does response seem somehow more reactive than it already does with a wireless controller?

It does, after years of using a wireless controller I borrowed a wired controller from a friend and noticed a difference right away. The reason for this is because since a wired controller is wired directly into the Xbox, there is absolutely zero latency between your action on the controller and the action on the screen. A wired controller has a slight delay. The difference is not big, but you'll notice it if you've used a wireless controller for a long time.

They have faster response times than wireless.

The average human does not have the ability to perceive any difference between the two, if there is even a difference to begin with. The difference between the two in latency is not that significant. Truly, the only real advantage to a wired controller is that you won't have the batteries run out during play.

^ That.

But the difference is so minor that it won't matter. Unless you're playing in a large tournament for a prize, where people have the reaction speeds of a damn greek god.

The difference only matters for PC games where you need to make a series of extremely fast and accurate clicks. And even then it's iffy. Certainly in a game like Halo, the difference is negligible, and probably unnoticable altogether

When I use wireless controllers, I get a pretty significant delay. Could just be a synchronization problem between my console and TV, though.

the response time is negligible unless you have some sort of interference with your wireless transmission while using a wireless controller

the only reason wired controllers are preferred at competitive events is for consistency because wireless transmissions can be disrupted

Tube TV v.s. an HD tv is a way more noticeable difference IMO.

When you can make a tv with the instant feedback of a tube tv with the graphics of an HD tv, I will give you all the money.
