Works with Vista! – PS2 Game Controller to PC USB Converter Reviews

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

Pros:
The biggest pro is that it works with the 32bit Windows Vista. If your a Vista user you know how difficult it is to find stuff that is compatible. Worked with my old ps1 controllers.
Cons:
No numbering of first and second controller. On my setup the first controller is the one on the left when the box is facing up. The leds on the inside are hard to see in regular daylight.
Other:
I was able use this with ExtraMame. I installed the drivers that came with this because I couldn't get this to work without the drivers like the other reviewers.
In the ExtraMame configuration menu pressing Triangle once will allow you to reset each individual button. Press triangle once then hold down if you want the triangle button to be one of your options. I suggest it be the last button you configure.
Bottomline:
Cheap alternative to buying a dedicated controller, and I found a use for my seldom used ps1 controllers.
