From the Manufacturer
SideWinder Game Pad Pro is the latest evolution of gamepad design, color, and functionality. In addition to the classic SideWinder gamepad functionality of six buttons and two triggers, the SideWinder Game Pad Pro has revolutionized the control provided with a dual precision D-pad, which features proportional and digital control. The Digital control, similar to the SideWinder Game Pad, is unbeatable for sports and fighting games that require the fastest response. Proportional control is perfect for racing games and advanced, next-generation sports games.

I remember now why I never used this controller, though. I really don't like the directional pad. It's very mushy and so doesn't feel precise. Also the rotation of the directional pad on the controller isn't straight up and down. So to push up, you really have to push up+slightly right, if you see what I mean. For this reason it's easy to end up crouching down when you're really trying to run to the left. Hope you see what I'm trying to say. I'm sure I'll get used to it after a while. Or if I don't, I'll invest in an Xbox 360 connector.
All in all though, if you find one of these at a garage sale or cheap on Amazon and you really need a controller, this is a decent buy. It's even got trigger buttons. Only one directional/analog though.
After the first month or so of use, i began to be irritated by the small bevels of plastic on the under side below the triggers and on the d-pad. After an hour or so of play, the raised bevel begans to create a small indentation in your fingers - not cool. I finally broke down one day and whipped out my pocket knife and carved them off. I polished it down a bit to a smooth finish and the controller was better than ever.
After four or five months of use however, i began to notice a very un-cool feature. At times the d-pad will randomly stick or not response. There is nothing more frustrating that fighting your way all the way to level 6 only to find that mario gets stuck on the left part of the screen because the d-pad is being stupid again. Wondering if mine was defective, i began to check around my friends. I wasn't the only one. At this point, 6 or 7 months later, my Gamepad sits with the cord wrapped around it on the shelf. It annoys me too much. It usually works, but those times that it doesn't you want to slam it into the floor. My recommendation is to look for a different, non-microsoft controller. Just my pref.
