Shipping is $7-8 at least which might kill the deal for some. Also, ordering multiples won't save you on shipping (they charge the $8 for each controller apparently).
If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.

IMO these are excellent well-built game controllers that are great for everything EXCEPT games that are best with dual analog sticks, since these instead have one stick and one touchpad. For those games (shooters, etc) they're only alright. For everything else (especially retro/emulated games) they're great, and because of the touchpad they work surprisingly well as a remote control too.

Definitely a weird controller. It's made for people who want to tinker with their game controller as if it were keyboard mappings. I've owned one and it's honestly not for me, but I really appreciate the materials and craftsmanship in this thing. These are made in the USA (Buffalo Grove, IL) and shipped out from Carol Stream, IL.

They are good alternative for PC games that require a keyboard and mouse. If it can already be played on a regular controller, the regular controller is better.

Thanks OP, I own one and never used it, but lost a part for it, so rather than go looking, or find the part, I will just buy a new one.

Was about to purchase 5 to save on shipping but as OP stated, they charge individually, in for one, repped.

I love these for games that are usually played with a mouse.

I haven't used mine much so can't comment on durability, but they are pretty versatile for PC gaming, or on Raspberry Pi's for retro games. I consider $20-25 a great price for them, so anything below that is slick if you are in a market for a controller like this.

These are legitimately good* for FPS games on the couch

*When you get the controller mapping /layout dialed in.
