The inventory of the starter kit is not bad at first read. Just what you need for your first 2 player cabinet starter kit. However there are a few concerns. Both joysticks can stick, one worse than the other if two much pressure is applied to the directions (I have already sourced a MAG STIK to replace these), the cables come with one size crimp only but the joysticks and buttons (Blue and green) come with different size terminals for the crimps and finally the 1 & 2 player buttons do not have the same type of terminals that the joystick and other buttons have (I am yet to make these work). The kit was useful for a complete beginner experimenting with control panels and software config without fear of breaking something expensive because the kit i reasonably priced. I PAC works very well but i would not buy this kit again
This pack is complete with everything you need to get going.
Ipac works well.
the only gripe I have would be the zippy sticks are not as responsive as I would have hoped for in diag bottom left etc. I think I will upgrade to better sticks soon.
The buttons are nice and clicky.
I have no doubt I will be ordering from this company again soon.
