Broke within a year, South Africa. 14 July 2016
Seemed pretty alright, but the right stick got stuck and broke within a year of using it. As in it just points in random directions now and feels loose. Didn't even use it super frequently... Compared to my xbox controller the quality of this just doesn't feel the same, besides the obvious breakage. I've had that for at least 4 years and still works great.

I have this one and the wireless version, and they both work very nicely. With games from the last few years supporting X-input(XBOX controller), this control takes the hassle out of having to configure controls button-by-button yourself, as those games detects it as a Xbox controller. Also has a directinput option, so you can configure it for older games.

Great gamepad for the price.
Albert, South Africa. 4 February 2016
Love how it feels, soft yet. Good buy.

Awesome controller. Works perfectly in windows 7 Installed the driver and switched the controller to ximput mode(basicly emulating xbox cotroller setup). Works in what ever game supports xbox controllers.
Then in Direct imput mode it works perfectly in snes emulater.

Very nice product. Analogue sticks are great, ABXY buttons have good feel, the D-Pad feels a little too high, and you have to press hard to get directional D-Pad to work. Triggers & bumper buttons feel very nice. Body of the controller is made from a nice feeling "grippy" material, and is very nice to hold & play with. Overall, this is an excellent Game Controller for PC games, and Windows detects it as an XBox controller, so it will work with just about every PC game that supports a gamepad controller. It also has a switch on the back to switch between "X" and "D", so it will work for older games too (the ones that only support Direct-Input).

Very comfortable like the xbox360 controller. The D-pad is the only downfall, still usable, preferable for menu use. Good buttons and analog sticks of rigid quality. Vibration and controls are very responsive. I highly recommend it.
John, South Africa. 25 February 2016
Good Value for Money, the D-pad is significantly raised, and almost feels similar to the analog sticks, the build is sturdy and cable is decent in length allowing me to lay back and play comfortably.
Lloyd, South Africa. 2 December 2015
It's a solid and well built control. ABXY, bumpers, trigger buttons and analog sticks are excellent. The D-Pad however, is a bit hard to push down and a bit inaccurate. I mostly use it for FIfa and does the job. Also, it's rubberized which is great and it doesn't make my hands sweat that much (I have VERY sweaty hands). Haven't used the rapid fire and X-D switches, but those are 2 good bonus features. Lost one star at the D-Pad.

Works as expected. Good buy.
Adriaan, South Africa. 28 October 2015
Works like a charm. Needs to be set up before use, but thats rather simple to do.
ryno, South Africa. 17 September 2015
This gamepad performs very well. I play Dirt 3, Need For Speed: Most Wanted 2012, Project Cars with this gamepad and i'm not disappointed. The d-pad does feel a bit loose so this doesn't perform at its best in fighting games. The overall finish is rubberized so it might feel strange at first but once you get use to it you will love it. All my games detect this gamepad as a Xbox controller, which is nice. The overall feel of the controller is great and there is even a rapid fire button.

I was really impressed with this remote. It feels great, is easy to set up, looks great and is cheap.
Friedrich, South Africa. 11 October 2015
This controller feels amazing to hold. Fits perfectly in my hands. Installation was no issue on Windows 10 and so far it works perfectly on all Steam games that has Controller support. Even works with Bluestacks.
Federico, South Africa. 30 April 2015
Good product at a valid price - recommended!
Tyrone, South Africa. 28 September 2015
Great product works straight away no hassles
Donovan Donovan, South Africa. 30 January 2016
I recently bought this controller and I must say I really love this controller, cause my pc sees it as a Xbox controller from the start and I really recommend this. I have been playing for long periods and find that it still feels awesome to hold cause of the soft feel design. That's why I gave it 5 starts. Best controller next to the original Xbox controller.
I really love this comptroller.

Good Budget Gamepad
Jacques, South Africa. 24 August 2017
Good solid Build , and compared to Logitech's F710 this is a good alternative with a good price and no need for battery swaps every now and then. Works well on F1 2016
Clement, South Africa. 27 March 2015
Wow this gamepad is more impressive than I thought. The soft feel of the gamepad is mind blowing. Planning to get the wireless version soon. Thanks Takealot Team.

As if you need another review! Buy it already!!
Ahren, South Africa. 5 September 2017
Excellent quality for the price. Perfectly plug and play, ill have to see how long it lasts but the exterior feels nice. the triggers are slightly weak (like, it pushes in very easily, low spring pushback...gamers will know what I mean).
Great product, South Africa. 26 August 2015
The feel is great, and its very comfortable in hand. It doesn't require additional software and even offers a direct input switch, great product.
Stefan, South Africa. 4 July 2017
Responsive and feels good in the hand.
Luke, South Africa. 23 December 2015
Amazing controller for the price.
Sashen, South Africa. 25 May 2016
Exceeded my expectations in every way! First off, this gamepad has a built-in xinput/dinput switch on the back of it, so you don't need to any third party software to emulate an xbox 360 controller. My games identify this as an xbox controller and all buttons are correctly mapped. The triggers are pressure sensitive which is required for games like Hitman:Absolution. Also tested well on Fahrenheit Remastered, Max Payne 3 , Alan Wake Collectors Edition and Mafia 2. Lost 1 star because of the d-pad:it's not a deal breaker but it doesn't work so well on Mortal Kombat Komplete Edition because it's very easy hit the wrong button eg instead double tapping back key it hits back + up. My advice: this is ideal for games that don't heavily rely on the d-pad.
Christian, South Africa. 26 June 2017
Excellent product for it's price. Exceeded any expectations I had. Great for anyone who wants to play like a console peasant on their pc. #PCMASTERRACE.

Excellent Controller!! Very Satisfied!!
Donovan, South Africa. 6 September 2017
The controller feels really good in hand and the design is reminiscent of the xbox 360 controller however the casing is made of rubber for better grip.
Even though it is wired it has a 1.9m cable making it pretty convenient for most pc gamers.
The controller allows for DirectInput and Xinput and you can change this with a simple switch at the back of the controller, making it compatible with pretty much any game (including emulators).
The build quality is really good, no buttons feel loose or hard to reach.
The D-pad is pretty bad however you will barely use this and it does allow for 8 direction.
My biggest issue however is that the controller sometimes doesn't stop vibrating if it is triggered to do so, the only ways to make it stop once you have this problem, is to either get the controller to vibrate again or to unplug it and put it back in. As you can imagine this can be frustrating however there is a solution. The solution is to put the controller in DirectInput mode and to use x360ce to map the buttons correctly and to disable vibration.
As you can see this controller is brilliant for PC gaming and the price being low makes the deal even sweeter, I would recommend this controller to anyone who doesn't mind their controllers being wired I have not deducted stars for the vibration issue because this issue is not exclusive to this gamepad and it apparently happens even on the official xbox 360 controller (it looks like its mainly a windows 10 issue too), it would have been nice if the controller had some software that it came with to allow you to customize it a bit more but you can just use x360ce if you come across this issue (I mainly encountered it in Fifa 17 but it was also present in dark souls)
