Summary: there are not many PC controllers out there so this is about all you can get in a pad controller for PC these days. This will do the job but do not expect to be blown away. The last controller I had was so much better but one of the buttons went bad and had to replace it.
Pros: Cheap price, feels good in your hands, configurable buttons
Cons: the left thumb controller is a little too close to the pad controller, a pain for those with larger hands, the thumb controllers are a little too "loose" and tough to use for games that need a "firmer" or more precision control like fighting games, you have to have either the pad active or the th...
Summary: I'd recommend it to someone looking for a simple gamepad for their PC.
Pros: It works well, hasn't broken yet after a year of use.
Cons: The openings around the thumbsticks are squared so that it's difficult to make a straight up, down, left, or right (UDLR) without the stick wanting to slide towards a diagonal corner. Cutting those UDLR angles in with a handheld rotary tool fixed it but it would have been nice for such a thing to...
Summary: It works great for about 2 years of moderate gaming, assuming that you use the d-pad instead of the analog sticks. I don't know what it is about Logitech products and dying after 1.5 - 2 years but this is no exception.
Pros: -Comfortable D-pad, you won't hurt your thumb like on, say, a SNES gamepad. -Comfortable grip -Easy to use
Cons: -D-Pad wears out quickly -Analog sticks have a square base, so you can't move in a circular motion. This is a huge step back from even the n64 controller. Do not buy this if you want to be able to use analog sticks.
Summary: At it's price, this is an ok device. However, the a fore mentioned hardware limitation makes it so this controller is not practical for modern games that require the use of the analog sticks as well as the D-pad.
Pros: It's inexpensive. Does not require additional drivers in windows. Layout resembles the PlayStation controller, which is probably the best layout on a gamepad.
Cons: The D-pad, like with nearly all PC gamepads, is junk. In games that require it's use for commands aside from movement (I.E. Resident Evil 5) the D-pad never worked for me. I think this is a limitation of the hardware. In other words, I think it can only use the Analog sticks OR the D-pad, not bot...
Summary: I've had a Logitech WingMan gamepad for years and it still works as long as it's kept clean. So I don't know if I just got unlucky with my Dual Action pad or this is a common problem with this item, but I know Logitech can make quality products, so I was a little surprised.
Pros: Comfortable controller, especially if you grew up with a playstation controller in your hands. A fair price for a game controller and decent amount of buttons. I've owned many Logitech products and they generally make quality input devices.
Cons: Mine lasted maybe 5 or 6 months. It seemed that one of the wires in the cable was drawing too much power, burnt right through the insulation and caused a short. Kind of disappointing. Like I said, I've always liked Logitech, but I'd be hesitant to buy this particular product again.
Summary: one of the middle buttons turns on a red light, I never in the four years I had this thing found out what the light means. I just sold it to my friend for 10 bucks
Pros: nice, good priced controller for somone who plays simple games on computer
Cons: lack of triggers, which means you can't control your speed when driving in games like Need For Speed and Grand Theft Auto. not enough buttons for some of my games, I used this controller to play San Andreas
Summary: Not as good as the real thing in several key areas, but as long as you don't intend on using the d-pad (guess we should be used to this by now), it's fairly serviceable. I don't install gamepad software since, in my experience, it's usually flaky.
Pros: An imitation of the best gamepad ever made in many people's opinions. Mine has lasted a relatively long time (nearly as long as my first PS2).
Cons: Yet another useless d-pad. Since '99, I've owned controllers from Microsoft, Interact, Saitek and Logitech, and the D-pads on all of them were, more-or-less, ROUND. Why even bother including them? Also, most of the surface on the back is flat, which is probably why many folks have issues with the...
