5/2011
Seller had a great price, shipped quickly, and came in standard retail packaging, as shown. The controllers worked perfectly. I would purchase from this e-tailer again.
I shopped around and could not beat buy.com's price, so I ordered 4 controllers (for myself and as gifts). They were delivered on time and in perfect condition. The controllers worked great. I would recommend also purchasing NiMH rechargeable battery packs/charger; either XBOX (3600mAH) or AA's. I chose to go with Sanyo Eneloop NiMH AA batteries (2x 2000mAH). I use these batteries on other electronics. These batteries have the following advantages: 1. less expensive 2. less self discharge (i.e. they hold their charge). 3. better energy density (i.e. will last longer). 4. can be used on other controllers and electronics.
Great gift for Halo fans1/5/2011
Halo Reach Xbox 360 controller is a great controller, but only for those customers who wants to collect different design controllers or who is a Halo fan. Although their is no difference in usage from normal controller, i would say its a great buy for under $40 bucks from buy.com compare to normal controllers price else where... I bought this controller from buy.com, the controller was brand new as mentioned and the shipping was lightening fast..
