The analog stick buttons on my controller are tight and don't fire unless pressed with a reasonable amount of force, so it's possible that the sensitivity issue is only on some controllers. The only real issue I noticed is that when in analogue mode, some programs have issues detecting diagonal presses on the Dpad because they map as a separate buttons (Hat UR,UL,DR,DL). Most programs are good at detecting this, but I've found a few that don't, and you'll have to turn off the analogue feature if you want to use the Dpad to move around diagonally (or you'll have to use the analogue stick).
For the price you're probably not going to find a better controller. It's an exact replica of the Playstation dual shock controller (same shell) with the only difference being that the dpad is 4 separate buttons. Additionally almost all the "face" buttons protrude about 50% further than the PS dual shock, so if you're used to the dual shock you may notice that the buttons on the Dekcell are a bit less comfortable.
UPDATE: The Dekcell pad is still functional after 18 months of moderate use (about 3 hour a week on average, with spikes upwards of 30).Read more ›
So i ordered another one because they are so cheap. It lasted about 2 months playing Jets n Guns. The left analog stick stopped returning to center.
Ultimately they are cheap as hell so I'd consider it basically a disposable Joypad.
It does not feel cheap (to me, a PC gamer, not a console player) but the D-Pad buttons are connected together (pressing one cause the others to move as well.) For my product, the "2" button does not respond if I press it lightly (for a casual gamer this is an annoyance, for a hardcore one, this does not matter). The buttons also protrude a bit more than ones I've seen on a PlayStation 2 controller (personally, I do not mind.) The Analog button is a good addition but I feel as though it isn't needed (who needs a gamepad without the joysticks?)
I could not have the gamepad vibrate, even at games where it is supposed to (the drivers possibly do not work or I do not have them enabled is the question.)
Overall, I love this product even though it does have some faults (and the suppliers obviously do not care for having a protective packaging for their product.) The gamepad has its merits but also its faults. This product is good for the price but those with deep pockets should look elsewhere.

This is a great PC controller if you are on a really tight budget. If your budget isn't so tight, get the Microsoft Xbox 360 Wireless Controller for PC.Published on January 20, 2011 by B. Barton

The price is quite possibly the best thing about this gamepad. Why are they so expensive, anyway?
