Summary: I bought one of these and the button layout is nice and controller fells good but there is one major problem. That problem is the d pad. I have had three of these type of controllers and one every one the d pad breaks off and I am forced to use nothing but the analog sticks.
Summary: Ergonomically it has a solid feel. I had a decent DirectInput experience for a while with the P2500 model (until the D-Pad snapped off) The P2600 offers an L2 and R2 shoulder buttons in addition to the standard L1+R1.

Summary: This and other saitek pads like the p220 and p2500 are fine except the d-pad falls off after a month of usage. I hear that you can call saitek to get a replacement but cant confirm and who wants the hassle of shipping the pad for repair. Avoid unless you desire paying $20 every month.

Summary: I owned one of the first models of this controller over ten years ago. I owned the same computer for seven years and never upgraded so I never bought a new controller. I recently found a downloadable version of the couple of games I used to play on that ancient computer.
