Third party seller but has a good amount of reviews so probably trustworthy

As often as Elite controllers are defective (anecdotally, not sure if any numbers were ever put out there), I personally wouldn't touch a "refurbished" one.  I barely trust these things out of the box new.  That said, fantastic controller when there's nothing wrong with it.  If you take the plunge, make sure you really test it out.  If anything feels a little funny, return it.

That is an amazing price. Based on the reviews it’s very hit or miss if you get a good one or trash. I guess you can always return a bad one right?

I’ve has my refurbished elite for going on 3 years, still works.
The battery packs from MS have been garbage though, switched to rechargeable AA’s with no problems.

Tempting... refurbs typically go through more trsting than new ones, and personally, if mine was defective, I would buy a new one and take the refurb right back.

Refurbed by manufacturer - yeah. "Refurbed" by whatever third-party seller is making the claim.. no guarantees whatsoever.

I use an elite as my daily driver from the $50 Target sale and haven't had issues fwiw

I'm using a Power A pack, it's been good so far

I got one one these last month from the same seller for the same price. Controller came complete and looked untouched was missing batteries and original box.

Lol just got mine and right out of the box bad stick drift on the right stick. Really a shame to because it came in the original box, looked brand new, had all the accessories - I was really excited to use this.
