Works, but takes a lot of patience,
This review is from: SteelSeries Stratus XL, Bluetooth Wireless Gaming Controller for Windows + Android, Samsung Gear VR, HTC Vive, and Oculus (Personal Computers)This was easy to work on my android phone. However, windows 10 makes this literal hell. The newer updates cause issues with blue tooth pairing. It took me off and on two days following the instructions given. No dice. Decided to hold the button down, and saw the light combo 1,3 and then 2,4. If you see this, you're getting close. After about 45 secs of holding down the button, I saw input with a controller symbol pop up on my windows 10 search pairing. After clicking on that it still had issues pairing. As I was typing an email to steel series for help, I was still trying this for a third time. Before I hit sent I saw the input pop up again. I clicked on it and this time held the button down again. Now I don't know how long this took, because I just held it down for windows to do it's thing. Eventually it connected. And here we are. It still shows up even when I turn it off.
It works, buttons sometimes don't seem to work right? If I had known this was an issue I might have... Read more

Don't buy this for Windows gaming!,
This review is from: SteelSeries Stratus XL, Bluetooth Wireless Gaming Controller for Windows + Android, Samsung Gear VR, HTC Vive, and Oculus (Personal Computers)I have had this controller for a few days now. I liked it the first day once I fixed the joystick that kept sticking in one specific spot. (See photo) But it hasn't worked right since! I did the firmware update, setup the controller to my liking in the engine, and it STILL doesn't work right. I bought it to use on my windows pc, and after day 1 I have nothing but problems from it. At first the controller would just spin my character in circles nonstop like the joystick was electronically stuck. It would come and go. (This was after the firmware update) Then, it stopped connecting to my pc. It would show it was connected in the Bluetooth menu, but the controller would not stop trying to "find" the connection. So I unpaired the controller, then tried to repair it. Again, pc showed connected. But it would not connect. I tried the controller from another computer. Same exact problem. (Yes, I tried turning it off and on after pairing) I tried again the next day and it finally... Read more

Wanted to Love This Controller,
This review is from: SteelSeries Stratus XL, Bluetooth Wireless Gaming Controller for Windows + Android, Samsung Gear VR, HTC Vive, and Oculus (Personal Computers)I really wanted to like this controller. I love, love, love the layout and feel of it. I love that it has mouse mode, one of the main reasons I decided to buy it. It looks great which is the only reason I am giving it two stars. Because it has one fatal flaw. It ghost touches buttons. There are times where I'm playing a game and the trigger buttons are active even when I'm nowhere near them. Sometimes shaking the controller helps and stops the issue, but most times it doesn't. I thought maybe it was just a rare defect so I got a replacement controller which seemed to work great for the first two hours... until it started having the same issue. I bought my brother this controller from Best Buy two months or so before I ordered it and his is now starting to have the same issue as well, but worse. While the two controllers I had from amazon only really had trigger buttons issues, his A, B, triggers, and more are malfunctioning. So it's definitely a controller issue. We both take great...
