Perhaps I live in a society which embraces mediocrity, or maybe other buyers have never used the originals (the originals could vary in manufacturing region and quality); this controller feels "third-party". The plastic and button presses, shoulder buttons, and I doubt the longevity, esp. that of the D-pad, which, unlike the original, can mash straight downwards.
I can tell by feel the differences between these and my MK-1653's (Made in Japan), SJ-6000, or MK-80116/HSS-0101 - the Saturn Model 2's. The originals are, subjectively, some of the best controllers for 2D gaming produced, so I wouldn't expect these to be truly comparable at this price. For casual players, I can see them being the best Genesis USB controllers for the money.
The thing that gets me about this particular product is that they really push it as "Original Quality", which it isn't. It's (yet another) third-party controller which stands out by being officially-endorsed and getting the aesthetics right. How well has SEGA performed at cultivating quality in its products over the years, post-Genesis/Saturn/DC?
It is compatible with the upcoming SEGA Genesis Mini, and it must be coincidence that the Mini has no 6-button controller included.
It "looks good" and is functional enough, but not the same as using an original, which can be used with a USB adapter.
I hope that the SEGA Genesis Mini's included 3-button controllers hold more to the original quality some used to know, and some still do.
