Great gamepad for travel, works nice with emulators and xpadder mapping software on windows xp.

my only gripe is instead of a turbo and clear button on the face of the controller would have been better suited as 2 more usable/ mappable buttons. other than that it's gold, i use it for snes emulation on a netbook and it works great, i just map start and select to the secondary triggers since the turbo and clear face buttons cant be mapped.

I didn't actually need a folding portable game controller, but I did need a portable remote that I can use with my tablet. I own a HP TM2T tablet and it doesn't have any buttons on the screen bezel, or sides, for things like undo, copy, paste, zoom in, etc., which are extremely useful when drawing or sketching. Professional Cintiq tablets have loads of programmable buttons on their screen bezel. So, this pad, along with a helpful program called Xpadder, allowed me to do just that.
I've only used the pad briefly with games. The dpad itself isn't the greatest for fighting games, but it does fine with other games in a pinch. I also wish there were some start and select buttons.
Anyway, I love this product, and it's super portable.

Convenient. That's the go-word for the GOpad. It's small, it's very light, it comes with a 1m retractable USB/mini-USB cord of its own, and... it's pretty durable. The exposed ribbon-cable between the halves of the pad worry me a bit, and the plastic is so light I do worry I might crush it between my mitts, but the buttons are still squishy after a marathon weekend of blue-bomber games and the hinge still works despite several falls and tumbles.

The pad does work. It looks like a cross, but given that my thumb was eclipsing it, I treated it like a big and rounded pad, almost like the Master System's d-pad. This means it's comfy enough so I didn't get blisters, but small enough that I sometimes hit 'down' when I meant to hit 'left'.

There's good spacing on the face buttons, and they're tilted slightly so you can rotate your thumb over all four with ease without snags. They're a good shape so you can mash each one individually without worry about slipping into another, and they've got good spring to register all those presses.

The turbo/clear buttons are a little complex, but they're tied to the controller and will work on any OS (tested on Windows, Linux, Mac, Android): hold the Turbo and then press a button; when you release Turbo, that button now has rapid-fire. Hold Clear then press a button, and when you release Clear, that button will no longer have rapid-fire.

The shoulder buttons are an issue; since the controller is so small, you'll probably barely have the flexability to hit the outer buttons while hitting the inner ones (or hitting the outer ones without hitting the inner ones).

This is a great gamepad for work. I used to work graveyard and get very bored. Pair this up with an emulator and you have hours upon hours of entertainment. The best part is that it folds up into an inconspicuous case that is reminescent of an old school pedometer. The buttons and D pad are great for slower moving RPGs through Tetris, but not all that comfortable for fast paced games (Street Fighter II and beyond). The button spacing is adequate for most SMS and NES sidescrollers, but a little cramped for SNES/Genesis. Works great under Linux

It works. Feelings is not bad for this size. But the design is weird.
You may see the pad has Turbo/Clear buttons. They don't work. It has dual LR shoulder buttons. They work. So I have to assign Select/Start to L1/R2 (or L2/R2). Weird.

Windows detect the pad as "8-button gamepad". This means Turbo/Clear buttons won't work. I tried this pad for android too. Turbo/Clear didn't work as well.

I bought this game pad for use with emulators. I am impressed with how comfortable it is and how well it works. I tested this for use on WinXP, Win7, and Ubuntu. Work great on all of these systems. Awesome controller for SNES and NES emulation.

The buttons worked perfectly on this controller, however it has one major flaw in my mind. Not everyone may hit this flaw but if you are really into a game and get into some tense moments, you may eventually run into it.

The flaw is the hinges aren't reliable for long term use for those of us who hold the controller harder during intense gaming. The hinges lasted a few hours of game play during a megman X/X2/X3 marathon and it only lasted until Megaman X2. Once the hinges come off, that's it, the controller is in 2 pieces and is useless.

I ended up having to buy another USB controller to play roms with.

Pros:
Compact
Reliable Buttons

Cons:
Hinges are a weak point and can break rendering it useless

Works like a dream! It feels a little flimsy, and the buttons are super mushy, but I can plug it into my Nexus 7 (using an OTG cable) and it plays almost all of my games, and all of my emulators, without a hitch. It mounts as a universal HID (fancy talk for how newer Android phones interact with controllers and keyboards and such) and works great. The fold up design of the pad and the retractable cable mean I can toss this in my go bag and I don't have to worry about it breaking or the cable getting tangled up. It's certainly a winner for the price!
