Anyway, I bought this earlier tonight at my local Walmart.
After getting it home and tearing the packaging apart, I plugged the controller in and started mapping Skulltag to it. Skulltag worked wonderfully, though using a controller was a bit awkward at first. I still need to tweak the sensitivity, but it works great otherwise.
Now, on to emulators and roms. I tried using the controller with Super Mario World and was disappointed by the lag. Controlling Mario's movement proved very difficult, although jumping and running functions worked flawlessly.
I really like the controller, it's not too heavy or light, and the retractable cable is a unique perk, but there are some cons. The lag with roms and such was one, and the cable seems VERY frail; just touching it makes the controller unresponsive until it's plugged back in. This seems to be intentional, as the sticker that was wrapped around cable advises that adjusting the length is necessary before play.
I give it a C. I may actually take it back and get a different one, or just get my money back. In such a case, can anyone recommend a good, lag-free controller? Maybe fashioned a little bit more like a 360 controller.

The 360 controller is great for 3D games that require the use of analog sticks, but in my opinion it sucks pretty badly for 2D games, mostly because of the controller's lousy d-pad. While it has a nice feel to it, its control isn't very accurate at all, and I constantly found myself doing things that I didn't really mean to do.
