Controllers are still holding strong, even after playing many games of Ken Griffey Jr. Baseball and then getting angry and hitting my cheater of a boyfriend...Anyhow, I use them a couple times a week, and I am not super gentle with anything, let alone gaming paraphernalia, so I would say that these are pretty good quality. I will still keep you informed on their status in the future so you don't end up with a dud.
There are two things, right on the box, which are important.
First? USB. Your favorite general-use standard cable. No need for boxy adaptors or messy custom wiring.
Second? Plug and play! Your favorite kind of device! No searching for drivers, no installation of drivers, no maintenance of drivers.
In the box are 2 things -- a plastic frame that holds the controller, and the controller itself. No messy un-boxing, no extra papers, none of that. Everything except the controller is toss-able and forgettable.
The controller is lighter than I remember SNES controllers being (though I think the size is the same). The plastic is smoother. It feels pretty solid. I think I could snap this thing in half between the SELECT and START buttons if I really wanted to -- but I'm certainly not going to do it accidentally.
The D-Pad, and each and every button is much higher than the SNES was, if I recall correctly. Also, the X & Y buttons on the original controllers had a depressed dome -- by which I mean, the tops curved down --, and the A & B buttons curved the other way. Again, if I recall correctly. The four buttons on the Retrolink controller are all flat.
It has no turbo functions or buttons.
In actual use, with SNES9X over the course of the day, I found that the controller performs solidly, if not perfectly. The START button in particular is slightly finicky. The response time, however, is great.
I noticed no issues during gameplay of several SNES classics.
All together, very functional controller. Could benefit from heavier construction and mimicking original button design details like height and top curvatures a little better.
I'll give it 9 stars out of 10.
If that were the case, I don't remember my SNES ever controlling this poorly.
The pad features 10 buttons, 2 of which are unused. The 4 face buttons are nothing to complain about; they're responsive and they're in the right places at least. The shoulder buttons are ready to give out after only a day's worth of use, starting with the R button. They have a rubbery give to them, as if there's a membrane beneath, and are stiffer than the stock SNES pad. They would be passable, I suppose, but they're going to go at any second. The start and select buttons are soft rubber, and otherwise nothing to complain about.
The d-pad, however, is the main problem with this thing. Simply put, hitting down-left or down-right are a crapshoot, with either left or right usually winning out, if hitting a diagonal even registers as either down or left/right on the pad at all. If that isn't bad enough, the down direction on the d-pad is beginning to give up, requiring harder and harder presses to register.
The buttons themselves are inoffensive, though ready to fail, and the d-pad is terrible and only getting worse. There are far better ways to relive your early 90s memories. Far, far better ways.
