Great customer service!

Summary: This is a great game pad that is really easy to either install and play or plug 'n' play. The analog sticks did go bad on me in about 3 and a half months which made it hard to use in gameplay, but Timetec has incredible customer service and replaced it. Great experience with Timetec.
Summary: I bought it for the racing games in particular and only hoped that I could mess around in FPS's with it. It works exactly the way I want it to for my racing games and made Star Trek DAC 100% playable.
Pros: This controller makes racing games and certain other games where WASD + Mouse is horrible. (Star Trek DAC is another example) I use it for the Need for Speed series on PC. It makes racing games much more responsive to your every move. Also, the fact that I can customize the controls to fit my spe...
Cons: Square housing around the dual analog controllers gets annoying. I wish they were circular like Playstation controllers. Also, these aren't good for FPS's. I like FPS's in which the left analog is the equivalent of WASD and the right is the equivalent of the mouse. This is how most consoles have ...
Summary: loses one star forthe square shaped analog range of motion
Pros: good button selection matches game system controllers somewhat
Cons: the range of motion for the analog sticks is square shaped. this means if you want to confidently hit the analog stick hard, it will only "lock" in at the 4 corners. It would be better if the shape was that of an octagon instead, like a gamecube controller
Summary: After I bought this, I discovered the existence of Dual Shock 2 and Gamecube to USB converters. They're super cheap and good ol' console controls beat this any day of the week (no matter how good it is). Unfortunately, Newegg doesn't seem to sell them.
Pros: Good, solid construction. Precise. Works great for emulators. Long cord, reaches my couch.
Cons: I saw another reviewer mention this before I bought it, and I was like, "Oh, shut up." But it really is a problem worth mentioning. The analog sticks are set in a square backing. This makes for nice, exact diagonal movements, but makes it almost impossible to go in a straight line. The backing sh...
Summary: There really aren't many choices when it comes to PC gamepads out there, and Logitech is the best bet. I would rate it with 5 stars, but I've gone through one in normal use already, so the design could be a bit more rugged.
