Great little pad, may be too small for some.

Summary: I have large hands so my hands cramp with extended use. Other than that, awesome pad for travel, comes with a nice case and a retractable usb cord which has decent length. I use it for zses on my laptop and it works as advertised. Minimal setup.
Summary: Wow... I was looking for a controller for a laptop... I wanted to have an easy to carry and use controller... This fit the bill but not perfect. PROs: -small & compact... -has all the buttons you need to play SNES -plug and play (I have Win7 and no need for configuration) -the connector uses a mini-USB port so if you loose the cable it's generic enough to be replaced. -Nice compact case and retractable USB cable. -$15...
Summary: I bought this controller cause I wanted something small that I could keep with my netbook in my bad in case I got bored travelling or in class. This controller does jsut that! the psp-type control stick is excellent for control, and all the buttons work well. the only thing i don't like is that i have huge hands and fingers so even though this is incredibly convenient, my hands don't fit it very well.
Summary: very nice pad i like it so much is soo tiny and very portable and yet,big enough for easy use. When i travel i dont have to carry my other gamepads that occupy much space in my computer suitcase.
Summary: I've been looking for a small portable gamepad for a while, and this is the first one that actually fits the bill. Perfect for some SNES gaming, though my complaint would be that it needs start and select buttons either in place of the Turbo and Clear buttons, or in addition to them. Otherwise, works just fine. If you have complaints about it being too small, then don't get it, because it is minuscule...seriously.
Summary: Bought this to carry around with my compact laptop to play emulators and such with... and have to say I am very impressed. Yes, the joystick does spin in place, and the fold open lock isn't super firm, but neither of those make it any harder to use for me. The device is totally plug and play, and is super easy to configure in any emulator or game you want to use it for.
Great for portability, but needs some improvements.

Summary: This little gamepad folds up and comes with a retractable usb cable. Together, they're about the size of a cell phone so you can put them in your pocket or a bag. Great for gaming on a laptop; no bulge in your bag from a huge regular controller. There are three main problems. 1. The hinges don't lock when you open it. I was accidentally folding the joystick up every few seconds. 2. The gamepad sacrifices the center "start/select" buttons for a "turbo" and "clear" button.
Summary: works ok with puzzle quest, thats it so far. has a thin cord and heavy reel. with some games no controller is good enough, so keep that in mind. doesnt seem to matter the time period of the game, but simpler is better for use the case is a great way to keep it and packaging is excellent.
Summary: Cute, but device manager kept throwing it into unknowm devices even after installing the drivers Tried it on Windows 7, Windows Vista, and Windows XP - same issue It is very lightweight and feels cheap, I am sure that if I had gotten one that was not broken I would have used it for portability purposes... since it was so cheap I have not bothered with a return.
