4 out of 5 eggsFloating D-Pad for the console gamers

Pros: The floating d-pad is 3x better than the PS3 d-pad allowing for more consistent QCF and Dragon-Punch motion. Shape fits comfortably in hand and the buttons are of acceptable quality. People with a short thumb may have some issue with the far right buttons but the buttons are still evenly spaced for maximum accessibility (although I prefer the buttons to be a little bigger since I use my fingers instead). Rubber grip on the side is a nice touch along with the standard turbo feature of any aftermarket controller.

Overall, the Fightpad is a good buy if you're looking for a d-pad based controller for your fighting game needs.

Cons: Requires 2x AA batteries.

Wireless maybe a pro to some users but a huge con for me. MadCatz should have made the fightpad rechargeable like the PS3 controller or cut the price to $29.99 and kept it wired. Having to replace batteries is a hassle and the wireless feature is unsettling if you plan to use it competitively. Also, the fightpad requires its own USB receiver so if you misplace yours on accident, you're out of luck.

Other Thoughts: IMO, the Fightpad is not worth the MSRP but newegg's low price makes the controller a decent buy.

For younger gamers who grew up on the (d-pad) console, the fightpad makes for a good substitution if you want a decent fighting game controller. But if you're serious about fighting games, I recommend passing on the fightpad and buying a joystick. The marginally priced Madcatz SE SF4 fight stick is a good buy for just a little bit more and will do the job like the bigger and more expensive TE stick.

5 out of 5 eggsSignificantly better than standard, far less aggravating

Pros: The setup is perfect for anyone who has played any of the SF games. Even the hard to pull ultras and supers can be nailed after a bit of practice in the training room.

Cons: Battery powered, although the batteries last a long time. I played for a month with no power issues.

Other Thoughts: lots of people prefer joysticks, but this is a nice alternative for people (like me) who grew up on the console versions.
