I have used one of these and while I wouldn’t buy it, its not bad if you’re just looking for a cheap USB stick. That said though, I agree with the general consensus that its probably better just to save up and get something better.
It’s the worst hori i had for sure (i had the dreamcast, tekken 4 and soulcal 2 ones) but still decent if you don’t play too many games dependent of multiple button presses. The buttons are absolute shit, period.
Yeah, Hori buttons are crap. They’re nice and sensitive, but they stay compressed way too long, and they seem to break down pretty easily. My MK is almost completely dead for no apparent reason, and someone else who got the same stick had his LP die on him. From what I heard, the connections on the buttons are just barely made, which is why they fail so easily.
This isn’t EX2 stick related, but I have a T5 stick and it is fine for me. I think it’s actually pretty good. But I can’t compare it because it’s my very first stick aside from playing on mas sticks at the arcade a few times.
One thing about the Hori. The shaft is shorter than traditional Sanwa sticks, so if you use wineglass or any hold where your fingers are under the ball, your hand’s going to be really cramped, and you’re probably gonna get wrist pain.
