Pretty good, but... – Dual-Shock USB Wired PC Game Joypad Controller - Black Reviews

Pros:
Unit is attractive, sturdy, and feels good in the hands. All buttons and controls functional. Long cable makes it comfortable to use.
Cons:
Unit is a little small. Dynamic range on the analog controls is limited, there's about 15% dead space at the outside of each axis. Left shoulder button needs to be pressed with determination in order to use.
Other:
While not a game-breaker, device doesn't seem to have DirectInput support (like real MS XBox controller), which is needed for a few games out there.
Bottomline:
If you just need a gamepad, this is definitely good for the price. If you are looking for precision analog controls, keep looking.
