As much as I think Game Pass is a great deal and In-Home Streaming works pretty well if you've got your network done up proper, Cloud Gaming with Game Pass has been among the weakest in performance for me versus PlayStation Now, GeForce Now and Stadia (haven't tried Amazon).

That said, home networks have a lot to do with the quality still and while my network may work well for local streaming, that doesn't make it perfect for remote. I'd always recommend people try before they buy wherever possible.

Too bad it doesn't come with remapper software. The bluetooth is a bit iffy. On my Razer Jungle Cats, there's weird presses sometimes. Annoyingly, I had to make my own mount for it for my LG V60 with dual screen because Razer didn't really think through their design

Good for Android games, but when you're streaming you now have to add to the usual latency, additional latency from Bluetooth.
Bluetooth controllers are never good for streaming.

The Razer Kishi and GameSir X2 comparisons are strange, considering those are 2 of the only 3 wired options on the market, and this is a wireless product.

I would also not say $80 vs $50 is a "comparable" price.
