The controller did work although the box was open and showed slight signs of use. I have had no problems with the controller yet but was dissatisfied that it was open.
I love the new design and feel of this One S controller. Only issue is the Xbox/home button is way too sensitive. I have 3 of these new controllers and they all have the same issue. you can tap the button and itll act as if you hit it twice and bring out the side panel to view friends, messages and such. You press and hold it in order to turn off the controller or console and itll go to the home screen while downsizing your app (youtube, Netflix, game) then also bring out your side panel and might not bring up the turn off console/controller prompt. all my friends have the same issue. its not that big of a deal but to me it gets frustrating when trying to turn off my controller and it does a number of other things. OTHER than that the feel is amazing. the subtle grip texture on the back is amazing. syncing is a lot quicker and the Bluetooth is a nice addition. it also feels a lot lighter as well. again great product just the home button is too sensitive at times.
I recently changed television services and to my dismay neither remote offered by my provider would operate the 3 units that make up my television system. I did not want to make a big investment in the remote so after some research I choose the harmony 350. Programming was relatively simple (except my Samsung sound bar kept coming up as a receiver when I entered the model #). Using the remote to turn the 3 components in or off SHOULD be a one button command but often they do not all turn on or off. I guess Logitech knows that because off to the side of the main component buttons is an additional power switch (for use when one or more components do not come on or turn off). The other thing is line of sight type remote this unit has no play if it's not completely clear it most likely won't work.
I bought this updated Xbox One controller about four months ago. It isn't very different from the original controller released for the Xbone, but the minor changes that were made are fantastic. Microsoft definitely improved on an already great controller. I am very happy with this item. Haven't had any issues with the controller breaking, such as in the other reviews. The only thing I wish is that it came with a rechargeable battery.
