I'm giving this a four star due to the directions that came with the controller. Whomever wrote this left out a very significant step for getting the x box and the controller to recognize each other. First, turn on your x box. Second, push the on button on the controller. Third, go over to the x box and push the recognition button just under the white casing. The x box on button will start blinking. On the controller, push the recognition button with the same symbol as the x box. Hold it for three seconds and the control button will go into overdrive on the flashing. When the x box and the controller lights stop blinking and remain on, the controller and the x box are now ready to rock and role. I almost sent this back the next morning due to the instructions, but got it out and tried it one more time, using the procedure written above, and it worked. Do keep in mind it's only the color of the plastic that's different from the controller issued with the x box, unless you use it for Windows 10.
