You can map it to keystrokes with the software supplied on the driver CD, it's easy to set up, very well packaged and solid, designed with a lot of care and attention and the fan feature, instead of being a novel extra is a really nice sensation when you've been mashing for a while.

There is one downside to this product and that is the D-pad which is overly sensitive, (you have to push left or right really accurately in the center or it'll register as diagonally up or down) and a real thumb grinder. I had a blister after 10 minutes of Street Fighter and had to instead transfer the load to the tip of my thumb. It's a shame really, I chose this product because it didn't have one of those circular D-pads which is prone to snapping but this one is a bit too harsh.

After reading several reviews, I opted for the Airflo and must say it's excellent. I didn't need to install the CD, Windows 7 recognised the controller and installed the appropriate drivers and away we go.

The built in fan is a neat trick, but mostly not required.

A must have item.

The controller is quite large but very comfortable. My seven year old daughter can use it with ease and finds the airflo fan great fun. The buttons are programmable and set out nicely.I think in summer the fan will come into its own and keep your hands nice and cool it is a bit noisy on full setting though.All my games that accept pads have recognised it and thats over 30 so far.I was so impressed I bought 3 of them as I have three systems.
For the money I dont think you could get a better controller highly recommended.

Full credit to the seller, the product arrived promptly, much earlier than expected.
No credit to the manufacturer, I should have read more of the reviews before I purchased.
The 'hat' controller cannot do up or down without adding a left or right press unless you are very careful, which is impossible when playing any game. In my opinion this makes the product unuseable.

Rapid delivery, well packaged. The controller was bought to use with Flight Simulator X on Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit. It was recognised straight away and hey presto! it worked a treat. The software for mapping the keys for other programs was slightly less straight forward. It has to be installed as if it was for XP SP2 but other than that there were no problems. The controller is comfortable in the hands and the fan, though rarely used, does come in handy occasionally. I would certainly recommend this product.

Really Fun Controller for those who sweat a lot how ever its not the most supported controller in the world and its not the most comfortable as to put the fan inside the controller they had to make it really big and heavy.

A decent controller.

It's comfy to use and the rubber grip type things are, well...grippy and rubbery, it's nice. The analogue sticks also have a snazzy spiderweb pattern which I believe really enhances the character of the controller. The buttons are exactly the same as a PS2 controller, so maybe not great for XBOX fans.

The controller is the ideal weight and has an overall impression of quality. Similarly, the software that comes with it is intuitive and easy to use. It allows you to map the controller to certain buttons on the keyboard. This means that you can use the gamepad on games like Resident Evil which don't directly support controllers. Of course, you can always turn this feature off so you don't have to type with buttons on the controller when using normal programmes!

A downside of the Airflo is the slightly tacky appearance. It reminds me of an action figure from Toyz R Us..But there you go. I bought it because it was the only controller I could find in silver, black wouldn't have gone with my elegant silver PC setup you see. The Airflo also has a fan system. This is a bit of a gimmick; I don't use it alot.Basically,there's a dirty great fan on the bottom of the controller. You can have it set to high, low or off. It sounds like a hairdryer and makes your hands feel dry and crispy if you leave it on high. It's quite irritating. I sometimes use it on low if my hands are sweating so it does have its uses, I suppose.

The controller would benefit from some kind of force feedback, hardly any decent PC controllers seem to have this...

Overall, this is a great peice of kit for games like Need For Speed Most Wanted, it feels so much better than driving with the keyboard. The price is just right, and the build quality is good, gimmicky fan but good novelty value,looks a bit naff unless you're into Kinder egg toys.

Good one. The driver utility is also excellent. It allows you to map gamepad keys to keyboard keys if a particular game does not support gamepad config. I did this for using the POV Hat(buttons on the cross) on the game 'Wrestlemania Arcade' DOS emulated inside DOSBox on Vista.

The fan is a comfortable aid once your hands starts sweating. But don't recommend keeping it on all the time.
