Buttons too close

Summary: Buttons are laid out terribly. The pause button right on top of the No#3 button. If you are use to any of the PS controllers, X-Box controllers. DO NOT BUY THIS. Way too hard to get use to the new button config.
Summary: the good: works pretty good ... the software makes it fairly easy to program all the controls for each game. you can adjust the sensitivity of the joysticks which is very good. It helps you move faster in games. solid product/usable buttons/solid software the bad: the joysticks are not so easy to program though....
Summary: Pros: D pad, buttons and stick all works very well. Nice responses. D pad feels great. Digital button switchs D-Pad and left analogue stick instantly. cons: Blue light - looks good, but it distracts me from gaming Trigger button too soft and large - I often click on left trigger button by mistake. Not enough buttons to simulate PS2 controller - which buttons should I use as start and select buttons? buttons for the right thumb are a bit cluttered.
Summary: I purchased this game pad due to good reviews. Found it online for $15 with free shipping so had to try myself. Its true its built well and pretty comfortable in the hand. The programming software is alright as well, not as nice as the Nostromo n50/52 software for example. But what i didnt like about it was much more relavant. Firstly there is a toggle lock shift button.
Summary: I have had this controller for just about two years and have had no technical issues with it at all. I never installed any software for it, I simply plugged it in and it has worked flawlessly ever since. It may lack the frills of a more expensive controller, but I am very pleased with its toughness.
Summary: I installed this controller on winXP. While I was playing an emulated game I noticed that my keyboard didn't work and there was no way to exit out of the game (alt+enter) to minimize the screen. So i reset the computer and now the keyboard doesn't work at all, must be something to do with that installation CD.
Summary: I nearly bought a Logitech gamepad but saw the glowing reviews of this device. I just got started back into the action and racing genres It's got great touch and seems sturdy enough for the long haul.
