Yup I have one myself. I got mine from radioshack, worked absolutely perfectly for the first 5 months, then ddr pads stopped working properly and the second controller became unresponsive during 25% of the button presses. A windows reinstall didn't fix it so its obviously a hardware issue. It supported even the rumble feature and 2 controllers simutaniously. It came with software as you obviously need drivers for it.
Be careful not all are quality make. Some have difficulty working with ddr mats, some although equipt to handle 2 controllers only work properly with one. Some stop working after a certain period. Its what you get for buying cheap chinese made products from small companies you've never heard of before.
There are reviews scattered around the web of some models. I suggest you do a google search for that particular one and find out how others have faired with it.
Wow thats awesome to hear that they work. I plan on using it not only for PCSX2 but also my original playstation emus. How exactly does it work with the emu though, will I just have to put the drivers on my pc? Is there anything I would have to do in terms of plugins on the emulator itself?
Once you get the drivers for it (hopefully it comes with a dvd/cd driver disk) you install them and windows recognises the device as a regular usb gamepad. Then you calibrate the gamepad in your control panel. After that you just go to the pcsx2 controller plugin configuration and set the buttons as you normally would. I suggest using Lilypad as it is the most configurable and has lots of nice features.
Alright sounds good to me. Most of the devices seem to be priced around the same so its just a matter of finding the one best reviewed. I'll have to do a bit of searching around.
That was my only thought about getting one, I'm running on a vista 64-bit laptop so I'm not sure.
