Summary: A not-so cheap piece of crap. It kind of amazes me that this is the lowest end of PC controllers and its like $25 bucks. I bought one and within a few months the buttons broke and the thumbpad was sticking and it lost calibration with the pc off and on before just crapping out altogether. Lacking any common sense (I am cheap I guess) I bought a used one from a local game shop who promised it was tested and working.
Summary: I bought this controller a while ago when I bought Halo 2 for the PC. It worked great.
After that game was over and done with it sat unused until I decided to buy Cabela's Dangerous Hunts for the PC. It worked great until a few weeks ago. The left analog stick began to "stick" in certain positions. Now, it just refuses to work.
This is great for your occasional PC gamer, but if you intend to use it for long periods of time then I'd suggest buying something else.
Summary: I bought this elsewhere as I was in need of a pad for my PC. I thought the PS2 controller look was pretty good, and the price was ok. Well, after a few months of Fifa 2004 and Grand Theft Auto III and Vice City, the left thumbstick grip on top wore down and then it started to lose its connection.
Everything is well until the left analog starts to act weird

Summary: Just like what everybody is saying, but it doesn't seem that severe to me though. Played NFS: Underground and Prince of Persia with it, when you constantly move the analog button, you won't feel any difference. It is only when you let go off the button and suddenly your guy started to walk by itself! Pity pity, it could be the perfect gamepad out there that resembles PlayStation gamepad...
Summary: The directional pad simply sucks. I've only had it for a day, and despite the overally comfort and setup ease of this controller, the directional pad is another one of those "nearly impossible to just hold up without going diagonal as well" pads. You push up, and 95% of the time you will either be going up+right or up+left, and ditto for all other directions, down, left or right....
Summary: Wow, I see a running theme here. I firt bought the controller a couple of months ago. After a couple of weeks the left analog controller went out. It wouldn't respond at all. I took it back and got a new controller thinking the one I had originally was just defective. A couple of weeks later it went bad too. The controller is great when it works. But the sad thing is that it doesn't work for very long. Worthless. I thought Logitech made good stuff too.
Summary: On the plus side: The controller is very comfortable, the button layout is familiar and versatile, and the analog control is very good... at first. On the down side: The directional pad tends to go diagonally if not pressed exactly right, and the analog sticks wear out very quickly, becoming jittery and losing chunks of their field of movement sporadically during use. Also, the profiler software kills the use of my other gamepad when it is booted up.
