Summary: I bought it 12/8/10 and it finally wore out 1/8/14. The D-pad would stick every time I had to move right. I used this exclusively for sports games , so that "sticking" rendered it useless. I used it almost everyday , so I can't complain.
Summary: My biggest pre-purchase concern over this product was with the wireless signal. After using this everyday for a week, I have had no problems with signal strength or any sort of lag/delay in commands. My second biggest concern was with legacy game support.
Summary: I bought this controller back in 2005 and am still using them on a daily basis with my HTPC. They have been used in a number of situations from gaming on a PC with emulators, being used as a remote for my HTPC, and surviving a number of moves.
Cons: Movement of analog sticks is limited by a square enclosure so if you try to spin it around then you're pushing along the circumference of a square... can't make smooth movements as easily. Messin up my geometry wars...
Pros: Works well with NBA 2k11 on my PC. Wifi, been using it constantly for a couple months and have still not had the need to change the battery.
Cons: I hate that games on the PC are setup so they configure with an XBOX controller, being used to a PS3 I decided to go with this. Not really a controller con, but people should know that it will take a little extra time to setup the controller so it works well.
Pros: very happy with this, out of the box worked perfectly, plug and play on 7, but installed the drivers just incase, installed no problem, happy with the vibration, made playing racing games much better on my pc, good range, i can put the receiver just about anywhere and it receives good signal, eve...
