Price - performance gamepad – USB Gamepad Controller for PC (160CM-Cable) Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
The build quality of this gamepad is quite good, it feels quite like an original PS gamepad and it is also lighter. Cable is long enough to connect it to back of the PC and still have some free movement.
Cons:
Included drivers did work on Windows 7 x64 but dual shock didn't, so I had to search for them (search for: USB network joystick). The mushrooms in analog mode are not perfectly linear, they have some dead space near neutral position. I've tried to recalibrate it many times, but the result was always the same, so it's not software problem. The vibration of dual shock is not the same, mine has on left side less stronger vibration than right, also the motor speeds are different.
Other:
I got used to it very fast, I have other controllers, and difference is in small details.
Bottomline:
This is probably what I would recommend to anyone who is getting into the world of game-padding.
