It’s only $20.00, and it’s great. I’ve posted in a past blog that the Xbox 360 is a godsend to anyone who wants to restart the family traditions of slideshows–the whole family sitting in front of the projector/HDTV and watching family pictures and reminiscing. Well, the Wireless Receiver lets you use any of your 360 wireless gear with your Windows PC.
For me, that means that I can use my 360 Wireless Headset with my Vista PC and Skype. Echoes are a common problem with external speakers and Skype — this is essentially like your cell’s Bluetooth headset, but for Skype.
Plus, the best game controller on the market, the 360’s, is now ready for use with your PC. $20. A good buy, highly recommended.
