On my search for a PC gamepad I found this one. Seems good for the price - looks more or less the same as the official Microsoft one.



Specifications

PC gamepad similar to the Xbox 360 gamepad design
Rubberised finish for non-slip gaming
All standard features, two analogue ministicks, D-pad, Force Vibration
Digital, analogue and turbo functions
USB connector and long 1.8mtr lead
Description

At last, a quality Xbox 360 style gamepad from Speed Link for PC. The analogue ministicks, D-pad and fire buttons are laid out like the original. The shape with the rubberised finish also gives you great grip in all those tense gaming moments, realistic Force Vibration adds to your experience.

Alternatively you could get one of the MadCatz controllers for £6.99 from Argos which can be used on both PC and a 360 + is a bit cheaper.

Of course, a more expensive generic Chinese controller that can only be used on a PC is better than a licensed 3rd party 360 controller :whistling:.
The MadCatz controller is actually pretty good (I have 1) and the build quality is excellent. Why do you hate MadCatz so much?? :?.

This one from from Play on the other hand, take a look at the reviews. Of the 3 posted one talks about how the buttons are incorrectly mapped and the other talks about how the triggers don't function properly.

my advice is pay the extra few pounds & get the official 360 controller,high quality built & perfect for pc gaming.

Do not buy if using this for PC games, I brought one of these from Play, there is little in the way of support, plus you will spend most of your time trying to programme the controls using eith XPadder or Pinnacle, both of which you will need to buy. Just buy an XBox 360 Controller for Windows, and a Wireless Receiver.

Or... for a tenner, buy the USB receiver for your pc and use an actual 360 pad.

i have the madkatz and the offical pad both good i use the mad katz one more personal pref if you ask me

xpadder can be downloaded free here

softpedia.com/get…tml

thats the 5.3 version. version after that you need to pay for but 5.3 is fine and works i also have pinacle but i use xpadder tbh

My wireless 360 controller is working fine on pc with games that support it. The triggers are treated like axis so they respond to amount pressed properly and works ace with driving games.

I'd say the same, it's a great controller.

Oh, you have got to tell me where to get the receiver for a tenner! Most places I've seen it's closer to £20...

I know it's not authentic but I've bought stuff like that from DX before and it's fine. I seen a real one for 9.99 on google shopping the other day.

Give it a couple of weeks to come though it comes from somewhere the other side of the world usually.

Have two of these, bought a few months ago from Play – they are solid and work fine with all of the games which can map controller keys (all new ones SHIFT, DIRT 2, etc; all Capcom ports, UE-based ports). But since i’ve got those mostly to play with kids – some fiddling required (emulator/custom config) for older/kids games where original Microsoft one would work out of the box. After nth time renaming controllers in DM/modifying registry/recustomising keys – just bought two Xbox controllers for windows.

Recommend the above to save the stress.

If anyone wants them to fiddle – let me know (manuals/boxes/CD – all as new). Half price.

I take it you're talking about some other controller than the one in the deal here, given that Speedlink is a fairly well-known European gaming peripheral manufacturer which (from my experience) generally has very good quality products?!

Good deal! =]

I've ordered from DX many times, had a couple of bad experiences but still use them. The exchange rate currently puts it closer to £12 than £10, but thanks for the reply. I'm in no hurry so I'll keep an eye out for one.

Cheers! :thumbsup:

I'm hesitant to point out precisely what the rep. was given for, as you have clearly missed it :whistling:

Anyone that uses this, can you confirm if the D-pad has good sensitivity and doesn't feel like a rock like some third party ones?

I must be unlucky because mine has broke already, only had it for 10 months and the wire has gone dodgy, it sometimes works if you mess about with the wire but now it has gotten so bad that it just annoys me to try and get it working.
