4.0 out of 5 stars well built and functional for the price, 9 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Pros: price - build quality - accessories - battery
Cons: software - jiggly shoulder buttons

I bought this pad for games that i already knew were controller-enabled. The vast majority of emulators (personally i use an NES one) have options for mapping every button to it, I say that because the software included does not have any touch mapping or emulation options.

The pad comes with a case, a mini USB to full size USB adapter (to charge the unit) and a very nice tablet/phone stand. Together with the exceptional build quality of the pad (very surprised with that) it makes this quite a good deal. There are no other pads in this price range with this build quality and accessories.

The controls feel very reactive and i have not experienced any latency. The triggers are very handy for driving games (used as accelerator and brake) and the D-pad excellent for emulators. The only slight let down are the two shoulder buttons which felt a bit jiggly, even though fully functional. Battery life is really good and you will almost definitely run out of juice on your tablet/phone before going flat on the pad.

To summarize this is a great pad for the money, especially aimed at driving, open world / arcade games and emulators

5.0 out of 5 stars very good worker, 18 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I got this Celeron for a home server build. It runs cool and quiet with the stock cooler and it supports the energy saving functions (clock down automatically when not in use). The unit in itself definitely has enough horsepower for home use and probably even for gaming. Of course it would not be as good as a quad core for things like music-making or graphics rendering, but most users will find it very satisfying.

Pros: excellent price/performance ratio, sheer processing power, energy efficiency and quiet operation
Cons: not overclockable (not that you would...), not ideal for multi-core (2+) designed applications (usually only professional apps)

All in all, a great buy, thanks

5.0 out of 5 stars brilliant dining set, 18 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
received the chairs in two days, very quick delivery. chairs feel very sturdy and they absolutely look the part. the frame is solid and the upholstering is very well made: it goes fantastic with my oak table.

I would definitely recommend these to anybody that is looking for the stylish look without spending a fortune. A similar set in any other actual stores I have been would have costed me almost twice as much!

Great buy

5.0 out of 5 stars very good performances, not the easiest to fit, 10 Mar. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have had this cooler for almost 6 months now and I am really impressed with it's performances: it cools my 2500k @ 4.5ghz to less than 25c in idle and 40c under load. Very quite too.
I admit it was a bit tricky to install as the brackets are quite large and the screws not the best but, after all, most people will install these devices once every 2-3 years so no big deal.

As a summary I would say this is the cheapest way to have a liquid cooled CPU, without all the hassle of fitting, measuring, cutting, screwing etc...
I would highly recommend it

PS: great delivery from AMAZON, as usual

5.0 out of 5 stars just what i needed, 11 Sept. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great building quality and sturdiness: very light in your hand but with powerful force feedback. The analog triggers and joysticks are very precise and reactive and the d-pad is not bad at all ( I still prefere the PS one). A must-have, especially for this price. As usual Amazon was very fast in delivering the pad, only 3 days. Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to go and play...
