    "An old school controller model which works not only with your computer but also android devices. It works fun, but I've had the experiencing of using much better, even in the price range. It works, but that's about all I can say about it. "

    "Microsoft 7MN-00001 is a great game controller. This is quite precise, easy to customize and very comfortable. This is a durable controller as my family has put it through tests with drops and spills. I have now bought for myself and both kids."

    "For those people who want an authentic feeling N64 controller for PC emulation. I don't much care for this controller design since there is no easy access to the dpad."

    "Fairly pricey for what it actually does, but this controller is pretty heavy on the customization. Wireless, and stays connected flawlessly even though there's a ton of wireless connections flying back and forth across my house. Decent battery life, and if you have an extra pack you're never out more than a few seconds to swap them if you run low. The nice part is how you can set up the sticks and buttons and stuff to feel exactly how you want. Heavy presses, light touches, whatever. Again, it's not cheap, but if you've got the cash to burn, and are picky when gaming, this controller has some nice features."

    "A very old controller that works for PC gaming, but it's outdated and isn't one of the best controllers out there. It's retro and used for retro games, so it's what you make of it. It's the best retro gaming controller, but not the best overall."

    "I'm a PC gamer, which means I really don't use a controller that often. This controller has a lot of different functions that make it much more useful than your average controller, and it is very reasonably priced for a wireless gamepad. Android functionality means I can use it on my PC or use it on my smartphone to play FPS games on the go."

The most impressive feature on this controller the fact it works with so many different devices. It was also very easy to just pull it out of the box and start using it, very hassle free. I do recommend this controller."
