    "This controller has a premium feel as it is ultra comfortable in the hands and you can tell the materials are top of the line. I have had this controller for 6 months and it is still going strong."

    "This gamepad is not from a brand I have heard of, and it appears to be a knockoff of the popular Xbox 360 controller. The quality does not seem to be very good, and there are very few user reviews to tell me if this is a decent product. The price is also too high compared to other high quality options. I would likely avoid this."

    "If you are looking for the best gamepads for PC, you should consider the Razer RZ06-02250100-R3U1. It is an awesome gamepad that is suited for both PCs and Xbox One in case you would like to use it for your console. It has chroma lighting which I really enjoy and is very durable for gaming. "

    "A gamepad I've found that really works well on my laptop is ZD ZD-V108-B. It's a wired controller in that classic old style of the playstation. Why try to improve perfection? It works really well, is very responsive, and compatible with Windows XP on up. "

    "The ZD T Gamepad is a nice gamepad that works best with your PC but can function on your PS3 as well. I cannot really recommend it for PS3 since it is basically a wired X Box Controller so it isn't designed to work as well with PS3 as it would be with PC. Also it is wired so playing a wired controller on a PS3 feels weird since they come stock with wireless controllers. Definitely solid for PC but I would not use it for consoles at all."

    "This is a classic NES gamepad with a USB adapter. It is good nostalgic throwback that will remind some people of their childhood. However, it does not have the comfort of modern controllers."

    "This controller didn't seem to work with my PC. I believe it might be a driver issue, but it still wasn't compatible as advertised. It also felt poorly constructed. I was able to get it working with a mobile device, but that's not what I wanted it for."
