Which 3rd party receiver(s) are you guys using? Thanks.
in reality I think all wireless receivers are 3rd party unless you get a controller with it. I don't think microsoft officially sells them without the controller. Regardless, I think I got this one from meritline: http://www.meritline.com/wireless...74950.aspx
I got it several years ago, so I can't remember if this is the one, but it looks the same
quick edit: I just checked my order history and that is indeed the correct one. I've had no problems with it in the couple years I've had it.

I want a 360 controller for my pc, but if I need to get a receiver and this thing needs batteries, I think Ill wait for a wired controller deal.
If you can find a charge 'n play cable/kit (what charges a battery pack while it's still in a controller), you can attach it to a wireless controller for now, and plug the cable into the PC. Just leave the 2 AA's out of the battery compartment and snap it in place. Done deal, and if you want to go wireless in the future, you've already got the wireless controller.
I think the wireless is well worth it when you have an Xbox 360 as well (you just need to re-sync them to swap back and forth), or multiple PCs (easy to sync them to whichever you want to use), or want to have multiple controllers connected to the same PC (easier to sync 2-4 wireless controllers than having to deal with plugging in cables and having enough usb ports open).
Oh, fair enough. I don't know if they fixed it, or if it's like the Xbox red ring of death where it's a widespread issue that still only effects a minority of users. I've had two from '08 and '10 plugged in and running 24/7 for 4 and 2 years respectively with no problem.
