The items I received worked exactly as expected, no problem hooking them, and way less lag then dealing with the wireless controllers I received with an AT games sega genesis retro console I purchased on EBAY (the console itself is great, its just the controllers are wonky). I switched to regular wired controllers, which worked fine, but not enough length, so these cables were the perfect compromise. Sometimes lower tech is better. Also received on time, and packaged well, so I have no complaints. Will use these guys again if the opportunity arises.
