If any of you are using recent production 8bitdo gamepads, what is your opinion of the d-pad action? I'm trying to decide whether to buy a couple of the SN30 (SNES clone B/T controller) to go with the new Analogue Super NT. Not really sure yet that I'm even going to buy the Super NT, but if I add two controllers it'll cost almost an extra $100. That's fine if they kick ass, not fine if they suck ass. I need superb d-pad and button action, or else I might as well just use my real Super Fami wired controllers w/ extension cords.

Whaddya think??

I only have the NES/FC 30 Pro controllers so I can only speak to the quality of their d-pads, but they have my favorite d-pads of almost any controller I've used. They're not nearly as snappy as d-pads on the original NES controllers, but I think they soundly beat out the d-pads on the SNES controllers, which I found very soft and spongy. They're my go-to controllers for just about everything, and if their newest SNES revisions use the same d-pad, then I'd say they're probably pretty great.

8bitdo controllers are awesome. The fell is exactly the same of a brand new snes controller. I have 2 snes one and 2 nes30 pro and wow. (I used them in usb mode)

My only issue with the NES30 Pro D-Pad (the only 8bitdo controller I have) is how easy it is to catch a second direction when holding a button. Eg, holding right will usually give me right/up or right/down. It might just be me being bad with the controller though lol.

It feels really good to use, I can say that much. And my irritation aside, I would recommend them if this D Pad is anything to go by.
