Didn't know this was hard to find. A couple of months ago, I was considering pulling the trigger on one from Amazon Warehouse Deals for a few weeks, but ultimately decided it was still too expensive. But it was in stock that whole time.

Microsoft's got pretty awful QC for their Xbox Elite controllers, I wouldn't recommend buying one.
They claim it's only effecting a small portion of users, but that doesn't seem to be the case. 🤷‍♂️

Issue was with the first version of the Elite. I have the Elite 2 and it has been very solid. I'm using it to play on the Xbox Series X, PC and PS5.

Wait what on PS5? How does that work and why?

With the other systems though, I would love to do that but found re-pairing the controller every time was annoying. Is there a workaround you use? Plug it in

Ya, even on sale it's too rich for my blood.
A couple friends have had these, (or at least the first version) and mentioned that; i): they weren't really worth it, as far as features and ii): they failed (stick drift) sooner than expected.

Also, considering this is a premium product, one would think Microsoft would honour a one year warranty instead of 90 days like a regular controller. 90 days doesn't instil much confidence in me.

They've retroactively extended the warranty to a year.

I'm using a Brook Xone SE adapter to play with ps4/ps5. As of now, like all other third party controllers, it only recognizes it as a PS4 controller so it won't work with PS5 games. Hopefully they can release an update to make it work with PS5 games soon. However, as of now, most of the games I play on the PS5 are P4 games.

For PC, I use a USB cable to remove Bluetooth lag. It makes it a lot better. I do have to pair it again on the Xbox Series X but that's just a few seconds so it doesn't bother me.

Interesting. Guess they haven't learned. You'd think some of that $10 million they initially spent developing this thing would have been on assuring QC.

As an aside, I went through six standard controllers in two years when the first Xbox One came out. I actually complained on the Microsoft /Xbox forum, and a guy from Microsoft called me. He said they wanted to collect my last two controllers for analysis, and ship me two replacements. I was actually shocked that they did this.

Can confirm some serious QC issues with the controllers. My series 1 has been retired after about 2 years of use due to control stick drift issues. My series 2 is now suffering from a sticky button issue. I love the feel of these controllers, but they are not worth the price due to the QC issues.

Wow, I did not know something like that existed.. I may have to get one of those later for when I pick up a PS5.

That’s neat, thanks for sharing! Maybe I’ll do that. I hesitate to use the Elite for PC because I was thinking plugging in cable would mess up the pairing with the Xbox. Seems I should give it a shot!

I was loving my Series 1, except I couldn't use the paddles as they kept pressing accidentally.

I was planning to eventually get the Series 2 but I love the stock Series X/S controller.

Ugh. Would never get a SCUF ever again. Have the SCUF Vantage 2 for the PS4 and talk about drifting. The paddle also broke and couldn't find any replacement as it seems they silently discontinued the model. Good thing I was able to print one out with my 3D printer.

I also have the Astro C40 and that has a lot of issues with drifting also. I don't use those two controllers anymore. I only use the Elite 2 now.
