I have two and the D-pads on both are atrocious. If you don't press them just right, they sometimes won't register the press. They also have a tendency to roll to the diagonals if you're holding down a direction. If you Google around, you can find instructions for modding them with a Dremel tool and a plastic container lid to make them a lot better, but the out of the box experience is pretty bad, especially for classic games that rely on the D-pad as a primary input.

I've always been a fan of Logitech gamepads. I've had a Logitech Precision for years that still works great. I think I paid about $5 for it, brand new.
