        It isn't that bad.

        By Chicken

        Verified Reviewer

        Pros

        • cheap
        • Doesn't Need Drivers
        • Works Well With Emulators

        Cons

        • No Rumble
        • Not High Quality
        • Overpriced

        Best Uses

        • Emulators
        • Scrounging For Parts

        Comments about Gigaware USB Wired Controller for PC:

        Not the best, but certainly not as bad as everybody thinks. It's cheap, so if you want it for scrounging, it's great.

        Something kinda wonky: on Windows 8, it never seems to finish loading the driver, but it works just fine.

        Overall, not a bad purchase.

        Best Uses

          Comments about Gigaware USB Wired Controller for PC:

          TL;DR version at the bottom.

          --

          I decided to purchase this controller because I was becoming more involved in the MMOs I was playing (the point where keyboard just wasn't cutting it anymore), but not involved enough that I could justify investing in a more expensive model such as one from Logitech right off the bat.

          The one thing I noticed as soon as I took the controller out of the packaging was that it was very lightweight and felt "plasticky." However it was not uncomfortable to hold or use for extended periods of time, but it did feel fragile, hence why I listed "flimsy" as a con.

          My experience with this product has largely been positive. Set-up and testing was straightforward and easy -- I followed the directions on the instruction slip. The controls and analog joysticks functioned properly in-game when used.

          It wasn't until about three months or so after my purchase that I encountered my first issue. One of the buttons (#1 as shown in the image) lost it's bounce or springiness. This wasn't too big of an issue as the input still transmitted. Moreover, button #1 was probably the most used button, so I can see why something like this would happen. About a year after that, my system no longer recognized the controller. I inspected the controller for any sign or wear and tear on the cable, but found none. I also didn't change how I used the controller in the days leading up to its malfunctioning -- plug it in for use, take it out when done. I am disappointed that this product stopped working out of the blue, but after reading the other reviews, perhaps I was lucky to have it last as long as it did (more than 1.5 years).

          As much as I wanted to like and recommend this product, what keeps me from doing so is how it can cease to function all of the sudden. I doubt I will repurchase another to replace this one.

          --

          TL;DR: This is an average but affordable controller for gaming but there is a chance (risk?) that your system will not recognize this controller at one point or another, whether it be right from the get-go or after a few months of use. This controller is really good when it does connect. Purchase at own discretion.

          For reference, I used this controller to play Dynasty Warriors Online and TERA and my OS is Windows 7.

                The D-pad is not so great, trouble playing super mario when running and ducking at the same time
                it just doesn't stop running and it does not duck.

                      This controller has no support from Radio Shack, there are no drivers available and Windows is unable to connect to it using generic usb drivers. Do not purchase at all was looking for a cheap controller until I can replace my OEM ones but I guess you get what you pay for.

                        Doesn't work on any game I have. Farcry 3, Skyrim, Kingdoms of Amalar: Reckoning, nothing. Using Windows 8. This controller was a waste of money since there is no software to set up buttons.
