These controllers do work well but I had to take both of mine apart to sand down all the burs from the molding process. These aren't built anywhere near as good as the OEM SNES controllers but they do work and they work well. The buttons have good feedback and these are responsive. I was playing Smash TV, Super R-type, SMB All Stars and Zombies Ate my Neighbors for hours with these. The d-pad is great on these controllers. The A B X Y buttons are good to but they have some slop. The Shoulder buttons also feel good.
Gtron needs to work on quality control more. But other then that these do work well and are better then the NES controllers they make.
Update 3/25/15 So I ordered the Tomee branded controllers since some blogs and youtube reviews said the Tomee branded SNES controllers are well made........Well lets just say that these Gtron controllers absolutely blow the Tomee controllers out of the water in every aspect.
I have nothing good to say about the Tomee brand. They should pull their NES and SNES controllers from the market. Out of the box I was disappointed. The Tomee controllers have a sticker label on the A B X Y buttons. That sticker wasn't centered properly and was coming off. These Gtron controllers have a thick plastic plate almost like the original SNES controllers. The A B X Y buttons are also smaller on the tomee controllers while on the Gtron controllers they are just about the same size as the OEM SNES controllers. The Dpad on the Gtron SNES controllers is great. Its responsive and feels almost like a real SNES controller. The Dpad on the Tomee controllers is larger for some reason which is okay. But it simply doesn't work. Pushing left or right also presses up or down no mater what you do. Thats a deal breaker which means the tomee controllers are useless.
Finally the cord. The cord on the Gtron controllers is long and about the same thickness as the model 2 SNES controllers ( the controllers that came with the SNES Mini) its also very long which is great for my HTPC. The cord on the tomee controllers is very thin and cheap. It seems like it could break easily. Its also very short.
So my final verdict is that these Gtron SNES USB controllers are the way to go if your looking for low priced USB SNES controllers. They work and simply do everything they are supposed to do. I wold recommend them.
