This is also a wired controller, so it comes with all those pros and cons. The major advantage is that you can take this controller from your 360 to your PC since it's a USB connection. Of course, the main disadvantage is that, well, it's got a wire. It's about 9 ft. in length, so it will work for most setups. If you're that person who has a huge entertainment cabinet where your 360 is already 5 ft. off the ground, then I imagine you already know you're going to have a problem.
On a side note, or perhaps not a side note if you're a stickler for quality, the Guide or Home button, the one with the big "X" on it that has a metal etched 3D look on the standard controller, is just a flat sticker under a slightly convex clear plastic cover. For a controller that's all about lighting up and looking flashy, the "X" logo here doesn't light up at all, where it would be a great place to do so. Either way, the fact that it's just a sticker detracts a bit from the visual quality of the controller, and gives you the feeling that corners may have been cut elsewhere as well.
