5.0 out of 5 stars For All the Old School Games January 5, 2006
If you played the original SNES system, you will love this item. It works perfectly fine with my emulator, which is Snes9x. Using the old controller brings back great memories. The adapter is very sturdy and does not get hot. I personally did not have any problems with using my save and load hotkeys on my keyboard.

The only thing I might complain about is the cord is a little short. It is no problem for any one who is playing games on their main computer. If you like to hook up you computer with the big TV though, then you might have to skoot up the couch a little bit. Other than that, everything is great.

I highly suggest you buy this if you want the old fashion feel.

3.0 out of 5 stars It worked, but it had a technical issue. September 10, 2009
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
This very easily could have been a bad unit, I'm unsure, and unless someone else post results I will remain unsure.

The A,B,X,Y,L,R, Start and Select buttons worked perfectly, and it did read the cross pad, just not properly. Instead of registering the cross pad as buttons, it actually registered as a Joystick, not necessarily a problem in and of itself. The problem came in the fact that the right and down buttons were always active. A controller at rest on the X or Y axis regitered 1, left and up registered 0, and actually pushing right or down registered a 3. Traditionally rest should have been 0, left or up should be -1 and right or down should be 1 on the respective axis. As a result this item is unusable on both ZSNES and SNES9x on which I have tried to use it.

I concede that I may have gotten a bad one, in which case it's just bad QC. I got mine in a manner that's nonreturnable, so I'm going to open mine up and see if there's any resistors or POTs I can adjust. This is something I as a tech might be able to do, though unlikely based on most modern manufacturing practices, but something the public at large should not have to deal with.

Additional Edit added after original post.

I've played with this a bit more on other operating systems. It worked great with Linux. The above listed screwed up button pressed values are still there, but operating systems other than OS X seem to deal with it better (well - I still haven't tried Windows). I'm increasing the star rating, but since the X/Y axis readings are still outside the expected norm I'm only increasing it a little.

I currently use a Wireless Logitech PS2 control on my Mac using a Gamecube PS2 XBOX Controller to PC USB Adapter 3in1.

This adapter and the SNES controller arrived super fast after I ordered them. It works great with Snes9x on my mac. Unfortunately, my friends play with it more than I do.

4.0 out of 5 stars USB adapter January 11, 2007
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This is a great product. It works very well on my computer and was easy to install...just plug it in! It is nice because I have an snes emulator on my computer so I can use a regular controller to play those games. I would recomend this product to anyone who likes playing video games on their computer

1.0 out of 5 stars Smartjoy SNES Adapter... not so Joyful April 19, 2012
Verified Purchase
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
Hi there
For those who are reading this review and considering buying the SNES Smartjoy adapter, I was in your shoes about 3 weeks ago. I read alot of bad reviews and some good reviews. I decided to take the risk and just buy this thing. As soon as I hooked it up to my MacBook Pro and launched the emulator, Snes9x, I loaded a rom and immediately noticed that in gameplay, the Down function on the D pad was stuck in that position. Also some of the other buttons would trigger other buttons. I went to calibrate the controller in Snes9x and when the window opened, I could see that even in the software display of the Snes controller, the stuck down function on D pad was showing up on that too. SO.... unless I'm missing a critical step in getting this controller to be compatible with my setup, this was pretty much a useless purchase for me. The Smartjoy adapter hasn't made it to the garbage can yet but I'm sure it will eventually unless I can figure out a way to fix it... but I don't think I'll be able to... my 2cents; just get a cheap usb controller and enjoy your roms without the old school feel of the SNES controller.

4.0 out of 5 stars Play your Roms with the pad they were meant for. October 31, 2005
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Before Lik-Sang tanked, this was one of their most beloved products. With this USB adapter you could convert almost any SNES gamepad into an HID input device. If you really want to play your old SNES and NES roms the way they were meant to be played, this is the thing to get. Unfortunately so far, this type of adapter only comes in the Single Player version (too bad they never made a dual port version, eh?). Keyboard mapping can be done easily through a Freeware program called Joy2Key, so if for some reason the Emu you use doesn't take input directly from the gamepad you can still map the buttons to letters or numbers on the keyboard.

I reeeally wish they had made
a "2 PLAYER" version of this.

1.0 out of 5 stars garbage May 24, 2011
Verified Purchase
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
First of all the adapter is made of cheap thin plastic and is easily damaged. i tried using the thing one time and the connection indicator light on it is already broken. but more importantly it doesn't work. it automatically sends signal from the d-pad down and right buttons. at first i thought it may have been my controllers so i picked up two brand new official nintendo controllers. still had the same problem. im going to try another adapter because i personally like the feel of having an original NES controller but at this point id suggest anything other then this product.
