My friend bought one of these, the A and B buttons start to stick after heavy usage, and the controller feels even stranger in your hands than the normal controller in my opinion. Not too bad, but it's still disappointing compared to the classic controller.

Joystick feels quite good, but the buttons don't really have the same "click" as your used to. I'm not sure about the slow/turbo buttons, or the "clear" one. Not sure what that button's even for, ??? I didn't use any of those three when we were messing around.

Sorry I can't give you more detail, but it's pretty cheap so if it fails it might be useful to swap joystick compartments, or be used as a paperweight. :)
Thanks, that helps a lot.

How about these pads?

I've already got 4 Hori Mini pads, but the stick on these look like the official stick, so maybe they're rubbish?

I won this on ebay.

I remember seeing these in the Official Nintendo Magazine in the UK, and they said they were awesome. Always wanted to try it out, and found one on ebay the other day by accident. :D 99p :D

It cost 99p, so even if it's a pile of crap, it's barely a loss.

In later issues of the magazine, they gave it 5 stars along with the official pad from what I can remember.

in that overview almost every pad is told to be good :blink: maybe no longtime tests with the analog stick? ^^
I think in later issues when they rated things out of 5, they rated this with 5 stars, with only the official pad getting the same rating. I could be wrong though, and my memory is playing tricks on me. Like I've said though, 99p is almost no risk.

Got it today, and I have to say, it's pretty good! The pad I got isn't in great cosmetic condition though, as it has scratches. I'm cleaning it up right now, and I'm gonna keep it.

Took a look inside of the pad I got, and the stick is almost identical to the official pad's. This pad has been used a lot, and the stick is still in great condition. The main difference is though, this was grased inside. It must be all about the lack of grase inside of the official pads when it comes to the degradation of the sticks.
