Summary: I first got these to play my Nintendo and SNES games in emulation software on my laptop that runs Windows Vista. The plug and play simplicity of these controllers was great and they worked wonderfully. When I tried to use them on my Windows 7 desktop, however, the computer wouldn't recognize the devices. But, fear not, it turns out that if you go to Microsoft.com there is a Logitech driver available for free download and the controllers work fine once again.
Summary: Pros: Plug and Play, low cost, very comfortable and very responsive. Cons: No turbo button. I purchased this to play some old school games and it performs very well after a month of consistent use. No problems with the set up or configuration, just plug and play.
Summary: I got this controller so I could properly play games on my ePSXe Emulator. After trying it out, I noticed the direction pad (left side) did not work as I would like it to. Too often when I try to move in a single direction, I hit another directional button, which can be frustrating. This seems to be because the directional pad, instead of having the 4 directions separate, has them linked together in that circular piece that moves as you press any of the directions.
Summary: I bought two of these pad and they work great for most pc games and emulators. The control are responsive and they last too. After a while though when presented with games that offer gamepad control I started to regret not buying one with joysticks. IF you don't have money for the more expensive one and think you can do without the joy sticks go for it. After all, this is a great deal!
Summary: I am only begining with PC Games and needed something to get me started. I didn't look for anything too fancy, since I have no inmediate need for this. Playing with the keyboard proved to be very frustrating in the best of cases. This gamepad solved all my needs at an increadibly reasonable price. Sturdy, well finished and nice looking.
Summary: I was looking for a simple controller to play NES emulator games on my PC. I had one that I purchased a while ago, and I bought 3 more so that I could play multiplayer games with my friends. The controllers work great. Some emulators have a problem distinguishing between devices if more than one controller is plugged into a usb port. Amazon offered the best combination of price and shipping cost. Thanks Amazon!
Summary: It works fine. I just wish that Logitech was even slightly more helpful, but in spite of them and after a some searching I found the shareware "USB Overdrive" that allows me to program every button for almost every game. ( I don't work for this developer!
