I am late with the review however I purchased this about a month ago. I enjoy first person shooters just like many do. So I am using the controller to play a call of duty game.
The right joystick on the controller is used a lot for striffing during the game. After a week of play the right joystick on the controller gave out, started to get stuck in a position and I heard a pop or crack. It will move but very slowly to the right. If you push it harder to the right it makes a popping or cracking noise and then it will move to the right, however moving to the left is fine.
I used it on other games before playing a first person shooter and it was fine otherwise.
If you are playing a shooter, use the Playstation branded controller or something much more comparable then this controller which I am doing this review for.
With the newest controller I bought ( ps3 controller ) I have no issues and all moves very smoothly and the experience of playing the game is enjoyable again. Also, I didn't abuse the controller in any way nor did I use aggressiveness during game-play. Figured I would add that in in case someone wondered. Sorry for the lengthy review but its my first on here and i wanted to be very, very thorough.

Just recently got this and it's a pretty decent controller overall. Decent button placements though the dpad was a little awkward for me to use but that was easily worked around with. The only beef I had with the controller was the lack of sensitivity on the analog sticks were terrible for shooters. Going to return this for a a $30 controller and hope that one is more manageable than this one.
Rated 3 out of 10 by DJP0N3 Ok but not worth
I bought the controller to replace another old one and I've had it now for about two weeks and the sticks are already loose and the triggers don't register presses.
Rated 1 out of 10 by Astromurp02 Sucks
It literally stopped working the day I bought this item. It fells odd holding the controller and doesn't work well on shooting games. You have to mash down on buttons for them to work. I wouldn't ever buy this for someone else I even brought it back thinking maybe it's just the way it was handled but I soon realized the product was poorly made.

I had this controller for like 2 weeks and it broke. The thumbtack broke and it doesn't even work at all. I hate this controller i regret paying 25 dollars for it
Rated 1 out of 10 by MAC92530 Controller plays on its own.
Controller buttons start to work character without me pressing anything. Purchased 2 and both started to act up after 4 days of use.
Rated 10 out of 10 by gamedude99 great work for the price
Works well on both my ps3 slim and samsung 12.2 android tablet and looks nice great buttons and rumble only gripe is the L1 R1 buttons kinda stink but other than that its just fine those other people must be talking about another controller its just fine for me
Rated 9 out of 10 by sugartastic Inexpensive and works great.
IDK what these other reviewers are talking about. It's a great controller for the money. You save about $30 (enough to get another game!!) and still get the same feel as using a Sony PS3 controller. That's the best part for me. Too often the generic controllers are like trying to play a game while holding a shoebox! The only knock I have is that it is a wired controller but the cable is like 9 ft long. Definitely long enough to sit across the room like I do. Great controller, I'd get another one if I ever needed to.
Rated 4 out of 10 by henshinhero Works well for a bit, not long-run material.
It worked well for about a week or two, then the problems started popping up. The left analog stick would occasionally bug out and stay in one direction. The X button would also stay down most of the time you pressed it and then it started doing this really loud and annoying clicking noise every time I pressed it. The L2 and R2 buttons would also only work if you pressed the outer edges.
