I've seen lots of people complaining that this adapter doesn't work for Windows 7. Thats only half true. Out of the box, this device will not work with Windows 7, but it can be configured to function perfectly. I'll explain: The problem Windows 7 users are having is the controllers aren't being recognized and/or the adapter isn't being recognized. In most cases, this is because of compatibility issues; after all, Windows 7 did not yet exist and therefore drivers could not be written for it. The drivers included in the package with this adapter were written for older iterations of Windows. With that it mind, its up to you to find a driver that will enable your OLDER device to work with your NEWER operating system. I used a driver called EMS USB2 (google it). Download, unzip, install, done. Open your control panel, and check out the Printers and Devices area. Your adapter should now be recognized. From there, simply plug in your controller, right click on the gamepad icon, select "game controller settings," and check to be sure that the controller is being recognized.

Everyone, please remember that if the device isn't working, the issue can ONLY be a driver in this case (unless the product is defective, which is unlikely due to its simplicity.)

I was ready to give up on this thing myself because it wasn't working with my laptop, but with some diligence I found the above driver. There are probably others out there as well. Just give it a try before bashing a product that works perfectly.

My main gripe is the cheap/tacky look of the product overall. But hey, I only paid $4 for the thing. Whether or not the adapter will last remains to be seen.

Now I know a lot of people buy these type of devices for different reasons, and my reason being one that I had never actually heard of. I have been playing Final Fantasy XI Online for quite a few years now, but when I started playing I played via the Playstation 2 so I learned how to play the game via a controller.

Now once my PS2 died after I had bought a new computer I decided to make the jump from playing on the PS2 to playing on the PC.. however I still wanted to play with a controller. Well after several usb pretend PS2 controllers I finally made this purchase and i have not had one regret.

I'm running vista and it works without a flaw, and I finally have a D-pad and analog sticks that won't let me down. If you're a fellow Final Fantasy XI player and looking to use a controller on your PC this tool + PS2 controller is the way to go!

Beware, if you buy a used Super Dual box adapter or from other merchants, you may or may not receive it but rather you'll receive the Dilong pu203 version which looks exactly like it. Take note that the Super Dual Box has a red LED (although the old ones don't have any at all) and the Dilong has a blue LED. The Dilong doesn't have a dance pad code, so it won't work with StepMania. So take that in mind when looking for the drivers in google. Other than that, it's a great adapter, it works perfectly. The only reason you would need to download the drivers would be for vibration but if you don't need it, you can just go ahead and plug it to your usb and it will install as a human interface device.

The device basically works, but the experience is sub-par.

Many people don't know that the DualShock PS2 buttons are pressure sensitive, which means they sense how hard they are being pressed. This adapter converts that range into a binary "yes/no" press to work better with computers. Unfortunately, it sets the threshold for this very high, probably at the maximum pressure the button reads. This means that if you don't fully depress the button, it doesn't trigger at all, and in order to trigger the button you have to do more than just press it, you have to SMASH it. This takes time, and the effect is to introduce enough latency in the button presses to make games noticeably more difficult to control. Trying to play a Mario game is like playing to play it drunk.

Clearly this isn't bothering a lot of people, but if this sounds like it might bother you, I'd save your cash.

(Looking at the USB events, it appears to be the hardware itself emitting button events only for hard presses; a software fix on the computer does not appear to be possible. Switching the digital/analog mode does not help.)

I've had this for around 5 months and it has lasted well. No problems under Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7 or even Windows 7 64 bit. Make sure you are choosing the correct controller of the two in the control panel when you test it. Works with games that natively support joy pad input and if they don't you can use Joy2Key to map buttons and joy sticks/D pad to keyboard keys (even multiple keys) Look it up, great little cross platform program.
It shows up under Linux as Input: Twin USB Joystick after I installed a few packages. With some Google searching you Linux geeks should be able to get it figured out if you want to use this thing on there. I couldn't find a joystick configuring program with a GUI.
Good product I hope it keeps working and at this price you can't go wrong.

EDIT 9/5/12

Sometimes it disconnects so I have to move it around, the cable has slowly worn out on the inside. Currently it's sitting on top of my case near the top ports, not moving much, but I did used to use it with a laptop so it got a lot more wear during that time period.

Fixing it is simple for those of you who can solder, you just need a spare USB cable and who doesn't have like ten cables they don't really need lying around? I have to find the time for this along with several other pending projects.. I didn't expect it to last a life time for the price but I haven't yet had a problem with the controller ports or functionality when it IS connected, it's just the attached cable that's of low quality. I would still recommend it, as it's the cheapest option if you already have a PlayStation controller or a cheap source for one, and those things are built to take a beating. Of course I care for my things a little more than some people I know, not rage quitting and all, so they've lasted me all these years even being a hand-me-down.
