5 out of 5 eggsGreat little game pad!

Pros: Great for low to mid range gaming.

Cons: This game pad is not for the serious gamer. The D-Pad is unpredictable at times. You press up and it goes to the side. Once you get use to it, it's not a problem.

Other Thoughts: I would recommend this to anyone that is not an extreme gamer.

2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: small, stores cable inside.

Cons: major design flaws on the arrow keys: the plastic piece (inside, holding the piece that makes the contact with the circuit) is BADLY DESIGNED and held only at two corners ASYMMETRICALLY. As a result it's difficult to press UP or DOWN key without also pressing LEFT or RIGHT key. For me, this is a show stopper, since it is impossible to play anything but the simplest puzzle games with this.

In my opinion, this is a design flaw and this problem will appear very with every single unit (of course, you may be able to press on the arrow keys more carefully than I can).

Other Thoughts: This is just as good as one of those "gamepads" (slash-remote/phone) on international flights. And those aren't very good and really worn out, from years of use and abuse.

4 out of 5 eggsSomething Interesting.

Pros: - Simple layout
- Cord storage (you can store away
USB connection and wire with in
controller.

Cons: - Size (Atleast for people with big
hands/fingers)

Other Thoughts: Well, ordered this small little gem and received it just today, plugged it in and worked like a charm. It's a small, basic controller that suits the needs for most games. The controller feels well built. Turbo and Clear buttons glow red while plugged in. Only downfall is the size. It's meant to be small though. People with bigger hands/fingers might hit more than one button at a time. Other than that, it's a diamond in the rough.
