A PlayStation 2 controller macro device.

This is a middleman between a standard PlayStation 2 controller and the console. It can also be chained through to a USB adapter or other such device, to ultimately let an original PS2 controller work with a computer.

Unfortunately, this has an limited number of button presses that it can do! I think it's 9 or 10.

A very inexpensive yet capable phone.

At a glance, it seems okay. Android and every app I've seen have many UI flaws, but that's not the X20's fault.

After a week of use, I have to say this is a fantastic phone. It's the perfect beginner's smartphone and there's nothing I've done that's been limited in any way whatsoever by its specifications. I have not run out of storage or memory.. not even close. Do note that I haven't played any games, and I probably never will.

I am really ticked that it doesn't have OTG support, so I can't use the microSD for anything but charging. Powering off, pulling my charging dongle out, removing the half-case, removing the battery cover, removing the battery and moving the CD card back and forth is an awful, awful, way for me to edit files.

  • The minimum volume is way too loud.

  • I don't think the bottom microUSB port works for a USB key.

on ChinaBuye

This is a fantastic item.

I got one black and one gold. The black looks great. The gold is okay-looking.

Very solid. Almost metal. Good grip.

The cap stays on tightly.

The MicroSD card goes in the "nose" of the reader, and is easy to insert/remove.

It's easy to pull out of a computer, even though it is fairly small.
