We've been using this controller for two weeks with no problems. There's no noticable delay, and the batteries are still fresh.
I *heart* my Wavebird...       Product Reviews

...even though it doesn't have the rumble feature. I was kind of disappointed at first, but I hardly notice anymore! Plus, the rumble does get kind of distracting at times, doesn't it? I enjoy the fact that I can sit anywhere in the room and still be able to play. As a test, I went to my bedroom, on the other side on the house, and it still worked! I'm a pretty strenuous gamer as well, so I appreciate the fact that though I've had this remote for about a year or two I've only had to change the batteries twice. Overall, this is an awesome remote, and is well worth the price!
From a mom's perspective...       Product Reviews

We've had this controller for almost 2 years now. I bought it because my son got close to yanking the whole game system off of his dresser a few times. I was a little skeptical as to whether it would REALLY work. Well, it does, even 2 years later. We've even had a dog chew on it and it still works. Now my son sits on his bed 12 feet away and can play, no longer tethered to the system. We (I) love this controller.

I've used it for racing games like Burnout and Need for Speed, and sports games like Madden 2005 and NBA Street, and others like Mario and Animal Crossing. It seems to work fine for me - but I'm no pro gamer either, so take that for what it's worth.

I like the durability, reliability, and ease of this product. It was more than worth the money.

I can't say enough good things about this controller. Not only does it eliminate the tangle in front of your GameCube, the controller itself is not much heavier than a standard controller and has excellent battery life. Throw a couple of NiMH batteries in there and you're good to go - I've only had to recharge them two or three times, and I've had them in there for years.
If you absolutely need rumble support for a game, though, keep a wired controller on standby. Really, it's not that big a detriment.
