Plugging in controllers after the adapter has been connected is a little flaky; sometimes it seems to cause both controllers to not work. However, the solution was to just pull out/plug back in the USB adapter. I chalk it up to the Pi board though
Also, just to confirm, because this wasn't clear from the pictures: these adapters actually have TWO SNES controller ports on them, so they will support two players at a time. (I actually ended up purchasing two more than I needed...oh well!)
These adapters present the SNES controllers to Windows as sixteen buttons (eight per controller), a D-pad, and a hat switch, so they are totally plug-and-play, no drivers required on Windows 7 or 8. Once it's detected, all you need to do is fire up your emulator and configure both controllers and they work perfectly. With the Raspberry Pi, make sure to use a powered USB hub (this is normal for many devices) and just follow the instructions with your distro. I used Retropie and was able to get it working with very little fuss.
It's perfect for playing old SNES games on the PC. I was getting extremely frustrated with my Xbox 360 controller while playing the higher levels of Tetris Attack because things just weren't responding like they used to. Now I feel like when the blocks don't move right it's my fault and not the controller.
I will update this review after setting up my raspberry pi with retropie installed, but here's the basic takeaway: if you are hoping to dig up your old SNES controllers and expect it to work right off the bat, you may be in for hit-or-miss results. If you're working with reproduction controllers, you should be just fine. I definitely recommend this product for the convenience of having two controllers in one USB port, and the possibility of being able to use original equipment is a major bonus!
