Build quality is very nice, pretty accurate replica of the classic ps2 controller. I was going to rate this a 5/5, however the lack of vibration does ruin the experience to some extent. If you plan on using this controller on pc, I recommend x360ce so you can use the controller for most games.
Solidly built with a good feel, also works well on pc without setup.
For someone who's accustomed to PlayStation controllers, this is exactly what I was looking for. I also own a Logictech F310 gamepad, and this Vilros controller is *profoundly* better in the feel and responsiveness of the buttons. Even my kids, who have never played on the original PlayStation, have remarked that this Vilros controller is better. Well worth the money.
For anyone else who finds this important, I'm using this USB controller on Linux. I've used it with multiple applications, and it works fine through both SDL (libsdl2) and the Linux Kernel joystick driver.
Needed a cheap little controller to play retro games with on my pc. Saw this thing and picked it up. Had no drivers included. I have had so many issues getting this thing
to work right with some games (notably Hollowknight) however Hollowknight is rough when it comes to controller support. Have to use joy2key to remap controls and some of them still dont work. various issues with different games. I took this thing apart and the build quality is relatively good. it is a softer plastic than the OG ps2 controller. And idk if they all came like this but the controller actually has 2 wired up ruble motors inside of it. quite a steal for 11$ imho
