I got two of these gamepad used for $20 and used a playstation2 to USB adapter to play old games on my PC. They work great playing all my retro games on my PC! Since writing the first version of this review, I bought a PS2 and tested it, and it works great there as well.
This pad makes up for some shortcomings in the original PS2 controller, like the "separate buttons" D-pad (this is much better, it has nubs for the four cardinal directions and nubs for the diagonals). This works very well for 2D games like platformers or fighting games. The controllers are solid, have rumble support (of course, which I don't care too much about), and have long cords (nearly 9 foot). They are an attractive silver color with a chrome/mirror finish on the front with rubber buttons. The cords are transparent rubber with a silvery texture inside (aesthetically hiding the inner wiring). The weight of the controllers feels fine in your hands and the buttons are responsive.
