So far so good

M Laks, Amazon

  • Summary: I got this for my kids who play video games from time to time on our home pc. I thought it would be easier for them then using the keyboard keys. All I did was plug it into the back of the pc & it worked right away without any type of extra set up.

  • Summary: A lot of PC gamers would be very thankful for this joypad. PROS: Smooth operation, great response. CONS: Some slowness on some MAME games, and some floatiness on others.

meh

Kyle Delmar "uncle chopper", Amazon

  • Summary: I got this controller to play old school 8-bit system emulators. It works fine, but after the first 5 minutes of use the 3 button began sticking and started becoming stuck down. It doesn't seem to affect game playing, but it makes the controller feel weird. It's kind of slippery and bulky.

A low budget controller

Huajun Zhou "Mind Reader", Amazon
11 January 2010
  • Summary: I play some racing game very occasionally. My old gamepad needs a game port but my new computer does not have it. So I figured that maybe I need a basic gamepad. For the price, the gamepad is a good buy. Overal build quality is good with typical plastical feel.

First Day Malfunctions Not Acceptable

M. Kim, Amazon
17 October 2009
  • Summary: NEGATIVES: Well, this controller is cheap in price. I got what I paid for. Only used for one day and the R2 button can no longer be pressed it is permanently locked down. It was working fine at first, until it suddenly stopped working without explanation.

Good for price

Michael Lebron "Graven the White", Amazon
19 September 2009
  • Summary: I bought this planning to prepare my new computer for games. For the price it's a decent pick. The buttons are nice and there's enough of a USB cord to move around. My only complain is that not all games are configured to it and some of the ones that are keep telling me about a ninth button, which...

Great simple controller for an even greater price

Jose Marval, Amazon
26 May 2009
  • Summary: This is a SIMPLE controller that WORKS flawlessly. I've used this for years, playing Fifa 07, Fifa 08, Madden, Prince of Persia series, and many more. Never failed to me. And just needed to plug in to be instantly recognized and ready to use.

Nicely constructed controller, and not too expensive.

John Prothero, Amazon
5 May 2009
  • Summary: I use this controller for Windows XP which locates and installs the driver right away. There doesn't seem to be much need for calibrating it that I've noticed, but to get the most out of this controller I recommend a free program called "Xpadder" which will allow you to assign keyboard functions to...

Almost perfect for emulators!

Lenard McLean "Tech Geek", Amazon
19 March 2009
  • Summary: It's no secret that this gamepad does NOT really look anything like the controllers used for the old consoles, (NES, SNES, etc.) That said - this is a GREAT, affordable game controller for the classics. This controller feels quite solid even though it is SUPER-light weight.
