Not for mac
18 November 2011
Summary: I bought this to game on my mac. It says it is compatible with mac however the little disc they send with it cannot be inserted into the mac. And I could not find, after days of searching, any downloadable version of the software online. It says it works with mac but you need the software in order to use it and there are no options for mac users to get the software.
Summary: The product description and many of the reviews said this game pad is Mac compatible, so I ordered it to use with my 28" iMac (running Mac OS 10.6.7). For starters, the packaging says "PC" on the front. On the back of the packaging, it says it is Mac compatible with Mac OS 9, Mac OS X v10 or later. My iMac, however, will not read the minidisc installation CD. I push in the CD, it gets stuck halfway.
Summary: I'm not a game-expert. What I want is just agile-response buttons. I got this item in late Sep. I played with it around 15 hours per week for two weeks. During Oct, I was busy with study and I almost didn't use it at all. Today, I found Key2 was non-responsive! I was very angry. I did no damage to it and the problem must lay in the quality! We should be compensated for this poor gamepad!
Summary: My bf (who worked at a Gamestop) bought me one of these pads on his discount. We went to his place and tried it out on his computer. It started out looking like a decent replacement for my Saitek, it had the "Key-Mapping" menu and very customizable. But I spent a good hour trying to make a profile for it to fit my SNES emulator. After getting that done I finally tried it out with a game I knew had diagonal in it: Secret of Mana.
Summary: Read the other reviews and you'll notice a trend. My controller lasted about one month before the right analog stick got uncallibrated. It makes my one game, MVP Baseball 2005, pointless since my players just dive around the field all day long. What's sad is that this problem has been occurring in these controllers for over 3 years and they still keep on selling them. (Too bad I didn't read the reviews first.) Knowingly selling a defective product should be illegal.
Summary: This gamepad lasted for about 2 days then the left analog stick had "calibration problems" in which i couldn't move down or to the left at all unless i replugged it into my usb port. That worked for a couple of minutes until the caibration problems came back. After searching the net i found that other users have experienced this.
Summary: I bought this pad and it only lasted about an hour!!! I tried calibrating it and it still didnt work. the only thing that broke was the analog sticks which is the most important part. whatever you do DONT BY THIS GAMEPAD because it will come back to haunt you and horrify you with its BAADDDNESS!!!
Summary: I'm a child of the 80s. In a fit of nostalgia, I downloaded emulators for the NES, SNES, and Genesis. I use an employer-provided laptop for all of my personal computing needs; I've never needed to get my own PC. Because of that, I'm stuck with USB controllers; the laptop has no gaming port. I was looking for a gamepad that would help me recapture that high-school gaming experience.
