First thing is first, if you have a classic arcade jones, or maybe you are like me, and plan on building a MAME machine someday when you don't live on a third floor apartment, just pick up this stick. It's a quality product and is rock solid. That said, I have a few words of advice to impart.

As soon as you place your order or pick it up at your local Fry's, go to Home Depot and buy some rubber mesh shelving liner and a moderate size roll of 3M double sided tape. While the stick is rugged, heavy, and just oozes quality construction, it's way more mobile than I'd like when it's sitting on a smooth surface like a coffee table. I popped the hard rubber screw covers off, screwed the screws in all the way and applied small squares of double sided tape over the screws. Then I applied the tape the short length of the base and a few generous strips between the screw points along the length of the base, in addition to a few generous strips in the middle to help insure the stability. I then applied the shelving relatively taught to the bottom surface. While the stick could weigh a few more pounds for those 2 player sessions, it really isn't necessary after you apply the shelving to the bottom. On my wood coffee table, the stick now stays put wereas before, it would slide all around when I was the only person playing. It was much worse with two people. An adventurous person might look at securing weights within the confines of the joystick cabinet as an added bonus to immobility.

This is a great product for those unwilling to invest triple its price, but still wanting to replicate the arcade experience. Given that pretty much any 300 dollar Netbook running XP can run Mame, this thing = instant-arcade, complete with easily programmable buttons via a PS/2-connected Keyboard and 4 memory locations for key assignments.

Many of the complaints directed at this product are those directed at its PS2 adapter. While this may have been a problem with older revisions of the adapter hardware, I can say, without a doubt, that it has been adressed. The PS2 adaptor is how it always was--you plug the serial-male into the serial-female in the back of the X-arcade, then connect the 2 PS-style controller inputs at the front to the PS2. If you want to use a PS3, 2 incredibly high-quality PS3 -> PS2/PS2 mem-card adapters are included, which plug into the PS3's USB ports and can be set via the PS menu easily.

I set up my PC, using assorted programs (Joy2Mouse to convert the PS3 signal to a PC-friendly mouse-button click), to test the lag using all assorted adapters. All adapters tested had a delay of less than 7 milliseconds, which is about half the time a frame spends onscreen in a 60fps game. Check this link: [...]which inspired me to do the above test (and basically lays out exactly how to do it including program names) The feedback is realtime given the new equipment.

The button layout is the only thing I'm not huge on--that and, upon original shipment, my 2p joystick "stuck" when the Right direction was toggled. It was easily fixed upon adjusting the throw (which is easily done by unscrewing all 4 feet, complete with intuitively layed-out innards, labels, and quick-disconnects for modding fun.

This was my first hardware for an arcade gaming cabinet. I can go ahead and play games while I am building it. The construction is superb. As good as arcade games way back when. Makes Mame games much more fun. My whole family is digging it. This is a super value. No regret at all.

The stick as it comes is fine if you only intend to use it on PC, but if you want to use it on multiple consoles it quickly becomes inconvenient. You have to purchase separate adapters for the consoles from the manufacturer and if you are a collector like me this adds up to more than the stick cost after a while. I ended up taking out the stock controller board and replacing it with a multi console board that supports legacy and newer systems out of the box w/o the need for adapters.

Just got mine today and it is like living in a dream. Feels just like the old arcade joystick and buttons. It is made very well and comes with a cable for your pc as well as a few games for the pc.

I got the X-Box adapter and after seeing how well it works on the PC and X-Box, I plan to purchase the adaptor for my Gamecube as well.

If you are looking for a great way to play those Mame Roms or old arcade classics, this is a must have.

Best purchase ive made in a long time! Brings me right back to the arcade days which is all I knew growing up. Only game system I owned was a Nintendo. Once I was old enough to go out it was arcade everyday I could go. In conjunction with MAME I have been able to finally relive those glory days of gaming at home. MAME has always had a place in my home with a Gamepad Pro or whatever controller I had at the time but nothing can come close to an actual arcade stick and buttons for pulling off the perfect hadouken! Solidly built and heavy as hell you can tell it was built with quality in mind. I f I had to do it again though I wouldve spent the little bit extra for the Tankstick as it has trackball and as Ive come to find out later they are very expensive to buy a good one and don't necessarily work with trackball games. but if you only want fighting games and the like, then this is plenty good. I find that I can play 99% of the games I want to without it but I do miss Simpsons Bowling.
