[Factory Direct] Havit 2-Pack USB PC Game Pad With Vibration - $18 with coupon

Only $20 without the coupon. Still in stock at most locations.

I can't deny this looks real sus, and the fact that the buttons are still labelled 1-2-3-4 does not speak well for XInput compatibility. But I thought I'd post here in case someone happens to know more?

Compare: $30 at Best Buy.

After buying a SD card reader which corrupted the card and made me lose photos never again.

These will probably load malware upon plugging it into a PC.

10 day defective exchange only, fine for cheap stuff but I’d never spend big money there.

Better to save your gas and buy same thing from AliExpress, or get wireless for a bit more.

All I know about this item is that it vibrates and you can get two of them for $18. So, why the downvotes? Couldn't this be RFD's budget-friendly answer to Hitachi?

I might be even more skeptical if this was something Factory Direct had dredged up from some bargain-basement supplier, but if Best Buy is selling what appears to be the exact same item, maybe there's something to it after all..?

Staples has it too – for $50!
