5.0 out of 5 stars Solid stick with excellent craftsmanship July 20, 2010
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Case in point: The TE Stick round 2 is a very well built stick. As you probably already know, its made with high quality Sanwa parts. I has a decent weight and just about the perfect length to fit in your lap.

Round 2 TE vs. Round 1?

When I bought this stick, I was wondering if there was any difference between the TE round 2 and the TE round 1, but for some reason, I couldn't find any info on this. Sadly, I've never even used a TE round 1, but if you're concerned about build quality and functionality, this stick is almost perfect in that respect. Looking at the pictures of both of these sticks, the button layout/stick proximity to the buttons looks basically the same, as does the shape of the box. I can't confirm that they're exactly alike, but I'd definitely bet money on it.

A note on the compatibility of this stick with PC

This stick works with my PC, as opposed to the several reports that the TE round 1 didn't work with the PC. Now, I'm not guaranteeing that the round 2 is going to work with your PC, but it seems that there's a possibility that the round 2 TE stick might work. I'm running XP Media Center Edition 2005, in case you're wondering. When testing this stick for compatibility with your PC, make absolutely sure that you don't plug it into a USB hub, as it didn't work when I did so. I'm guessing that the reason for this might be that they changed something about the innards of the round 2 to make it compatible with PC, or perhaps its just my own setup.

PROS:
-Stick is pretty meaty, making it not move around very much.
-Made with high quality Sanwa parts
-Good button layout
-Possible PC compatibility (See above!

These sticks stand with the very best arcade controles you can buy from a brick and motor store. Second only to Hori's premium model arcade controllers. Comes with top of the line japanese sanwa parts (buttons and joystick). Very good stick.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't Let the Mad Catz Name Scare You Off May 20, 2011

Chances are, as a gamer, you know someone personally that has had a bad experience with Mad Catz. I'm not going to lie, to this day I will never buy a Mad Catz product and actually use it (they're usually good to padhack for making specialized controllers though). But this isn't some low budget junk that costs a ton because it's got Capcom and Street Fighter logos on it. This is one of the best arcade sticks you can buy for the money.

The buttons, including Start and Select, and the joystick are made by Sanwa, using the exact same parts that go in SSF4AE cabinets. It's sturdy. It doesn't slip around. It's comfortable in your lap.

I totally wore out my original Tekken 6 Hori stick between MvC3 and SSF4 in about 2 months of regular usage, maybe 10 hours a week total at the time - now it almost never registers down-left, kind of important for playing chargers - so honestly, if you intend to seriously play fighters with an arcade stick, this (or any Mad Catz TE - just keep in mind the BlazBlue and MvC2 TEs have a slightly different button mapping) is the one to get in my opinion. Just make sure that you're actually serious enough about learning to play on a stick before you spend this money, but they retain their value well if you need to resell it later on, and the parts will last quite a while. If you do manage to kill a button or the joystick, you can buy replacements easily online. I prefer Lizard Lick Amusements but there are other reputable companies as well, and you may even have a local arcade with a few you could buy (not likely since most US arcades use Happ hardware, but you never know).

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth it for sure June 28, 2010
By JunPW
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I got this arcade stick to improve my gaming experience with SSTF4 and other fighting games. So far all I can say is the only thing keeping me back from doing just that is my level of skill at the moment. I love the stick, it's great, does exactly what it says it's going to do. The only thing is some of you may not be used to playing on a square gate, it's easy to replace, just check [...] for a GT-Y Octagonal Restrictor Plate. Other than that I Love the graphics and layout of it. It really gave me that arcade feel. I gave it a rating of 4 because I only have it for few weeks so am waiting to see how it stands up to the abuse and test of time.

Advantages:
1. Very stable, stick doesn't go flying all over the place.
2. Very visually pleasing, great graphics, just a bit dark.
3. Very responsive play.
4. Minor mods was simple, changed my square gate and bubble top to a bat top.
5. Seaming-less response times between action presses and on screen display.

Disadvantages:
1. Joystick shaft is just a might short and the bubble top kinda made my shoulder hurt with extended play.
2. The compartment for the usb cable is kind of cramped.
3. Modding is kind of a hassle because of the amount of screws and this is minor mods am talking about.

So if you're looking to raise you level and got the cash. I highly recommend this product.
