    "This controller is above average. That is above average while it is working. It tends to stop working. Also, it is not a tough as is claimed. It is no tougher than regular controllers."

    "This is a pretty good gaming pad. It isn't perfect but i think it fits the bill pretty nicely. Good build quality and customizable buttons make this a fun pad to use. I can dominate my local FPS Lan parties and walk home a champ. "

    "This gamepad is extremely comfortable to hold. It fits nicely in my hands and I can play for hours without any issues. I also like that its compatible with not only my PC but gaming consoles as well. The only downside is that I wish the cord that came with it was longer."

    "This controller is kind of unique in that is wraps around your phone so that it has the traditional controls on the side, screen in the middle look instead of a separate controller from the screen. Reminds me of the Vita in terms of form factor."

    "I liked the controller my nephew had for his PC. So I bought one for myself. This is not the same at all. It is the same brand. It's just the newer model. But it does not respond as well. I am disappointed."

    "This is a great old style remote that you can use on your PC. It has decent reviews but not the absolute best. Further, as an avid gamer I know I would find this difficult to game with. When I look for a gamepad, it is usually one that looks something like a slightly smaller keyboard. I would keep looking for a better gamepad in this case. "
